Have the cylinders compression checked. if compression is low(-25% or more) you may have bad rings, leaking valves, or (worst case) blown pistons.

Hi Brad,
I ran into the same problem your going thru,
swapped cylinder plug and wire ,and the scan kep telling me it was still seeing the problem on the same cylinder,
smoked it too,nothing made sense!
Until i took the whole fuel rail off carefully not to let the fuel run out all over the engine,Had a white rag folded up and handy,tilted the rail assembly and left the fuel run on the cloth,OMG! the rust that came out of there,
I pulled every injector out of the rail,cleaned the inside of the rail with air pressure and carb cleaner.
Its when I was checking the injectors that I found the culprit,the rust pieces had made it thru the injector but were trapped in the screen of the injector!
I hope this cures your.

A misfire doesn't always have to be ignition... it's just the most common cause. Faulty or plugged injector, low compression. You need to check fuel pressure and test the fuel injector flow. Then check compression. If you don't have tools for these tests, take it to someone who does. Testing is much cheaper than throwing parts at the problem.

2002 ford escape misfiring changed all plugs gaskets boots


I would have it scanned and check what cylinders are still misfiring. I would change the ignition coil for that cylinder and see if that fixes the
problem. If the misfire is still there...the PCM will likely need replacement.

2004 Jetta 1.8T started idling rough at low rpm, OBD says random misfire....


spark plugs? either current ones are bad, or maybe you replaced recently with incorrect ones (most autoparts stores don't have the right plugs for 1.8T...need to go to dealer or ecstuning.com)
-or-
coil packs?
the OBD scan should tell you what cylinder is misfiring. try swapping the coil packs around and see if the misfire moves. if it does, then replace the bad coil pack (might just want to do all 4). if not, trying swapping the plugs around...same idea.

You still need to replace the plugs and wires regardless of the visual appearance. If it persists then a compression test and fuel injector swap is needed. If it persists then more expensive parts and tests are needed to see if it s internal engine issue or lean running issue or clogged EGR port.

Engine has a very bad miss in it


The ignition coil pack (the black thing all the plug wires hook to) is probably cracked. Remove it and look for cracks on the bottom and sides. If it is cracked replace it.

Engine missing, particularly in idle, or dies when turning


The intake gaskets leaking would cause the engine to have a misfire. Get a can of Brake Clean and spray in around the intake manifold on the top of the engine while the engine is running. The engine idle will go up or down if there is a leak. Also try swapping the spark plug with another spark plug to see if the misfire moves to another cylinder. If it moves then you have a bad spark plug. I hope this helps.

2001 Honda Odyssey 3000cc engine gave me the "shakes". Turns out one of the Ignition Coils failed rendering the spark plug useless. Change with part number 30520-p8e-a01and now runs normally.
