At idle miss firing on cyl 1 3 5


Check connectors for injectors and plug coils. The read out would have told you what injector or plug was faulty. Come back with the code numbers.

Engine code P2187 pops up. Also had miss in cyl 1 but resolved by changing long overdue plugs. Now P2187 comes on again (Lien at idle) Any suggestions before I bring it in. Vehicle has 145K miles. Runs...


P2187 = "system too lean at idle, bank 1"

The problem is in the bank of cylinders that includes cylinder 1. Running too lean at idle can often be caused by an air leak between the mass air flow sensor and the throttle body, a leaky intake manifold gasket, or some other vacuum leak. "False air" is downstream of the MAF sensor so it is not measured. The computer only attempts to add the correct amount of fuel to air that it knows about. It will attempt to compensate for lean mixtures but at a certain point, it will turn on the check engine light.

The miss that you had on cylinder one was caused by two things; the false air leaning out the mixture and a worn plug. You replaced the plug and now that new spark plug is able to fire the lean mixture. But the false air remains to be corrected. Eventually, you'll have misfiring again.

'86 honda accord 4 cyl...runs very rough as though missing on 1 cyl ...when removing plug wires 1 at a time each 1 removed makes engine run worse except for #1 cyl which when removed smooths engine out...


no, the plug is firing. But the timing is off. the plug is firing quite a bit before top dead center on that cylinder. The burning of the fuel mixture is occurring while that piston is on its way up and is slowing it down---dragging down the whole engine. i think you should change the distributor cap and rotor as cylinder one is firing at the same time as cylinder 2or 4. This indicates a possible carbon track in the distributor cap.

New head plugs and wires coil packs missing on #1 & #2 cyl


hi from uk i assume you have done all the above work correctly? and the leads from coils are correct firing order 1 3 4 2 ? CAMBELTtiming set correctly etc as you say this has happened since cyl head renewed and miss fire is on Nos 1+2 cyl's this normally suggest now after all work u have done and assume compressions are ok ? i had such a fault on a customers mini some years ago who had done exact type of job as you described this fault turned out to be the inlet manifold gasket had split between cyls inlet ports and resulted in missfire on 2 cyls adjoining on removal of manifold the gasket had been damaged whilst reassembling new gasket cured missfire which had caused weak mixtur on both cyls ie on induction more air being drawn via cracked gasket on each cyl and as your engine if injection same problem?? might be worth checking?? hope this throws some light on the problem?

Getting firing code error for cylinders 1,3 & 5 on my 1999 Sonata


I was wrong about the distributor being round (I was thinking about my other car). I found variations about the firing order but after troubbleshooting, varified the plug wiring order from the front of the car is 1 - 4 - 5 - 2 - 3 - 6 not 1 - 4 - 5 - 2 - 6 - 3 found on several web sites. From the front of the car looking at the engine, the back three cylinders by the firewall going from left to right are 1, 3, 5. The front three are 2, 4 & 6.
