Ok, I would assume you know how to do a comp. test but perhaps you don't. Look it up. Here's a hint, motor has to be warmed up. Another hint, throttle has to be open. Also good idea to have battery on a charger. By all means this is not all the **** you have to do, so look it up if you didn't do all these things and feel competent. And please, OMG, use damn capitalization, periods, apostrophes, and all that other grammar **** your supposed to be introduced to in elementary school. Is it really that hard? Come on, not that hard. You can turbo your car but can't hit the shift button or the one 2 spaces to the left of it?

You must go to the miata section, they are not directly in the ARP section. Weird thing too, I taped miata in the search box and nothing appears?

Ok first off I did hold the throttle open unplugged the injectors and ignitor pulled all the plugs then ran it only thing was not warmed up but what would it matter if there all the same when its cold should mean nothing is seriously wrong sorry when I'm on the computer I don't wanna feel like I'm in school maybe i just wanna type however what are you an old English teacher? And isn't this a car forum not a grammar forum???? but thanks to everybody for the help Im gonna get a torque wrench, air compressor, and leakdown gauge and do all these things mentioned above as soon as I get some money

This post isn't going to help you but, I agree, use capitalization and punctuation. It makes it easier to read and therefore, more people will be willing to read it. I know that when i see a big block of non-punctuated, non-capitalized, misspelled garbage, It makes me not want to read it and I usually just skip over it. Punctuation and capitalization were invented for a reason. Use them! Moral of the story is, the better you type, the more help you will get.

Oh my, I'm definitely NOT an English teacher. I suck at spelling and a lot of stuff. Look, I'm trying my best to help you, so be gratefull for that. I have to read you post 2 or 3 times before I understand it because I can't tell when one thought stopped and another begins. It would require little effort on your behalf to type clearly to better convey your messages.

The end result of course would be the readers would better understand you and be able to help you. It's to your benefit, no? Do whatever you want, but some people refuse to read post that are written in caps lock, huge paragraphs with no breaks, no punctuation or capitalization, etc. I'm not calling you out for misspelling something, I'm not trying to be a grammar natzi. Just saying you could try to do better and it would probably get you more responses to your questions. Nobody has to help you, you have to earn it, so to speak. Refusing to follow any grammar rules just because you can is not gonna help you get the responses your looking for. If anything, it will just get you off topic criticisms....

But you do whatever floats your boat.

If you're burning coolant, one (or sometimes two right next to each other) of the plugs will be shiny and clean, compared to the other 3.. It sounds as if you are not burning coolant to me.

leakdown test. if air comes out of the plug hole beside the one you're blowing into, head gasket. air coming out of the intake, intake valve. air coming out the tailpipe, exhaust valve. air out the dipstick hole, piston rings or hole in the piston. any combination, either a f**ked motor or you're not at top dead center.
