I took spark plugs out of 2001 Ford Ranger 3.0L to place plug fowlers in. Spark plug will fit in fowlers, however; fowlers will not fit in engine. Placed plugs back in engine and now will not start.


Sounds like that car is the proverbial POS. Did you check for spark? - need a strong one with a car burning that much oil and the plugs getting fouled like that. Need to replace those rings!

buy a can of sea foam motor treatment at a auto parts store pour it in the gas tank with at least a half tank of gas disconnect the negative battery terminal for about 15 seconds reconnect, than start car and drive it should solve problem with hesitation if the problem comes back check for a bad injector are fouled spark plug, you should put sea foam or other brands of injector cleaner fuel conditioner in your gas every other fill up ethanol gas fouls plugs and causes injectors to clog because of the carbon that it forms on your pistons valves and intake runners, sea foam will cure this problem

My 2000 pathfinder is rough starting intermittantly and showing code P0304 cylinder #4 misfire. Had new plugs & wires replaced 6 months ago. what could be causing misfire?


Could be several things, such as leaky fuel injector flooding cylinder after shutdown, or oil fouling plug due to bad valve guide seal of broken piston ring. Install brand new plug, run about 20 miles, let engine get cold overnight, remove plug to red is it wet with gas or oil sooty.

2 months ago i replaced all the spark plugs and coil packs on my 2003 mazda 6. yesterday my car started acting the same way as when i needed these things replaced and today the check engine light went on...


I don't know how many miles you have on your car, but it is possible that you may have a spark plug being fouled out either with oil or coolant. I had a Protege with 120k and it burned more oil than gas. Change #3 plug and get a good look at the plug you remove. Look for signs of contamination.

exposure to heat, weather,salt in winter and water make them more susceptible to failure I would change them knowing that my others failed

Bad idle


It's probably not the throttle position sensor, but rather the wiring that goes to the sensor. Also your plugs or plug should not be black unless it is oil fouled or carbon fouled. Carbon fouled would indicate an over rich mixture problem. Wet and black would indicate oil fouling. You need to check the oxygen sensor also. A false indication from it would could cause a rich fuel condition. Start with the wiring to the TPS switch. Last but not least check your map sensor and the vacuum hose running to it. All these items contribute to the overall fuel delivery system and how it functions.

Spark plugs fouling quickly


you can use some plastic pliers and pull one wire off the plug at a time and see if the rpm's change.

Suzuki alto engine problem?


Try this first before having the engine rebuilt.

Go buy a bottle of Lucas engine treatment and add it to the oil, if in a couple hours of driving you do not gain more power, the engine is not running better Ect. then yes you need to have it rebuilt.

But try this first, this stuff im sending you to get is the leading engine treatment in the world.

I have actually cured engine knocks permantly with htis stuff.
