Truck is not firing on 3 cylinders yet it runs.. Runs really rough, back fires, under powered.. Plugs are Wet, Firing order is correct. New Spark plug cables. Don't know that is wrong! Please Help


Check for spark at the plug ( may have coil problem).
If spark is good then do a compression check. Pressure shouldn't be less than 75% of known good cylinders.

I have a 92 dodge dakota I chanhed sparkpluge distibutor and rotor it still has rough idle hessitates and back fires on take off


With the engine running try spraying a couple shots of carb spray into the throttle body. If the idle smooths out then your running lean. The next step is to check fuel pressure, vacuum leaks, and try unplugging the upstream oxygen sensor. It could be stuck rich which would make the computer drive fuel trims lean.

Backfires and runs rough when letting up on gas.


the pulse timing ring in the distributor have it checked , the metal ring is held in place with platic studs and these studs get worn, then the ring starts to move. Also check the EGR valve
