I have a 1993 V6 toyota pickup with 164,000 miles. Cylinder #6 has zero compression. can I drive it with just 5 cylinders without causing more damage or is it worth $1300 to get it fixed?


Depending on what the $1300 covers, then this is likely a great price. You can get away with it for a short time, but it will damage other components and require a total rebuild instead of just the re-ring job / head rebuild. This is not a minor problem, this needs to be addressed immediately. You are likely burning excessive amounts of oil and/or "washing" that cylinder with fuel (solvent) removing all the lubrication for the moving parts in that cylinder.

Need the firing order 3.1 v6


The 1995 Camaro did not come with a 3.1 V6, but instead a 3.4 V6.
Assuming this is what you meant, the correct firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6.
Here is a representation with the cylinders labeled in order. 5 6 3 4 1 2 ---nose of car---

Loud bang, then drop in power, now car running rough!


Get a compression tester and find out if you blew a cylinder. You'll need to test all cylinders. Your most likely running on 7 cylinders instead of 8 or 5 instead of 6 if you have the V-6.

What is the firing order for a 1995 bucik cetury 3300 block motor? Harmonic Balancer was replaced and I need to know if it will throw off the timing.


Did you mean 3100 engine instead of 3300?

1-3-5-6-2

By-the-way, the ODD cylinders 1-3-5 are on the side of the engine closest to the firewall, with the number one cylinder closest to the passenger side of the vehicle and the number 5 cylinder closest to the driver's side. Obviously, the EVEN cylinders 2-4-6 are on the side of the engine closest to the front of the vehicle with the number 2 cylinder closest to the passenger side, and the number 6 cylinder closest to the driver's side.

95 maxima rough idle


The injector could definitely trigger a misfire code, but you also mentioned that you had a mass airflow sensor code , that code code be responsible for te sluggish moment of the vehicle and rpm going up and down. However if you have a misfire onCyl#6 and the coil and the plug is good the ONLY other thing to cause a mis-fire would be the injector. To check the injector get a NOID light, you can get one at almost any auto-parts place. To use unplug injector plug from the bad injector and connect it to NOID light the light should have a steady PULSE/ligt flickering. If light flickers fine then injector is bad and will need to be replaced. If light doesn't flicker or flickers intermittently then you may have a bad wiring to that injector. Check if wiring is good, then you may have a bad cam sensor or sensor gear. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
