First pull the plugs and look to see if they are really nasty if so replace them also check the wires for damnage of dark spots.i dont know when the last time your car has hade a tune up dont more then likely its a plug probelm but to check to see which cyl it is thats having the misfire try this one by one take the injector plug off of the injector engine running if the engine blogs down whhen you take the plug off then that cyl is good put the plug back on and go to the next one the one that make little your no change in the engine is the one you need to replace.(this is how i check when i dont have my scanner with me.)

Distributor not firing on a 92 tercel


Don''t know who or how this check was done but should compare resistance between terminals on coil with another small difference was my problem 1991 tercel you can also hook 12v batt. pos. to +term.on coil with sparkplug and wire conn. directly to coil grounding outside of plug to neg.term. of batt. now connect wire to -on coil and momentarily touch to batt. - you should get spark across gap of plug .This will determine for yourself if coil is indeed good or bad. I was very surprised another coil from junkyard cured problem!!!

MISFIRE ON CYLINDER 4 AND 6 WITH AN ENGINE LIGHT ON


Check the coil packs on the plug if equipped with that type, or the coil packs at the end of the spark plug wires, if so equipped.

Also, check that the fuel injectors are firing on all 8 cylinders.

Definitely, check out what other codes are stored in the computer besides a missing condition.

I have a 1999 Expedition that had a miss on a cylinder, and it turned out to be a bad coil pack. You have 2 cylinders missing, so I would check each cylinder for good spark, or replace the coil packs as necessary to see if that resolves the problem.

Good luck on this repair.

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherkee 4.0 with miss fire after water p


you will need to check the codes and see exactly what cylinder is misfiring, this maybe caused due to a vacuum leak or bad wires or if it has a coil then a bad coil boot,this may not have anything to do with the waterpump job, or might,if you could pinpoint which cylinder it was, then this would help pin point the problem,check around for vacuum leaks, or any connections left loose ,start with that,

I have an 2002 buick century that has a iginition miss. We have changed the spark plugs, iginition wires, coil pack. It first came back with a miss fire number 2 cyclinder. The coil pack was changed. Now...


double check plug wires to be sure they go to the right cylinders. After that i would check fuel injectors
You need a listening device and listen for metallic clicking sound. Bad injectors will be silent and they do cause the same miss

My nephew changed one of the coil packs on a 97 camaro now their are 2 that say 1/4 and the 3/6 is missing. where can Ifind a picture of what order they should be in? it is a 3.8 and i have a chilton...


Use a Haynes repair manual, they have better pictures than Chilton and show 2 different 3.8 for 1997, also check to make sure plug wires are not on touching exhaust manifold, that happened to mine once and I had mutiple cylinder misfire trouble code. Most libraries have hanes manuals on shelf if you don't want to spend the extra money right now.

yes it is the ignition coils . po304 is a miss fire on #4 cylinder.wires and plugs should fix the problem unless ignition coil is not firing. there are 2 coils they run 1&4 2 &3 cylinders.
