Cylinder misfire still shows after spark plugs have been changed

We see this alot on all makes and models.
The code for a cylinder miss is actually telling you the cylinder did not produce power.
The cause could be spark, but also fuel or compression.

Random missfire

I hope you used AC Delco plugs. Make sure the spark plug gaps are correct. Also, make sure you torque the spark plugs to manufacturer's specification. This would be a good start. Scott

Car is missing and shakes alot.

Check if the car's computer is firing each and every fuel injector by listening to each injector when the car is running, or using a noid light attached to the harness, at each injector site.. Maybe try a tune up that changes the spark plugs, wires, and air filter as part of normal maintenance.

I found a spark plug with oil on it not sure because only one of them had oil on it .........i think its cuz a lil oil spill next to it or something like that.....if you can give me some...

The end that is IN the combustion chamber.....does it look like the others.
Same color?
Same build up of deposits?
Don't worry about it.

You may need to change the valve cover gaskets at some point if it's just external oil on the spark plug body.

1990 Mercedes 190e ignition system miss firing after much work

OVP relay, coil and wires usually are the culprit. If not then it gets spendy. EZL is alot and may be an issue. EHA / EGR tube gets clogged also which comes off the exhaust.
