Tip

How to Diagnose Your Engines Skip


Sometimes it's easy to tell if your engines got a skip. Other times its not so evident that a skip is what's causing your engine problems. Even when your know its a skip, deciding on which cylinder is the problem. This how to makes finding that problematic skip easy as pie.
Instructions
Things You'll Need:
infrared thermometer
Step 1
First thing you need to do is get yourself a infrared thermometer. Sounds fancy but they are not all that expensive, you can find them for under 50 dollars. These things are handy for so many things, trust me you will wonder how you ever got along without one.

Step 2
Now you'll be putting the laser of the thermometer on the exhaust headers where they meet up to the head so make sure you have a line of site to all of your header pipe ends. This works on manifolds as well but not as good. Its still the easiest way to find a skip either way.

Step 3
Now just locate the skip. To do that start the engine and quickly go under the hood with your infrared thermometer. Check each cylinder temperature, the cylinder with the skip will be cooler than the others around it. This works great because it will show you if you have a dead skip or just a cylinder that is running a little cold, all in a matter of mins. Information like this is very valuable for fine tuning and getting the most out of your engine.

My 96 Lumina, 3.1L has 94,000 miles and today during normal driving the service engine soon light came on and at idle the engine seems to be skipping or missing


If you know the plugs are fine then an ignition wire or a coil will cause the same symptom . If you had a code reader it would show you which cylinder is causing the miss. Beyond that a compresion test is needed.

My sons 03 accent with 33k and has a severe idle issue. He said he inadvertently let out the clutch while rolling forward down a hill while ****** was in reverse. He heard a very loud pop and now the idle...


I have no idea what a ******* is so I can;t say its not that. (this darn site and the words that get edited!)
I wonder if the transmission being in reverse (rolling forward I assume) caused the engine to want to rotate backwards or put force on it in that way causing the timing belt to skip a tooth or two.
Might not hurt to check into that.

Engine code: Misfire cylinder 1. Replaced plugs


There should be no built up fuel or oil in cylinder. The fuel will be burned off immediately, and there should have been very little unless you have a leaking injector. The only way oil will enter the cylinder is if you have a mechanical failure like worn rings or leaking valve seals.If after replacing the plugs and wires did not correct all or the skip after the first start up and road test then you have another issue causing the skip
