Miss Firing and reves change


May help a little to know car make and model. Most cars don't have points anymore. Maybe plugs are bad, even if they are new, I've had that before.

I have a 1998 gmc jimmy 4.3 6cylinder 4x4 I blew


What I've seen done to test an injector is to pull it, and swap it for another cylinder. If the miss moves, then the injector is bad. If the miss stays on #5, then the problem isn't the injector.

I put in new plugs and the idle is ruff


Check firing order, then check if gap is wrong onone plug, or one got cracked. With engine idling, remove plug wires on at a time(assuming firing order is correct)and the one that does slow the engine down should be the culprit. Be careful!

My Toyota Camry 96 isn't starting. New battery the alternator and starter are working properly and there are new spark plugs . The engine is turning over and it's getting fuel but it just doesn't start....


Faulty MAP or MAF sensor, EGR valve stuck open, spark plug wires don't match firing order, large vacuum leak to intake manifold, very dirty fuel injectors, idle air control valve defective, poor compression in cylinders due to incorrect valve timing or leaking fuel injector o-ring seals.

When it idles it acts like its missing I put


Check and make sure your distributor cap and rotor are not corroded and gunked up. If a spark plug is ever dropped, the center electrode could be cracked leading to a improperly firing spark plug (causing a misfire). parts get dropped during shipping all the time.

good luck!

'83 Monte Carlo - Miss fire at idle/accel./driving


You can have car put on scope and it wll show any irregularities in the ignition system. It can also be dowithout any equipment. First, loosing ALL 8 spark plug wires, Now place the spark plug wires loosly back on, just secure enough to secure. You might need 2 people. Being the miss is more consistant in gear, APPLY THE EMERGENCY BRAKE , put trans into drive and raise rpm's till miss is obvious. Remove ONE plug wire at a time, TILL THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN MISS. Thats the cylinder missing. Start with the spark plug, inspect, work back to wires and cap. An EXTREME result will be NO COMPRESSION.
