No gas


replace your fuel filter, and air filter ! you mean your fuel pump turns on , correct ? how do you know this for sure ? check all fuses, and especially GROUNDS ! ground wires get overlooked , and they should'nt . without them, you got nothing !!! tune-up lately ? replace spark plugs & wires ! distributor cap & rotor . oil change lately ? do it ! spark plug wires get old, hard, and crack, causing them to short out ! check all vacuum lines, if you have a throttlebody, tighten the mounting bolts, they do get loose !

Need to know how to change plugs & plug wires on


If you have a distributor or just an ignition module with
plug wires, you not only mark them with a ball point pen,
you make a drawing of where things are

You can see the spark plugs,mark both ends of the plug wires
before you start

Draw a picture of the cylinders & look up their numbers
& write it in little circles & have the firing order

The only problem you can have is not knowing what is where,
before you start, so you can replace old or new parts where they
should go

Not firing on number 4 cylinder on 94 nissan maxima


So you have a cylinder not contributing based on
removing the plug wire & no rpm change.

Is that plug wire putting out the same voltage as the rest?

Are all the wires on the correct cylinders & dist cap locations?

Are all the injector plugs also on & in the correct places?

Does that cylinder have good leak down on a test or if your
only able to test compression,how does that compare to the others?

Sounds sort of like a mechanical issue & not a very bright outlook
there, if that is the case

Miss fire 1 and 5 changed wires and plugs


Probably coil pack. Follow spark plug wire from spark plug to where it plugs in, that is your coil pack.Some are seperatable. Depending on motor size you may have coil over plug. You said wires not (cop) coil over plug boots.If it is coil over plug it is just a boot you changed in that case the coils plug into boots & on plug & an electrical connector. They are seperate for each cylinder.

Hello Need help on a 2004 Ford Explorer. Having problems with Ford explorer rough ideal & missing. Changed plugs & wiring. Used Gas treatment. Change fuel filter & air filter also.


You have an air leak at the intake. Spray a bit of starting fluid around the intake. The engine will respond when you hit the spot. Replace the gaskets as required.

CHANGED SPARK PLUGS NOW HESITATING & RUNS


chances are an ignition wire was damaged when you tugged on it to remove it from the old plug .. the ignition cables have a high resistance wire inside (not a solid wire) this is not hard to damage .. check to make sure each wire is properly seated on the plug .. its easy to not get it on all the way since you cant see it ..

I'd go with the new wires & cap. make sure you add dielectric grease to wires on each end too before snapping them in/on.
