It sounds like your are guessing and randomly replacing parts.

Go to autozone and have the code scanned. And come back here to ask more question. Otherwise you are wasting money.


Good Luck...

Changed the spark plugs and wires, now my engine makes a knocking sound. Why?


you may have the firing order wrong. best practice is to replace one at a time so not to get wires crossed with the wrong spark plug. your local parts store or the dealership can provide you with a print out of the firing order

The engine misfires when accelerating


Depending on your Grand Marquis's mileage...it sounds like plug wires and plugs...(worn out) and or engine timing/firing order? If plug wires recently changed...the spark plug wires are in the wrong firing order...confirm the firing order from your local parts store by phone...and retrace each one...always start with #1 cylinder...hope this helps.

I changed my spark plug wires and possibly have them connected wrong. Is there a schematic that I might follow in order to ensure they are connected correctly?


FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: 1988-95 4.3L Engines Firing Order: 1-6-5-4-3-2 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise 91022g01.gif

Change spark plugs and wires not truck wont start. could firing order be wrong!


You could have mixed up the order of the spark plug cables causing the firing order to be wrong. What is the exact year, make, model, and engine size of your truck?

2004 KIA OPTIMA WON'T START AFTER SPARK PLUGS WERE CHANGES


HI. There are several areas of concern here. I will list them below. Check all areas stated in the list for faults.

Possible cuases:

1. Incorrect firing order set. On the 2.0, 2.4 and 2.7 engines. These engines are equipped with a distributor-less ignition system. This system incorporates a coil pack assembly, along with wire sets. In order for the assembly to fire correctly, the order of the wires must be set to the proper sequence. if not, the engine will not turn over, or start correctly. Make sure your firing order is correct, and make sure you have not placed a particular wire set into the wrong cylinder. I will post a picture of the correct firing order for your engine, below this list, shortly.


2. Incorrect spark plug gapping procedure. If the new spark plugs were gapped incorrectly, this will not allow for proper spark, thus, preventing optimal combustion, due to lack of fire. Check the spark plug gap using a wire gap gauge, and adjust if necessary. The gap should be 0.039-0.043 in. (1.0-1.1mm)

3. Failed coil pack assembly. This will be the worst case scenario. The coil pack supplies the necessary current that fuels each plug. The current is transferred, via wire sets.This will be the culprit if all the above areas are proven to be operational, and in good shape.

4. Failed wire sets. Replace the wire sets if faults are found at the connector at the ignition coil pack, or at the plug boot.



NOTE*
In order to provide the correct firing order for your engine, i will need the engine size and liter information, if possible. Please post this information, asap. Thanks..
