No, can't see how?
Make sure you lubricate spark plug threads with anti seize paste and don't over tighten.. usually hand tighten till plug bottoms + 1 flat of hex.

Sounds like it's you spark plug leads. Depending which engine you have in there, if you have the 2.4L then it is a module.

It could be a bad fuel injector or just a bad connection. Unplug the injector check it and the plug for corrosion. If there is corrosion clean it and apply some dielectric grease to it and plug it back in and see if that helps. There should be a code coming up on the computer if so what code is it?

1.8L. Why is it misfiring?


There are lots of reason to misfire. The most common one is the spark plugs. Then it could be also the wiring harness, and last but not least, the piston. Troubleshoot the spark plug and the wires by removing them with the engine on, or remove the one that you think is misfiring and then turning the engine on, check the spark plug. Change the spark plug wire to TS the wire. If they looks fine, then it could be the piston.

Misfiring after replacement of spark plugs and wires


If it wasn't misfiring before. Make sure you have the proper gap on the spark plugs. Make sure you have the wires connected in the correct order. If you have the old wires, you may want to end up trying those one at a time to make sure you don't have a defect wire either.
Thank you,

Number 5 piston misfiring


It could be caused by a lot of different things, including a fuel injector, spark plug, spark plug wire, low compression, but in most cases it doesnt get to deep. I would start with checking the spark plug wire to cylinder number 5, then the spark plug. Moisture can cause a misfire so make sure the metal contact points are dry.

Engine light on


They are still looking for a cause because it isnt misfiring right now or because they cant find the cause of the stored misfire codes ?
If it is misfiring right now and they cant figure it out then perhaps you should find new mechanics !
I have seen a lot of bad coils on the PT.
Misfire is usually caused by spark plug wires first, spark plugs 2nd, and coil third.
If it isnt misfiring now, spray down the wires with water. If it misfires after that replace the spark plug wires and spark plugs and try again.
If it still misfires then the problem will likely be the coil.
