Pull the plug in cylinder #1 and inspect it for corrosion, burnt or rich with gas. If corrosion or burnt replace plugs if wet with gas and the plug is in good condition replace distributor cap and rotor, if this model has coil packs replace the coil pack that covers cylinder #1 it may also cover another cylinder as we'll some of the earlier models had two cylinders per coil. Hope this helps

My 1993 Nissan sentra had water and rusty gas which made it start to miss until it ran on only one cylinder. So I. Too the pump out of the tank and cleaned the tank replaced the pump and the filter it...

Could be number 1 and 2 injectors are now blocked.

I suggest you go back to basics and ensure the ignition system and compressions are sound. Coincidence seems to happen quite a lot with car troubles.

If all else fails it will be time to check those injectors. It is sometimes possible to position them so the spray can be observed or numbers 1 and 2 could be fitted in the 3 and 4 positions to check the misfire follows or simply remove the injectors and take them to a specialist for testing.
If the injectors are found to be blocked it would be best if the fuel lines and the fuel rail, pressure regulator are also flushed and thoroughly cleaned as well as the pump, filter and tank.

2 7 engine in a 2004 Chrysler Sebring with 84000 miles and and cylinder 2 is misfiring will a tuneup fix the problem

miss fire can be a number of things weak spark plug damaged lead, faulty knock sensor or a problem with the injector.. clean the spark plugs check them for changes between them. there should be no real difference on them but black soot etc is a chance its over ritch. water getting in to the spark plug or a damaged rubber seal on the plug connector can also cause this problem so would check for this to. would say its the spark plug area my self.

I have a 1975 dodge D100 miss fireing

The correct firing order for the engine is 1=8=4=3=6=5=7=2. Standing in front of the engine the right bank is odd numbered. and the left bank is even numbered. Also check to see if you are getting fuel to the carburator. Hope this will help you.

  1. Well it can happen to the best of us check your firing order again it's actualy pretty simple.
1 3 5
2 4 6 This is how the firing order is 1 3 5 being in the back of the engine towards the fire wall and 2 4 6 in the front. Just place the wires on the corresponding numbers.
