Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It's common on all cars specially when years passes by. As a first course of action have the fuel injectors checked. There can be clogged injectors that's why you have misfires. Replacing the spark plugs and plug wires can help too.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

The car is misfiring and i dont know what might be the cause

if your car is misfiring, the first place you should look is your spark plugs. I know that is the most common place people start. I am not sure if you did, but if you have sorry. Next would be the plugwires, distributor cap and rotor. More than likely any one of these or all of these will fix the problem.

I just changed the spark plugs in my Volvo s60 T5 and the check engine light still reads cylinder 3 misfires. What should I do?

This fault could be a spark plug wire too, and even a coil pack, or distributor component. Keep up the hunt for the problem!

Schedual manance list

I don't know of any schedules for specific vehicles online. The info is proprietary knowledge. Go to the Volvo dealer's parts department. Order an owner's manual. It'll come in the mail. Probably 15- 20 bucks. The maint.schedule is in there. It'll also have directions for everything on the car.

Did you set the plug gap correctly?Improperly gapped plugs will cause the spark to be to cold or to hot and can cause misfire of the fuel wich would explain the vibration,this could also be caused by the wrong heat range on the plug.Check what spark plugs Volvo reccomends and the gap.
