Reason 3 cylinders misfiring


Could be anything, I'd start by checking plugs wires and coils. Look for wear and burn marks. You can look for arching by letting the car run and use a spray bottle with water spritz water over the coils and wires if it is arching you'll see it.

Red coil wire is arching on my 1984 chevy c10 5.7L


Yes.
The strap is necessary. It is usually not replaced, so it does not come with a new coil.

Assuming none of the wires are crossed, AND you replaced the cap rotor wires with quality replacements (meaning AC Delco) then you may have a bad coil. Remove coil from dist cap if HEI and look for any signs of arcing such as blackened areas.

I have a 1999 vw Golf Wolfsburg Ed. 4cyl. 2.0 It is the old body style. The car runs ok as long as it doesn't rain. When it rains car will start and idle fine but when you hit the gas it spudders no power...


You must have bad ignition wires. The high voltage electricity must be leaking out of the boot(s) and arching from the moist air surrounding the coil pack.
Use a spray bottle filled with tap water. Set the nozzle to mist and not stream, you want to have a misting effect. With the engine running, spray at the area of the spark plugs, wires and coil pack. Do this in a dark area so you can easily see if any arching is produced. Observe while spraying water if the engine starts to run rough. If it does you definitely have an electrical leak and need to repair or replace that part. Some people apply JB Weld epoxy to a cracked ignition coil pack housing, I would just replace the coil because it can cause misfiring of a cylinder and ruin your catalytic converter. For a 2.0 AEG engine it would cost about $70 for the part. If it were the ignition wires, they usually cost the same price.
