Really need to know the model of the car?¿

Me personally would look for water down the spark plug holes!

gee i dunno why...

maybe he phuked it.... lol

if the mechanic can accurately tell you it's dropped 2 cylinders then why cant he tell you whats wrong ?

btw if a 4 cylinder drops 2 cylinders, it won't run.

no a 4 cyl that drops 2 cyls can still run, sometimes quiet smoothly too!. cars dont just drop 2 cylinders, could be something to do with coil/s. really need more info to be able to help.
