You cant a compression tester at auto zone and then remove all you spark plugs. Then screw the compression tester into each cylinder then hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank the engine ten revolutions and record the number. Before doing that pull the injector and ignition fuses. Also did you make sure there were no blown fuses?
