What do you think's wrong here? (vid)
Pretty much just listen to the clip.. This is at the muffler and it's always idling like this. I can feel the car shake a little bit when it's making the popping every 2 or 3 ones.

Also it seems to still do it when revved up and things changed are pcv valve, bunch of vacuum hoses, cap and rotor, plug wires, plugs, fuel filter, cleaned in the intake manifold, cleaned the egr and all the tubes for it.

Had a EGR check engine light that would stay on but now it went away and hasn't came back..

was it doing this prior to your repairs? if not double check all your work, especially the firing order and vac lines

loosen up all ur plug wires to make them easy to remove from the spark plug, start car, pull one plug wire up at a time off of the plug and listen for a change in idle and listen for a spark jumping from the plug wire. if the idle doesnt change on any one of the cylinders you have a problem with that cylinder whether it be spark or fuel or compression. if it idles down on all cylinders do a compression test. baslcally your looking for a weak cylinder or a dead cylinder

Sounds like a vacuum leak is causing a lean miss.

Also my car takes a second to start up... It cranks kinda slow and takes about 2 seconds to actually start

the starter is new-ish

I took off the wires and it went down with each one and then I did a compression test...

1- 130
2- 150
3- 120
4- 150

....... I just did a compression test like 2 months ago and the were all at 155 or 160.... What is making them go down so bad? I really don't have the money right now to buy a new engine... =(
