OK IS THERE IS ACTUALLY A mis-FIRE THIS VEHICLE SHOULD BE SHAKING DURING IDLE AND ACCELERATION IF IT IS, here is what you do get a noid light this used to check injector pulse. This vehicle will set a misfire code if injector is not functioning efficiently or bad. A noid light is like a test light bulb can be bought at almost any auto store.SART UP VEHICLE AND DISCONNECT THE INJECTOR WIRE TO THE CYLINDER THAT'S mis-FIRING AND CONNECT noid LIKE TO ELECTRICAL PLUG. DO THIS ONE CYLINDER AT A TIME. The nod light should have a steady flickering light/consistent pattern of flickering. If there is Gap/irratic flickering or no flickering BINGO you have found your problem. NO FLICKERING= bad/broken injector wire if not broken BAD COMPUTER/ECU. IF THE FLICKERING IS CONSISTENT /GOOD = BAD INJECTOR..replace injector and solve the misfire problem. However is all the components tested are ALL GOOD. Then the only other SOURCE for a mis-fire is the camshaft sensor that provides reference for injector pulse and the crankshaft sensor provide reference for Spark pulse. JUST ON A LAST NOTE: make sure all oils are getting electrical power to them. Good Luck I know this is alot of info at once. Contact me if you need more help. Thanks fr using FIX YA

SOURCE: mercedes c200 elegance 1996 model mis-firing on cylinders 1-4

I beleive your firing order is 1 3 4 2. 1 and 4 are companion cylinders-meaning the piston is up or down at the same time i.e. compression and exhaust stroke both pistons are up and even on the exhaust stroke the ignition fires in order to burn unburnt fuel/ h ve you checked your trigger. There is a good coil testing tool that is placed over the coil and has a magnetic pickup that allows you to see if the coil is being triggered-just because you have power doesn't mean that you will have spark. I would replace your ignition wires and look at your wiring harness very carefully- if it is very brittle and you see bare wires exposed that is your most likley problem because the trigger is working for 1 and 3 and has the crank senser input for all for spark plugs and the cam senser is used for ignition advance and your fuel injection system. try wiggling your harness and see if your coils start to work. wireharnesses are a major problem on mercedes benz vehicles of that era. I hope I have been helpful

I have a miss fire on cylinder 2and 3 I have changed coil pack ,spark plugs and wires still have the missing in it did not make a difference what else can I do


Is the computer code coming up as a misfire or are you actually feeling the misfire when you drive? Make sure all the grounds for the coil packs and engine are solid and clean. Many times there is rust corrosion under the pack or the retaining screws etc, Low compression can feel like a misfire as well. If all items are OK do a compression check to verify its not an issue.

1990 geo storm sohc is running rough. Parts that are new: cap, rotor, plugs wires,plugs, pickup coil, and the ignition module looks brand new. The coil is old, but is still sending spark through all the...


I would look into replacing the coil even though it is sending spark it might not be enough and I would go through and just double check all my wires as well as the firing order because if it's off just a little it will make the car run rough

87 oldsmobile toronado not getting any spark


ECM requires both crank sensor signal and cam sensor signal to fire the coils. Check for spark at the plugs first. Check the plug wires, then the coils. Only if you have no spark at any coil would I suspect the ignition module, and even then only if you have a good crank and cam signal. Do you have any codes stored in the ECM? They could help pinpoint the problem.

1990 caravan 3.3l motor has spark to cylinders#1 2 3 4 5 but no spark to #6, put new coil pack on, didnt change anything, any ideas


It could be a simple ignition wire problem. Try swapping the #6 wire with one from a known good cylinder and see if the problem follows.

#1 cylinder not firing


you need to check compression on that cylinder if it is ok the coil pack could be bad disconect number 1 wire from the coil pack hold a screwdriver with a plastic handle near the hole where the wire goes in and see if there is spark coming out of the coil pack if there is you just might have a bad wire if there is no spark there change the coil pack
