Well that was pretty much what I have been driving around in for some time.

I decided to change my pulgs and leads today, finding out two things.

The spark plugs were fried;

I have only been running four cylinders as leads numbers 4 and 6 were dead.

Anyway the question is could any damage occured due to 4 and 6 not firing?

shouldnt, but over some time it could, as im not sure if a ef ecu is smart enough to shut down a cyl. if it didnt then u would have alot of unburnt fule going into ur car and f**k that, and also the fule would have dialuted the oil as well.

your catalytic converter would be totally stuffed,,maybe diluted oil,,but shouldn't really cause to much damage..just replace all the leads and plugs so they match and start her up..oh and replace your oxygen sensor,,they don't like raw fuel..

it would have been chugging like a tractor if it was only running on 4 cyl. if it wasn't then all plugs were still firing. some more efficiently and effective than others obviously.

The chugging was what brought my attention to there being an issue in the first place. All plugs and leads have been changed and there is definately a noticable difference.
