Well that would indicate that the two cylinders on the left side are not running. It is rare (but not unheard of) to have two cylinders die like that at the same time, fortunately, there is one common thing that runs both those cylinders: the coil. There are two coils, one for each side of the engine. If the left coil is not operating, then the left cylinders will not run, and they will be cold like you describe.
