Hi

Are you sure you are getting a spark to this spark plug ?

Run the engine and hold the HT lead with insulated pliers, near to the block, and you should see a spark jump.
If not, check the distributor cap, for cracks, or tracking marks, if found , renew cap.
Might be worthwhile just checking your compression reading on this cylinder too, if it is down, it will give you this problem.
Good Luck !

Let me know how you get on.

A FixYa rating would be nice...Thank´s ....John.

Y is my 97 chevy only fires on the number one cylender


if you have fire on the number one cylinder,it means that the ignition coil is working so your problem can come from spark plug wire or cap and rotor . unplug the wire from ignition coil to distributor and check for fire you are suppose to have fire because you saying having fire on cylinder one. from there change cap of distributor and rotor plus a set a spark plug wire.

Change my spark plugs and distrubutor cap and the 85 ranger want start


You may have got the spark plug wires out of sequence.
Reseat the coil wire going to the center of the distributor cap Check the spark plug wires at the distributor against the firing order as follows:
The spark plug firing order is 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 - 6 The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered :
firewall 3 - 6 2 - 5 1 - 4 front

Egine Code says miss fire block 1. What are we talking about?


I think it means that the number one cylinder is misfiring, which could be spark plug, coil, the plug wire, or the injector. Usually, if the injector is at fault it will have a code for that. Take the spark plug out and check the condition of the plug. If the plug seems alright, swap it with the number 2 spark plug and clear the trouble codes. If the plug was at fault, the computer should throw a code for cylinder 2, if it still throws a code for cylinder 1, then it may be the coil, If the engine has a distributor, change the distributor cap and rotor.

I have a 2001 Ford Expedition 4.6 4WD. Service engine soon light came on and when checked at parts store diagnostics said cylonder #2 miss firing. Is this a coil pack because we can't find plugs,...


If you do not see a distributor or spark plug wires, then you have a coil over plug system. Changing the coil pack is as easy as removing the hold down bolt and lifting the coil pack off the spark plug. Other things should be checked like signal to the coil, the fuel injector signal and the spark plug

I have a miss fire


Recheck the firing order; 1-6-5-4-3-2

On the distributor passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6-coil
On the distributor drivers side radiator to fire wall. 3-1-5

Cylinder passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6
Cylinder drivers side radiator to fire wall. 1-3-5

Good luck and also check the distributor cap again for proper seating.

Your ignition circuit is faulty- it's probably the ignition switch itself that is defective. The misfire is that the distributor cap has a crack in it and the spark is directed to a particular plug wire and the spark has found its way to a non designated plug wire. It wouldn't be the coil, change the rotor and distributor cap be sure to mark your plug wires and reinsert into the proper hole in the distributor cap. Good Luck, Jim
