One cylinder broke, and the Grand Prix now is only running on five cylinders.

Was this a mechanical failure, or is one cylinder not firing?

There has to be a story behind that

So, what is wrong with the cylinder? You need to find out what you are missing (gas, compression, ignition) to be able to help you.

Yes, there is a story behind it. Kinda hard to explain, but it has something to do with the edit feature and a moderator with a good nose.

Yes, it was, because my Grand Prix was accidentally out of control and crashed into my girlfriend'* yellow Camry.

To help clarify, can you take pictures of the broken things and post them?
