Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Cylinder one is not firing, multiple misfire codes.  The other 3 are fine.  Coils, spark plugs, and fuel injectors are new.  Time Belt looks good.  What else could be causing cylinder 1 to not fire?

Check the compression on that cylinder. If it's low it's probably a burned valve. HTH. - Jim

The not firing is due to no spark. Even though the coils and plugs are all new there is no spark. All we can figure is maybe there is a short somewhere. It's getting fuel, too.
