SOURCE: 2002 kia sedona 3.5l has rough idle replaced plugs wires and coil

this vehicle has coil packs for the ignition correct? have you ran the engine at night with all surrounding lights outs so its really dark. spray a mist of water on the coil packs and spark plug wires to see if you have spark/voltage leaks jumping out from them. sometimes the tiny sparks will be so fine and skinny you can barely see them so it needs to be dark. hope this helps your trouble shooting. a coil pack could have such a fine crack for the voltage to leak from that you cant see it.

SOURCE: have a 91 dodge ram 3500 van and have no spark.

I had a similar problem and had to change the distributor pick up. Quite easy and parts were less than $30.00. It was for the B250 model, and the 318 engine....but I suspect there is a similar pickup in distributor for the bigger engine

Got a problem with a misfire on 4 put all new plugs & a new oil changed engine light blinking in and our car running rough when I stopped car smelled burning and smoke near back tires

I really couldn't tell you without checking it out. But I would check the coil pack or dist.Cap or ignition control module and change the sparkplug wires.

It's probably the Sparkplug wires or one of the coils, depending what your car has.

Won"t stay running

Look for a loose or bad sparkplug wire. Use gloves and be careful of belts and fan. Move or wiggle the sparkplug wires while someone keeps the van running. If you notice a difference in the way it runs you probably have a bad wire. If it's been more that a couple of years since you changed sparkplugs and wires you should do that anyway. Some gas treatment and oil treatment might help too. You can also borrow a tester from most auto parts stores to hook up to obd2 port and you may get some information on ignition problems or other errors that might help pinpoint the problem. Check and see if the catalytic converter is clogged. You might want to put in a new gas line filter too. Those are just the most common causes of rough running engines.

no heavy oil not going to help misfire. if you have a cylinder misfiring it has to be plug,plug wire,coil ,dist.cap &rotor,vavle,or piston rings ,an sometimes it can be headgasket . what u need to do is a compression check on all cylinders to compare to rest of them & do a leak down test on each cylinder only if the compression test are all the same psi. on all cylinders if u do this you will find the cause of the miss fire .

If the coolant sensor doesn't see coolant, (air) It can tell the computer it is very cold, which will cause the system to add more fuel needed for colder temperatures. This may be your issue, and you can read this with a simple engine data scanner if you can get one.

If the hi-tension wires check out ok you may want to check on the distributor and the contacts at its end and in the inside. You may also want to test the ignition coil.
