It is not unlikely a plug wire got put back on on the wrong plug. These cars will still run with a few plugs wrong.

Could be spark or fuel.
Weak or worn spark plugs, weak coil, dirty injector, and so on.

Change spark plugs on a 1999 6.8ltr V-10 with aluminum heads without stripping threads?


Of course, if they won't come out cold warm the engine a little but not too much. When you install them use a little Champion spark plug lube or sensor safe anti seize compound OR take it to someone who has the required expertise. If they are already seized from previous improper installation you will have trouble.

My 94 Toyota Camry 4 cyl is running really rough and stalling out once the engine warms up


Get rid of cold air intake and re install stock also sounds like your mass air flow unit is going out or your cars ecm isnt operating properly check air filter make sure its not clogged up then check all your vacuum hoses for cracks,dry rot or kinks making sure none are pinched causing vacuum to not respond.ok after this check the fumes from exhaust for color but it could also be catalytic converter even though it says air temp.when this problem occurs it can be number of things spray electric cleaner on wires as well and check for loose wires now take your time going over these things to be sure you accurately inspect this

Hard starting, rough idle when cold, then smooth running when warm


Need year/make/model/mileage of vehicle to provide a more specific set of troubleshooting steps.

When was the last tune up? Hard starts when cold are usually caused by fouled spark plugs, worn plug wires, or weak ignition coils. Fuel systems are not as effected by temperature changes as the ignition components.

2001 Pontiac Montana - what is a misfire #5?


Without your actual trouble code, I am assuming that you are have a misfire on cylinder # 5. The computer cannot really tell what is causing the misfire only that cyl 5 is not putting out full power. If it misfires when cold then smooths out as it warms up, I would say it is probably an injector that is sticky, as it warms up it starts working properly.
