Ignition coil trouble 05 Ford five hundred sel it's missing while idling and running rough changed plugs and boots wondering if ignition coil are bad and how do I check them


With the motor running and the hood open, try pulling a plug wire off one at a time. When you notice no change or stumble in the motor after pulling a wire off, then that would be the cylinder where your problem is.

How come while driving my transmission sometime jerks?


interesting, ricky ? could b anything. fuel filter needs changed, the fuel we use today is garbage, ethanol is bad for our older engines. add some of that new dirt to tank, something360. ??? also, maybe a wire connection is loose., or bad spark plug wires? something is missing its continuity , making the engine miss, not your transmission, u hope ? start with checking your battery conn., clean, tight, etc., replace plug wires, change spark plugs, maybe ? but your plug wires could b the problem. ??? think about it, engine starts ok, its when its running does the problem come up. you have fuel, you need spark, you also need clean air .......... change air filter....... pcv valve......egr valve ?? could b sticking ......you treat yourself good, yes? treat your engine good...whens last time the transmission fluid and filter was changed ??? that could also cause a miss, a surge......yes? i hope this helps you ricky, just use common sence, it always serves me well, good luck, ken

Random misfire


If you replaced the plugs and wires you should know the engine has a distributor cap. The coil is in the bottom of the distributor.
Keep in mind it could be an injector instead of an ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on and have you checked for trouble codes ?

Changed plugs, plug wires, distributor, and rotor. Grounded neg wire for battery. Engine still missing.Not a fuel injection miss, but a miss you'd associate with plugs etc.


Did you check the ignition timing ? It should be for manual transmission 20+/- 2 deg BTDC

automatic transmission 20+/- deg BTDC

FYI---One time i dropped a new plug before i put it in and did not realize that the gap have closed up and started a bad miss..make sure all plugs are gaped correctly....could be something else but you can start here...Hope this helped ?

If water got on plugs etc , the car may miss twice then the light will come on. You may not notice the miss. Put a code reader on and see what comes up. Once the water is gone everything shold go back to normal.

Check engine light blinks


Ok, i would ave the ignition coil pack tested for its operational valve asap if possible. this is either an ignition coil pack issue or, a bad ECM. the ECM controls the ignition timing in this vehicle so, the problem will be there if the crank shaft sensor and cam sensors are ok.

I would pull the trouble codes asap as well. this will help diagnosis this issue correctly. this can be done at a local auto zone or a local mechanics shop as well.

Have fault code P0302 on 2001 VW Beetle. No it is Cylinder 2 misfire. What is likely cause, bad spark plug, wire, or Electronic ignition box?


this car has what is called coil over ignition which means no plug wires or cap so if it is missing swap coil from cyl 2 and any other cyl then clear code and rerun car till light comes back on then check code if it is still cyl 2 missfire then replace that plug if code changes to the cylinder that 2's coil was on then replace that coil <that car does have a recall for coils> if car is not missing and you have that code most likely isnt an ignition problem but will have a small vaccume leak so check the small hoses for leaks. very common for fuel preasure regulater vaccume hose to brake from age
