Problems such as this (missing) on gasoline engines is due to water seeping into the rubber boot/protector/cover of the sparkplugs. Corrective measures would require that said rubber boots be removed (one at a time) and compressed air sprayed to clear out the moisture/water. Additionally, the same could be done to the distributor cap, all the high tensions wires (and the ignition coil if exposed and not internal).

Cutting out would be more of a air/fuel contamination problem, water might have gotten in to the air filter and is being sucked into the engine combustion chamber. In this case, it would be necessary to remove the air filter to clean and ensure that no water is inside the air filter basin.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: how do you clear check engine light on 94 jaguar

First off, you might need to actually have your engine checked. However, if you know that the engine is in good shape and you're still seeing that pesky check engine light in your Jaguar XJ6, here's a cool trick for how to turn it off.

  • Remove the passenger's side dash liner.

  • Look for the round red connector with a single pink/red wire that is hanging free.

  • Turn on the ignition but do not start the car and then press the VCM button.

  • When the code displays, use a jumper wire to short the pink/red wire to ground for 3 seconds.

  • Turn the key off for 10 seconds and then turn it back on and check for any more stored codes.

  • If there are more use the same procedure to clear them.

How do u reset timing of distributor after replaceing it. on a ford e350 94'

You will need a timing light....Start the engine and allow it to warm to normal operating temperature....disconnect the vacuum adavance--then slowly rotate the distrubtor while using the timing light to set it.
The timing mark for top dead center will be on the harmonic balancer, the pointer will be attached to timing chain cover, Set the timing as follows per engine size.
5.0L- BTDC 10° ± 2°
5.8L- BTDC 10° ± 2°
7.5L- BTDC 10° ± 2°

Turn off the engine and tighten the distributor bolt. Recheck the timing to verify that the timing did not move while tightening the distributor. Replace the shorting bar or vacuum line.

I hope this helps,

There are a number of drive cycles that the car needs to go though before the ECU will set itself up correctly. This should happen over time but sometimes it's worth following the drive cycle requirements to speed things along. Check out for details on engine drive cycles/

Replacing timing chain in 94 throttle body 2 wheel drive 4.3

I would check to make sure its the timing chain they normaly don't go first on that engine. The crank shaft pisition sensor or the disturbtor shaft can look like the timing is the problem.But if you have broken a tooth on the gear or something you need to remove the radaitor the water pump the timing cover you can unbolt the upper gear the lower one you have to pull. Set the engine up so # 4 cylinder is at the top of the compression stork. install the gears so the mark is down on the upper gear and up on the lower gear and they line up in the middle # 4 is the front right hand side when faceing the engine from the front and the vehicle be on correctly timed.
