I finally did a compression test on my coupe ('87 SPFI, FWD auto) and the #1 cylinder failed badly. Pulled the valvecover off of the passenger side and it appears I have a dropped exhaust valve.... argh... so now I'm looking for an engine since this one has 256k miles on it and I bet its going to be a bit tired...

That blows. Might explain the lack of starting.

My wagon has a nice SPFI engine, and the whole car is for sale :lol:
