dead cylinder

Been trying to find the cause of my misfire in my Carrera and today I went to another trusted mechanic I know who had time to check my car. He pulled number 1 plug wire and sure enough there was no change the way that the motor ran. Pull the other plugs and the rpm's go down. He did the dollar bill test and it showed that my exhaust was sucking as well and blowing out. He then checked my new number 1 injector and it was clicking fine. I also have spark. Valves have been adjusted so I am very bummed because I feel something is very wrong with the number 1 valves. Just not a good Wednesday.
