Intermittent misfire on my 91 vw polo 1.3 gt multi point injection. I have kind of a missfire on my polo, I have changed the plugs, leads, dizzy, Coil, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, and even the petrol tank because it had a leak on the filler neck, but I still keep getting the intermittent problem, I just can't figure it out, anyone?...

1989 v6 camry engine missfire


no your problem is definately the dizzie cap, as i found out to my cost on a lansia beta. any kind of crack in ur dizzie will cause probs. best way to find out is park your car in the dark open bonnet with engine running then get a mist spray with water in it spray at dizzie and you will see a slight yellow arc around the crack! any crack in bakelite distributors leads to loss of one or more banks

I'm needing a wiring diagram of the firing order for a 1992 Suzuki Sidekick 4 cylinder 16valve


The firing order is 1, 3, 4, 2. If all the leads have been pulled off the dizzy cap, you'll have to remove No 1 spark plug (leave it threaded into the plug hole by 1 turn) and the dizzy cap. Turn the motor over by hand in the clockwise direction and listen for air being forced out of the No 1 plug hole. When you start to hear that, it means you are approaching TDC on No 1 cylinder. Now look at the front crankshaft pulley and stop turning the engine when the mark on the pulley is close to the marks on the timing belt cover. It doesn't have to be exact (unless you've removed the dizzy). Now where the dizzy rotor is pointing is where No 1 lead has to be fitted. Observe the direction of rotation of the rotor and the next point it comes to will be where you fit No 3 lead; No 4 lead next; and finally No 2 lead.

have you isolated which cylinder is misfiring?
either way I would have a compression test done .. to find out which cyl is not firing pull 1 spark plug lead off at a time until you get the one that makes no difference

Misfire in cylinder 3


NO to the MAF Sensor Question, and Spark Plug Wires Or BOOT Will Cause Missfire. As For Mass Air Flow Sensor Easy Check is to Dissconnect it While Engine is Running And If ENGINE SMOOTHES OUT The Sensor is Bad

2000 Volkswagen Polo runs rough and dies in wet weather and rain


Girlfriend's 99 Polo had same issue. In fact it recurred yesterday! Anyway, am not expert, but it seems to be due to deposits building up inside distributor cap area and then getting damp in wet conditions, causing shorting of ignition 'signals'. Found solution is to clean inside cap every 6 to 12 months with a cloth and IPA (or water if you're stuck - just make sure to dry it properly!) and the problem goes away. Silly thing about her Polo is that there's no decent splashguard to protect the engine area from splashes from puddles etc. I've lost all respect for VW coz of the amount of silly things that have gone wrong with her car...! Hope this helps - sounds to me like it's exactly the same problem.

My 2 litre petrol beetle has developed a random misfire on cylinder 4. We have replaced the HT lead and spark plug but the problem persists. what else could be causing it?


its only an idea but the engine management on the early beetles was a bit primative if your confident swap the injectors over from nos 1-4 and then see if the random missfire moves from cylinders 4 to 1 if it does then you have an injector fault if not let me know as i am a vw master -tech hope this helps
as far as jennablackies fault goes it could be as simple as damaged plug leads which would cause a missfire have you got any fault codes because its obviously nothing to do with cat/lamda probes

1996 v-6 misfires , i've changed the ignition coils what next


If it is missfireing it wasn't your starter coils for a start. A reason your car will missfire is the timing is out. If it starts and runs your timing maybe a 1/2 a degree out and needs adjusting. It may also be one or more of your ignition leads (from spark plug to coils). Easy way to tell is with a timing light just plug leads in one at a time and start your car if timing lamp doesnot light or lights only as missfires change your leads, check your timing also while you are plugged into number 1 spark plug put timing light onto crank shaft pully should light up as a white dot goes past (bottom pully wheel). If you don't have access to timing light you can manually do it just take number one spark plug out with a small but longish screwdriver(careful not to dint or scratch piston head) crank motor by hand useing bottom pully till number one pot is to the top and look at bottom pully if white dot not at top crank motor till pot comes up second time and check pully wheel again. If still dot not on top your timing is out and you need to adjust it. If you find it to be your timing leave me message and tell me if fuel injected or carbureted and if you have magneto or distributer and I will try to help you
