Welcome to the forum and what the hell is a cylinder adjustment? I've been working on my own cars for over 40 years and have never heard of such a thing. Perhaps you have a faulty coil, plug or plug wire. I'd start with those items and see what happens. Make sure you use whatever the OEM type and # plugs. Aftermarket plugs suck. The engineers put a specific plug in these cars for a reason.

I know, Joe, but "cylinder adjustment" to me means an adjustment to DebbieK's bank account and that's all.
