did you clear the code?

Yes. I cleared the code after I installed the coil and plugs. It was good for about two days before it turned on again.


now you need to check that injector and also run a compression test on that hole.

Okay. I'll have to take it to a mechanic to get those test done. I appreciate your help Bud.
