Check the plug and plug wire to #3, if they are ok test the fuel injector and test the compression on that cylinder.

Dead miss on one cylinder 99 sl2


A quick way to check the single coil pack if you know for sure which cylinder is miss firing and its setting a code you can swap the coil pack to another cylinder and see if the miss changes from one cylinder to another. If it travels to where you moved the coil then the coil is bad,if not you have other problems.

When excelerating my car starts to **** until I get to a steady speed then it runs just fine. I've already replaced the filters but the garage still can't find anything wrong. Thanks for your help.


Is the check engine or service engine soon light illuminated? If so, what trouble codes were found.
Per your description it sounds as though you may have an engine missfire condition in from the ignition system.
Is this a 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder engine.
Good luck

My check engine light blinks for my mercury cougar at idle at every stop light, stop sign, everything as soon as i stop or put it in park it starts blinking whats wrong?


Usually when your check engine like is blinking it means you have a miss fire. You can go to Auto Zone and have them pull the codes and it will tell you what cylinder is misfiring. ( if you want to only fix that one miss).

Car is producing a lot of smoke from exhaust when engine on and stuttering when driving - have been told it is one of the coils that has failed but the smoke is worryijng


If a coil failed, that would explain the stuttering when driving, but the smoke is due to a leak inside the engine, either antifreeze getting into the cylinders or the oil is passing the rings or oil is leaking into a cylinder from a valve.

If there is a Service Engine Soon light there are likely codes that are stored. So, have it scanned to give you a clue as to which cylinder is missing.

Check engine light comes on code po303. Sounds like engine is missing when listening at the tailpipe


Miss on cylinder #3 could be caused by fuel injector or coilpack not firing on that cylinder.

97 k1500 5.7 liter vortec misses on cylinders 3 and 5 while idling. about 1500 rpm only cylinder 3 and 4 miss then at 2000 rpm only cylinder 4 and 8 miss. what could cause this?


I have had continuous missing issues on my 1997 Silverado after i had a new engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Today I purchased a new gasket for the EGR Valve and removed it. The mechanic had re-used the old gasket when he replaced the engine and cut corners to save $2.00. I found he had installed the EGR bass-ackwards causing my check engine light to stay on and the engine always to miss. Engine runs GREAT now
