If the cylinder isn't firing, it can cause a bad odor. Also, a plugged catalytic converter can cause power loss. As far as the #2 cylinder, did he say it was low on compression? If so, you need to check compression two ways for me. Let me know if that is the issue so I can explaine what to do. REMEMBER, anything is repairable. It becomes a cost issue.
Just to add to this one you can rent a compression tester at auto zone if its low compression on just the number 2 cylinder its probably a burnt valve not seating correctly.Thats what i have usually found on those engines.
Saturntech... What do you think, broken ring or valve issue?
As i posted in my response i said probably a burnt valve.
I didn't even see that. Go figure
