My brakes are pulsating

It could be a warped rotor or an out-of-round drum but it might also be loose wheel bearings, a bent axle shaft or loose brake parts. Or you might just be feeling you ABS kicking in. If it is one of those parts and you need to replace it, consider looking online for used auto parts.

Loose compression engine

Not sure what loose compression is, but low compression would not be affected by changing the plugs unless the wrong plugs were installed.
The timing belt may have broken, but again that would not be caused by replacing the plugs. I would run a compression test to verify the problem.

I have a constant miss in my engine. I've changed the wiring, cap & rotor, plugs and fuel filter. What could be the problem?

Have you performed a compression check? You could have a sticking or Mal-adjusted valve, bad cylinder or other problem -- the test would reveal your answers more precisely...

You'll need to have a compression test done, it sounds like you may have a burnt valve in cyl.#1. If the compression is good, then I'd look at checking the injector in that hole, it may be plugged.

1997 silverado 5.7L I am going to replace the intake gasket because it is leaking. It is buring 1-1/2 quarts of oil or more between oil changes. I suspect a vavle job may be in order but have never done...

Bad valve's will not burn oil, bad valve will cause a cylinder miss fire, due to you will loose cylinder compression, I would replace the valve seal's, Also do a wet and dry compression test, do a dry test, and write down reading's, then add oil in cylinder, and do another compression test, if in any cylinder's compression jumps higher then dry test, that's where your loosing oil, weak piston ring's.

1985 Toyota PU 22RE engine miss

Reinspect the number one injector. It's not supposed to buzz, it is supposed to click. It may be sticking open (bad), or the injector ground wire may be shorted, keeping the injector energized.
