If its a 4 cylinder engine #2 cylinder is the second one from the front of the engine (distribuition side), if its a v6 engine #2 cylinder is the front one (distribuition side) on the left hand cylinder head.
take care!

Change all of the spark plug wires one at a time and label them so that you know where to put them back. I had the same problem and did this. The problem went away..

What causes mis firing on opel astra estate 160i 1997 models


It could be anything from a bad spark plug wire, bad coil, bad valve, bad fuel injector, vacuum leak, or other electrical or mechanical issue. Have you done anything to attempt to fix the issue such as performing a tune up, checking the compression on the misfiring cylinder, or swapping spark plugs or spark plug wires between cylinders to see what the misfire follows?

3.1 liter engine, 1996 misfire on cylinder 3


The code means that cylinder had no power at some point in time.
The most common reason is a faulty spark plug, but it could also be a faulty injector or low compression.
If you know the plug has spark, the next things to check are compression and fuel.

2002 ford escape 3.0L DTC P0305and P0306 what would you ck


P0305 - Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected
P0306 - Cylinder 6 Misfire Detected

When a misfire occurs, engine speed will fluctuate. If the engine speed fluctuates enough to cause the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor signal to vary, The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Electronic Control Module (ECM) can determine that a misfire is occurring.

When is the code detected?
- Engine Cylinder #5 and #6 is Misfiring.

Symptoms:
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/loss of power
- Hard start
- Engine hesitation

Possible Causes:
- Improper spark plug at cylinder #5 and #6
- Insufficient compression at cylinder #5 and #6
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- The injector circuit is open or shorted at cylinder #5 and #6
- Fuel injector #5 and #6 may be faulty
- Intake air leak at cyli

Possible Solution:
- Perform Injector Service
- Replaced Spark Plug #5 and #6
- Replaced Injector #5 and #6
- Replaced Ignition Coil #5 and #6

Hope helps.

My check engine light is on and the code is reading p0304 what could be the problem


You have a Misfire at Cylinder #4 meaning:
Dirty, fouled or malfunction Spark Plug at #4 Cylinder. Remove the Spark Plug and check the igntion (spark end).
Ignition (Spark Plug) Wire malfunction for #4 Cylinder.
Misfire from the Coil/Distributor at the #4 connection from Cylinder #4.
Get a Spark Plug/Wire/Coil/Distributor tester and check the Spark Plug, Wire and Coil.
I always recommend changing everything in sets meaning: Change all Spark Plugs and Wires.
