Question about 1997 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Ford taurus sho misfire cylinder1

The cylinder still misfires after I swaped the ignition coil from #2 to #1 and the cylinder still misfires showing in cylinder#1 so the problem is not in the coil so I cant seem to find the solution and Ive been trying for months. I also put lucus injecter cleaner along with dry gas and just to see if the injecters were clogged and the car still misfires granted the injectors are brand new.

I may not have the answer but I had a similar problem with my 97 taurus, for me the problem was the Oxygen sensors they needed to be replaced. If you havent done that maybe try it or ask a mechanic if that might be the problem

Ford taurus p0300


Neither was the problem on a 2007 vehicle,still sort of new

You do need to change plugs every 3 years

I would change the Front Oxygen Sensors, if you have 100,000
miles on them---still not the misfire issue

The misfire is the ignition control module, if that is what you have,
since you mentioned plug wires,some motors have individual
ignition coils & they fail a lot on a ford

Those codes are of no use, their random misfires & misfire
on first 1,000 rpm when starting the motor

Have to diagnose each cylinder & any module issue

Whom ever did your work failed to do anything but replace
parts,no road test,no scanner data checking or code diagnoses

Don't go to the chain store or auto parts shops
Go to an old time local shop

1999 ford taurus- yellow engine warning light keeps showing cylinder 1 misfire. I have: 1. Changed out plugs and wires, 2. switched wires around, 3. replaced fuel injector, 4. replaced coil. Still...


Yes.
You could have a leaking head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head.
After driving the car for a few days the spark plug should show signs of coolant on the tip.
You may want to do a compression test to see if that cylinder is low on compression too.

Vsc & check engine light on. Code reads cylinder 2 misfire I have changed the plugs swaped coil with another cylinder swaped vsv's swaped injector plugs with another cylinder always shows misfire #2...


You may need to look at your exhaust system. If you have a leak, your O2 sensors will send the wrong reading to your engine which will in turn tell your engine to fire differently. Your code will come up reading as a misfired bank. See if you have an exhaust leak first, then see about changing out the O2 sensors behind the leak.

Cylinder #1 misfire on a Ford Taurus SHO


Did you check the condition of the spark plug? If the plug is good do a compression check; a very low reading could indicate a sticking intake valve (sticking open). The easyest and cheapest way to fix a sticking valve is to introduce 1/2 can of Sea Foam into the air intake manafold; just follow the instructions on the can except you will use 1/2 can instead of 1/3 can. That Yamaha motor from what I have found collects tons of gunk on the valve stems. Good luck.
