If the piston truely hits the valve then your car definitely need overhauling! rod bearing could have worn out. get it towed to a repair center.

Why is there a miss in cyl. 1 that only occurs at idle speed, which seems low (750 rpm)?


Bad head gasket, burnt/stuck valve, or bad piston rings. Do a compression test. None are worth fixing in a high mileage car. It only creates other problem.

My 99 camry 4cyl, has a rough idle and sounds like a misfiring when accelerating when in gear. Any answers to what it could be?


You could sure be running on 3 pistons. Check spark plugs by removing one HT lead at a time with engine idling. One that's dead will not alter your idle speed when disconected. Replace bad plug and check the same cylinder again. If OK fine. If not check whether you are getting a spark to that plug and rectify. If you have both power and a good spark but still without power the check engine - valves and pistons.

Rough idling and alot of black smoke.i have 4 white spark plugs and 4 black ones. could it be an oxy.sensor?


the ones that are white.. means your burning coolant so that side of the engine has a leaking head gasket.. as for the 4 black ones.. that most likely means your burning oil, and the black smoke indicates burning oil as well.. that could be bad piston rings, valve seals, bad pcv valve... it could be all those things....

Same issue with the rough idle with a warm engine 4.0 Ranger


i would think a plugged fuel injector on # 6 cylinder could be the problem,or a big vacuum leak at that cylinder
a valve burnt/stuck could be but you dont see much of that anymore
could be coolant leaking into cylinder from leaky haed gasket but you would have to add coolant every so often
i would check #6 cyl. spark plug after driveing around a while if it looks new, ie no deposits on it then an injector would be what i would change next

Rough idle,blow by ; blows oil cap into my hand when i unscrew it no water in the oil,checked injectors they seem good could it be head gasket?


Do a compression test to the cylinders, you could have a burnt valve or bad piston ring. Keep me posted, if you can not get a compression test gauge you can always do the oil school method and pull the spark plugs and read the spark plugs condition's. Good luck and be glad to help.
