I have a 1995 Honda Accord EX 5-speed 2.2, with 95000 miles. I been having rough idling problems. I check the sparks to see if that was the problem, the spark plugs was okay but one cylinder was working. I changed the fuel injector on the same cylinder and follow all the steps regarding the fuel pressure and things of that nature. The cylinder still wasn't still giving any power or fire. I don't know what else to do to figure out the problem. Do any one have any recommendations?

Check the compression and valve clearance.

I did the compression test and all the cylinders even the bad one was around 150PSi. The cylinder is still not firing or misfiring. I took the spark plug out and it was black on the end of it, the other spark plugs was kind of white. There is oil on the bottom of the distributor cap, but no oil inside. Not sure where that leak is coming from. I also changed the fuel injector on that one cylinder. When I first start the car, it idle fine until it heat up to normal temp. Not sure what else to do. Could it be a sensor or something. Maybe computer not responding. I dont know

Did you ohm out the plug wires? Looks does not show anything if there are internal breakages. You need an ohmmeter to test the resistance. There must be resistance and below 25k ohms.
