need more info. How do you know your car is missing? check engine light flashing? codes stored in computer? when does it misfire? idle, cruise, under acceleration, all the time? Why did you do the timing chain and heads? When you took the engine apart did you find any problems? did you have your heads resurfaced and pressure test them?

a scanner will help you find out which cylinders are missing and then you can concentrate on what is affecting those cylinders

threw timing chain..which in turn bent the valves. used heads installed. Compression test on all the cyl good. Car misses all the time. Installed new coil. Car ran fine for a few minutes..then started to miss again. Now it just misses even at idle. No check engine light is on...I thought he said he scanned it and no codes came up

you should use a scanner that has a misfire counter. While the car is running it will show all the cylinders and which ones are missing and how much they are missing. Then you know what cylinders to check out
