Engine Performance problem
1991 Nissan Sentra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
I have the 1991 Sentra. I recently put a new distributer on the car, replaced all plugs and wires as well as a new cap and button. I have great spark coming out of the distributor, and to each plug. I can pull the wire off #1 and there is no difference in the cars perfomance. Pull #2 and the car almost dies. I pulled the plug from each cylinder, and 2, 3, and 4 were perfectly burning plugs. Number 1 was COVERED in oil and gas. The car runs as long as it is floored, but when od kicks in, the car shakes and bucks. I am sure it is from only running on 3 cylinders. I run a compression check, and it was about 140? I am stumped. Anyone have any ideas?
