Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.
I am sorry for the delay in getting a response to you. Sometimes we get alot of customers and just can not keep up. Sometimes you just have to wait for the correct tech to login.
Do you even still need help. Sometimes customers seek help elsewhere or figure it out on their own before we get to each and everyone.
I am sure I can help a lot or a little at least something if you give me a chance and work with me. I am going to get an answer to you regardless if you reply or not sooner or later.
If your concern is urgent reply and let me know and if you have anything more you think will help me, to help you, let me know. I work on here normally 3pm-3am central.
Thanks Chris

Yes I need my help.

We need to check the basic things. Those include, compression testing, checking for spark to these misfiring cylinders as well as injector pulse. Have you done these or need help doing so?
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks Chris

(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 1 year ago.
I do not do phone calls. Would you like to get back on the list and wait yet again to see if another wants to help for the additional fee charged to you for a phone call?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I just thought it would be easier. I just put a new engine in it and sparks plugs one and two fire but three and four don't. I put a new coil in it but used the same manifold off the old engine that would still run.

Thanks, ***** ***** is the reason. Open the file below.
OHM test these wires highlighted end to end to see if they are broken, if the resistance is none 0.0. Then OHM test the wires to power and ground while disconnected at both ends to verify they are not shorted to ground or other wires. If they pass again then its the ECM.
