Customer Question

Hi ? It's 2.47 AM can not sleep, worried about my Honda Hrv 1999. It is dropping a cyl at idle and low laboured revs.
I have replaced the s/plugs and leads and ign coil. and now the malfunction w/light comes on, turning off no light for a short distance, then it comes back on.
I have checked fuel cap ok. and can not see anything else ?
I am thinking about a compression test next.
All this emission control and computer stuff is all new to this 1946 model
any ideas

Hi I'm Kevin the next check is compression test I suspect you have a cracked valve as it's only at idle .the compression test will show this and is easier than spending any more money on parts
