    The most common misfire causes on the cars I've worked on have been: Spark plugs Spark plug wires Ignition coil Fuel injector Wiring to fuel injector Timing Belt OR CHAIN Vacuum leak or stuck open EGR Contaminated fuel or bad fuel pump Weak compression due to mechanical engine problems like burned valves or scored cylinders Blown head gasket

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.

#1 and #4 are not firing I changed the coil pack and still no change any ideas


You said you changed the coil pack and the wires but didn't mention the plugs. Try moving one of the plugs to a different cylinder and see if the miss follows it. It could also be the ignition module. (the thing the coil packs mount to.)

remove the plug from the #1 cylinder, and install it into the #2 cylinder , and put plug from # 2 clyinder in to #1 plug hole, connect plug wires, and start up vehichle, and if computer shows misfire on # 2 cylinder , then you have a bad plug, possibly porcelin insulator could have a hair line crack in it, hope that this information has helped you.

My husband did a tune up on my car yesterday and now it wont start it will turn over like it wants to start but it wont he said that its miss firing we have bought 3 new coil packs and still will not start...


If your car is miss firing and your husband changed the coil packs,the wires leading from coil packs to sparkplugs must have got crossed.This will change car timing which will result in the car miss firing.He needs to go over wiring and correct problem for car to run right.You can go online to autozone.com and type in Info about car to get the correct wiring layout.Your problem isnt the new plugs n wires.Its the wiring layout.

I have a miss fire


Recheck the firing order; 1-6-5-4-3-2

On the distributor passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6-coil
On the distributor drivers side radiator to fire wall. 3-1-5

Cylinder passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6
Cylinder drivers side radiator to fire wall. 1-3-5

Good luck and also check the distributor cap again for proper seating.

Miss fire in cylinder 1 and 4


Problem could be as simple as a vacuum leak around either of those cylinders. A vacuum leak can create a lean fuel mixure condition resulting in a miss fire. One thing to rememeber is that depending on the style of ignition in use. The opposing cylinder's spark plug and wires act as the return path for the unused voltage from the coils firing which is why you are having seemingly unrelated misfires. If either has a problem then the symptoms are shown in both cylinders.
