Lots of people have. Check your compression, make sure the plug is firing, make sure the injector is pulsing.

I have a 1996 GMC Jimmy that was iddling very rough and code said cylinder 2 misfire check engine light was on solid. Replaced all plugs, wires, cap and fuel filter 1st of March 2013. It ran better for a...


Lets start at the beginning. Did anyone check fuel pressure before and after replacing the pump ?
Has anyone checked the fuel pressure regulator and the injector spider ? The 4.3w engine uses a spider with one injector that supplies all 6 cylinders. And it runs at 65psi or more.

5.3 liter Chevy engine #1 Cylinder not firing at idle


My opinion...

Year? Miles?

There's no way I'd dive into a "HEAD GASKET"
diagnosis without pressure testing the cooling
system and (wet/dry) COMPRESSION testing
the whole engine...

Even if it is a "HEAD GASKET"... the entire engine
might be ready for a REFRESH... and tossing a new
Head gasket into a TIRED ENGINE not insubstantial
(a lot of wasted time & money)...

Come back with some compression numbers...

but don't bother with any of this if your engine oil has water in it.

My 1999 lincoln is running rough and it says that number 6 is miss firing. where is number 6?


You should have the 4.6 Liter engine. The engine is placed such that the cylinder bank closest to the front of the vehicle contains the #6 cylinder. The #6 cylinder is second from the left.

Loud bang, then drop in power, now car running rough!


Get a compression tester and find out if you blew a cylinder. You'll need to test all cylinders. Your most likely running on 7 cylinders instead of 8 or 5 instead of 6 if you have the V-6.

I have a 2000 buick lasabre that has been running very rough, my son put computer on and it said bad o2 sensor, he replaced sensor, and it is still running rough, but the computer now says cylinder 6...


plugs and or wires.
for some reason the spark is jumping out of the wire or plug.
the plug insulater may have a crack in it.
also use a carb spray to clean out the throttle body at the throttle plate.
all the black carbon will build up around the throttle plate and restrick airflow at an idle position.

hope this helps
thank you

I have a 1993 jaguar sov, 4.0 strait 6 cylinder, the oil gauge drops down to nothing and the car starts running rough, is the oil pump internal or external, and how big of a job is it to fix?


Before you tear into the engine remove the oil pressure sender and install a hand held mechanical gauge and check the pressure. The sending unit coud be bad. As far as the rough running.. when was your last tune up?? The gauge could also drop to zero due to insufficient RPM's because of the rough running. Does it have any knocks when the pressure is at zero??

Two dead cylinders no spark on 1 nor 6 cylinders


Based on your readings, the fuel trim of -33 shows that it is running rich on that bank. Disconnect the coil on number one cylinder. With a 12 volt test light connected to ground, probe one of the two wires (engine running). One wire should be hot all the time, then connect the test light to a positive source (battery B+) and probe the other wire. The other sould be flashing on and off while running. The PCM provides ground to the circuit to fire the coils. If you don't have a pulsing light then the PCM circuit is faulty, if no constant power than the coil power source is in question. Don't attempt to fire the coil for testing without a load attached (spark plug) this burns out the driver in the PCM. Check continuity of the driver wire from PCM to the coil, if it is good and the other wire has power then the driver in the PCM is bad and a new PCM is what it will need. I hope this helps.

Engine lite came on , cylinder 4 is misfiring , sputters and runs really rough until you get over 30-35 mil/ph, we replaced plugs and wires. still doing it ,,,fuel filter maybe ,, where is it located


Is it a 4 or 6 cylinder? 4 cylinders were bad about cracked heads and leaking fuel injectors. Check compression of that cylinder and adjacent. Should be withing 10-15 PSI of each other. Less than 125 PSI is not good either.
