Two Cylinders not Firing

Thanks for any help or insight

1986 2.0 Si

Cylinders 3 and 1 do not ignite. I hear all injectors clicking and checked for spark on all four.

Replaced:
  • Ignition Coil
  • Distributor Cap and Rotor
  • Spark Plugs and Wires

I'm thinking it could be dirty injectors, ignition igniter, or dirt inside the cylinders. There is some gunk around the spark plugs and some of it could have gotten inside.

So, what else can I test for? Thanks again

Re: Two Cylinders not Firing

Try some of the Lucas fuel injector cleaner it works the best for dirty injectors. Also check your oil make sure its not over-full than is required. Have any codes come up, codes might still show up even if the check engine light doesn't show up. Its worth a try.
