Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If only a single cylinder is not firing, initial possibility to consider and/or check since "...good spark and comprestion..." would be the carb; or more specifically presence / absence of fuel in the carb bowl and its ability to deliver fuel through the intake manifold to the combustion chamber.

A simple check would be to collect the fuel from the carb of the cylinder not firing through the drain hose (bottom of the bowl) and loosening the drain screw. Note the quantity and quality of fuel. Doing the same with the other 3 carbs would give you a reference.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

No spark on rear pot new coil and power on one of the leads in to coil

Hi, Anonymous you need a wiring diagram to check the second lead there is one in the back of the service manual and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module or CDI box.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Miss on # 5 cylinder have performed comprestion


What is the problem? #5 is missing? Do you have spark for #5...Injectors don't fire. Never did never will Injectors "inject" fuel to the cylinders.

Leaking oil thru dipstick tube

if it is getting oil in the air filter box could be a busted comprestion ring allowing comprestion to build up in the block instead of pushing it out the pipe

Burnt bottom of large cast iron pot very discoloured and a certain taste seems to affect the food

Hi, Most microwaves do not allow you to put metal pot or pan in side. If sparks are coming off of pots do not use any more. You should be using proper microwave safe ware. Good luck.

I have no comprestion

mcdevito75 here, If there is enough mileage on the engine you could totally loose all compression. Remove 1 of the spark plugs and crank the motor, if you hear a chaa rush of air comming out of that cylinder you have compression and need to check something else.

I have a 1997 chevy lumina that just fouled the #4 spark plug and runs very rough, it also blows bluish somke from the exhaust, would any one know if this is a intake manifold gasket or head gasket...

sounds more like a carbon issue on the piston rings. i would run an oil cleaner such as BG #109, i have seen excellent results with this. worth a try for the price ( about $20 for a can).
