    Could it be as simple as a bad spark plug or wire?

    How can a find the firing order for a 2002 Mazda MPV? I want to try and replace the coil pack for cylinder 3 as well as all 6 spark plugs to see if this will fix the problem.

    Do you know the order for a 2002 Mazda MPV? I found online that it's 1-2-3-4-5-6, but what does that exactly mean? Is the 1-2-3 cylinder towards the front of the car or the 3 in the back and do you count it from left to right or up and down?

    I have a problem in cylinder # 5 is misfiring.

  • Anonymous Oct 02, 2008

    Engine light is on. Engine shaking. I have tested the cylinders, it says #5 misfire. I have replaced the spark plugs, no improvement.

    I want to replace #5, but I dont know the order of the cylinders. Any body can help me by telling me the order the cylinders are in?

  • Kaybtch Oct 07, 2008

    Not just one cylinder misfiring, two or three. Was told two years ago when I had the same problem that it was a "design flaw" . Spark plug panel too close to firewall. Mazda should be stepping up to the plate to fix this.

If the head gasket is leaking, shouldn't there be water on the ground under the car?

Determine if you're losing water from the radiator. Do a compression test onn the cylinders to see if it's low. If the compression tester starts jumping up and down when you place it in #3, chances are really high that you have a leaking head gasket. It may be blowing back and forth in the cylinder next to it. This is a common problem with these engines.

    You can check it by switch the plug wire to the other side of the engine and basically you're going to see if you can move the miss to the other side of the engine. If the miss stays where it's at, make sure the spark plug is tight. If no change, head gasket is leaking.

    All you have to do is replace the plugs one at a time, this way you don't distrub the order.

Sounds like he has it sorted. Get it thoroughly checked over for bad leads, poor compression on one or more cylinders, valve or valve gear damaged. Its 15 years old, has it been regularly serviced? What mileage has it done? Is there oil in the water or water in the oil leading to the head gasket leaking. Something which happens after running without proper coolant which rots the gasket.

Number 3 and 4 are not firing from coil on 2002 subaru outback 2.5


its faulty coil.

Get the compression test done on each coil.these will let you know if its faulty coil or not.

=========

It can be issue with spark plugs or faulty spark plugs. Also get the compression test done for cylinders. If any of cylinder shows low compression then required, then that particular cylinder will cause misfire.

Also get obd codes scanned, the error code will let you know which cylinder is misfiring or all cylinders are misfiring.

Check engine light comes on and car idle's and drives with a shudder around 2500 rpms. First time check engine light came on put it on computer and said it was misfiring, so changed plugs and plug wires...


I found this; if it helps.
The injectors need to be cleaned, if an engine is experiencing any of the classic symptoms of dirty injectors, such as lean misfire, rough idle, hesitation and stumbling on light acceleration, a loss of power, and higher hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
Lean misfire may also trigger a misfire code and turn on the Check Engine light on 1996 and newer vehicles with OBD II systems. The code often will be a P0300 random misfire code, or you may find one or more misfire codes for individual cylinders, depending on which injectors are most affected.
