05 kia Sorrento #5 misfired already replace spark plug coil & injector same code still comes up #5 misfired can someone help me with this problem


you replaced the plug and injector but there is no mention of the HT lead or distributor cap being replaced or checked
It is possible that there is a crack or carbon track inside the cap which is also misfire for that cylinder. HT leads are carbon filled tracks with a wire insert at each end and if that wire fails to make contact with the carbon ( incorrect method of pulling from plug or cap) then the resistance in that lead makes the spark late which results in a misfire report.

2001 cherokee # 5 misfire..switched spart plug with another cylander still # 5 changed coil and injector didnt fix problem..HELP


Did you put a "noid" light on the injector connector to ensure it's getting the pulse to open? Do you know that you are getting spark at the plug? The HV could be leaking out of the cable or connector(s). Finally, if all that's good you may need to do a compression test.

Missing,viborating


Misfire could be a number of things:
a) spark plugs - change them if used over 15K miles - inspect/regap.
b) spark plug wires - change them if over 15K miles - inspect
c) ECM (electronic control module) - test with HEI (high energy ignition) tester.

The vibrating tells me that the engine is running on less than its normal compliment of cylinders - the shaking is produced by the imbalance caused in the engine by one (or more) cylinder(s)
not firing at all.

The "Check Engine" light probably is coming on due the the misfire condition. Go to Pep Boys or
Advance Auto Pats, where they'll tell you (free) your codes causing the "Check Engine' light to be
lit - the code coming from your truck's computer will probably be one or more of:
P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder misfire detected
P0301 - Cylinder 1 misfire detected
P0302 - Cylinder 2 misfire detected
P0303 - Cylinder 3 misfire detected
P0304 - Cylinder 4 misfire detected
P0305 - Cylinder 5 misfire detected
P0306 - Cylinder 6 misfire detected
P0307 - Cylinder 7 misfire detected
P0308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected
P0313 - Misfire detected with low fuel

Cylinder 1 is misfiring. The plugs and wires have been replaced.


Misfire condition can cause by few items.

1) mis-gap / worn / damaged plug.
One Hyundia and small displacement engine,it can also be loose plug.

2) oil leak / vapor covering the cermaic portion of the plug.

3) clogged air flter. // change interval for small car is 12,000 to 18,000 miles.

4) clogged PCV on // 140,000 or higher mile vehicle

5) worn valve cyclinder // 160,000 miles +

6) worn timing belt with an old water pump //// 140,000 miles+


Please reply with the currrent odomenter reading and recent repair record.

I have an upper (or lower, not sure) valve train problem. Cylinder #5 misfires almost all the time, and engine makes chirping sounds when running. What's wrong and how do I fix it?


The first thing to check is the spark plug. Pull out the #5 (or all plugs) and check the color on the isulator. It should be golden brown. If the color is black, the cylinder is running rich and this could be a valve or timing issue. If the color is light, the injector pintle may be dirty or there may not be spark in that clyinder. Test for spark and if there is none, it may be the plug, wire or the coil. Replace the plugs if they look worn or if there are lots of miles on them. Replace the wires if they also have lots of miles on them and show signs of wear. To clean the injectors I recommend the Lucas gas treatment. This will clean and lube the fuel and valve train. It will also help remove any carbon build-up in the pistons and carbon can cause misfires. If there are trouble codes, have them pulled to see what the computer is reading for errors. If you use Shell gas, stop using it. This gas is proven to be harmful to GM but Esso and Chevron are the ones to use.
As for the chirping, it is either the exhaust system or a motor mount making the noise.

Cylinder #1 misfire


#1 cylinder is the first one on the front of the engine on the drivers side. the reason for your misfire is most likely either a bad plug, bad plug wire, the coil pack or all of the above
