Two of the cylinders 5 and 6 are not firing on my 1994 Cutless Ciera. Any idea what might cause this?

Asked by Sep 14, 2016 at 06:29 PM about the 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 4 Dr S Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car suddenly started using lots of gas.  When I checked the engine, cylinders 5 & 6 were not firing.  I checked by doing a power balance test.  Nothing happened when I pulled 5 and then again when I pulled number 6.  What would correct this?

Test 5 and 6 at the coil pack or distributor as the case may be for possible cracked cap. Also test wires end to end for continuity
