The injector is a good possibility, although you should check for spark in the wire first, as the electrical is the weakest link in the system. Put a spare plug in the end of the wire with the plug resting on metal, then have someone crank the van to see if you have spark that far, test and replace spark plug, (do not get shocked!) then look into a new injector or a good cleaning.

Either there is a bad wire, or the computer is bad. Its time to have a qualified repair shop check it out.

I have a 98 4runner with 300000 miles. It's been running excellent but day before yesterday it started sputtering like a tractor when driving and idoling. Service engine light blinks when in overdrive, and...


First check the plugs. Pull the #6 plug and look at the electrode. If it's wet and/or dark (black) it's probably not firing correctly. What is the spark plug gap? Is the center electrode eroded (not flat on the end)? Swap in another plug and see if it makes any difference. How old are the plugs?

Second, check the wires. Did you replace the wire(s) when you changed the coil pack? They should be replaced periodically (I replace the wires on my '96 4Runner at about 100k miles). Check the wires with an ohmeter. Resistance should be around 16-17.5k ohms (depends on length).

FYI, each coil pack on your vehicle fires two spark plugs. The #6 spark plug is fired by the #3 cylinder coil pack, so if the coil pack were bad, most likely both the #3 and the #6 plugs would not fire.

With the engine running and the cylinder misfiring tap (key word is tap) the injector with a screwdriver a couple of times. If the misfire goes away replace the injector.

What does it mean when cylinder 3 and 6 are miss firing


MISFIRING MEANS PLUGS NOT FIRING WHEN IT SUPPOSE TO.IF SPARK PLUGS HAVE OVER 100000 MILES ON THEM TIME FOR NEW PLUGS AND WIRES.IF ALL IS GOOD. A BAD COIL OR DIRTY FUEL INJECTORS TO BOTH CYLINDERS WILL CAUSE MISFIRE.

I have a ford explorer 99 but it's giving a error code PO306 what do u think it is


It sounds like a misfire. Check spark plugs 5 and 6. It could be bad fuel, bad plug wire, or weak coil. Check the fuel injectors as well. Other possible causes could be an egr valve stuck open, vacuum leaks, low fuel pressure.
