1991 corolla 1.6L 4AFE.fuel injected. rpms high,misfire,weak acceleration,&exhaust/vacuum leak. other suggestions?

Your best bet on cleaning the fuel system is to add 1 can of B&G44K to the fuel. It is only available through dealership (11.00 a can at Toyota). It will condition your fuel pump and injectors. It is the best on the market and should not be substituted. Do this every 30,000 miles for continued performance.

My engine misses when accelerating and when rpm exceeds 2,000. Check engine code was for cylinder #2 misfire. I replaced the sparkplug and wire on #2, #4, & #6 but, have not figured out how to

Maybe try waiting untill dark ,fire it up,open the hood (kill the hood light)
spray the plug wires with windex(not water) and look for sparks ,if any ,put a set of wires on it. I suppect this is the only problem,bad wires will kill coil packs

Tuned up car changed 02 sensor full tank of fuel still running rough

Oxygen sensor only report the condition of the engine the rough running condition can range from a worn sparkplug wires to worn sparkplugs to valve problems to injector problems. with the cadillac deville a tune up should be the first attempt to smooth the rough idle with the inspection of the cap and rotor cap and rotor do have a tendancy to arc internally and create misfire so does sparkplug wire that can leak spark voltage to ground and create misfire. the spark plug wire especially if they are brittle and hard can create issues

My husband did a tune up on my car yesterday and now it wont start it will turn over like it wants to start but it wont he said that its miss firing we have bought 3 new coil packs and still will not start...

If your car is miss firing and your husband changed the coil packs,the wires leading from coil packs to sparkplugs must have got crossed.This will change car timing which will result in the car miss firing.He needs to go over wiring and correct problem for car to run right.You can go online to and type in Info about car to get the correct wiring layout.Your problem isnt the new plugs n wires.Its the wiring layout.

I have a missfire in cylinder7 but i have replaced coilpack and sparkplug what else could be causeing this

Fuel supply, air intake and vacuum leak(inside the cylinder). I recommend doing an injector balance test as well as a cylinder leakage (vacuum leaks) test to determine whats causeing the miss.

99 dodge caravan #4 cylinder misfires, i replaced spark plug wires and spark plugs. Scanner showed #4 still misfiring, could this be the coil?

It could very well be a bad coil pack,or you have low compression in that cylinder.If the compression is good then go with the coil pack,if not you may need a head gasket or an intake manifold gasket.

Could be a defective plug or clogged injector What cylinder was IDd. Isolate the problem cylinder swap the plug from a good cylinder see if the miss moves with the plug,if not try having the injectors cleaned. That should get the zoom zoom back.
