Run a compression test. If you know which cylinder is missing you'll only need to test that one. If it tests very low or zero it's a burned valve. If you don't know which cylinder is missing, run a complete compression test on all cylinders. If 1 tests very low or zero that's the one that's missing. Same deal. Burned valve on that cylinder. If all cylinders test good (around 150 PSI or higher) it's going to be a fuel problem. Such as a bad fuel injector since the ignition parts are new. One last thing to look at on the missing cylinder, is the spark plug tip wet with gasoline? If so, the cylinder is getting fuel. HTH. -Jim

Thanks I'll try it
