The injector is a good possibility, although you should check for spark in the wire first, as the electrical is the weakest link in the system. Put a spare plug in the end of the wire with the plug resting on metal, then have someone crank the van to see if you have spark that far, test and replace spark plug, (do not get shocked!) then look into a new injector or a good cleaning.

did you replace only one spark plug? that can cause issues because of differences in resistances between cylinders. also, did the map code stay off after replacing

If you already replaced the wires, I would suggest replacing the plugs, distributor cap and rotor. They are also very important parts of the spark. Fuel injector problems can also cause misfires.

SOURCE: misfire #1 cylinder (autozone scanner) I changed

inspect the sparkplug plug first!! After engine is running for 20 sec (while misfiring), pull your #1 sparkplug and check for fuel. If there is no fuel replace the injector!!If there is fuel, post a comment for more help!!

What is causing this? my 2001 alero has misfire on cylinder 1, i have changed plugs, switched coil packs, it doesnt seem to get up to speed. what is the problem??

The compression could be too low to create the bang it needs, I have seen it a lot, try the connecting wiring harness first it might just have a bad connection, but it does sound like low compression

What causes engine misfires to stay after new plugs and coil packs?

Try swapping the coil packs around - like swap #1 with #2, and swap #6 with #5, see if the misfires MOVE with the coil packs swapped to the new cylinders or if they stay with the cylinders. If they move with the coil packs, the new coil packs are bad. If they stay with the cylinders, there's a problem with those cylinders. You DID replace that camshaft sensor, right?

Have you checked your #1 and #6 injectors?

2002 Nissan Altima is burning oil shakes after 3 miles max of driving, Smokes when foot on gas and reads cylinder 4 misfire. What can the problem be?

i would get vehicle on a scanner and check live data.
could be a faulty coil pack or injector on cylinder 4. Try putting the coil pack from cylinder 4 onto cylinder 1 and rescan.
If the fault moves to cylinder 1 the coil pack you moved is at fault.
You may have to replace the whole coil pack if individual units are not used on your vehicle.
The injector process is same as above but a bit more tricky due to the fuel pressure in the careful!
If swapping these has no effect you wil have to carry out a compression check on all cylinders and see howthey look against cyl 4.
The shaking is the misfire, the smoke is unburnt fuel.
Dont drive it in this condition you will destroy the catalytic convertor.
I assume the vehicle has a regular service and the spark plugs are in good condition.
note...when this prob is resolved..change the oil and filter, it will be contaminated by now.

2000 ford explorer Have a p0305 code started a while back when accelerating to pass a car the truck would **** and the check engine light would blink but once i take foot of the gas it would go back to...

A PO305 code is for a Cylinder #5 misfire code. This would definitely cause a lack of power when passing and would cause the check engine light to blink when you are into the throttle and then stop once you let off the throttle. This could be caused by a faulty coil pack or a bad spark plug for that cylinder. I dont know which engine you have in this vehicle, but if each spark plug has its own coil, you can try unplugging the coil pack for cylinder # 5 while the vehicle is running and if it changes the way it runs then the coil pack is probably good, but if there is no change when you unplug the electrical connector, there is a good chance the coil pack is bad. It is not unusual for these coil packs to burn out.

Hope this helps... if there is anything further i can help you with, please feel free to ask.

A misfire alarm typically means the coil pack mounted above the sparkplug indicated in the misfire had gone defective.

To test it, swap the coil pack with another cylinder, and see if the misfire goes from #2 to the cylinder you put it on.

If the misfire continues to be on #2, then consider changing the sparkplugs.

I hope this helps.

2005 Cavalier misfiring on 2 cylinders, dumping fuel

Spark plugs get there voltage from the ignition coil packs, more then likely you have a bad coil pack or coil pack boot, pull one coil pack or spark plug wire or boot at a time, if you see a drop in rpm, that one is good, if no drop bad coil pack.

Getting a po306 code on a 02 intrepid. changed all plugs and wire on the 6 cylinder. still has a bad misfire.

those cars have seperate coil packs right? try to move # 6 coil to a different cylinder and swap them- clear codes and try again. if P0306 comes back it is not a coil problem. If it comes back as a P0304 or (whatever cylinder you moved it to- you know its a bad coil. If not it could be a bad injector on # 6, intake vaccume leak, cracked intake manifold, cracked head, broken valve, bad headgasket or alot of things. Try swaping the coil first

Sentra misfire problems

I would pull the sparkplugs and examine.Are they Black? ,Wet?, Hot?, Cold? Also whenever you change the plugs change the wires (cap and rotor if app.).Cracked wires are hard to see but can cause spark to find ground before it gets to sparkplug.8 year old car how many full tune ups?.Good Luck.

2004 Audi A4 misfire

it is always a good idea to stay with o.e.m parts and yes there is updated parts in the newer coils. and yes the M.A.F will also cause misfire faults but will not make check engine light flash or make car shake and shudder. also check you wire harness going to your coils make sure your ground wires are not cracked. That could be the main culprate. good luck hope this helps
