Since you are guessing the next most common problem is spark plug wires

DETERMIN IF YOUR PROBLEM IS ONE OF THE FOLLOWING BEFORE CHANGING ANYTHING .1.ELECTRICAL
2.FUEL RELATED OR 3. MECHANICAL.

PERORM A COMPRESSION CHECK TO ENSURE THE COMPRESSION IS GOOD .IF THE COMPRESSION IS IN ALL CYLINDERS PROCEED TO CHECK FUEL SYSTEM .REMOVE THE FUEL INJECTORS AND EXAMIN THE INJECTOR TIP FOR CARBON DEPSITS .CHECH FUEL SPRAY PATTERN ,ENSURE INJECTORS ARE ACTUALLY SPRAYING . THEN PROCEED TO EXAMIN THA SPARK PLUGS .LOOK FOR DISCOLOURATION OF SPARK PLUG ELECTRODES OR CARBON DEPOSITS. IN DIAGNOSING PROBLEMS ONE HAS TO SYSTEMATIC OR ELSE YOU WOULD BE WASTING MONEY AND TIME PURCHASING AND REPLACING COMPONENTS WHICH ARE NOT DEFECTIVE . GOOD LUCK .

I have a 1996 nissan sunny fuel injected ... i have changed the plugs, injector rail, distributer, throttle body, and my engine is still misfiring can some one advise me please..


inspect the wiring for loose connections or bad wiring.

try adjusting first the distributor by turning it. It should adjust the timing. Other than that inspect the timing on the timing chain or the chain may have developed a slack.

1992 Nissan Sentra only 2 cylenders working


I'm hoping that you also replaced the ignition rotor, it wears 4 times more than the cap. This can also be related to a problem with your distributor. Noting that this is a 92 model, and that you have extremely high mileage, the distributor shaft bearing may be allowing the rotor to make contact sometimes, but not all of the time due to the clearance difference as it rotates off center a bit.

This is the other reason to replace the Ignition rotor more often than the cap. New rotors extend to be closer to the dist. cap contacts, allowing the spark more ability to jump over to the post & down the wire to the plug.

Cheking the fuel injectors: If you remove the retainer on each injectors electrical connector, as the vehicle is running you can pull one at a time off just long enough to notice a change in performance. NO change, then either the injector is bad, or no spark is getting to the cyliinder. Each time you pull a connector off, you're removing 25% of the power available to a 4 cylinder engine and that should be easily noticeable. If it is an injector, it would need to be removed probably to clean properly but you can remove your fuel filter, fill it about 1/2 the way up with regular Gumout or STP fuel injector cleaner & reinstall. The car may sputter a minute or two but this will provide a concentrated injector cleaning, if they are opening & working at all.

good luck.

It is missing when i first start it and check


Hi:
It seems that your intermittent problem could be a cheap fix,and you can try a few things that might fix or eliminate the problem. Since the code pointed to the #1 cylinder misfire, You could change out your spark plugs and spark plug wires as a possible cause. If it doesn't fix it, they were 5-6 years old, and a new set isn't a bad investment. If the problem persists, then you are looking at a ignition coil, coil pack, distributor cap/ rotor,depending on your particular engine. Often if you have an ignition module failing, it will affect all cylinders misfiring, often randomly , so once you change your plugs and wires, have someone clear the check engine light, so if it comes back on ,you can check to see what the new code problem is...I hope you get a cheap fix!

Sounds like misfire. Change spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor , fuel and air filters. Check for oil in spark plug holes. if oil found change valve cover gasket spark plug orings. they can leak oil into spark plug holes and cause misfire.
