Engine wont start after running out of gas

  • 1989 FORD FALCON
  • 189 MILES

I have been trying to fix the problem with my car. I ran it out of gas and now tried to start it 3 months later, it took about 30 minutes to get it to turn over and now it wont even idle and is missing in the 1st two cylinders. I have checked injectors/ fuel rail. All injectors are squirting. I have run about 40 dollars has through it with injector cleaner replaced spark plugs all plugs are sparking correctly. But it continues to run badly. It wont even idle by itself and suggestions?

Check the compressions at 1 & 2 you may have a blown head gasket between the cylinders.
