1998 ford explorer 4 5 6 cyl. misfire


Hi:
A code P0304 - 305 or 306 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wire
Faulty coil (pack)
Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
Faulty fuel injector
Burned exhaust valve
Faulty catalytic converter(s)
Running out of fuel
Poor compression
Defective computer

Possible Solutions:
If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

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.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Code shows misfire on #4 spark plug, happens every four months like clock work. Change the spark plug and it is fine until it happens again.


It is possible that that particular cylinder is getting enough oil to the plug (seeping by the rings or valve) to foul it out after a period of time.

I need a picture of the spark plugs on a 1998 ford taurus numbered


I don't have a link with pictures, but I will describe the cylinder and coil numbers for both the overhead valve (OHV) and the overhead cam (OHC) as best I can.
Facing the engine from the front bumper.
On the 3.0 overhead valve (OHV) the cylinder location looks like this:
1 2 3
4 5 6

The coil location looks like this:
5 1
6 2
4 3

If you have the 3.0 overhead camshaft (OHC) engine again facing the engine from the front bumper your cylinder location looks like this:

1 2 3
4 5 6

Your coil location looks like this:

4 6 5
3 2 1

I hope this was helpful.

Check engine light is on, engine weak and missing


put a screw driver into the plug that you think is missing get it one forth of an inch away from a good ground and crank the engine over if there is spark try replaceing the plug or plug wire or both, and if there is no spark if that model has a distributor replace the cap and rotor and wires otherwise if it has the coil pack you will have to change the coil pack.

If you have fuel, replace the coil plate, you fried the diode in the coil plate causing it to not fire to test you need a spark plug detector light to see if your getting spark. If you just disconnect the wire and test it like the old spark plug system you will fry the coil or the diode in the plate, I forget what ford calls it, GM calls it a firing diode?? I think rusty memory.
