Drove to store, came out and would not start.towed home.checked fuses and relays-ok. replaced wires and plugs and valve cover gasket (oil in valley around plugs).checked for spark-ok.pulled front apart checked timing, crank at tdc, intake and exhaust marks were at 12 oclock position belt looked good. borrowed and did a comression test on 1 and 3 cylinders. #1 had 75psi and #3 had 85 psi. whats min?

It is a Valve Cover Gasket. You can get a new one at any Auto Parts Store. To make this repair last longer, Do not get the Cheap one, Get a Felpro Gasket and it will Quadrupel the Gasket Life. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

p0560 is system voltage problem. open or short between the battery positive and the ecm.CHECK ALL FUSES. dosnt matter what they are labeled under dash and under hood replace any that are bad and retry to start. no start then check voltage to ecm grounds to. i dont have a wireing diagram to give you but for a small fee or free the dealer can make you a copy.make sure all the wires that go to battery terminals are not corroded and are making good contact [verified with volt meter]. if after all checks ok then replace ecm. as a side note i havent had to change one ever.
