What causes the engine to miss fire on #2 cylinder?

If you shoot me your year I might have the info you need. And - depending on your year - the 94ish years had TWO coil packs for the 4 cylinder - 8 plug wires basically. When any of the leads of either of those coil packs goes out - youre going to experience a miss condition. If it's the v6 - you've got a cam sensor that can cause that type of action - and have you checked your throttle positioning sensor? If that goes out - the ecu will get mixed signals and can act like that as well. If you can tell me the year I'll see if I got the info you need. All the best.

How to do a spark plug change on a 2003 Jeep Liberty

how to move hands, ?
what tools
im i to guess this is your first spark plug pull even on a lawn-mower?

what engine do you have, 90% posts lack what engine it is on a engine question, and we are still guessing, and nuttn happens.
lets pull HV wires 1 by 1, and replace them using a spark plug socket wrench.
if the engine has COP coils, those come off, first, (do tell got cops)>?

do not mix up the spark wires or it will not run.
why not watch youtube of 10000 doing this on all engines. to get a fell of the ways and means.... simple huh?
only start a spark plug by hand , never use a wrench.
rule1. end.
do not over tighten them (rule 2)

2.4L engine, 4 cylinder??????
this is my guess.
ill look that up for you.
ok i looked, the 2.4L uses coil pack
so rule 1 applies, DO NOT MIX the HV wires on the COIL PACK>
remove the spark plug wire from ONE spark plug]
remove the spark plug (turns counter clock wise)
put in new plug (right part number and gap it to spec.
torque it to spec, and put back the wire.
move to next plug wire and repeat.

HV means those high voltage spark wires, that make you glow like a June bug if you get HIT. the 50,000 volt wires.

RE14MCC5 (Champion #) plugs
48 thou gap
but the hood sticker wins this ... not me.... read it.

the 3.7 has 6 cop coils , no signal coil pack.
my 3.8L has coil packs.
so as you can see , each engine is unique, by year and car.

Install coil pack.

is the missing words,
How to? like in how to remove the bolts and put it back?
is this a single coil
or COPs.
(varies by country)

how to unbolt a COIL pack?
well you unscrew the bolts. is that what you need?

its just a coil?, unplug it and DO NOT MIX wires if this is a wasted spark coil pack, do not.
if cops, say so, 6 cops.
I dont think 2005 has a distributor. so you have either 6 coils
or 3 coils in a pack.
some call the wasted spark pack a coil rail, but is just 3 coils
packed in plastic,
say what you need, get help.l

No spark

so why not scan it.
Connect any scan tool
crank it for 5sec.
release key,
see those DTC's they tell you what part is bad, or a huge clue.
wires, you replaced them 1 for 1 or mixed them.??????? oops now 2 times bad.

but no spark is no spark, on ALL CYLINDERS>????
which engine
2.0 L 3S-FE I4 (petrol)
2.0 L 3S-GE I4 (petrol)

this engine has a coil pack with 4 wires, never mix them. that wires.
and do check for spark at all 4 ends.
see the coil pak here, see those numbers there. they tell you
where to connect the wires.$_57.JPG

this photo even shows, where they go.
if spark is gone, ITS SCAN TOOL TIME.
barrow one, rent one, buy one of $9 (off fleabay)

this ECU/PCM will in fact tell you if the CMP or CKP sensors
are dead. IT WILL.
if you dont believe me, unplug one and see, BAM, P0340 or 355 or?

I replaced the spark plugs, wires, coil pack, and it wont turn over. I hear the starter turning and the wine of the fuel pump and nothing.

You need to check if you have connected the wires to your coil pack correctly. Also check all the plug leads and make sure they are sucurely plugged in to the coil pack and on to the plugs.
If it was running prior to this and all your fuses are good then you may have mixed up the wires.
