97 ford taurus: Cylinder 2 misfire

Hi...I have a 1997 ford taurus....My cars service engine soon light was flashing so i took it to advanced auto parts where they scanned it...the problem is "cylinder 2 misfire detected"
My dad would like to know how to correct this problem himself and what needs to be purchased. I too am having Cyl 2 misfire problems on a 2000 taurus 3.0 flex fuel engine. It started during a 300 mile trip. check engine light came on. Later when it was flashing, the car was down on power. I have swapped plugs and wires to no avail. The coil pack was replaced. So was the fuel injector. Cyl 2 misfire still returns within a day and there is a noticeable miss.
Help!

Well..fuel injection systems are more than the electronic part. I suspect you are dealing with compression or injector fouling issues..

How do you set the service engine soon light on a 97 Ford Thunderbird?


The light can only be reset with a OBD2 Diagnostic tool. You can run by your local Advance Auto/Autozone and they will do that for you usually free of charge.
Hope this helps

My service engine soon light came on my fluids are up to par , my engine is shaking when it is on, the engine did not do this before the service soon light came on


misfire likely, but please have the car scanned for trouble codes and report them back to us. Many parts stores, such as autozone and advance will perform a free scan for you.

97 Expedition, 5.4L hesitated during acceleration 40-45MPH. Check Engine light flashed, then stayed on. Would get up to 55-60MPH. All guages read ok. First trouble ever with this car.


go to a parts store and they will let you use their scanner for free. sounds like a cylinder misfiring. The scanner will tell you which one it is.

You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.

I may not have the answer but I had a similar problem with my 97 taurus, for me the problem was the Oxygen sensors they needed to be replaced. If you havent done that maybe try it or ask a mechanic if that might be the problem

97 ford taurus: Cylinder 2 misfire


Assuming the plugs and wires have been changed. I would look at the bottom of the coil pack. They tend to crack and short out.

Or if it's got coil packs they will also crack and short out.
