      Why delete it? There's nothing to gain from doing so.

      If it's not working, it's much less of a headache to just fix it.

      Yes, a temp sensor that reads cold when the engine is hot (or vise versa) will cause hard or no start conditions.

      So it ran, and now that he did all this work, it no longer runs?

      I'd start at the ignition coil. Did he install a cheap aftermarket one? Throw the old one back in, if it fires up, go get an OE...

      Time to break out the service manual and start checking the timing. There's a first time for everyone.

      Clogged or stuck shut vent. You should have an EVAP code for it too.

      That is odd. The car should run without a cam signal. I'd scan with VCDS and see what, if any, faults it's throwing before proceeding. And make sure you've got the timing marks properly lined up....

      Mods like this are ALWAYS relevant.

      Definitely start by looking for vacuum/boost leaks. What DV are you running?

      Woah woah. Back the truck up. Now we need a complete mod list, EVERYTHING that's been done to the car. Then we have to start over again.

      This information should have been in the original post,...

      This engine (even going back to ABA in the 90's) isn't just a mechanical air pump. It's a computer controlled air pump.

      The computer controls things like ignition timing and rev limits. Stock...

      6E? You mean BKR6E? Those are not the correct spark plugs for AEG and may cause a misfire.

      You cleaned them 500 miles ago, or replaced them 500 miles ago? You can't clean clean those plugs (or any modern plugs for that matter). You should be using NGK BKUR6ET-10 plugs.

      Get rid of the...

      Are you sure it's the manifold? Usually it's the flex section. Don't think I've ever seen a 2.0 manifold crack.

      But as mentioned above, using anything other than the proper manifold would...

      It is odd that compression was initially low in #2 and now is low in #1, yes. If the rings in #1 were bad, it should have been obvious on the first test.

      They could very well be bad. How old are the spark plugs? Is the coil new OE from the dealer, or cheap aftermarket?

      Is it doing this all the time, or just in the rain?

      Palm? They still make those things?

      Yeah VCDS as he said above. www.ross-tech.com, the lite version will work on anything pre-CAN and is only $99.

      If the belt was off, they'd all be low.

      Anything's possible. Gotta figure out where the compression is going.

      Got your PM, thanks for the edit.

      Maybe it wasn't a misdiagnosis then. But which cylinder is low is irrelevant. Do a leak down test to see why #1 is low. Either way, the head will have to come...

      Sounds like the problem was not properly diagnosed.

      Were the valves checked for leakage? Piston checked to be sure it's making the complete stroke?
