Check and make sure your distributor cap and rotor are not corroded and gunked up. If a spark plug is ever dropped, the center electrode could be cracked leading to a improperly firing spark plug (causing a misfire). parts get dropped during shipping all the time.

good luck!

Did you replace the spark plugs with the same brand recommended by ? Might also what to go over all the wiring harnesses, you disconnected when replacing the exhaust. Might of pinched a wire.

Check engine light on engine acts as if missing new plugs wires and #5 spark pack missing again 6cyl 4x4 3.4 185000 miles


was it running this way before you changed the plugs? just a shot in the dark here possibly a defective spark plug, rare but not impossible. if it was running fine before changing them. Other wise I would take it to autozone and pull codes if it is P0350 #5 misfire we would use the process fuel, fire and compression. is there any engine coolant around any cylinders? Have you checked the coil packs? could be a bad coil pack. if no evidence of fluid around them proceeded to check for spark, fuel then compression. post back results or new post with more deductions. iis it no spark no fuel or bad compression.

check the connection of all of the spark plug wires to the plugs, you may have put a wrong one on, when cleaning the gas tank as well it can dislodge a lot of dirt, cleaning injectors and a new fuel filter could solve the issue as well

Fuel cutting off/rough idling/O/D light blinks/shifting gears


What kind of spark plugs did you put in it? The 4.0 litre engines in these trucks require PLATINUM spark plugs. If you put the wrong ones ( regular copper) it will miss fire and run like a bag of garbage. I had a similar problem with mine, the previous owners said "oh we changed the plugs and wires". They also changed the ignition coil not long before I took delivery. So, truck still ran like **** they said they even had to reset the inertia switch under the passenger side kick panel, everyone thought it was a fuel problem. I decided to pull one plug and volia..Wrong plugs. That also explains why they had to change the ignition coil. Hope this helps.

Burb is missing. put new fuel filter in plugs,wires.may be water


If one cylinder is missing at idle, it would be useful to know which one. Pulling the plug wires one at a time with insulated pliers would tell us if one does not cause a change.
It could be a fouled plug.
You could switch plugs with another, to verify.

If not spark, could be fuel.
If throttle body, then not likely.
If individual injectors, then pull whole rail off and see if all injectors fire, spray pattern like cone, and none dribbling.

If none of above, then consider intake leak, collapsed lifter, valve adj, etc.

'83 Monte Carlo - Miss fire at idle/accel./driving


You can have car put on scope and it wll show any irregularities in the ignition system. It can also be dowithout any equipment. First, loosing ALL 8 spark plug wires, Now place the spark plug wires loosly back on, just secure enough to secure. You might need 2 people. Being the miss is more consistant in gear, APPLY THE EMERGENCY BRAKE , put trans into drive and raise rpm's till miss is obvious. Remove ONE plug wire at a time, TILL THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN MISS. Thats the cylinder missing. Start with the spark plug, inspect, work back to wires and cap. An EXTREME result will be NO COMPRESSION.

Engine seems to be missing


it sounds right, it is called a light load miss. it occurs mostly at 45-50 mph on slight incline and it feels like a bucking or hesitation. It commonly ocurs when there is carbon tracking on a spark plug porcelin (sp) . note . if the porcelin has carbon tracking so does the plug wire boot. the spark will travel through the carbon track in teh boot after plug replacement causing premature failure of the plug. it is a good idea to replace plugs and wires if this is the cause of your miss.
