Idles rough cylinders 13 and 5 have spark to the plug but it makes no difference when I unplug them

couple of possibilities one is that the spark plugs themselves are grounding the insufficient gap so it's not actually generating a spark other possibility is the spark plug boot or tube is our King instead of the spark plug I had two similar situation on a6 cylinder car one of them the piston ended up touching the spark plug and broke the gap another one was that the spark plug boot the long boot going into the cylinder head itself had a voltage Leak and was arching against the cylinder head good luck

Hello...I have a 2009 chevy cruze 1.8L ,some 3 months ago,the car had some pulsating and vibration during driving , so I changed the spark plugs and the problem was solved, but after about a month,the car...

Was any of the previous spark plugs fouled? Dirty? If so you need to investigate whether the problem is oil or fuel causing the fouling. Also a possibility is that you have a bad plug wire and when you changed plugs you disrupted the plug wire enough to make contact. Now possibly the plug wire is showing too much resistance causing a misfire at idle. Only way to be sure is to have the car scoped to see if the wires are proper or defective. That is unless you are the change parts and try type. In that case try a new set of wires. The reason is because at idle the voltage is not as high as it would be at higher rpm.

Will start but wont stay running after spark plugs been changed

u shud change all the plug wires and the distributer cap-if has one--the surge probly comes from a vacuum leak or throttl area-maybe a tps or idle motor issue---get a repair manual like a haynes in zone or find a good private mechanic hoo can test drive it and du a scan on the computer system

3rd cylinder misfire code 73

Okay, a Honda. I don't see a code 68 for that though. Code 9 is number 1 cylinder position sensor-this sounds like a crank position sensor? That may be the problem.
If you have multi port injection, check that injector 3 is pulsing and putting gas into the cylinder.
A new fuel filter wouldn't hurt, but I doubt it is causing a problem in only one cylinder. Check for vacuum leaks. Change the plug for #3. If still no help, check fuel pressure. Doesn't sound lean, either, although if fuel pressure is low, it might be. Spark plugs that are white is an indication of lean running, BUT I doubt that your plugs have been run long enough to determine that.

Dear sirs...HELP!!!! ok we had issue w/ code P0303 and replaced plugs & wires...ran better when started up until I got ready to drive around block to test drive...idle seemed little rough when in park...

p0303 is cylinder 3 misfire. Check that plug, boot and coil. . You can move this coil and boot to another cylinder to see if the code changes. If it does, you have a bad coil or boot. Its most likely the spark plug boot on cyl 3.

Removing spark plug wires.

There is nothing but pressure holding them on. Pull, pull hard. Alot of times they are still original on a vehicle this old and a real pain. If you are replacing them possibly grab the top of the spark plug boot with channel locks or some real good pliers and reif on em. Make sure when the boot comes loose the metal tab off the wire comes off the plug as well, if not grab it with needlenose pliers and pull it off.
