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!

i had the same problem with my cavy i changed coil packs, plugs an wires, still nothin crawled up under the car to get a better looks an i had two wires that had drug the ground an got cut under your front louver is a black tube thing full of wires, two run up by your passenger side wheel see if they r brok eor cut
