It is either a faulty fuel injector for cylinder 29try swapping injectors); or the coil module that sends signals to the individual is mounted inside the air cleaner housing., black in color, rectangular with a harness entering one side and exiting the other..

How do fix miss firing on the motor number 2 cylinder?

Cars are computerized these days and the sparking system does not use spark plugs any more but rather a spark module. Just like the old spark plug system though when the tip of one of the spark units wears the gap gets too wide and no longer can bridge the gap. These cannot be adjusted. My V8 Caddy engine has a spark module that had this problem so I had to replace the module which holds 4 spark units, one for each of 4 cylinders. There are 2 modules, 1 front and 1 rear. I only had to replace the front module.

Why are cylinders 1 3 and 5 are miss firing 1997 toyota camry

you cannot change oxygen sensors from front to back as they are 2 completely different units doing completely different jobs
the problem is water in the electronics and you use a dewatering fluid ( wd-40 or like ) to disperse the water not starter fluid

Can it have a short in we put cole packs on it new alternator batterie modulare ouder the cole pack but it is still like it is miss firing can you help us been broke down for 3 weeks realy need our car

If the coil pack did not resolve the issue you are experiencing, then you may either have an injector issue, or a faulty PCM-powerterain control module, also known as the vehicle's computer.

P0304* Cylinder #4 Misfire on a 1999 dodge intrepid. were is this cylinder located.

This would be the forth cylinder from the front(where the pulleys,and belts are).There will be a coil,and under the coil,is a boot,connected to the spark plug.The miss fire could be any,of the three.I would replace the spark plugs (all four)and the boots.Then if the miss fire is still there,replace the coil,on number four cylinder.

I have a miss fire

Recheck the firing order; 1-6-5-4-3-2

On the distributor passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6-coil
On the distributor drivers side radiator to fire wall. 3-1-5

Cylinder passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6
Cylinder drivers side radiator to fire wall. 1-3-5

Good luck and also check the distributor cap again for proper seating.

Mis fire cylinder

Cylinder misfires come in many different flavors. Sometimes only 1 cylinder will fail, sometimes more, and sometimes it will jump around. The lesser amount of cylinders you have, the more noticeable the misfire will be. In all cases it depends on the condition of the electronics, and hardware (i.e.; spark plugs, spark plug wires, coil/coil pack(s), etc.) In my experience, the lesser amount of electronics you have, the easier solving the problem will be. This answer applies only to gas powered internal combustion engines. Not diesel powered engines. First you want to make sure that ALL hoses and electrical connectors/wires are located in their correct place, and connected properly. Next to identify the problem. When does it miss? At idle or throughout the driving range (while at idle and in motion). Is it intermittent (does the miss occur randomly)? Does the vehicle seem to have 1 miss? Or more than one miss (This is more easily noted on vehicles equipped with motors that contain a smaller amount of cylinders)? Now to explore each question, I will use a hypothetical situation. I have a small car with a 4 cylinder motor. I drove it home last night, and when I started it this morning, it had a definite miss. To identify which of the cylinder(s) are misfiring, no actual tools are required. To find which cylinder(s) are having the problem, simply open the hood with the key "off," and check to see if anything is loose (i.e. a spark plug wire). If everything is snug, try removing one of the plug wires (NOTE: Only remove 1 plug wire at a time!). Then reach inside the car and try to start it. If you have a 4 cylinder motor any difference will become immediately apparent. In fact, most times the car will fail to start and stay running. If the plug wire you removed made no difference in the way the car runs, that means that cylinder is not firing. Replace the wire to its original location, and make sure that it is snug. Try another wire. Continue this process until you find the cylinder(s) that are causing the problem. (NOTE: Keep notes on which cylinder(s) are having the problem, and how the car behaves.) Once you have identified which cylinders are having the problem, it is now time to determine the source of the problem. On newer cars (approx. 1985-present, depending on make and model) the problem can be more complex to try and solve. In this scenario, I am using an older car. Now it is time to see if the spark plug is getting any spark. To test this, remove the spark plug wire from the bad cylinder's spark plug, and set it against something metal on the motor, for best results, place the metal tip of the wire slighty away from the metal object (like the valve cover), but close enough for the spark to arc across (approx. 1/4 inch is best). Start the car. If you look at the tip of the wire and there is a spark arcing across the wire to the motor, that wire is transmitting spark. If it does not, skip down to the next paragraph. Since the wire is transmitting spark, the next thing to check would be the spark plug. (At this point you will need tools) Remove the sparkplug from the misfiring cylinder, and check for detonation of the tip of the plug (plug tip is destroyed), corrosion(white chalky residue), and foulage (if the plug is wet, and it smells like gas, that means that there is fuel getting to the plug, but the plug is not igniting it. If the residue is oily, then there is oil seeping in through to the combustion chamber. If it is not oily or wet, but is black, that means that the plug is carbon fouled, either from too much fuel (a rich fuel mixture), or that the spark plugs have not been cleaned/ replaced in a long time. To test the spark plug, plug it back into its wire, and set it again against something metal (NOTE: Make sure the location yout choose, has the least chance of falling over and into other moving parts). Start the car, and check for spark at the end of the plug, if there is no spark, the plug is dead, and needs to be replaced. If it does spark, that means that there is either a fuel delivery problem, sensor malfunction, or vacuum/vacuum hose leak, and not a spark issue
