Engine cylinder numbering


problem is that what auto zone told you was not complete
misfiring is more from faulty injectors/ injector control/wiring than from plugs and HT leads
so if you have replace the leads one for one then the problem will be the injectors

In theory you should be worrying about all warning lights but that is sometimes impractical when it becomes necessary to allow things to develop in order to find out what might be going wrong and wait until a decisive problem appears - often the expected problem never does develop.

Cylinder 1 is not firing or is intermittently firing. Check the output on the coil associated with #1 cylinder by using a spare plug attached to #1 wire while engine is running. If it has good spark, check the fuel injector for possible problems. Crank shaft sensor would not be the problem as the engine has to have it to run. You may need to have it checked further at a reputable repair shop as this can get more involved than a back yard repair.

Error Code Cylinder 7 Mis-Firing & Vibration When Going Up Hill


yes i would change the plug wires , you can take a spray bottal with water and spray that wire, and if it starts to run real bad then it is shorting out, you may also have a injector going bad you can test this buy puting a ohms meter on it and ck the ohms it should read the same or close to the same as the other if not it will need replaced

Our 2005 Honda Odyssey had a check engine light / misfire


When a cylinder mis-fires there is a reason. The dealer should have told you that. Most likely you have a fouled out spark plug. Which means you need new spark plugs and maybe wires. All this would be covered in a standard tune up. Once the bad spark plug is replaced, the computer will quit registering a mis-fire. Please give good ratings, they meen a lot to us.... Thank you

the number 6 cylinder is located (if you are looking at it from the front of the car) it is on the left side third cylinder back from the front. you probally have a bad injector that is just dripping fuel into that cylinder.
