When a engine cuts out or miss fires its usually caused by worn or bad spark plugs and plug wires it can also be a worn or bad distributer cap and rotor if the motor has one most motors have coil packs witch do go bad but not as often i would check the plugs and wires first.

Converter was red burning hot no power, cutting out


the cutting out is what is causing the converter to over heat, best guess is that you have an engine miss-fire and that is allowing raw fuel into the converter, first you need to find out if there is a bad spark plug wire or coil that is causing the engine miss-fire could be as easy as just a tune-up. check that out then let me know if you need anything more.

97 k1500 5.7 liter vortec misses on cylinders 3 and 5 while idling. about 1500 rpm only cylinder 3 and 4 miss then at 2000 rpm only cylinder 4 and 8 miss. what could cause this?


I have had continuous missing issues on my 1997 Silverado after i had a new engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Today I purchased a new gasket for the EGR Valve and removed it. The mechanic had re-used the old gasket when he replaced the engine and cut corners to save $2.00. I found he had installed the EGR bass-ackwards causing my check engine light to stay on and the engine always to miss. Engine runs GREAT now

My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee cuts off while driving


Sounds a whole lot like a dirty or malfuncitionig idle air control valve. A coil would generally show up as a miss under load or high rpm, crank sensors generally work or they dont, only sometimes giving you a miss, but that would be all the time at any rpm. Computer, I doubt for too many reasons to list. Could also be related to a bad throttle position sensor or a very slight vacuum leak.

Engine misses at times which seems to happen more on a bumpy road or when going over sleeping policemen (traffic calming ramps). it never cuts completely out just spits and misses


Look for a loose electrical connection, especially on the ignition circuit.
Check your coil mounting and spark plug high tension lead connections.
Check ground connection between engine and battery is in not loose or missing,

Stumbles and miss fires


Or, more likely, whichever sensors got wet finally dried out. Like I said before NEVER wash engine!!!

Engine cuts out , does not throw a code


I also have a 2001 Crown Vic that developed a problem similar to this. It would lope and buck at around 40-45 MPH. I too changed the plugs, then changed the coil boots. It still missed. So I bought 1ea. new coil. After changing the new coil with three old ones, the missing stopped.
