This problem does not make much sense as #3 and 6 both get the same signal to fire the 3.4 liter fires both times the piston hits tdc both on the compression and exhaust stroke. Did you put a new coil in or a used one try to swap the coil with one of the other two and see if the problem follows the coil. If it does not follow the coil maybe you have a bad plug wire or plug

I had the same problem with my 94 3.4 Camaro. Turned out to be a worn lobe on the cam shaft. Some of the things you might want to try are doing a compression test on it. Mine all hold at 120-130 psi. Next thing is throw a new set of wires on. That doesn't work check the injector, buy a new one if you need to. If that is all good then check your cam shaft.

Check the wire going to that coil pack and see if it is working ok.You stated you already replaced that coil pack? Then me I would again check that wire as mentioned.

Do you know whether or not you have an aluminum block? Also, is that # 6 a firing order for your spark plugs/boots? If you have an aluminum block, the block has to be 100 % cool. Don't even start it before changing a spark plug. It is very easy to misthread when replacing causing shavings to get inside and then you basically have the problem all over again. You also need to put dileletic grease as well as anti-seize on the plug or boot. Any time you change plugs/boots on an aluminum block, be sure that you keep the hole covered as not to get any foriegn object inside. Also, make sure that the gap is correct even though it is supposed to be when you purchase it. It is usually a good idea to change all your plugs at the same time instead of just one if you are trying to trouble shoot, to save $$ like the rest of us. Good Luck, I hope this helps. Let me know, OK?

Check distributer cap, rotor, and specially near wire number 6. remove the cap and visually inspect looking for signs of burns or small craks. check the top of the cap to see if the coil wire has signs of contact. On the rotor, check the metal piece for any signs of burning. Hopefully this will help. Did you check the gap on sparkplug six ?

Keep getting P0308 code misfire


A misfire code is set because one of three things is missing or not right: spark, gas, or compression. You checked compression and it's good, equal to the other cylinders? And there is spark on #8? That leaves a fuel problem, then. How does the spark plug look on #8- if the appearance is white, almost a blistered look to the bottom of the plug, that is an indication of lean running- not enough gas in the mixture at that cylinder. You may have an injector problem on #8.

Check engine light is on, they say multiple miss fire in cylcinder 6. but no one can find the problem van runs great


first do a cylinder compression test on engine to verify good engine compression this should be around 110psi to 175 psi check for vacuum leak, intake port for #6 cylindermay be leaking air, or also check coil for that cylinder, if wire and spark plug have already been changed, last replace fuel injector for that cylinder.

Ok i recently changed spark plugs on my 1994 buick skylark. when i was done changing plugs i started car up and smelled strong exhaust smell. so i checked the plugs wires and found out that when i pulled...


Did you mean coil the 1994 3.1 did not use a distributor , sounds like a bad coil pack and cylinders #3 and #6 do use the same coil. I would also check 3 and 6 plug wires this system is a waste spark design meaning when # 3 coil fires it is supposed to go through #3 plug wire , through #3 plug ( ground) through the engine block through the #6 plug then through the #6 wire then back to the coil, Then when #6 fires it works the opposite way, so in theory you could have one bad wire affecting 2 cylinders .....

I have a ford explorer 99 but it's giving a error code PO306 what do u think it is


It sounds like a misfire. Check spark plugs 5 and 6. It could be bad fuel, bad plug wire, or weak coil. Check the fuel injectors as well. Other possible causes could be an egr valve stuck open, vacuum leaks, low fuel pressure.

I have a miss fire


Recheck the firing order; 1-6-5-4-3-2

On the distributor passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6-coil
On the distributor drivers side radiator to fire wall. 3-1-5

Cylinder passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6
Cylinder drivers side radiator to fire wall. 1-3-5

Good luck and also check the distributor cap again for proper seating.

How to check and fix a cylinder #1 firing problem. Cylinder, plug, or wiring?


You can test each spark plug, but disconnecting the wire as the engine is running. If it runs rougher, then that plug was good. If there's no change, then that plug may be bad. If it runs rougher, it could also mean the wire is bad.


To test the ignition coil (you may have one coil for each spark plug, or one for every two plugs, this part I am unsure of with your model) remove the wire from the plug and then remove the spark plug, then put the plug into the wire (DO THIS WITH THE CAR OFF). Start the car and while using INSULATED PLIERS touch the plug tip to a good ground spot such as the frame even the engine itself, but not to the battery. If there's a spark or crackling sound, then that coil is good.

You can test each wire by hooking it up to a voltmeter and setting the resistance to 20,000 OHM.
The reading will vary based on the length of wire. 12inch wire may register 6-7 while a 30inch wire may register 8-9. If it registers below 6 regardless of length, then the wire should be replaced.
