I bought a 1992 Colt Summit wagon which has 150,000 miles, and is running on two cylinders. I pulled the plug wires one at a time, and cylinders 1 and 2 are not firing. I have no engine warning light on. It was parked for several months, then I drove about 600 miles, and noticed it "hicuped" four or five times. Then it began to run rough. What type of code reader do I use to check it out? Where do I attach the code reader? Any ideas of what my problem is?

When was the last major tuned-up done on it.

Investigate why 1/2 are not firing-could be sparkplug and a loss of compression. You need to pull a CSI-101 to get to this culprit and report back your findings

I do not know when the last major tune-up was done. The plugs looked quite new, except one had a closer gap.

What is a CSI-101, and what do I need in the way of equipment and instruction to do it?

CS-101 is my version on extensive investigation to a specific problem meaning in/out diagnosis.

My advice is to have it tune-up and go from there and if it persists comeback
