I have a 2001 Ford Windstar w/3.8 V-6. The codes state that #5 cyl has a misfire. I just changed the plugs, put new plug wires on & installed 4 new O2 senors. What else should I be looking for?

Double check the plug wires, if the boot to the plug wire was not installed with spark plug boot lube. It may have pulled away from the plug just enough to make it a bad connection. Go back and push on the plug wire boot to the spark plug and make sure the wires are routed properly and not touching anything other then the separator that hold the wires in place. The other thing would be a dirty injector ir an bad wire to the injector. Start with te plug boots and routing. Good luck friend, I have a Montana and same thing here, take me longer to ensure that all the plug wires are set then to replace the plugs.

Sport Wrangler 6 cyl. Engine lite flashing. Diagnostic tool lists code PO305. I looked it up and it states misfire in cyl #3 & 5. How do I fix this?


Check the plugs, wires and coil pack for these two cylinders. Most lilkely it is the coil pack, they work for 2 cyclinders at a time. cylinder motors use 3 and 8 cyl moters use 4 of these. If your und=sure where the coil pack is, follow it backwards from the spark plugs.

2001 Pontiac Montana - what is a misfire #5?


Without your actual trouble code, I am assuming that you are have a misfire on cylinder # 5. The computer cannot really tell what is causing the misfire only that cyl 5 is not putting out full power. If it misfires when cold then smooths out as it warms up, I would say it is probably an injector that is sticky, as it warms up it starts working properly.

I have an 01 windstar with misfire on cyl 3 and 4


check your coil I have seen alot of the fords with the ohv 3.0 engines that the coils will have cracks in the plastic and jump fire ground out etc. if thats not it take some carb cleaner and spary around your intake and listen for changes in the running for a vacum leak. hope this helps.

Intermitent rough idle & slight miss at low speeds


Trying to solve same problem on my 1994 ford Taurus. So as I see it just need to rethink what we did wrong to begin with and we could have put one of the wires on wrong (in wrong placement) or bad conection.

You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.
