SOURCE: my car is misfiring in 4 cilinders and it lost power some times

Check the ignition timing. Check the cables for leaking voltage through cracks in the insulation, or check for very high resistance. Check the distributor for cracks.

Hello, i can seem to get rid off a missfire in my ford explorer 4x4 4.6 v8 from 2002. i changed the plugs and it ran great for about ten minutes, then it started miss firering again. it is even worse on...

If your coils/wires are on the correct cylinders then, with the truck running unplug your alternator if the truck runs smooth then you have a short inside the alternator causing change in electrical current, if this is case replace alternator.

I have a misfire problem on my rodeo 3 cilinders are misfireing 3.2L

Clean the egr valve and egr exhaust pipe.

Intake manifold gasket ( I think its called the Intake main gasket on this car) usually culprit apparently on this paticular vehicle.

Do you get the code p0300 code.?

The PCM seems to be very sensitive to misfires.

Clean your spark plugs also..

Densos are the preferred choice but I prefer Autolite Extreme Performance Iridium plugs.

I have a 1999 mercury villager that has a slight misfire P303

First clean the MAF sensor with carb cleaner several times with spray.

Then spray short bursts around intake manifold connections to see if idle flares up. That is where leak is.

1999 jeep cherokee 6 cylinder engine light

2. Vacuum leak
3. Injector fault
4. High or low fuel pressure.
Thats the list of things to check.
This is a #3 cylinder misfire.
There is also TSB about #3 injector needing added heat protection. This could definitely be the cause. I start at plugs and go from there.
Hope this helps.
Thank you,
