Every time it starts raining truck starts missing and cutting out it's a 97 f 150 ford 4.6 motor.


Possibly a plug wire or cracked distributor cap. I'd take a spray bottle and while it's running (be careful not to get your body parts in danger of the fan) spray some water on the cap area. If everything seems fine, you could spray down each plug wire at a time. See if you find the culprit that way. For a vehicle so old, if you haven't done a tune up lately. It's probably a good time. Replace the distributor cap and rotor. Plugs and wires.

Just put new wires cap rotor and plugs now runs really bad?


Sometimes the rotor button contact slips off the cap when you put it on. Check that and also if you have gotten anything inside the cap causing a cross fire. Most importantly!!!! Did you happen to cross any wires? Thought I had them on right but had 2 on wrong cap contact..lol.. ran but rough. Also just thought of the plug gap. Hope this helps without me looking at it. Good Luck.

Van running like its missing


the problem is not in the plugs , wires , cap , rotor but in dirty injectors or injector controls and wires
use a quality injector cleaner for a few tanks of fuel
ECM controlled cars do not a tune up as the computer does that 60 times a minute so all you need to do is to run the fault codes and fix the faulty sensors
fault codes are being recorded all the time and only the serious engine or transmission faults put the engine light on

96 geo prizm 1.6l. Just had timing belt, water pump replaced. Allso, coil and spark plugs. Car now misses as soon as the water temp starts to come up when accelerating. I just put new plug wires on. Same...


I would definitely try the distributer cap and rotor button. It's about a 15 minute job and might solve your problem. As the car warms up the electrical components of course heat up too. As the heat goes up, resistance also increases in electrical connections, wires, etc. You could be getting enough current to pass between the rotor and the poles at low temps but, as they heat up, sufficient current for a good spark is not being passed along.

After changing the distributor cap rotor button plugs and wires due to a miss the car cranked up and ran 15 minutes then shut off. i now have no spark from the cap to the plug wires. any ideas?


It sounds like something is improperly installed or broken under the distributor cap. Take the cap back off and check for damaged/misaligned/broken parts or electrical connectors that are loose. If you see nothing obviously wrong, the igniter may have given up the ghost. This is part of the distributor assembly and you have to buy a complete distributor to get it. The igniter can be destroyed by improperly gapped plugs, a broken or damaged cap or rotor, etc.

2000 dakota with 4cyl power miss at idle new plugs wires cap


Sounds like it might be choke? Maybe a vacuum line leaking around the throttle body? Or oxygen sensor? Or throttle position sensor? Or mapp sensor?

Not positive, but I would try those in that order. I hope this helps.

96 jeep cherokee, inline 6 4.0... runs fine... after shut off (5-10 mins) acts like its chokeing out, wont start acts like its missing, no combustion (fuel injected) let sit for 20 mins, fires up fine......


Try the pick-up coil that is under the distributer cap.Remove the cap and rotor button then remove the plate that is under the rotor button.Next you need to take off the relucter wheel that is in the way so you can take out the bolts and remove the pick-up coil.

1995 Alitma ran rough and stalled


Its just fouled some plugs again. Need an overhaul. If you just put a valve job on it it will just put more stress on the rings and will need it anyway. Not much you can do except change plugs all the time!
