My 5 and 6 cylender are not firing on my 1997 f150

There can be several reasons. A lot of times people look at the spark side of the problem and forget that fuel injectors also must work. The firing signal comes from the crankshaft sensor, then both the spark and fuel get a signal to fire.

When 2 adjacent cylinders miss, it can be a head gasket or the coil pack. I see that this problem is 7 months old so you have probably fixed it.

1989 ford f150 missing

Well it could be an injector, or a valve. But he should have fixed a sticking valve when the head was off.
A basic compression test would show if it is a sticking valve.

Have a miss fire on 6 @ 8, have put another head on it cause the other head had a crack in it and still has a miss.

If the injector is pulsing on the cylinders,and the ignition is sparking the spark plug in the cylinder,then it would have to be a valve problem,or the head is leaking in between the cylinders

P0300 engine code

Random cylinder misfire, you will need an OBDII Scanner with MODE 6 to see what the miss count is to help find the offending cylinder.

You may get lucky and get a P0301 though P0304 code to tell you which cyling but then you may not...

Then after you find the offending cylinder you will have to figure out why its running bad... Plug, coil, injector, compression or vavle problem.

  1. Well it can happen to the best of us check your firing order again it's actualy pretty simple.
1 3 5
2 4 6 This is how the firing order is 1 3 5 being in the back of the engine towards the fire wall and 2 4 6 in the front. Just place the wires on the corresponding numbers.
