SOURCE: 96 firebird is having problems,

Have you ran a diagnotic check to see what codes are coming up?
Throwing parts at the problem will get expensive. It will also ruin other parts (Like your catalytic converter), when your engine is misfiring and not running properly. Your vehicle is an OBDII system, fix the problems in the order they appear (then clear, run and recheck)...meaning, one problem can cause another and so on. Fixing one problem may correct the other ones too.
You may get lucky with the shotgun approach, but usually not.
Run a diagnostic test, at least you'll know where to start looking for the problem.

SOURCE: Car coded yesterday p0303 noe check engine light flashing

The only thing left is the injector or a vacuum leak on the manifold gasket sucking air in and causing a lean condition. Thats is its the only common issue providing you dont have a head gasket issue leaking coolant on that cylinder and the compression and valves are not leaking. The old spark plug should show a coolant issue if present. The white part will be shiney if you have a coolant loss. If the coolant is looking real dark you should have the cooling system checked for gas being pushed into the cooling system on compression stroke thru the head gasket.

SOURCE: Moisture causes engine to "buck"

I would also consider using electrical sealer instead of replacing parts. They sell it at auto parts stores, and it effectively puts a waterproof coating over ignition parts like your distributor or coil packs and would prevent shorts.

What can be the problem on a bmw 533i 1982 that it dosnt have spark from the coil?

NEXIQ 125032 USB Link Software Diesel Truck Diagnose Interface
Cracked coil packs show symptoms particularly during cold and wet weather when moisture has entered the engine compartment. Cracked coil packs can cause a rough-running engine or a misfire at idle. Moisture that sits in the crevice of a crack on the coil pack will allow a spark (arc) to travel the length of the crack until it reaches a ground source, where it will cause a direct short. Electrical sparks jumping from a crack in the coil pack case accompanied by a loud electrical clicking or snapping sound indicate a cracked coil pack.

Flashing engine light on ford freestar,engine is running very rough at higher rpm

A flashing engine light usually indicates a misfire or several misfires. If the ignition components (coils, wires, distributors...) some how become exposed to moisture it is possible to get a rough running engine due to misfire(s) cause by arcking.

Hyundai sonata runs rough, little power, wet coil pack; how can i dry coil? Thanks

Use a high pressure AIR jet so that the water is blown off and also use a hot air dryer on the coil.
It is possible that the wet coil has reduced the firing intensity and made the engine rough with a change of timing.

Engine runs rough at 2500 rpms

sounds like you have a missing cylinder could be caused by a spark plug or wire or even a coil pack if your car has a coil pack if not then it could be your distributor cap, it could have a crack getting moisture in it causing the rough idle. hope this helped

I pressure washed my f-250 today including the engine to remove salt and dirt from plowing and shortly after it went into limp mode and subsequently stalled and will not start, I have a heater running...

you have a wet coil pack possibly. use hair dryer to dry the engine coil pack. if you're not familiar with coil packs, they replaced the old type distributors. water has built up in coil pack or you've blown off a spark plug wire from coil pack while pressure washing engine.

1999 Town Car began running very rough - suddenly.

When cleaning your engine, water/degreaser went down the spark plug ports. Try using a air compressor blow gun to remove the moisture from around the spark plugs and boots. The water was causing the engine to misfire on 3 cylinders at first and as the ports started to evaporate the moisture, the less misfiring was occuring. Dry thouroughly and hopefully coils do not have damage to them. Also check to make sure the boot is making good contact with the spark plug.

Ford Escape 3L 2002 Rough idle

generally, when the engine is washed, water gets trapped behind the spark unit and stays there, creating a shorting path for spark plug current. best to dis-mount the spark unit (follow plug wires back to source) and dry and clean it thoroughly.
