Hey folks I own a 1997 outback manual shift. Have had the car for three years. When I bought it had the head gaskets done. At one point last year the tooth sprocket failed and the timing belt was distroyed causing bent valves on number three cylinder. All idlers where checked when the head gaskets where done and the tech said they where fine... apparetly not! Anyway I replaced the valves on No 3 and did a leak down check with all cams releived. They all held the same amount of pressure. I installed new pullys and belt making sure all marks where correct and they are. They have been checked three times. So I start the car in the morning let it warm up and it has a slight missfire, as I drive it the misfire gets worse, to the point it is a dead cylinder. it's always number 1. the miss is from 1000 rpm to 2500. once it hits 2500 it smooths out and pulls hard. replaced the plug on cyl 1, wire, fuel filter, air filter. basic stuff. Any suggestions? I love the car, and don't want to get rid of it because of a miss. Thanks for the help!
