Have you done any troubleshooting here ?
Is the plug getting spark from the coil ?
Is the injector getting fuel, voltage, and a ground pulse ?
Does the cylinder have normal compression ?

Cyl #1 misfire chk engine light

Two additional possibilities:
  • Fuel contamination (worth siphoning and replacing ALL of the fuel to eliminate the possibility, especially if you have been using ethanol blend fuel);
  • Bad spark plug wire (despite proper static resistance). Just replace ALL of the spark plug wires.

Not firing on number 4 cylinder

Hi,you probably have a compression or injector issue.If it will reach swap the injector wire(2 pin clip)to the next cylinder and see if it starts to miss or even swap the whole injector with one of the front ones to see if the miss follows the injector.If no4 continues to miss grab a compession guage and do a test.It should have a minimum of 140psi at cranking speed.A burnt valve is often the culprit,the clue is popping at the exhaust at idle is an exhaust valve,puffing or chuffing in the intake is an intake valve.This is a head off job,and you should do a full valve service guides etc while off.Also on re assembly check all vacuum pipes and fittings as leaks kill valves.Also if it has just started doing this it may be a vacuum leak near no4.Sometimes the brake booster or hose,it needs to be fixed soon as valves are burnt quickly

I have a 2000 lincoln ls 3.9 it has a misfire cly 4. I change spark plugs, coils, injector. and the intake seal. It still misfire cly 4. I also check compression it all same i all cly read 120 psi. it also...

Check the fuel injector..some time they give the same code like misfire..if it is good, than go ahead and check the wiring harness if there is a signal coming from it..if no signal..then follow the wire back to the source to see if there a short or open...good luck

I have a 1998 ford ranger 4 cyl it misses on #4 cyl I have changed plugs and wires also changed injectors around ( #4and #1 ) still misses on #4 this problem happend sudenly one day it was...

Have a compression test done ,and look for a vacuum leak near the cylinder,like a vacuum hose or intake gasket.If the compression test shows a fluctuation between the 3 and 4 cylinder,then the head gasket would need to be replaced.

Number 4 cylinder misfiring. i already did a tune

most likely cause spark plug wire bad, or you got them incorect when you did a tune up if it happened before tune up. swap the wires but keep the fire order the same . if the wires are good then the # 4 should still be the problem . put them back the way they were now you have ruled out the wires next check the fuel injetion system check for a vacum leak around the # 4 injector listen with a lenght of hose . listen to the injectors they should all be making a clicking noise.cant help you more then that. make and model would help the next expert wiz or guru

My 8 cly code came up. I changed the plu and now it says cly 7 is bad

While engine running, disconnect cylinder 7 injector, if rpm drop injector ok, now check spark at coil, unscrew 8mm bolt form coil pack, lift up on it a little from spark plug, if you hear spark, coil pack good, replace coil pack boot.That works like a spark plug wire.

Missing, loping...changed plugs and wires, distributer cap, checked compression......could it be an injector???

yes. nissan is famous for injectors, check the wiring to injectors,you said you had compression spark and you tuned it, the next step would be injector.

N 12 pulsar missing badley gradually got worse i

A low battery can result in low spark and running bad.
Charge up the battery and try again.

See if one cylinder worse then others, by removing wire, one at a time, with an insulator.
Switch the wire, plug, and injector from bad cylinder with good one.
If still the same, check compression.
If not, replace wire, plugl, or injector that is bad.

You could still have systemic problem like intake manifold leak.
Try listening for hissing by using a lenght of hose to hear through.

1997 Aerostar 4 liter engine has miss on several cylinders. New wires and plugs. Miss is intermintent. Usually worse under load. At times van runs fine.

check for vacume leaks on intake and other vacume hoses. random misfire is also usually a clogged fuel filter or pressure regulator. could also be a cam or knock sensor. are their any trouble codes.
