Check with your dealer for recalls they are free and might even score you a free engine in this case if conditions are right. there are several recalls with fixes for the dying out but also there is a recall for power valves (butterflly valves loosing screws and landing unpleasantly on pistons and valves) check with your dealer.

Number one missing


Sometimes plugs break. If money is an issue, swap the plug to another cylinder to see if the problem follows it. Otherwise, you may have a stuck intake (or possibly exhaust) valve.

Misfiring 16 cylinder natural gas electronic engine


plug wire , plug or a valve. usually plug wire will cause a miss a valve if on intake side will cause it to misfire sometime back into the intake. the plug can sometimes fire and sometimes not so simple replacement would fix. compression check would tell if it is valve issue.

2001 honda s2000 miss fire when ac is on No cel and also only when cold. stops when wormed up


Of course it could be a defective plug or a failing coil for that one cylinder. A steady miss fire should set a trouble code.
You might take another look at the plugs and the connector between the plug and the coil. It could also be a fuel problem such as a fuel filter or O2 sensor.
You may need to hook a scanner to the computer and watch the sensors when the engine is cold compared to warmed up.

I have a 180E 1991 model that is hard to start and when it does start it has a bit of a miss sometimes when starting it backfires/pops through air cleaner, others days just won't start


BACK FIRING AND HARD STARTING COULD BE CAUSED BY LOW FUEL PRESSURE CAUSED BY WORN FUEL PUMP.STOP UP FUEL FILTER AND STOPPED UP FUEL INJECTORS.IF ALL IS GOOD LOOK FOR VACUUM LEAKS AT INTAKE HOSES AND INTAKE MANIFOLD.WORN VALVES WILL CAUSE MISSING AND BACKFIRING.

My 1999 denali had a valve job. It had a miss prior to the work. After putting it all back together it still has a miss. I changed all the plugs wire and capotor. What could be causig the miss.


Are your injectors all firing and are your plugs firing on all cylinders?
If you have a miss, is it being picked up by the computer as a miss on a certain cylinder?

2004 ram light indicates random miss fire, Replaced EGR valve, plugs, wires coils, fuel pump.


check your fuel rail because it could be putting out only so many psi of fuel so do fuel pressure test check. also what kind of fuel are you using? sometimes could be firing order or timing sequence. better check that too because eventually if this turns out to be electrically related it would be best to perform a diagnostic scan on it to be safe.
good luck!!!
