Engine misfiring

Had same problem with my 2002 Silverado. Took 2 month to find problem. Wires at wiring clip on valve covers that control each coil were taped to tight and the wires are so small they were braking apart.Wiggle the wires and see if the engine smooths out-runs rough-smoothes out-runs rough.Had to cut wires from connectors and wire direct. ran great for a couple of months than started again. jiggled wires and found a couple more acting up.Cut from connector and wire direct runs great again.I only have 2 wires left in original connector. The black ground wire I crimped an eyelet on both ends and grounded them to a bolt.

My Mazda 1997 121 overheats - changed Radiator cap but it still overflows after 5min drive

Sounds like the system is being presurised (possible blown head gasket) Does it run rough when 1st started then clear up? I think you should have a cylinder leakage test done

It cut off a and will not start. I changed the coil,dist. cap, rotor. It is getting fuel

Just on a hunch, it might be the anti theft system. Check out this link and read up on these systems.
