Your crank position sensor does not read individual cylinders, only the position of the crank shaft. make sure the plugs and wires are good, check the spark coming from the coil, make sure there are no vacuum leaks at intake manifold, check timing, then do a leak down test to make sure you don't have a bent or damaged valve in the cylinder head.

My 2008 Ford Bantam seems to have strange firing order 1-2-4-3? is this correct. Also the distributor does not have an H.T. lead. Can someone help please?

4 cylinder engines can have both firing orders
the more common one is 1-3-4-2 but some manufacturers have the other firing order
it depends on the manufacture of the position of the crank pin
some reason for it are
less harmonic vibrations
less stress on crank webs
easier manufacturer
for the missing problem run the fault codes and check for ambient temp sensor , maf/vaf sensor or BARO sensor problem

2006 jeep liberty once I hit second gear it vibrates

multiple code issue (evaporative, catalyst efficiency, and miss fire)doubtfull all 1 source of error but draw attention to the miss fire code PO300 is a random cylinder miss fire, possible crank position or cam position sensors.but i would check timing first.

Cylinder 1 is not firing or is intermittently firing. Check the output on the coil associated with #1 cylinder by using a spare plug attached to #1 wire while engine is running. If it has good spark, check the fuel injector for possible problems. Crank shaft sensor would not be the problem as the engine has to have it to run. You may need to have it checked further at a reputable repair shop as this can get more involved than a back yard repair.

I have a '03 Toyota Celica GT-S with a annoying mis-fire. Started small by replacing all spark plugs - nothing. Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked...

Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked compression which check out good and put the computer on. Computer read mis-fire on cylinder 1, and then multiple misfire (like it would jump around). We went ahead and replaced the fuel injector on cylnder 1 - did not solve problem as when we hook the computer up, misfire seemed tp stay at idle and seem better when running high RMP, but check engine light is on as it never went away. Went ahead and replaced the coil pack to cylinder 1 - nothing. what am i missing?

At idle the engine misses, off idle very smooth and runs normally computer code multi cylinder misfire. have changed plugs and wires did not help. could it be the coil packs of a fuel problem?

This sounds as if you have a vacuum leak, check all the lines and check the intake. There are a lot of things that will cause mis fire. mis fire code is triggered when the ecm reads a very slight difference in the time the crank sensor picks up a signal. Mis fires can be from electrical, vacuum, mechanical, and eletronic sources. If you can get it to a person/shop that read which cylinder are misfiring this helps alot, narrows the field. Let me know I can help. Also it helps to know what engine we are dealing with

The reason I'm checking the timing belt is that there is mis-fire in 1 & 2 cylinder. If the firing order is 1,2,3,4. I have continues fire out of 1 & 2, when plug wires are pulled out of head. 3...

unplug the fuel injectors, check the olhms on all. the readings should all be the same, around 11-11.5 olhms. Any readings that are higher is a sign of a bad injector which is what your problems sounds like., putting to much fuel to a cylinder causing different fuel amounts to each cylinder and causing it to backfire out of the throttle body , excess fuel . Also remove the throttle body and clean with cleaner and a toothbrush after replacing any injectors. Or there's a simpler answer and that the cambshaft is worn-out/round causing the lifters not to open enough to let in all the fuel. A worn belt would not cause misfires only on select cylinders but rather jump timing, slipping a notch on a gear and possibly bending a valve or valves and this cause a loud clacking or a really a sign to quit running the motor because it's broke! Good luck.

Code po304 #4 cylinder mis fire

ck if you have spark at the coil for that cylinder. check the plug wire closely. if it has spark at the coil, then replace all the spark plug wires.

The egnition coils is mis fireing

My car is stalling to start. If I just hold the key, it will eventually catch and go ahead and crank. I've changed the crank sensor. Fuel pump is good. Any other ideas?
