CHECK THE PCV VALVE HOSE THAT CONNECTS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE THROTTLE BODY, THESE HOSES ARE KNOWN TO DETERIORATE AND ALLOW UNMETERED AIR TO ENTER THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER, WHEN THIS OCCURS THE OXYGEN SENSOR'S SIGNAL TELL THE PCM TO INCREASE THE PULSE WIDTH OF THE INJECTORS CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO ALMOST STALL.

I have a 2002 mercury sable mis fire in I believe cylinder 3


Are you getting spark to that cylinder, may be bad coil pack, is the injector getting a signal to fire, usually a test light will not work to test them, it pulses way to quick for test light to pick up, a noid light is what we use, it's specially designed for injector circuit testing. Also does it miss while driving or just at idle?? If only at idle even though your compression showed ok it can still be a valve going bad, put about a ounce or 2 of oil in the cylinder and check compression again, if you have a 20 or more psi increase you have either a valve or piston ring problem.

I have a misfire in 1 cylinder I had just bought spark plugs and wires I went back and reguaged them all and it still has a misfire what else could it be I have a 2001 Mercury sable.


It could be a coil pack. Follow the wire from the spark plug back to the coil pack. each one should run two cylinders. Switch the coil pack with a different one and see if a different cylinder misfires. They are easy to change, just 2 7mm screws hold each one on.

When driving on the interstate going about 70-80 my car will hop/**** and the rpm jumps up to about 7000. Also when sitting at a stop light, my car will shake really bad and act like it wants to stall....


Interstate problems: Faulty Torque Converter or Transmission Electrical Harness.


The shaking could mean a clogged fuel injector, fuel filter, or a bad spark plug in one or more cylinders. Your local parts house will show you how to troubleshoot it.

2001 mercury sable lopes at idle, misses on acceleration adn engine light blinks. Computer logs misfire on cylinder1 and 5. Possible fixes? Changed plugs ran ok two weeks.


CHECK THE COILPACKS. YOU MAY HAVE A COIL THAT IS NOT PRODUCING A HOT ENOUGH SPARK ON TWO CYLINDERS. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA.

Next change swap the injector with another and see of the problem moves.  If it does it's a bad injector.
