Hesitating miss running engine


Hi, I would be replacing distributor cap, and rotar button, they can look fine, but if its is old as u say, It may have hair line fractures naked to the eye, and corrosion builds up on the contact points in the cap, and only\'\' time\'\' your engine with carbon lead connected to number one cyclinder. spark plug lead ( im sure you know this) . not sure what ur friend is on about. that\'s where I would start, also, at night, in the very dark, fire up the engine & look for sparks jumping . around leads & dizzy area, also try spraying a hair sray or bug repellent around the carby & all other vacume lines, if engine revs up, you have another vacume leak, Hope these tips help. Good luck with it all. Cheers Kipper

Hello, I got the silent shaft, timed with the cam, crank and oil pump, thank you for the help with comments. now that it is runnin, it runs rougher then before i replaced the water pump and timing belts...


The only way to tell if you have a ring or valve problem is to do the compression test as it the best place to start . Once you have eliminated the compression from the equation then you can concentrate on why the cylinder is getting more fuel than the others. I would be checking for vacuum leaks for the rough running as an incorrect fuel / air ratio will cause missing. We cannot fix everything but we endeavour to point you in the right direction so that you can fix it.

Well the code means the computer detected a drop in RPM for that cylinder. The problem can be spark, fuel, or compression. If you think the cylinder is getting spark, the other two causes would need to be checked.

1998 SATURN 4 DOOR DOHC JUST REPLACED THE HEAD GASKET MYSELF WHICH WENT FINE. BOUGHT NEW SPARK PLUGS AND I HAVE THE CORRECT FIRING ORDER BUT FOR SOME REASON 2 OF THE SPARK PLUGS ARE NOT GIVING ENOUGH


Are you saying the engine will not crank, or not start ?
If you think two of the cylinders are not getting spark, something may have happened to the coil pack or the crank-cam sensors.
If all 4 plug wires are getting spark, two of them may be on the wrong cylinders. The firing order is not always the same as the plug wire layout.

it most likely is the coil, but recheck the spark plugs and spark plug wires just in case one of the new wires are touching a hot exhaust manifold..

Rewired ford taurus spark plugs and when turns on it jumps what could i have done wrong?


If you replaced the distributor cap then there is a high possibility that you put the wires in the wrong firing order on cap.

If all you did was replaced the plugs, then I would pull each one out and recheck the Gap sizes with a feeler gauge. Also check to see if the spark/coil plug wires are touching metal or each other, which can cause the spark to arc out of the wire and never get to the spark plug. If I suspect an arc and do not see a physical problem, I wait until nighttime and look under the hood while engine is running...they stick out like a sore thumb. Also make sure that you did not put the wrong plugwire to the wrong spark plug.

When you change your plugs, you should also replace wires, cap and rotor.

Vacuum line or spark plugs?


If the vac. line went to the distributer cap you need to get a new 1 take off the line and take it to the auto parts store and get a new 1. What that vac. line does is adjust the timing when you give the car gas. Did he make shur to gap the plugs to the wright gap? If he did and you put a new vac. line on check all of the vac. line if they have cracks change them. If the still runs ruff he might have moved the distributer, or he might have got the wires wrong if he changed the spark plug wires. Change the vac. lines first they are cheap.
