The rings maybe worn on the piston in cylinder 3 causing oil to to leak in to the cylinder causing spark plug to miss fire check your old plugs they will tell you whats going on in that engine

    The plugs were nice and tan when I replaced them. both problems are tied together ,one time it ran fine and the light went out. sometimes it runs fine...........

96 nissan P/U 2WD, feels like missing cyclinder should I replace EGR value?


Disable the EGR valve and test. If issue is resolved you have 3 plugged EGR ports and all the EGR flow is being routed to # 4 cylinder resulting in misfire or the EGR valve is sticking open at times though you probably would not feel a misfire except @ idle & take-off.

Check engine light on? Any codes? Missed before and after the cap was changed? Or is the cap new so you assume its good. I have had caps bad out of the box.

Nissan truck idles fine, does not acelerate well, and misses


Try to disconnect MAF sensor(mass air flow sensor) or MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure) , I don't know which one you have , (suppose to have either one) , when engine running and see if it becomes any better , if it did , then it's your problem.
Just remember one thing , if your check engine light is off now , it will be on after you disconnect any above mentioned components.
Easy to reset , disconnect battery for 30 sec.

My 96 chevy blazer has a code ''random 4 misfire'' only misses when in park or idleing at a light. is this and injector issue?


my 96 blazer would have random missfires.... sometimes more than one cylinder at a time... there are a few things to try.... 96 vortecs still used distributor caps... but they had such a high intensity spark that they were well noted for frying distributor caps and ignition coils... i would start there... also a few times i had to replace the crankshaft timing sensor.... it could be something as small as a spark plug wire... i would start with the ignition before spending money to check the fuel system
