If the spark plugs have been cross threadded at any point chances r that the plug hole is damaged and in need of either a okug thread insert or best way is to o
pull the head and have a machine shop repair it correctly.

Gheck to see if the spark plugs are screwed in tight.. This is about the only thing that would cause this othey than a broke head or stripped plug hole.

1998 nissan frontier xe 4 cyl auto misfire cyl #2 engine vibrates like a bad sparkplug when driving

To review - - do you know for a fact the distributor is firing that cylinder? And do you have power and a ground pulse for that injector ?
You say no vac leak, but have you done a compression test on all cylinders ? Is it possible the egr valve is leaking and affecting that cylinder ?

'96 Honda Accord 4-cylinder with 233,000 miles, compression with approx. 175psi for all cylinders, 34 psi fuel pressure at idle, new distributor with cap and rotor plus new #2 injector. Problem is the car...

Well, since the spark to #2 comes from the distributor, and the others are firing, could be a bad plug wire or sparkplug. Also make sure there isnt anything down around the sparkplug that could be shorting out. I would go ahead with new plug wires for starters, as that usually gets replaced when you do the distributor and rotor. Inspect plugs too- they may need replacing.

I have a ford focus 2001 se. cylinder 2 is misfiring and ive replaced coild pack, sparkplugs, sparkplug wires and fuel filter.. im goin to rip catylic converter off today. any professional ideas wouldbe...

check manual compression in that cyl. then check one thats not missing you will probably find compression low or none in cyl 2 could be valves in the head stuck open, bent, cracked head or head gasket leaking into cyl 2 or possibly in the lower end crankcase. i would def.check compression first before anything else...

2003 toyota mr2 exhaust valve

It could also be broken piston rings...but if your not burning or using oil, highly likely. The way to check wether it is piston rings or an exhaust valve is to put some oil(about 2 tablespons) into the effected cyclinder space by removing sparkplug and adding. **you must remove all sparkplug leads at this time to prevent it from "firing". If you then attatch a compression guage to the cyclinder, turn the engine over with the starter motor,noting the reading. If it is "broken rings" the compression will improve dramatically with engine turnover. If it stays the same the culprit is a burnt exhaust valve(s). This should ONLY be done by a competent person. Hope this helps

I have a Dodge ram 1500 2005 4.7 that is popping through the throttle body

The first thing i would do would be a compression test, this test will tell you if theres a dead or weak cylinder, the poping can be caused by a bad valve , if theres a bad valve which would be an intake valve the compression test will tell you which one. if the compression is good in all cylinders then it could be a crossed sparkplug wire but if this engine uses the coil on plug ignition then that rules that out but if it uses sparkplug wires then it may be a crossed one, start with the compression test , this will tell you if its a valve problem and which cylinder it is, from there you will need to frist make sure its a brunt valve or if its stuck due to carbon build up. again start with the test first and we will go from there. good day.

I have fire, gas, and no blown fuses. ive replaced distributor, cap, button, and coil and also replaced fuel pump. Im lost dont know what to do

Did you make sure you put the sparkplug wires back in the right holes?
If so it could be a compression problem. If you have the tool you can check it yourself by removeing the sparkplug one at a time and and put the gage in the empty sparkplug hole. Have some one turn over the motor and see if your compression is right. Do this to all the cylenders to be sure. If you dont have the tool, take it to a mechanic and have it checked. He can tell what it is and what it is suppose to be. Not knowing what engine you have, I can not tell you what compression to look for. If your compression is low, the rings are gone.

Engine misfiring.

most all v8's have the same firing order which is 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2. sparkplug gap seems fine. with the engine off, bend the sparkplug wires between your fingers, if small cracks appear then replace them. number one sparkplug is located at the front driver side of the engine, front to back on this side are cylinders 2,4,6, and 8 respectively. turn the engine to the compression stroke on number one, pull the cap, the rotor points where number one will be.

Engine runs rough lack of power, disconnect sparkplug wires #2, and #3 runs the same

Check for proper compression with a guage on #2 and #3 cyliders. Check for proper firing order. If OK, try replacement of plugs, wires and ditributor cap and rotor.
