Check all of the boots and make sure they are secure on the spark plugs and the coils. This should be your problem unless their is a chance you mixed up wires. Please rate thank you

Make sure the spark plugs are gapped correctly,and they are not from auto zone,they use factory seconds,Make sure the boots are on the coils ,and spark plugs too.Then look at the primary wiring to the coils to make sure they are going to the correct coil(cylinder).

SOURCE: how do you change spark plugs and wires

Remove the plastic coil cover from the middle of each valve cover. Remove the coils. Unscrew and remove the spark plugs. Installation is the reverse....

If you have wires, you have three coils and not six and you've actually got wires. To remove one end of a wire, first twist, then pull. If it won't twist, use spray silicone lubricant.

You may have a large plastic beauty cover over the top of your engine. If it's in the way, remove the four nuts and the cover.

thanks.

Do a Compression Test, do a VISUAL INSPECTION of the Spark Plugs. If there is a COLOR DIFFERENCE and / or the Spark plugs on Cylinder 1 and 2 are CLEAN. you have a blown head gasket.

Firing order diagram


Here is the firing order diagram for that vehicle, and if the ignition wires are not crossed then one of the spark plugs might have been damaged while installing it and the spark plug gap closed on one of the spark plugs, or one of the ignition wires (spark plug wires) has been damaged, and if those wires are over 5 years old then you should replace them. I hope that this helps you to solve your problem.

The destributor cap was loose, engine was running ruff, replaced cap, tuck running fine. After 100 miles it is running ruff again and check engine light is on. I found a hose around the destrutor cap,...


When's the last time you replaced the spark plug wires? Try that for you mis-fire. As for the vacuum hose, there should be a routing diagram somewhere on the hood or engine compartment somewhere. Trace it out and find where it should go. Oh BTW, bad spark plug wires can ruin a distributor cap.
