    hey guys, I have a quick question. the eg coupe I got was running beautiful before. but I didn't run it for a month or so, I went to start it today and it's misfiring on the first cylinder. I checked the wiring and everything seems fine and it's firing on all the others. what do you think happened? and how can I fix it, I really hope it didn't bend a valve.

    oh also it has a d15b7. it has a pretty low idle as well. I'm running stock everything. I it's actually firing on all clyinders (spark wise) but it's not making a difference on the first cylinder (closest to cam gear)

    You're not getting spark at that cylinder? Check for spark by removing the plug wire on the cylinder in question, get a long screwdriver and stick it in the end of it and hold it near some metal in the engine bay. A spark should appear between the screwdriver and the metal grounding point.
