    since you spot the no:6 coil different looking in condition,before you replace it,do one last test,remove coil from first cylinder and put it to no:6 and no:6 cylinder coil to cylinder 1 and start the car. If the missfiring goes to one ,surely the coil is blown and you have to replace it.

Have you checked the HT Lead? or if is the coil failure? Also check if there is not any fault on the previous - if the injector on that cylinder is working correct and not pouring the fuel.Since you removed the spark plugs have you checked if No:6 was wet or dry?

    no I haven't on the lead as for it being wet, it was dry. going to check with a compressor on 6 and thank you for you reply. I will check the lead when I get back from going nuts.

    #6 coil looked a little burnt but I'm not sure what to look for. compared to the others I would say it looks different.

I'd guess a bad fuel injector.

SOURCE: code says #1 cylinder misfire. What do I look

check the distributor rotor to see if there is any burn marks on it, and check the point of contact between the contact on the distributor cap, and rotor. It also helps to take a small paint brush, and clean everything with some kerosene. Also, see if there is any oil in the cylinder. if not, the fuel injector is partially/fully clogged.

Check the condition of the plugs you have installed. See if you can find one which has an irregular color. The spark plug should be dry and brown in color. The problem could be just in one or a few cylinders. More than one cylinder may mean a problem with the ignition coil. If it were just one we can isolate it into the components connected to the cylinder.

If you have the SES light on as well, it may be a bad O2 sensor or a bad catalytic converter. Check for the wiring that goes to the O2 sensor. The computer may not be getting the correct reading on how much fuel burned causing the misfire.

If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
I know the elm327 plastic 1.4 can help you reset the code....
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Misfiring code po1399 cylinder 3 and 4


On most Honda's when you get a misfire happening across the whole engine like that there are a few likely issues. the ignition coil if it's a single coil style or the connector at the distributor. They also have some issues with EGR's and plugged ports which can mess with the fuel trim numbers. It's important to check the fuel pressure and if possible a timing offset spec from the scanner whenever you're dealing with misfires on any vehicles Honda or not and determine correct pressure and flow whenever possible.


Hope this helps.

Miss fire but no lights on changed the plugs and fuel filter also changed dist cap also checked for a good spark


A lean fuel mixture will not yield poor fuel economy but a misfiring cylinder will.You have already replaced the coils and the plug leads to the cylinders in question so they should not be an issue.Do the codes still indicate a misfire on cyls. 2 & 3? If so have you looked at the plugs? Has the oil leak around the plugs been stopped? Are they oil fouled? Could the pooling oil around the plugs be shorting the spark discharge to ground?or Valve Cover gasket is leaking. That's why you see some motor oil in the sparkplug sleeve (tube). removed the spark plug and My suggestion is to remove the sparkplug in cylinder 2 & 3 or whichever ones that the scanner indicated as "misfiring". Take a look at the sparkplugs and see if there's any oil around it. If you see any traces of oil, that means your gasket is worned out and need to replace.Good Luck in getting your problem fixed.

Missing,viborating


Misfire could be a number of things:
a) spark plugs - change them if used over 15K miles - inspect/regap.
b) spark plug wires - change them if over 15K miles - inspect
c) ECM (electronic control module) - test with HEI (high energy ignition) tester.

The vibrating tells me that the engine is running on less than its normal compliment of cylinders - the shaking is produced by the imbalance caused in the engine by one (or more) cylinder(s)
not firing at all.

The "Check Engine" light probably is coming on due the the misfire condition. Go to Pep Boys or
Advance Auto Pats, where they'll tell you (free) your codes causing the "Check Engine' light to be
lit - the code coming from your truck's computer will probably be one or more of:
P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder misfire detected
P0301 - Cylinder 1 misfire detected
P0302 - Cylinder 2 misfire detected
P0303 - Cylinder 3 misfire detected
P0304 - Cylinder 4 misfire detected
P0305 - Cylinder 5 misfire detected
P0306 - Cylinder 6 misfire detected
P0307 - Cylinder 7 misfire detected
P0308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected
P0313 - Misfire detected with low fuel

2004 envoy dealer says cylinder misfiring. can i drive it till it dies?


I wouldn't recommend that because you'll cause more damage. Cylinder misfires usually means you have a bad coil. Those darn things are around $80 new, and you have 6 of them if you have the I6 engine. Depending on the mileage, could only be a fouled spark plug. Recommend changing these first to eliminate the cheapest fix.

If the coil and spark plug are not the problem, look for a bad fuel injector. But all in all, you're not looking at a lot of money to fix the first two problems.

The car has 28,000 on it. the motor is a 3.6, and scanner codes keep coming up as injector #6 and misfire on #6 cylinder. i have installed all new injectors, new coil on #6, and all new spark plugs. also...


Check for voltage at the plug, 12volts. Also check with a noid light when it is acting up. Wires tend to break right at the plug. check this to include pulling the wire and the plug. I've had them hanging together with just a strand or two and when it heats up it doesn't make a very good connection.
