2001 Toyota Celica GT missing and smoking really bad. Smoke is white and smells like raw gas. Fuel mileage very poor. The red 5 amp fuse that fits in the panel at location 5, 6, 7, 8, keeps blowing also,...

Just a hunch, but you may want to get a mechanic to see if any valves are leaking, if any gaskets need replacing, if any of the plugs are bad and need replacing (this will cause an engine to miss sometimes), if you've blown a head gasket, or even if the head is cracked. Lots of times, vehicles with cracked engine heads will miss or run erratically. Also, they will leak oil which can be burning off of other components of the engine such as the manifold. Hopefully not, though! As far as the the fuse goes, there might be something grounded that's causing the fuse to blow constantly, or there could be a short in the wiring somewhere. Maybe you can get someone you know to check that out. Hope this helps!

On my 95 blazer I have an interrmedite miss that moved from the #3 chilinder to the #5 vacuum and compression testa are good I have replaced the fuel injectors still unable to locate cause of misfire.

I'm guessing that your "Check Engine" or Service Engine Soon" light came on, which means that a code was set in your ECM (onboard computer). Is that how you determined that the miss was on #3 and moved to #5? What was the code and were there any other codes set at the same time? If so, what were they? Also what size engine do you have, and is it a throttle-body or multi-port injection system? Need more info, please.

Sounds like you have a bad ign. module. When the engine is cold moisture causes the miss and when the engine warms the module shorts out all together.

P0305 cylinder misfire in 96 chevy z71 k1500 5.7 vortec

i would not spend the money on heads w/out diagnosing # 5 misfire. misfire is caused by many different things. i would first start by verifying in fact #5 is at fault. start engine, with it running and using well insulated plyers, pull each wire off dist. cap one at a time. you will notice the engine missing worse each one you pull until you reach the one causing the miss. this wire, when pulled, will not change the evident missing cylinder. if it is #5, check spark, at spark plug end. stick a small screwdriver or equivilent in the removed boot, and place it a cm away from a ground source. start engine. observe spark. should be nice and blue, and ark a good inch from ground. if no spark, swap a wire and check again. if still no spark replace cap and rotor. if their is spark, make check plug. even though new, its easy to crack porcilan installing it. try another plug. if still a miss, start engine with plug removed, breifly, and compression should be evident. strong popping noise of compressed air. a compression gauge is the proper test ( 4 strokes 125 psi) but if audible compression is heard without a doubt, more than likely fine. w spark and compression seeming ok, next is possible fuel, (injector) or intake leak, leaning ouy cylinder. try this and let me know.

When there is an engine misfire it could be gas or spark related. Or, the oxygen sensor may not be operating correctly, which controls fuel supply.

If there is a 'random misfire' then it could be an oxygen sensor causing the problem, as well, causing a rich mixture.

Good luck on this repair.

97 k1500 5.7 liter vortec misses on cylinders 3 and 5 while idling. about 1500 rpm only cylinder 3 and 4 miss then at 2000 rpm only cylinder 4 and 8 miss. what could cause this?

I have had continuous missing issues on my 1997 Silverado after i had a new engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Today I purchased a new gasket for the EGR Valve and removed it. The mechanic had re-used the old gasket when he replaced the engine and cut corners to save $2.00. I found he had installed the EGR bass-ackwards causing my check engine light to stay on and the engine always to miss. Engine runs GREAT now
