Runnin on 9

Drove my truck the other day and could hear these weird pops coming from the exhaust- and I noticed my shifter shaking a lot. Definitely not running on all 10.

Go the truck home and used my laser heat gun on the headers to see which cylinder wasn't firing. Front drivers side. When I wiggle the spark plug wire for the cylinder with the engine running I get electrocuted. The wire does look melted a little bit too.

I got the wires like 4 years ago. I got them from a member here- they are blue- i don't know the brand. And also installed demon coils.

Should have new wires tomorrow.
Can you guys think of anything else that might be an issue while the intake manifold is off? Its a real bitch to take it off and I only want to do it once.
Thanks

Its not that bad just a long 1/4 inch extension with a t20 bit... I think its a t20. Only takes about 20min to have the intake off. If your lucky you could reuse the gaskets

Its just a PITA but its not impossible or anything. Ive done it 3 times now and have gotten faster each time ive done it. Just be sure to plug up the holes with something so debris does not fall down into the engine or you'll really be in pain.

I need to do mine too. Missed bad under a load. Plug wires are originals.
I have new wires and coil packs but I keep putting it off.

Mine had exact same symptoms, popping noise from the engine, cylinder 1 wasnt firing and ended up being a snapped valve spring and bent a valve.

Iím having a nightmare trying to get mine repaired in the U.K.

Really hope yours is something simple unlike mine has turned out.

Holy crap really? I doubt mines that bad. Especially because I was electrocuted. lol

Hope you don't have the same issue I had, broken valve spring NO Compression.. It went to Tony forged and back, just turned 1800 miles.
