98 ford esscort 2.o SOC
Hi my friend has this old escort but likes the car . The issue is wont smog because it shows a 302 error Misfire number 2 cylinder. I checked the plug, wire, and injector but still not helping, It seems to be dead totally on the cylinder after it warms up. I checked the compression and it is a bit low on that cylinder like 30 PSI below the others at 120 could this cause the miss code? and can it be a head gasket?
