Pull all your plugs (one at a time and replace afterwards) and make note of any plugs that maybe black or wet. Do a compression test on those cylinders. You made the plugs hotter with the new coil but the potential flooding amy have just caught up. If this is any help, please check good or fixya. Tahnk you

1999 v6 firebird misfires on #6 cyl when under load, plug was fuel fouled last time I had it replaced, but keeps missing only when under load. no other problems.


if you've changed the spark plug and no difference, then it's time to swap the coil with another cyl. coil and see if the miss goes to the other cylinder, if it does'nt follow to other cylinder, then I would replace that injector !

Hello Ronald.

You are experiencing a misfire.
As you are experiencing, the fuel mixture in the ngine is quite lean at that point and the engine is putting out all of torque it has. This is where the most spark available is needed.
What isn't happening is a strong spark in one or more of the engine cylinders.
This can be caused by a weak ignition coil, bad ignition wire, distributor cap/rotor or spark plug most commonly.
There are other less common possibilities such as a bad fuel injector, EGR valve, fuel issues but spark is first to take care of.

To check for weak ignition the first thing I do is spray a little soapy water on the ignition system with the engine running.
I like to do this in a dark area.
Start at the spark plug boots, look for a spark jumping off the wires to the engine. Keep squirting the water all the way back along the ignition wires to the distributor and back to the coil.
Replace anything that you see spark jumping off of.
Sometimes it takes a while for the water to soak at the distributor cap area.
If all your ignition is original Ronald, replace it. It's 15 years old.
Coil failure is very common. Sometimes you may not see the spark, it jumps off internally.
There are a few ideas for you, I hope it helps you find the problem.
Thank you for using FixYa.

2005 chevy cobalt 2.2 is running rough (putting)


Number three cylinder is miss fire,it does not mean it is the coil,although it could be,remove the coil,and boot,and spark plug,inspect them to see if the plug,or boot look bad,replace the spark plug,and if the boot is burned or distorted,replace it,a fuel injector can cause a miss fire also,but change the spark plug and see if this solves the problem,if not replace the coil,if it is a dead miss,then the coil might be bad,as for the water in the fuel ,the cap is missing,,and 5 dollars worth of HEET will not hurt,also,fuel from the fuel station,can have water in it.It happens a lot.

Missing problem


The best way is to replace the sparking coil and then while doing this it will be wise to check the spark plugs and the leads. Cheers.

Can't keep coils working


Have you replace spark plugs? They may be overworking the coil packs. I would recommend the motorcraft spark plugs.

1994 bonneville misses especially at speed and acellerating


good chance you may have a bad coil, you can check by disconnecting the plug wires at the coil to see if your getting any spark, if your not seeing any spark when car is running your coil is bad. be sure to do disconnect the plug wire when engine is not running and key is off!
New coils run around $26.00 easy to change out, you only need a nut driver, 2 small bolts.
