I have a 1996 Z24. Cylinder #3 quit firing and I've ruled out the spark plug, injector, and coil. Any ideas?  Thanks, Paul

Hi pclink! You have answered the spark question. It's now down to checking compression and fuel. A fuel chain problem with one cylinder is less likely so check the rings and valves on that cylinder. Good luck!
