Missfire on my vw golf gls 2001 on the 2 cylinders is it spark plugs and wires?? The check engine light is on and my air doesnt work could it use gas to make it work ?? Also when im driving my oil...


i'll answer based on the importance of the problem:

1. oil light.
make sure that your oil level is correct. you can check it by removing your dip stick.

2. air is not working.
it means you have a rich mixture (meaning your engine does not have the correct air/fuel ratio). most common cause of this problem is very dirty/very old air filter. if the air filter seems ok, have your fuel injectors and air vaccuums cleaned.

3. misfires.
to check if your high tension wire(htw) is working, detach the suspected wire from the spark plug (detach the end connected to the plug only). turn on your engine. slowly move the detached wire towards the head (cylinder head) and see if there will be sparks. if there are sparks, then spark plugs is your problem

My 2006 Ford Focus is acting up and I need to know what it is. When I speed up, like to pass someone or to get onto the interstate, it will start to speed up, then start slowing down. While it is slowing...


ok do a spark plug change also have the spark plugs check to see if you have loose spark plug.sometimes the white smoke means you have to much oil in the motor and or your piston rings are going out.use a bottle of see foe in the gas tank and in the motor but make sure you get the oil change ok .that should fix the problem

I have a 2001 Focus that is showing a #3 misfire, changed the spark plugs and wires and it is still running rough? What next?


had the same thing with my crown vic on the #8 cylinder. changed plugs and wires. still missing. wound up replacing the coil pack. you can check resistence of the coil between companion spark plug towers. ford marks each tower with 2 cylinder #'s. resisistence should be around 10-12 ohms

check you put the same rated plugs in as there are a few different types they are rated from a cold plug to a hot plug which basically means the run better at the set temp

2001 Ford Focus stopped running while i was driving and wont start. Makes a churning sound but no power is going to engine. I changed the ignition coil, still wont turn on. Any suggestions?


Can you explain more so I can help. What do you mean still wont turn on, engines doesn't start or starter motor doesn't turn. Have u taken out a spark plug and connected it to the cable put the end of the spark plug to a ground and make someone turn on the engine for a few seconds you should see some blue sparks. Carefully use gloves. If no sparks, spark plug is bad next thing to check instead of putting the spark plug in the cable put Philips screwdirver put the screwdriver near a ground not touching about one inch make someone turn the engine for a couple of second you should see the spark jumping from the screwdriver to the ground, If there are no sparks ignition coil or spark plug cables are not good. But u say u changed ignition coil so maybe your cables are not good. There is a connector near the ignition coil disconnect it and turn ignition switch on measure the voltage you should have in between 12vdc + or - .5 vdc if no voltage present there is a blown fuse, Check for it

Sounds like a fuel/air problem. Replace fuel filter, check/replace air filter and spark plugs, complete the tuneup and see what happens. If it still happens then suspect injectors. Run cleaner through a tank of gas. If still the same take it to a shop that can plug into your vehicle and verify injectors performance.
