Check for a shorted spark plug ie. touching central and side electrodes.

You can buy a coil tested from advanced auto for 10 dollars to identify the spark. Have you checked compression?

F250 03 misfire diagnosis


The engine Family you have is know for having coils go bad. If you can get the truck scanned to see which cylinders are misfiring. If not, First I would remove all coils and spark plugs and Inspect. If you have found bad Spark plugs Replace with a high Quality plug. Double Platinum at a Minimum. I would not use Champion plugs. I have never had good luck with them in Fords. Look closely at the coil to spark plug boot. if you see any signs of arcing , White looking or burn marks that is a sign that you have boots letting Ignition spark arc to ground before reaching the spark plug. You can get replacement boots Aprox 4.00 each or there is a complete set. Look closely at the coil pack for any signs of cracking, arching, white residue, burning. that would be a sign of a bad coil pack.

CEL light flashing-shuddering when idle. 03 passat 1.8 Turbo. Thinking its an air leak somewhere? Can hear air but can't figure out where its coming from...


A flashing cel indicates misfiring. A common problem is a bad ignition coil. The easiest route for diagnosis is the check the trouble codes(autozone and some other parts stores will scan for free, or an OBDII code reader is not too expensive to buy). The code should tell you which cylinder is misfiring(PO301 means cyl #1, 302 cyl #2, etc). Once you know which it is, swap the ignition coils around. If you have a #1 misfire, swap coils 1 and 4, clear the codes, then check it again. If the misfire moves, you know you've got a bad coil. If the misfire is air or fuel related, as with an intake leak, other codes should come up as well as the misfire.

Fule pump and filter have been changed teres are good and spark plugs are good to why does it buck and sometimes shut off


I had the same issue on my 03 Expedition. Jerks randomly but gets worst and extreme misfires/stalls/shuts down. Then restart and its fine. These bucks more likely are random misfires (Chk engine light may/not come on) associated with the ignition coil/s failing. These coils have a average life expectancy of 79,000 miles or 5yrs. I replaced all 8 COPs (coil over plug) @ 48,000 miles just to be safe with new accel coils. The coil models for engines 4.6/5.4 V8s are DG508. Hopefully this helps!

2006 dodge caravan, 6 cyl. relaced cole, sparkepugs and wires in oct. 2009. Engine is reading #2 cyl. misfire again. Why


Firts time swap spark plug & ignition coil between two different cylinders and read again if the same #2 cyl. misfires !
If #2 cyl. is OK and another cyl. misfires then spark plug or ignition coil is out of order and must be replaced.
If #2 cyl. misfires again then #2 injector must be checked !
If ignition coils & spark plugs (complete set for 6 cyl.) are replaced then you must check #2 injector !

Random Cylinder Misfire


The cam sensor code is the part to concentrate on, also check the timing belt for excess play causing the camshaft to whip, this will cause a random miss.
