Hey guys
I have a 1987 Cabriolet.
1.8 8v and im not very mechanicaly inclined.
I figured out that one of my cylinders wont fire.
I checked for spark and its definetly sparking.
Can anyone help me trouble shoot this through?
Could it be the fuel injector? If so how can I check that?
Thanks for any help. Ill be watching this topic close.

Re: Little help cylinder wont fire. (LazyPirate)

If you narrowed down which one, get a glass canning jar or the like and after gingerly prying the injector up from behind the valve cover insert it in the jar and bump the key while standing out side the driver door watching the jar if no spray or not an atomized spary yep its your injector probably. Double check by cracking the line going to it and make sure there is fuel there, of course no smoking and keep a extinguisher or hose handy since atomized fuel burns very well!!
