    Hi j_del, I have a similar problem. I got it checked at autozone and they said 'Multiple cylider misfire' detected. They also suggested me to get a full tuneup. Do you agree? Do you recommend to take it to the dealer. I have 2005 Audi A4 1.8 T Quattro with 45K miles. I just(2 weeks back) got 45K maintenance at the dealer. Thanks in advance

First thing to do is to go to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts and have them do a code scan on the computer. It'll pull up the failure codes that are stored in your car's computer. Once you have the codes, post them here as a reply and I can define them for you. The stores will give you the proper codes, but I've seen in the past that their code definitions aren't always accurate. Get your codes, post them here, and I'll help you figure out the issue.

I cannot start. Has been acting up and missing somewhat lately but after sitting for 7/8 days it just spins. No attempt to start.


Check Fuel Pressure -- at the schrader valve on engine
fuel rail -- with a gauge 38 to 42 lbs approx

Listen by the fuel tank-- for the pump to come on,have someone
cycle the key on & off

Checking Spark will be a challenge if you have individual coils
Checking the Crank Sensor also an issue checking

Do not throw parts at it

Check for codes if you have a MIL Lamp lite on dash

Acting up lately & possibly missing ,troubles me, because
that is unacceptable with my vehicles. I don't go an hour
& I get a start on those type issues, unless it is raining or
lots of snow coming down

I don't see the no start connected to other issues, unless
you have an ignition module vs: cop coils & it is dead

When you change the crank sensor you need a scan tool to set them.The distributor has to be turned using a scan tool to get the crank sensor dialed in.

I have a '03 Toyota Celica GT-S with a annoying mis-fire. Started small by replacing all spark plugs - nothing. Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked...


Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked compression which check out good and put the computer on. Computer read mis-fire on cylinder 1, and then multiple misfire (like it would jump around). We went ahead and replaced the fuel injector on cylnder 1 - did not solve problem as when we hook the computer up, misfire seemed tp stay at idle and seem better when running high RMP, but check engine light is on as it never went away. Went ahead and replaced the coil pack to cylinder 1 - nothing. what am i missing?

1991 Chevy Caprice has a mild miss fire and stall at low rpm: This is my latest update: I checked and cleaned the EGR,PCV,IAC valve, M.A.P sensor and Throttle body(bore/butterfly). with carb cleaner....


Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.

Engine has miss-fire


First check spark plugs/wires/distributor cap (tune up). Also would be good idea to use fuel injector cleane and change fuel filter and O2 sensor.
Hope that helps
Good Luck
