In a case like this, it's never simple (i.e. spark plugs or plug wires) but I did find a craked distributer rotor once that was the cause. That is a cheap fix but sometimes hard to get to.

I have 1999 Oldsmobile alero. Tracoff light and service engine on. Took it to auto zone code default said injector 3 misfiring cleaned all injectors still runs rough and lights are on . is there anyway to...


I doubt the problem is anything connected to the ABS.
Depending on the actual code, cylinder 3 could be a spark plug or coil problem, or compression problem. If the check engine light comes on, the trac off does too.

What does it mean when check engine light blinks


A flashing check engine light indicates a serious condition with the engine, and the car should not be driven far until that condition is repaired. You need to have the fault codes read to determine what the problem is. You can have this done at Auto Zone for free. If you continue to drive like this, you will destroy the catalytic converter.

2001 Mitsubishi mirage cylinder misfire - no detection code.


You may want to try changing the coil pack rubber boots. Especially if your have recently had an alternator failure or battery failure. The coil packs themselves are probably good but I've changed my boots at least 4 times now. I have a 2000 Mirage DE with 198,000 miles. Runs great.

Service engine light came on went to auto zone they tested machine said number 3 cylinder misfire does this car take spark plugs because i dont see how to install them


It's probably not the spark plug. I would check the coil and injector. these two are the main cause of a single cylinder misfire. ps if the car is running fine now(not missing out) I would have the code erased and wait to see if it came back on.

1999 Chevrolet Suburban cylinder 3 misfiring?


P0300 is a multiple cylinder misfire and is used by all OBD2 vehicles on the road in the USA that is 1996 and newer, P0301 is cylinder number 1..P0302 is # 2 and so on...that tune up may have been needed and parts and labor are expensive..you have a cylinder that is misfiring and the cause must be located..possible causes are intake manifold air leaks..secondary ignition problems..fuel injectors..plugged EGR system if it has one..failed head gasket..burned or cracked valves..I have seen some crazy stuff..you need a tech on that one not a mechanic.
