I am burning oil, fouls out the spark plug, swap one it about every week, i have to bring the car up to 1500 rpm during first start up or it will not stay running but when i swap plugs it starts just fine. when i pulled the engine apart i notice the exhaust valve seat on number two cylinder was recessed more than normal but i ignored it. i think it might be that, but ill i have to do a compression test to figure what the problem is.

Alright heres the deal, i did a compression test on all four cylinders and this is what the results were:
#1-135psi
#2-5psi
#3-135psi
#4-145psi
this is obvious whats wrong, did a cylinder leakage test to find that the exhaust valve is hanging open. this is going to be expensive!
