Default Correcting timing

Anyone have any advice on where to start? MY compression is good, leakdown is good except #4 has 10% cold. I gotta retry hot. Do you think a coil is faulty or just bad gas?

i went to get a tune and he said my "timing was all over the map"

he said either bad gas or do a compression test
and its none of those than possibly weak coil

Your tuner mentioned a bad tank of gas and compression test, so just base on that I'm guessing your ecu/car is not happy. I would venture on to say without getting to technical that your car is knocking enough to where your IAM/timing is dropping and you're tuner is trying to figure out the problem so he suggested a few things that maybe the culprit at hand so he can tune your car for power. I'm leaning towards a bad tank of gas because compression is not low and cylinder leakage test is somewhat decent for a cold motor.

I'm not looking for someone to pin point my problem. More looking for advise or if anyone has had this problem and can lead me in a direction to not loose more money. It may just be bad gas which I hope and I hope I get good gas for next time

And I'm not sure if the car has other things on it.

Could be bad gas, but it's certainly bad grammar.
