Drive it to Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys and ask them to put the truck on a scanner. It will help identify the problem. You have it listed as an Explorer. It may be an Expedition, but usually the v10 is a truck engine and the largest Explorer had a 4.6L v-8.
Many of these v-10 engines lack disributors and have crankshaft sensors instead.

SOURCE: keeps mis-firing on cylinder #3

first, check the spark plug and wire going to the number 3 cylinder on the engine( # 3 cyl. is the one by the firewall, on the driver side of vehicle).If plug looks ok, make sure you get good spark at the end of the wire where it hooks up to the spark plug. If no spark, check the wire for cracks, breakache , etc. Make sure wire is in good conditions. If still no spark at the # 3 cylinder wire, check the ignition coil. Do, by disconnecting wire at ignition coil and with car running place a screwdriver at ignition coil and make sure there is good spark. If no spark comes out, replace ignition coil. If problem still continiues after making sure plug, wire and ignition coil are ok, check cyl. compression and fuel injector for proper fuel delivery. Simply, by replacing the plugs and wires may solve your complaint but you still need to check the car to be certain you don't waste your money by guessing and replacing unneeded parts.

SOURCE: Spark Plug Wire Sequence

Your firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4 and your #1 is the cap terminal the 3 O'clock from the front so that would be the one towards the driver's fender and the rotor rotates clock wise. So the next post would go to the #5 cylinder. Hope this helps friend. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your truck running 100%.

SOURCE: 1998 ford ranger, number 3 cylinder mis fires.

When you change the plug what color is the tip of the old one? This could be the answer to your problems. It should be a light beige or tan if everything is working properly.Just take one of the old plugs down to your local garage and get the mechanic to have a look at it. He'll be able to tell you why it keeps misfiring. Hope this helps.

Nubira 1999 wagon 1.6 ltr ... firing order request.. its not 1342 . can you help


The firing order is 1342. Be sure you have the wires on the distributor cap correctly and that the wire are on the correct spark plugs. #1 cylinder is on the right side of the vehicle. It would be on your left if standing in front of the car.

P0306 kuales la solusion


for po306,it means that the the car's computer has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing properly. In this case it's cylinder #6. FB.init("dd7d9e9681341cde77587bc6a2029f6f"); OBD-Codes.com on Facebook
you can try this:
If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
i know the launch creader can reset your car code.
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Engine cranks but wont start has an obd p 300 &p304 help me


P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected, the 304 is for cylinder number 4 any of these could be wrong If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors. Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open
