I have several issues that I would like to have some light shined upon.

I took the OBDII codes from the computer and this is what it gave me.

P0301 Code - Cylinder #1 Misfire
P0302 Code - Cylinder #2 Misfire
P0303 Code - Cylinder #3 Misfire
P0304 Code - Cylinder #4 Misfire

So the engine is misfiring. The car has some serious valve ticking or what it seems like to be valve ticking. My last engine died and that had rod knock, definitly a different noise. I have a messed up exhaust header gasket that leaks. When the car is cold it just doesn't want to move at all. Its winter here so the temps are around 30ish. if the car is cold it has no pickup whatsoever. It has to sit till its about 1/2 way to normal operation temps before it will budge, even then its extremely sluggish for what a 2.2 should be. The ODBII scanner did list several things as well...


Not sure what it meant. (cept I know what the misfires mean)

Not sure what to do from here. I'm thinking I'll soon be performing another swap...not really looking forward to it. Unless its something worth fixing. Any takers?
