It has good compression,but it still has 3 codes on it,PO305 cylinder 5 misfire,PO301 Cylinder misfire and PO303.When car is cold it runs fine but once it heats up it skips really bad and coils have been replaced so I know the coils are not bad.

I know my intake gaskets are leaking on my 97 lumina 3.1 , but I'am not sure the head gaskets are bad, could coolant get in the cylinders from this? I was going to pressure test the cooling system over night to see if coolant would fill a cylinder ? I wondered if the tester could make this happen and make me think head gaskets were bad? I guess I'am being lazy and don't want to do compression check 6 times.
