Alright well I had it at the shop yesterday and today. He checked it out breifly yesterday and cylinder 1 had no compression. So of course I was freaking out all night lol. He called back today and said it was just a broken valve spring. Hopefully that'll fix her up I miss driving it (drivin a 95 intrepid in the meantime) lol

#1 is easy to replace. I've seen 2 cars in my shop that had a misfire due to a broken valve spring.

Ya he replaced the springs on cyl. 1 and she runs awesome with that and new plugs and wires on it. Bill was 280 bucks all labor, I work at oreillys so the springs were 10 and he had it done in basically one day. Pretty happy about it hope this may help others in the future
