Would think you may have replaced the wires on
the wrong plug

Have to mark both ends of wires with a ball point,
as you remove them & make a drawing of distributor
cap, before your start

You should have all your reference material weeks in advance
of any auto work or repairs,can't guess or ask later

SOURCE: new plugs an wires,coilpak what else could

This is the only possible ideas I can thing of :

Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect Fuel Pressure
EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition module or related wiring issues
Ignition related sensor faults or wiring issues

I know you did these two things:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiring

I have a misfire # 4 cylinder on a 97 Nisson Altima 2.4. Did complete tune up, has spark, good compression, swap #1 and #4 injector, problem stayed at #4, p0304. I read that intake could cause this but...


Did you check the coil pack to that cylinder? The best way I know how to check an individual cylinder getting fire is by using a induction timing light tester..start the engine then clamp the tester over the plug wire and point at a surface that will clearly show the flash of the light when the wire has power going to the plug..if you see an intermittent flash it is the coilpak...give it a try..a good luck..

P0303 cylinder 3 misfire


If # 3 cylinder has spark at the plug it must fire if the following conditions apply. Injector is supplying fuel to the cylinder. and cylinder compression tests OK . So check above ,one or both must be at fault.

It has a misfire ,we changed the plugs and the coil pack and wires still has a misfire what else could it be


Gas or compression. Check the injector circuit on 1 and 3. Are they pulsing, to put gas in the cylinders? Do a compression test to rule out loss of compression as cause for the misfire.
Kind of odd it would be 1 and 3, but that is one right after the other in the firing order of 1-3-4-2...so, you have a single coil? So you have a distributor-examine closely the distributor cap and rotor if those were not changed too, with the plugs and wires. Look for damage, little black tracks that indicate shorting of the spark, maybe damage at the electrode tips on the inside of cap on 1 and 3 plug wire towers. Most people change the cap and rotor when doing the plugs and plug wires.
Just a possibility also, that the injector ground wires for 1 and 3 might share the same ground. That is to say, they might splice together before going to the computer where the computer internally grounds injector circuits to cause pulsing. Well, those are my thoughts, good luck. And let me know what you find, always interested.

1995 grand marquis cylinder 4 says misfiring changed plugs whires and coilbox lifters and rockers any ideals


Then if the wire did not spark or knock you down it must not be getting spark. You could have a bad coilpak. If it sparks, then look at fuel side, like a bad fuel injector on #4.

There is a test system called Noid lights which plug into the wire harness on the injector. This will show if juice is going in, but a Voltmeter can also be used to verify power to the injector. The loaner programs at big autoparts chains may have Noid lights to lend.

Now if you know the power is reaching the fuel injector, you probably have a bad injector. Disconnect the wire harness to the injector and use an Ohmmeter to test the coil inside the injector. If it is bad it will not show Ohms.
