Hi guys, my EF GLI falcon is running on 5cylinders i think, It sounds like its missing, and when i pull number 1 spark lead out while its running it makes no difference, unlike the others.

Now, number 1 spark lead is sparking because i put it against the chassie and its sparking


What could it be?


Cheers

why don't you swap the sparkplug between no1 &no2
if the problem moves to no2, then you've got your answer
