I can almost guarantee you that you have a bad injector. You need to unplug the connector and check the resistance of that injector compared to the others. If it does not have the same resistance it is bad.

You can also use a long screwdriver to listen to the injector while the engine is running. Place the metal end on the injector and then place your ear on the plastic handle end. You should be able to hear the injector click. You can also compare this injector noise to the other injectors.

What if the check engine light is blinking only above 30 mph and not when accelerate on parking?


When a check engine light is flashing, you stop
using the car

That is a Class A converter ruining, serious cylinder
misfire & it did not just start,some sort of misfire may
have been there for months & you failed to know it

You changed one or two coils,not the really bad one

Engine service light 2002 mercury villager


I had that happening too, the diagnostic was random misfire. I didn't know what cylinder so the distributor cap, the rotor and spark plugs wires were changed it helped. The light still comes on now and again.

2000 mercury villager - The service engine light is on and the van is jerking when it is idling and when you take off. i took it to advanced auto and had them check the code and it said the number five...


I think you should take it to a repair shop, to have it
properly diagnosed & repaired

Your asking what someone thinks--how would we do that?

Your then asking, if you should try something else,AFTER
you were told what the code was,(a misfire on cylinder #5)

Now you see why I don't think it is within your ability to resolve?

I stepped on the gas the car took off then immediatley slowed in power. The engine light came on and started blinking. I could drive the car, but only at slow speed. 2007 Mercury Milan V6. Any ideas


when the check engine light blinks this is a sign of misfires but your going to need a scanner to determine which cylinders misfired and clear fault memory i would then recommend swapping coils and plugs from cylinders that misfired with ones that didnt and see if misfires migrate to determine bad coils or plugs
