Re: [DML] 911, engine running on 3 cylinders MORE INFO

Andy - That peg is called the rotor...

You may also have a fuel injector problem on those cylinders.  If you 
have a timing light, put it on one of the bad cylinders and see if it
fires.  If you don't have a light, remove one of the spark plugs from the 
bad cylinders.  Attach it to the spark plug wire and hold the side of the 
plug against the block with a pair of pliers gripping the spark plug
boot and start the car.  If you see a spark, you have a fuel delivery
problem, not an ignition problem.
