How many miles on it? sounds to be a stuck valve or a bent one.

SOURCE: putting distributor back in the right way

Okay. Turn the engine untill you have the crank mark lined up with the 0 on the pointer. At that point, look at the valves on #1 cylinder. They should both be closed, or in the "up" position. If they aren't, you'll have to turn it one revolution, to get to compression stroke. Now, you're ready to put the distributor in. Take the top off the cap, and position it in the hole, so that the rotor lines up with #1 on the distributor cap. If it's a newer one, take a close look inside at where #1 actually is because the newer ones are off set a little. Now, tighten the cap on, and hook up the plug wires, one at a time in the proper order and rotation. When you try to start it, it should run where it is, but you may have to turn the distributor slightly one direction or the other to make it start. Try your best to keep it running for 20 minutes or so the first time so your gaskets will set. ( not always an easy task when the valves aren't adjusted, and antifreeze can still vapour lock on you) If you need to know more, let me know.

SOURCE: Checked cylinder pressure on #1 & #5 cylinders

That sounds like a valve problem. If the valve guide drops it will allow oil down onto the valve and it will keep the valve from seating right in the closed position. That is most likely the problem. A head gasket will not usually cause a compression problem. It could also possibly be a piston ring blown but unlikely. Either way the head is going to have to come off and from there the problem will be easy to diagnose.

SOURCE: 2005 5.3 1500 pickup multi cylinder misfar

Just so I learn something

Spark plugs -wear ,seldom misfire

Injectors and Coils-need to be component
tested,before I would replace

Testing-- is using a meter,oscilloscope,etc.

Same on O2 Sensor,scope is only way to
see switching time.

I would suggest something common to
multi cyl misfires.
Because you get a code for #1,doesn't mean
that coil is bad. You may have to walk a new
coil from one cyl to the next.

CPS Sensor ?
Is there a cam sensor on that engine?

I've a 1999 mercury stable 3.0 double over head cam it got hot and cut off when cooled off chanked it up and blowing white smoke it don't seemingly to have water in the oil does that mean I have a cracked...


If your engine has overheated then more than likely you have a blown head gasket.
1. have compression checked for each cylinder.
if a cylinder shows low compression 20 lbs less than the others then you have a gasket/head job needing repaired.
2. if there is water in the oil. your engine has a blown head gasket.

aluminum heads will need to be checked at a machine shop for warpped head...and all head bolts will need replaced.

Checked cylinder pressure on #1 & #5 cylinders (the accessible ones with intake still on) and #1 showed 15lbs & #5 showed 190 lbs.The #1 spark plug was oily & fouled. No sign of water in oil....


Do this test: add a small amount of oil (no more then a shot glass worth) to the number one cylinder, and retest the compression. If the compression number comes up, the problem is a burnt valve. If it stays the same, you have a ring issue.

Need to know lbs of torque and sequence for the heads on a 1995 jeep wrangler with a 2.5


From autozone.com:
To install:

  1. Thoroughly clean the gasket mating surfaces. Remove all traces of old gasket material. Remove all carbon deposits from the combustion chambers. Lay a straightedge across the head and check for flatness. Total deviation should not exceed 0.001 in. (0.025mm).

The cylinder head gasket used on the 2.5L engine is a composition gasket. The gasket is to be installed dry. Do not use gasket sealing compound on the gasket.
  1. Fabricate 2 cylinder head alignment dowels from 2 used cylinder head bolts. Cut the head of the longest bolt off below the hex head. Then cut a slot in the top of the dowel to allow easier removal with a screwdriver.
  2. Install one dowel in bolt hole No. 10 and the other dowel in bolt hole No. 8.
  3. Place the cylinder head gasket over the dowels with the numbers facing up.
  4. Place the cylinder head over the dowels.
  5. Coat the threads of bolt No. 7 only, with Loctite PST sealant or equivalent.
  6. Install all head bolts except Nos. 8 and 10.
  7. Tighten the bolts in the sequence shown in the illustration to the following:
    1. Tighten bolts 1 through 10 in sequence to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm).
    2. Tighten bolts 1 through 10 in sequence to 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm).
    3. Recheck bolts 1 through 10 in sequence to verify that they are 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm).
    4. Tighten bolts 1 through 6 in sequence to 110 ft. lbs. (149 Nm).
    5. Tighten bolt 7 to 100 ft. lbs. (136 Nm).
    6. Tighten bolts 8 through 10 to 110 ft. lbs. (149 Nm).


During the final tightening sequence, bolt No. 7 will be tightened to a lower torque than the rest of the bolts. Do not overtighten bolt No. 7.
  1. Connect the temperature sending unit wire.
  2. Install the spark plugs.
  3. Install the compressor.
  4. Install the compressor/alternator bracket mounting bolt.
  5. Adjust the alternator drive belt.
  6. Install the air conditioning compressor drive belt.
  7. Install the intake and exhaust manifolds.
  8. Install the power steering pump bracket.
  9. Install the pushrods. Keep them in order!
  10. Install the rocker arms. Keep them in order!
  11. Thoroughly clean the mating surfaces of the head and rocker cover and install as outlined earlier in this section.
  12. Install the air cleaner.
  13. Connect the hoses at the thermostat housing.
  14. Connect the battery ground.
  15. Fill the cooling system.

    What is the cylinder head torque on a 1993 Jeep 2.5 L engine


    You may have to grab a sheet of paper and draw this out.
    Standing in front of the engine, on the left side of the head, assign the bolts the following numbers from from to back: 8,4,1,5,9. On the passenger side, front to back, assign the bolts the numbers: 7,3,2,6,10.

    Step 1: Tighten all bolts to 22 ft lbs.
    Step 2: Tighten all bolts to 45 ft lbs.
    Step 3: Tighten bolts #1,2,3,4,5,6 to 110 ft lbs.
    Step 4: Tighten bolt #7 to 100 ft lbs
    Step 5: Tighten bolts #8,9,10 to 110 ft lbs.

    Be sure to follow that procedure so you don't warp your head or damage the head gasket.

    After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,


    Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

    If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

    If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

    I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
