Question about 1992 Buick Regal

1 Answer

Won't start w/6 cyls, will start w/5 cyls

Has spark and fuel, but will not start with all spark plugs in. Remove one plug (any one) and it will start and run.
Haven't tried with plug loose in head (no compression condition).

Sounds like a weak battery, or a bad starter. Can you put the plug back into the motor, once the motor is running??????

Does this car have spark plugs? Where are they?


What car? 4 cyl? 6 cyl? 8 cyl? 10 cyl? What year?
If it is a diesel, it has no spark plugs.
Most other BMWs have coil-over spark plugs. You remove the plastic cover on top of the engine and then unbolt and pull out the coils. The plugs are beneath the coils.

1996 explorer 6 cyl getting a p0305 code


cylinder no. 5 misfire detected. Check the spark plug, the spark plug wire, the fuel injector, The fuel injector o-ring (if the o-ring is bad, no compression). You can swap the spark plug or wire with a good cylinder and if the problem moves over then you've found your problem. Same rule with the injector.

The 4.9L straight 6 is 1-5-3-6-2-4----------- distributor rotor turning clockwise, and #1 plug is the first plug.
On the 3.0 and 4.2 V6 engines is 1-4-2-5-3-6-------#1 plug is the first plug on driver side---- facing engine.

1991 XJ6 cylinders 5/6 not firing


Check for spark at the cylinders you mention. Unplug the wires from the spark plugs, put a spark plug in the end of the wires, and attach the body of the plugs to earth, or an exposed metal part of the engine. With the engine running, you should have spark at the plugs. If no spark, get the ignition system tested. If there is spark present, and you think the fuel is ok, then the compression must be at fault. The things that are required for combustion are: spark, fuel, and compression. Get a compression test done on the engine, but first check for any vacuum leaks in the inlet manifold around the cyl 5 and 6 area.
