Check all of the vaccum lines also check the one behind the throttle body, also check the fuel filter and also just maybe one of the spark plugs is not gapped right.

I changed the spark plugs in my 2002 buick rendevous now it missing. i checked the vacuum hoses all was ok.wat else could cause this problem


You have an "Engine Miss" and even after replacing spark plugs, wires, upper and lower manifold gaskets, and push rods, the Engine Miss still remains. You may want to stop and run a compression test. This test will give you a base line. If one cylinder has low compression, you won't get rid of the miss until that is fixed. Please write back with all the specific information regarding tests, all symptoms (is the engine light on and if so what are the codes?). The more tests that you perform the more you will know and will narrow down your search. All types of things will cause a miss. Take a look at the spark plugs and wires, just because they are new doesn't mean that they are not defective, also check the EGR valve, 02 sensors and exhaust back pressure, clogged filters (fuel&air), defective coil, TPS sensor, PVC valve, or timing. Please let me know if I can help you some more, good luck.

Check engine light is on, engine weak and missing


put a screw driver into the plug that you think is missing get it one forth of an inch away from a good ground and crank the engine over if there is spark try replaceing the plug or plug wire or both, and if there is no spark if that model has a distributor replace the cap and rotor and wires otherwise if it has the coil pack you will have to change the coil pack.

Engine missing on occasion when accelerating.


missing on occasion? you changed the plugs? was it missing before are after you changed the plugs? Missing is usually caused by a spark failing to jump across the spark plug gap.i would first look for a broken spark plug insulator. Secondly, bad spark plug wires ( if you re-used them the connector might have pulled off the wire internally) also look at the coil and distributor for cracks or other problems if the plugs and wires check out ok .
