At least at this point it's isolated to cyl #6. Have you checked the injector? connections? I know you stated that you replaced a lot of the ignition system, but have you verified spark on #6?


Yes have done all, do you think it could have jumped time?

Mark Grignon

I would think there would be a lot more codes if it jumped time. Have you performed a compression test?


Gonna do that in the morning
