Ok, i would ave the ignition coil pack tested for its operational valve asap if possible. this is either an ignition coil pack issue or, a bad ECM. the ECM controls the ignition timing in this vehicle so, the problem will be there if the crank shaft sensor and cam sensors are ok.

I would pull the trouble codes asap as well. this will help diagnosis this issue correctly. this can be done at a local auto zone or a local mechanics shop as well.

Changed plug, wire , checked coil, still missing on #3 cyl, what do i need to do, engine light blinks


The check engine light blinks when the problem is serious enough to cause damage to the cat converter.
The problem could be spark, fuel, or something mechanical like a bad valve. So if you think the spark is good, the next step would be checking compression and fuel delivery.

My ford 2001 winstar engine is misfiring what can I check, I cleaned the injectors changed plug and wires still the same problem


You don't clean injectors by adding 10 oz
of anything, to 18 gallons of gas

The plugs while good to change at
70,000 miles ,won't be your problem

Wires should last the life of the car

Check,not change the ignition module .

I believe you have a Mazda

Engine light is blinking and it runs very rough/low power in gear.


Check the coil pack. Same symptoms on mine. It went at 74,000.
You can get the resistance specs from a shop manual. I have been told the plastic engine cover traps heat and makes short life of the coil pack. I removed the top engin cover, cosmetic only after replacing mine. You will probably need spark plugs also they are probably fowled by now. If you have not changed spark plug wires in awhile in would not hurt.

Have a 1997 ford thunderbird v8...started running very rouhg and check engine light blinking. Changed plugs and wires but noticed small coolant leak above engine. Ran fine for 10 days then started running...


Light should have stored code. Go to local autoparts chain & get free scan for codes and go from there. Saves all that guess work & money a lot of times. Write down code(s) and let us know.
