    Because it's electronic ignition not a lot you can do, but change parts. I would ad rotor, cap and spark plug wires if more than 30,000.

My es 300 missing after tune up what could it be


I am presuming it didn't missfire before the tune-up?
You could have damaged/cracked a plug installing them (the gap was checked?)
You may not have a plug wire securely on or mixed up the arrangement/firing order.
If it misfired before and that was why you were doing the tune up - then it is highly likely an injector is malfunctioning.
If this doesn't help - please give us the: Year, Make, Model & Engine - will help with any further assistance.

What should a complete tune-up with new hoses cost for a 2005 Buick La Sabre?


No...your BiL is OOHM (out of his mind) if he thinks they're comparable.

A tune-up shouldn't cost more than $200 - but depends on what all is being done.


What all does his 'tune-up' include? What are the hoses for?


Sell the F150 yourself.... even w/high miles it's worth $$. Go to KBB.COM and look up the Private Party value. Probably $5,000+

Engine problems


Hi there:
When was the last time the engine was full tuned up? This sounds like a classic ignition misfire! They usually go bad under a load like under acceleration, but can be noticeable at any time.


It is very important to have your engine equipped with good tune up parts or you may be causing damage to other components of you car like the catalytic converter which can be expensive.


Possible causes:

Ignition misfire causes by any bad tune up part and or ignition coil or coils.
Bad spark plugs, spark plug wires and cap and rotor (if equipped)
Wrong tune up parts spark plug, wires etc...


The quickest way to check the ignition components, is by looking closely for leaking secondary voltage. Visual look at all the tune up parts to see if you can see any sparks coming from any of the wires or coil (or coils) when the vehicle is running. If not, you can put your hand on the coil/coils and wires when the engine is running and see if you feel any small voltage leaking form the tune up parts.

It will leak secondary ignition voltage from the tune up parts caused by high resistance from carbon tracking if they are bad. This is very common if the tune up parts are not changed regularly!


If any is found, the tune up parts are simply bad and will need to be replaced! If none is found than you can spray a mist of water on the tune up parts when the engine is running and see if that causes the engine to stumble or run rough at all. Again, if it does, the tune up parts are bad and will need to be replaced.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Stumbles on acceleration fuel pressure seems good. just had major tune up. car runs good after that but shifts real hard


was the vehicle stumbling and shifting hard, before the major tune up, if not, i would check all of the connections on top of your engine, just to make sure nothing was accidently unplugged , when doing the tune up, if everything checks out ok, i would check the throttle positioning sensor, this is connected into the side of the throttle body, and it has a wire connection to it, hope that this information has helped you. this can create stumbling. also was the new spark plugs that were installed properly gapped.

How often should I get a tune up?


as your engine is computer controlled, you should never need to "tune it"if you start to use more fuel than usual just changing the air filter can have a major effect,same as using high octane fuel....the computer will compensate for any loss/improvements,to give you the best mileage/performance.

Backfiring


good news/bad news

the good news it may just be a timing issue
the bad news is it may be a valve train issue

lets start with some information like...
how long have you had the vehicle
how has it been maintained
when was the last tune-up
are there any aftermarket items installed?
