Check the oil for coolant. Do a compression check.

Compression is great on all cylinders,lowest cylinder is pushing 120psi. no coolant in oil. Its Driving me nuts

LoL Ihate trouble sshooting. If all compression and no oil leaks then my guess is to the 3 things that make a engine run. Air fuel spark. Is it getting gas? Is air flow good? Does it spark while the rotor turns? Maybe a bad cap bad rotor? Fouled plugs burnt wires? Ditry air filter?
