At idle the engine misses, off idle very smooth and runs normally computer code multi cylinder misfire. have changed plugs and wires did not help. could it be the coil packs of a fuel problem?


This sounds as if you have a vacuum leak, check all the lines and check the intake. There are a lot of things that will cause mis fire. mis fire code is triggered when the ecm reads a very slight difference in the time the crank sensor picks up a signal. Mis fires can be from electrical, vacuum, mechanical, and eletronic sources. If you can get it to a person/shop that read which cylinder are misfiring this helps alot, narrows the field. Let me know I can help. Also it helps to know what engine we are dealing with

The reason I'm checking the timing belt is that there is mis-fire in 1 & 2 cylinder. If the firing order is 1,2,3,4. I have continues fire out of 1 & 2, when plug wires are pulled out of head. 3...


unplug the fuel injectors, check the olhms on all. the readings should all be the same, around 11-11.5 olhms. Any readings that are higher is a sign of a bad injector which is what your problems sounds like., putting to much fuel to a cylinder causing different fuel amounts to each cylinder and causing it to backfire out of the throttle body , excess fuel . Also remove the throttle body and clean with cleaner and a toothbrush after replacing any injectors. Or there's a simpler answer and that the cambshaft is worn-out/round causing the lifters not to open enough to let in all the fuel. A worn belt would not cause misfires only on select cylinders but rather jump timing, slipping a notch on a gear and possibly bending a valve or valves and this cause a loud clacking or a really a sign to quit running the motor because it's broke! Good luck.

Iam having a miss fire every time i start my car on my 2001 chevy impala how do i set the timing with out taking it to the dealer i changed the plugs and the wiring and the pressure regulator still nothing...


The timing is not settable in a traditional sense of the days of distributors. The spark timing is controlled by the computer. If the computer is getting a bad signal, your spark timing will be off. Generally, a mis-fire isn't caused by bad spark timing. A sticking fuel injector, a bad or improperly seated spark plug wire, or a bad sensor will cause your mis-fires.

Rapid engine mis-fire code


Try changing the ignition control module IF replacing the cranksensor doesn't fix the problem. If the problem still persists check the injectors. They should test at 12V or higher. If they test lower... they need to be replaced. Newer injectors usually sit at around 14V. But start with the crank sensor...sounds stupid and little but it plays a major role in how well the engine runs.
