Truck ran fine. I changed the spark plugs and now it misfires or crossfire a on acceleration whys that


You probably connected the wrong spark plug wire to the wrong spark plug. You'll have to find the firing order and check your wires. I can't help you with that because you didn't indicate what kind of truck and engine you have.

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.

My husband did a tune up on my car yesterday and now it wont start it will turn over like it wants to start but it wont he said that its miss firing we have bought 3 new coil packs and still will not start...


If your car is miss firing and your husband changed the coil packs,the wires leading from coil packs to sparkplugs must have got crossed.This will change car timing which will result in the car miss firing.He needs to go over wiring and correct problem for car to run right.You can go online to autozone.com and type in Info about car to get the correct wiring layout.Your problem isnt the new plugs n wires.Its the wiring layout.

Misfiring on the 1 and 3 cyclinder. need firing order to figure out what is causing it. Do you know firing order or what could cause misfire?


Misfire could be caused from bad plugs, plug wires, coils, injectors or fuel pressure. How many miles on the plugs and wires? Were the plugs gapped correctly? Time for a tune-up? You can get the parts you need as well as firing order and diagragm to show which cylinder is 1, 2, 3, 4,5 and 6 at Auto Zone.

Cannot start changing pugs and wires


Sounds like you have the firing order right but your off on the #1 on the distributer. Every time you get an explosion coming from the carb its misfiring. Find the #1 on dist and continue with firing order
