==Injector Drop Test:==
If an EFI Engine seems to be running with one Cylinder not firing, you can confirm the case and which one by disconnecting and reconnecting the Injector connectors one at a time.
===Method:===Set the Engine Idling. The Engine RPM should slow by an equal amount each time an Injector Connector is unplugged and reconnected. If the Engine does not slow down as much as the others or the disconnection makes no difference to the RPM you have located the faulty Cylinder.
The fault may be an Injector or an Injector Connector. It may still be a failed Spark Plug or Valve problem but the test is a very fast way of identifying the faulty Cylinder.
