I had the same problem try this.. Put the igintion in the on postion. Find the coil take a screw driver there will be to leads one at a time quickly take the screw driver metal shaft put on one of the leads and ground it and repeat on the other one.. This will reset the computer on the coil it is the only way that I have found to work.. ( DO NOT HOLD THE SCREW DRIVER ON THERE MORE THAN A SPARK) try at you're own risk I thought that it was crazy when I was told but it worked...

Have a 2001 Magnum 318 V-8 W/Intermitted Popping/Missfiring With No Check-Engine Light ! Ignition-Wires,Spark-Plugs,Rotor-Distributor-Cap,Coil+TPS All New ,Still Act's-Up As Mentioned Above!!

I would be checking the firing order of the HT leads as you may have crossed leads which will cause the problems.. Ensure that the HT leads do not touch each other as that will cause miss fires as the current jumps across the leads and fires the wrong plug. There are spacer clamps available to keep the wires apart. The problem is most evident on el cheapo plug leads as there is less insulating properties as to the dearer ones.

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE About a week ago the check engine light came on, it started running rough, especially at idle. Computer diagnostic results showed missfire in cylinder 6. I replaced...

i would definately replace the coil. pretty certain that will solve your problem. do not drive with misfire or that can cause fruther damage such as catalyst failing, which is prety expensive.

I have a missfire code on the check engine light. 1997 honda prel

Find out which cylinder is missfiring by using an inductive timing light to check each plug wire for spark. If you find a dead wire you should replace the all the wires and spark plugs. If you don't find a dead wire check the distributor cap. You could have a broken contact or a crack which might cause a loss of spark at one cylinder.

Honda wires are much better than their aftermarket counterparts so don't skimp there.

I hope this helps. Good luck and be careful!

Cleo 1.2 16v car feels like missfire light shows

Probably dirty fuel. If you use supermarket fuel try using Shell V-Power or BP Ultimate for a couple of tankfuls. You may find that it's actually cheaper in terms of pence per mile as well!

2007 Ford Fusion shaking when stopped

Sounds like a missfire, check spark plugs and HT leads from coil, they suffer from water damage from the windscreen washer jets. If water found you will need new coil, plugs Ht leads and revised washer jets from ford.
