Have you replaced all 8 coils and plugs? I have found it best to replace all at once as one that is marginal makes the others work harder. Also, make sure that coil is Motorcraft brand and not aftermarket. The computer and aftermarket coils do not play well together

Wrong diagnoses

You will only have (1) bad COP Ignition Coil, at the most

The Spark Plugs are not an issue at all ,unless they are in the
motor over 60,000 miles or more than 3 years,& not the cause
of the misfires.

You can replace a coil yourself in 15 min
They cost $59.00 tops at the auto parts store

On a V8
Wells 5C1179
Wells (duralast/autozone) C1234 Both the same coil
On a V6 you can look on Wells web site or a lot of
internet sites

If you have a V6 & most L/S probably are & you have
to do the right side of the motor,then the upper intake has
to come off ,to do coils or plugs

I own a 2004 LS & wouldn't let anyone touch it

Very few people are good with L/S Misfires or most Fords
Some shops avoid them

There are several ways to look for misfires
You have to have scan tool software & know how
to use $ Mode 6 & have & use an oscilloscope
All testing has to be done on a road test with the
test equipment on the coils
Doubtfull many repair shops even know what I'm
referring to.

You can solve any coil issue yourself ,if you buy one
coil only & put it in a cyl with a misfire code
PO 301 thru PO306 or 8

If you don't get the bad coil, replace the old one &
continue to walk the new one

There are some real serious issues you will someday
face & you will need my help, as a dealer can't figure out

You have to use logic,& get your head around how these
systems work & loose the ford product additude & things go
as they would on any vehicle brand.

Don't even go near a dealer,waste of time & huge amounts
of money
Do it my way
Get involved & install a coil & go from there

swap the coil with another cylinder and see if the misfire follows the coil

SOURCE: Error code P0353

It might be getting spark but that spark might be out of the allowed timing signal that triggers it. You can not tell without a scope.

I have a 2003 lincoln ls 3.9 v8 the code shows that I have a 8th cylinder miss and a bad o2 sensor can the o2 sensor make my car miss and it doesn't miss all the time either


A faulty o2 sensor will not cause a misfire. This is exhaust related, which is more than likely due to a clogged catalytic converter, which was is likely due to your misfire leaving unburned fuel to go to the exhaust, which clogs the catalyst. You likely smell a rotten egg type smell in the car at times. Your misfire is likely another cylinder. The OBDII codes are not great at finding the cylinder of the misfire in this particular car. Your best bet is to replace all 8 coils and plugs at the same time with OEM Motorcraft coils only. One bad coil makes the others work harder, meaning if you replace them one at a time, you will be constantly chasing a misfire.

Dead miss on one cylinder 99 sl2


A quick way to check the single coil pack if you know for sure which cylinder is miss firing and its setting a code you can swap the coil pack to another cylinder and see if the miss changes from one cylinder to another. If it travels to where you moved the coil then the coil is bad,if not you have other problems.

Missfire on cylinder 8 on bmw 545


move the ignition coil to another cylinder and see if the miss fire moves. If so replace that ignition coil. If the miss fire stays on that cylinder it is more likely the fuel injector. Was their carbon on the spark plugs when you removed them? This is indicative that the fuel injector is gummed up.

Engine light came on and said 8th cylinder misfire i changed spark plugs and ignition coil but still showing same problem


Could be a clogged fuel injector. Check all ignition connections to make sure they are clean and secure as well as the one for the associated fuel injector.

Remove the top cover on the valve cover concealing the coils. Remove and inspect the spark plugs, and replace as necessary. Start the engine and see if the miss has been eliminated. If the miss is still there, a problem could also exist in the wires or coil or even the fuel injector, which will all need to be addressed as the diagnosis progresses. A fuel injector will cause the same type of a miss if it sticks.

  • 2 Mist the spark plug wires, and watch for evidence of arcing to the cylinder head cover. This will indicate a bad wire. If this is visible, then replace the spark plug wires.
  • 3 Turn the engine off, and loosen the wires at the coil by giving them a twist and pulling them out of the coil. Leave them on the coils--you just want to loosen them a bit to make the next step easier.
  • 4 Start the engine. Using a pair of pliers with insulated handles, pull one plug wire out of the coil at a time and watch for a noticeable drop in engine RPM. The cylinder that has no drop or noticeable decline in RPM is the one causing the miss. Also when the wire is removed, watch for a good spark at the coil to the wire when the wire is held close to the coil. This could indicate a bad coil if the plug wire checks out fine.
  • 5 Check the suspect wire with the Ohm meter, and test for continuity through the wire. If there is continuity, the miss is still present and there is no spark to the wire when it is removed from the coil, replace the coil.
  • 6 Check the fuel injectors. If the plugs and wires are good and there is a spark at the coil to wire test, then checking the injectors is the next step. If this is fine, then a compression test should be done to locate an internal engine problem. Start the engine, and remove the electrical connectors to the fuel injectors one at a time and listen for a significant engine RPM drop. If one cylinder is found to make no difference or very little in comparison to the others, replace the injector.

    Engine miss


    if you have only one cylinder getting that excessive fuel it indicates that the computer thinks that that cylinder is not sparking and thinks no fuel is the proble. this is due to a timing issue. even though you replace the injector which was most likely not the problem to begin with. in order to get spark the coil has to energize you more than likely have a bad coil pack.replace the coil and your miss will no longer exist.
