Question about 1999 Cadillac Escalade

1999 cadillac escalade missfiring cylinder #6

I did a tuneup a month ago. New plugs, wires, distributer, oil change, new fuel pump and filter, new o2 sensors (all 4). After I installed everything and drove the truck for a little bit, I noticed that the engine started to missfire. I checked the wires and noticed that I installed them in incorrect order. So i fixed it and plugged them in the right cylinders but i noticed that it's still missfiring on cylinder #6. I even changed the spark plug and wires to a new one. I can't find any vaccuum leaks. Any answers? I've had enough with this truck.

1999 malibu 3.1 clyd 5 missfire and now random missfire oil light is on lfters very noise runs rough


Have you confirmed there is no oil pressure and the oil level is full on the dipstick?

The oil pump is turned by the oil pump drive located under the throttle body. The oil pump drive is run of from the cam shaft. It is not uncommon for the camshafts to break on these engines.

It may not be a bad idea to pull the front valve cover and turn the engine over by hand to see if all the rockers are moving.

My 1999 suburban is missfiring on cylinder one, changed new plug, cap & rotor, wires


You seem to have covered almost everything electrical. That leaves mechanical. Either valves sticking, frozen, or spring, cam broken. Fuel line or injector to that cylinder is the only other item I can think of. Let me know how it works for you.

I have a 2000 gmc sierra 5.3 with a number 6 cylinder missfire. things i have done so far: 1. compression test on number 6 tested fine,as well as the rest of the cylinders 2. leak down test. Held...


I would check the valves for number 6. If one or both are burned, stuck or out of adjustment it would cause your problem. If a cam lobe for that cylinder is burned or badly worn it could be the culprit.

1999 F250 4x4 Rough idle, miss when warm. No CEL.


I know this will sound Stupid But, Change the Cap Cap. If the Seal is Bad on the Cap it will allow air Into the Fuel tank and Cause your Rough Idle.

My 1999 Cadillac Escalade has been sitting for about a year and it wont start and the battery is new what do i do?


Hi!
From your brief description I presume you are able to crank the engine?
If all o.k. then I would be looking at fuel? if Petrol which I think possibly is maybe it has gone stale? You say 12 months if only a small amount of fuel in tank then you may get away with diluting the old with fresh, however it might not run too sweet until old fuel spent.
If Diesel possible Fuel filter change and check for Air locks.

try getting a new fuel pump since you already changed the filter, take it in to Checker or Auto Zone and have them test your battery for free, if you have any mechanic buddies with a compression tester, have them test your compression, as you may be having a missfire in one of your cylinders. Also if none of this works, try getting new fuel injectors as well.

Hope this helps :)
