What the plug fouled? Have you replaced the wire? The coil would be next, but they can check a coil at a place like Autozone.

Was there a Check Engine light? When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

Hello mikew564.The first diagnosis was number 2 or 3 cylinder not firing. Once you changed the coil, the check engine light went off. When the light came back on again, did you get it diagnosed again to find out if the problem was the same?... 2 or 3 cylinder not firing????

First of all, there is NO extra wire/ground on the coil/ignition wiring (see images below). The spark plugs and ignition plug wiring can be checked for arcing, corrosion, resistance and can be checked for cracks in the insulators or worn electrodes (and spark gap) by a competent mechanic.
If you are having the same issue (2 - 3 misfire), there are several techniques for eliminating the plug wires or spark plugs. Spray water on the plug wires to see if they are arcing. Swap plugs from cylinders 2 & 3 with cylinders 1 & 4. If you still have a 2-3 misfire, check/inspect/examine the coil connector pins & coil harness to the coil(s) themselves.

clear the codes run engine and see what codes come back up egr valve that could just need a clean, ignition coil and module that could be just because of the egr valve, misfiring could be the spark plug or lead on number 3, check clean all spark plugs, check clean or replace the air filter and check for vacume leaks.

depending on the wear and mileage of your Trooper, I recommend taking it to a transmission shop for a maintanence and band adjustment, the systems you are relying on can be giving mixed values due to other variables (vacuum leaks, etc. for example) current condition could do alot of damage

Burning smell,check engine light-misfire, rough idle 96 cavalier


Sounds like there is a blown piston, to be sure have a compression test done on that #2 cylinder, if the reading is low, then you'll know.
A friend of mine had a 95 that did simular things only a little more,
it started smoking, dash lights flickered, etc. Finally, he had to get rid of it, the piston rod went through the engine block.

Engine looses power and jerks on 1500-2000rpm


Did you get a Check Engine light? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. If no light, then I'd say you have an ignition lead (spark plug wire/insulators) arcing inside one or more spark plug wells.

Gas mixed in with engine oil


sounds like you have an injector that is staying open all the time,and dumping fuel all the time and not only when its time.It is most likely the one where the plug keeps fouling.The engine light is probally showing a misfire on that cylinder also,please take it to a qualified tech to have scanned and checked
