Has good compression, most spark plugs and wires are good but there are a couple that when you pull them off while the engine is running doesn't pull the engine down a whole lot.
So if anyone knows of something that will unstick a stuck valve and advice on the miss part of it let me know!
Thank ya for your time,

P.S sorry to all that know me on here... i have been neglecting to put any time on here due to being busy and buying headaches such as this pickup lol
if you have good compression you do not have a valve stuck open. Most likely you have a spark distribution issue
