Cylinder replacement ????? this could refer to the cylinder liners, but you would only do this for a diesel engine if at all......as long as the cylinder head is serviced (machined and pressure tested), and all top engine seals are replaced with new ones, you should not have any further issues.......make sure a compressioin test both wet and dry are carried out to ensure that the head is the only problem

One of the gaskets has blown at a point where the a water jacket is blowning into the cylinders but not mixing with an oil jacket on the heads. Try to use some Bars Leak and see if you can get it to seal and if not, their are also aluminum shavings mixed with sealer for some of the worse problems. If it seals you will then know that it will need a gasket replacement at some point

Your first mistake is thinking that the only thing that can cause a misfire is a coil or spark plug. Misfires can be caused by MANY things, including faulty fuel injectors, injector control circuits, blown head gaskets, vacuum leaks, burned valves, broken valve springs, low compression due to cylinder damage, worn piston rings, damaged or worn camshafts, etc..

I would recommend getting this problem properly diagnosed by a professional. Failure to fix misfire codes promptly can cause severe engine damage and destroy high-dollar parts like oxygen Sensors, catalytic converters, engine blocks and cylinder heads.

1997 2,4 sunfire cylinders 2 3 misfire. coil has been replaced, plugs & fuel pressure are good, and cad converter has been dropped..was melted almost shut but now fixed. what do i check now?


I would suspect a head gasket or head problem.. the catalytic converter being plugged causes heat build up in the engine and overheating in the engine can cause failure of the head hasket or head itself. The reason your cylinders are misfiring could be water leaking from a water port in the head and into the cylinder which would cause the cylinder not to fire..there might be some steamy vapor coming coming out of the exhaust if that is happening

When the coolant hose broke,did the engine overheat?If so,it seems through your description that the head gasket has blown.The most common cause of water/coolant in the cylinder is a blown head gasket.It will need to be replaced.Take the vehicle to your mechanic and explain to them what happened .This helps them to fix the problem, knowing what may need to be done and what to look for.Hope this helps.

Have a 2003 Taurus, 3.0 engine that has a misfire on #2 cylinder. Replaced all spark plugs, wires, coil, replaced the fuel injectors, crank sensor, cam sensor, still have a misfire on #2 cylinder. It has...


Sound like an air / vacuum leak to me.
Re-check for an air leak on #2 cylinder inlet manifold.
Use a propane torch (unlit, of course) to flood propane gas around inlet manifold/head flange & gasket area.
If there is any change in idle speed during this test you have a vacuum leak.
