Sound like you need a minor ignition tune-up. I will take an educated guess and say that if you were to have the codes read from the ECM (engine control module) they would be P0300 to P0306 which would mean you have an engine misfire. You can go to one of your local consumer automotive parts houses and have the codes read for no charge (because they want to sell you some parts) and go from there. Sounds like a set of ignition plugs and ignition wires may fix your problem. Pay close attention to the firing order of the ignition wires before you remove them if you do it yourself. Firing order on top of ignition coil pack. Good luck

00linc LS v8 has a little missing at times . not noticeable on overnight start up ,after driving for a while you can feel it when accelerating at times then smooth out an run like ck eng lite

If the is misfiring then the check engine light will blink and a code will be set for the fault, so if you have no light you do not have a misfire it has to be something else going on, have you had the fault codes read yet? Do that, any Autozone will read them for free, just ask for a OBD2 fault code test.

2000 nissan frontier, started missing engine light came on so we replaced plugs and wires and reset light runs better but still has a little miss... any other suggestions

misfire, has many cause, i have 50 reason list. for get that.
1: bad engine compression, or other major engine issues. mech.
2:bad spark
3: bad fueling. (too much or too little)

it only takes a few tests to find which it is, and in that order.
above assumes, 13.3 to 14.7v at the EFI system at all times running.
and EGR is not leaking.
what does engine light mean.
are you saying the CEL , check (service) engine light glows running? if yes ? why not scan it and report all DTC codes present. P0300 is random misfire. and P0301 is #1 cyl misfire.
as 2 examples.

Loss of power in acceleration

I would check the fuel pressure first.
If the engine was miss-firing the check engine light should be on.

Cheak engine soon light keeps flashing

Is the car missing or not running quite right, have a little more wiggle to it? Flashing check engine light is usually indications of a cylinder misfiring which could be caused by a few different things.

Dodge 2500 it seems backfire and misses.

Some of the things that I would consider are a plugged PCV valve, a vacuum leak, a cracked distributor cap, or a faulty voltage regulator. I would also check the condition of the ignition coil. And even though the check engine light is not on, I would have the vehicle scanned to see if any fault code(s) are stored in the computer. (Never trust a light to not be out)Hope this helped and good luck.

Engine dies at random...Highway and idle.

do not think vacuum hose is teh issue. When ws last time you replaced fuel and air filter? Couls also be failing fuel pump, so need to check output pressure. If check engine light comes on may be in air polution control system. Need to pull code and see what circuit is causing the fault code. Sometimes an auto zone will read code for free.

Service ing light on

hello mariojimenez, you could have 1 of several components causing the misfiring and check engine light to come on. I would recommend getting the computer scanned to find out what fault code you have. A fault code would be even more helpful to narrow down the root cause.

Check engine light stays on

Make sure the gas cap is there and is fully tightened (it will click), a loss or missing cap will turn the check eng light on.
