I agree with above answers. And would add to double check that the leads(if still on correct plugs) are pushed fully home onto the electrode tip of the plug. You could carry out a simple check on your ht leads by making a simple 12v test lamp ( if you dont have a tester) to test for continuity. But only ever ever ever remove one ht lead at any one timeunless you are a million percent sure where they all go back to

Go back and pull each spark plug wire and put it right back on. There is probably a loose one. This is assuming that you didn't pull all the wires off at once when changing the plugs. If you did, the you put the wires back on in the wrong order. Then, you'll need to find a manual online for the correct wiring order for the plug wires.

If they are on in the right order, you need new plug wires. They don't last forever!

Check engine light on engine acts as if missing new plugs wires and #5 spark pack missing again 6cyl 4x4 3.4 185000 miles


was it running this way before you changed the plugs? just a shot in the dark here possibly a defective spark plug, rare but not impossible. if it was running fine before changing them. Other wise I would take it to autozone and pull codes if it is P0350 #5 misfire we would use the process fuel, fire and compression. is there any engine coolant around any cylinders? Have you checked the coil packs? could be a bad coil pack. if no evidence of fluid around them proceeded to check for spark, fuel then compression. post back results or new post with more deductions. iis it no spark no fuel or bad compression.

1998 Lincoln navigator with 180,000 miles is recently getting bad gas mileage and around 35 to 40 mph it will **** and seems to lose power then will start driving normal again but always have to press...


Your description sounds more like a torque converter clutch problem. It would explain the poor mileage, having to floor it to go. I suggest having the transmission scanned, looking at the slip speed of the torque converter clutch.

Engine miss firing installed new plugs still miss fires


You may get one bad spark plug in 50 years of driving

Does that answer your question?

You did not diagnose your problem, which
was a misfire.

Do you have codes PO301 thru PO306?

Ignition Coils cause misfires

Have to know the system your working on

Car turns over but won't crank. spark plugs are


Turning over and cranking are often the same thing, so Im not sure what your asking... Do you mean the car turns over but wont fire, or start? If thats the case and as you say the plugs are getting spark, then your problem is gonna be the fuel pump 99% of the time... Try this little trick, have a friend hit the fuel tank from under the car with a NON metalic hammer (ie a rubber or wooden mallet or chunk of solid wood etc) while your trying to start the engine. If the car fires up, then dont risk doing that trick again as it probably wont work twice, and get it to your mechanic to get a new fuel pump installed. If it doesnt work, (it really is a 50/50 thing) then get it towed and have the fuel pump changed as its still probably the problem...

Engine light on miss aceleracion wont go more then 50 mph


At 45 or 50 is the engine RPM normal? If its higher that it should be transmission could be slipping.
If the engine is misfiring at 45 or 50 it could be the spark plugs.
If its just holding back on power it could be catylitic convertor, or possibly fuel filter.
