i had a 94 that ran into problems like that with very rough idles and misses. i get about five different codes from injectors to oxygen sensor. turned out my negative wire from the battery was so corroded inside the insulation it was causing all sorts of problems. bought new cable and ends from canadian tire $40.00 and installed (had to clean the connection to the block with sand paper) but fixed all my problems after that.

Have you ever had the catalytic converter changed. Over time the pellets inside will melt together and this will make the care very very sluggish like it does not want to run. You may want to try that.

The only thing left is the injector or a vacuum leak on the manifold gasket sucking air in and causing a lean condition. Thats is its the only common issue providing you dont have a head gasket issue leaking coolant on that cylinder and the compression and valves are not leaking. The old spark plug should show a coolant issue if present. The white part will be shiney if you have a coolant loss. If the coolant is looking real dark you should have the cooling system checked for gas being pushed into the cooling system on compression stroke thru the head gasket.

Hello! There is a device called a purge valve; located in the back/right of the engine compartment next to the throttle body. The original fault was a "mass evap. leak code. Changing the gas cap was the correct, least expensive move. The purge valve is the likely culprit. If the catalytic converter was at fault a code indicating; Cat., or O2 sensors would have been set. If the valve can not open to purge the vapor pressure will give the faults you are seeing. Also if valve remains open auto will not run right anyway. Evaporator problems are unrelated to converter trouble. I suggest you replace the purge valve. There is also a vent valve located back by the gas tank; It is a part of this very complex system. Give that valve a good visual inspection (broken or worn wires/connectors or loose hose) before you purchase the purge valve.
