    it is possible that something catastrophic has happened
    or maybe not. if you lost a coil, fuel may have washed
    down the cylinder walls. remove #1 and #2 plugs and add a
    small amount of engine oil in the plug hole. put the plugs back in and turn the engine over a few turns. you may need to do this several times before the compression
    comes up. then you will need to find out the code number
    for the check engine light, fix what caused this and replace the plugs.

    I agree with overbys.
    The firing order is: 1-6-5-4-3-2
    The left bank (driver side) 1-3-5, the other 2-4-6
