SOURCE: fouling spark plugs with black coating not oil

I am assuming the mitsubishi 2.5? Most likely it is an oxegyn sensor problem. If they are not reading like they should, it just floods out the car. Could also have a stuck open injector (stays on all the time).

Are you sure you have plug wires on correctly? Better double check them.

I change plugs and wires still have A miss

This may be due to a vacuum leak, but it can also be caused by dirty fuel injectors, a weak fuel pump (low fuel pressure) or a faulty fuel pressure regulator. It can also be caused my ignition misfire due to worn or fouled spark plugs, bad spark plug wires, or weak ignition coil. Also low cylinder pressure from burnt valve, head gasket leaks or piston rings.

1998 Acura 3.5rl My engine light came on got the codes P1206 P1399 its a misfire in cylinder6 and to start with spark plugs what should I do if it stays on And how bad this could be, please help(:

Plugs rarely cause a misfire. Bad gas mileage yes. Try swapping plug wires first and see if the misfire follows the swap. If it does, you still need a tune up, plugs wires, cap, and rotor. If it doesn't, pull the plugs and do a compression test on it. If it is within specs(sorry, I don't know the numbers). Then do a tune up. Look at number six plug. Causes for the plug to misfire would be, Cracked ceramic, fouled out from oil, and in some cases the electrode is completely burnt away.

What are the fouls on a spark plug

Fouled spark plugs are when they aren't firing, causing a cylinder misfire. Can be caused by a burnt electrode inside the plug from being old OR too much carbon or oil on the tip between the electrodes where the plug fires.

Will oil in spark plug compartment cause slow take off in acceleration.

Oil in the cylinder(s) can foul plugs, resulting in misfiring and thus loss of power. Another possibility is that the oil in the cylinder(s) comes from oil leaking into the cylinders. If these leaks are of sufficient size, they will reduce compression in the cylinder, and thus reduced power upon the cylinder firing.

Engine missis at 2-2 half rpm under load.

Ok, if the car is misfiring it probably has a bad air/fuel mixture which can cause fouled spark plugs. The causes of a bad air/fuel mixture would could be a bad oxygen sensors or a bad engine coolant temp sensor. But that car is known for having bad head gaskets. What is probably happening is coolant and/or oil is leaking into the combustion chamber. you can check under the cars engine, where the head meets the block, for oil or coolant leaks where they attach. Or check the coolant for CO2 with a CO2 tester (found at auto parts store) and check for low oil. If it tests positive for CO2 in the coolant then its a blown head gasket. once you get the problem fixed you will probably need new spark plugs and possibly a catalytic converter (the longer it misfires, the more fuel will be burned on the cat filter and it will enventually melt)

2000 astro with 4.3 new plugs ,wires,cap,rotor,dist. get 2 codes misfire cyl 3 and lean fuel mix bank one

sounds like you may have a stuck closed poppet (fuel injector) inside your plenum. No fuel would cause misfire and a lean conditon. Also a vacuum leak in that cylinder would cause a misfire but yoyr spark plug would be fuel fouled.

Cyl#3&5 foul plugs 97 suburban good compression all cyl new cap rotor distributor wires plugs module

Fouling occurs when the spark plugs' firing tip becomes coated with excessive fuel, oil, or combustion deposits so that it is unable to produce a spark. A plug can become fouled from continuous low speed driving, improper spark plug heat range (too cold), improper timing (over-retarded), too rich an air/fuel ratio or an oil leak into the combustion chamber. A variety of self-cleaning features are designed into most plugs to reduce fouling.

#6 cylinder misfire

Could be a valve seat burnt, check compression, if lower than the rest, probably that or a head gasket leak next to #6.
Borrow or buy a compression tester or get a garage to test for you.
To fix you will have to determain wether the valve can be ground back in or a new seat is required, but either way, as it's a big job, get all the valves done as if one has gone, how long before more go?
