Open Question

Where is cylinder #3 located on a 2003 Mazda Tribute with V6 Engi

Had an engine light fault indicating a misfire on cylinder #3, chaged the spark plugs and boots, but the engine is still running rough and the check engine light is still on. I think an ignition coil may be bad, any ideas?

I hope this helps. If you have a misfire, cylinders 1, 2, and 3 are on the back of the engine and 4, 5, 6 are on the front of the engine. Replacing the coil usually fixes the problem. Sometimes it does not and usually then you will find a bad terminal at the PCM connector, but its pretty rare.

Vehicle is hesitating, like it is going to cut off.


There are a few things that can cause an engine misfire and hesitation. Does your van have a CoP ignition system? (Separate ignition coils for each spark plug) Or coil pack? You may have bad ignition coil(s); that would cause a misfire. If you have a dirty/clogged/leaky fuel injector for cylinder 3, that could also cause a misfire condition. When you replaced all the spark plugs, did you look at the plug from cylinder 3? Did they all look the same? Sometimes you can get clues to what is going on in your cylinder by how the spark plug looks: if it's white or glazed you are running too lean and could indicate fuel injection problem, if it's got burnt oil on it and it's sludgy you may have a leaky gasket or worn piston ring that is letting oil up into the combustion chamber and fouling the plug, causing a misfire. If your check engine light comes back on and it's the same misfire code, have the coil for cylinder 3 checked to see if it's weak or bad. Or you can do a home remedy check and swap a known good ignition coil from another cylinder to 3, reset the code, and see if the misfire moves to another cylinder. If it does, you know the coil is bad. You can pick up an ignition coil for pretty cheap on the internet ($30-$70) if that's the problem and they're simple to install (a pain if they're on a cylinder that's under the intake manifold, but just because you have to unbolt a bunch of stuff to get to it...time consuming but not too difficult). I have a 2001 Mazda Tribute and had a couple of ignition coils go bad, causing misfires. This seems to be a semi-common problem for early 2000's Mazdas.

You could have a bad coil in the back cylinders. Oil in the plug holes will short out a COP (coil on plug) in these engines, is is a known issue in these (Ford) engines. Do the same routine for the back cylinders, and you should also plan on replacing your valve gaskets/plug seals.
