Finally got around to doing a compression test. Compression seemed about the same on all four cylinders. When doing cylinders 2 & 3 the car would run very rough, but doing cylinders 1 & 4 it wouldn't start.
The needle would start out at 90 then it would jiggle a little bit, drop to 60 and jiggle some more down to 30, then it would hover prob around 15. Like I said, it did this on all four.

|_AdriaN_||I took this off and cleaned it because it was sucking closed at the valve. I've tried cleaning the valve but it still sucks closed. I think this may be a problem but it keeps throwing a cylinder 2 misfire no matter what. I haven't had a chance to do a compression test but I'm pretty sure it's something internal.|

|ImmortalMort||how does your pcv tube look? off the valve cover into the intake, just below the throttle body. Mine was causing some driveability issues, bad idle, ect. I replaced the whole tube assembly (not the valve, however) and my SPI has been working great so far.. not the answer your looking for but a possible solution to future drivability isues|

|jesusamares||Have you checked your EGR gasket it, my old 2.0 had the same issue I swear I changed everything on that car and the day I changed out the EGR gasket the car started to work again.|

Swapped injectors around on 2 & 3 and still throwing a Cylinder 2 misfire. I'm going to compression test it when I get a chance, nobody to help today.
I'm hoping it's not something internal but if the compression test shows #2 has bad compression, what's the possible culprits?

Thanks guys, I will try to get around to fixing these soon and report back.
To clarify, the oil is on the part spark plug down by the electrode(inside the block) not the outside. I took the valve cover off and the gasket didn't look too good as it was grooved in spots which I thought was weird.

|follown||Yes oil in the plug is due to bad valve cover gasket. I replaced mine a few months ago because it was leaking outside and once I started I found oil in 2 plugs.|

|Indy'sexclusiveZx3||Maybe just a leaky valve cover gasket that would be my guess|

That's what I was thinking... It affected the performance but not like the other 3.
Is the oil on the plug a sign of anything?
