Backfiring is not good means a valve is not operating as it should.timing is out ....either a timing belt or distributor is going bad, or plug wires are not in proper order.

Why would engine run rough after tunr up?


Are plug wires connected in the right firing order to the plugs? Also are the spark plugs gap correct? Was vehicle running rough before tune up or only after?

I just changed the plugs and wires on my 2004 H2. Now the check engine light is on and it is running very rough. I double checked that the wires appear to all be connected properly.


if its running poor or stumbling then you have some wires/plug not firing correctly, this means a bad wire/ bad plug, or you mixed a few of them up. go back over them again and make sure you have everything hook up right.

I have a miss fire


Recheck the firing order; 1-6-5-4-3-2

On the distributor passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6-coil
On the distributor drivers side radiator to fire wall. 3-1-5

Cylinder passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6
Cylinder drivers side radiator to fire wall. 1-3-5

Good luck and also check the distributor cap again for proper seating.

No check engine light on runs rough while in gear


Plug Mis-firing (firing-but not adequately) no light and no fire.
Causes: Spark plug bad, spark plug wire leaking.
If you can pull the spark plugs - and you find that one of them is wet or very dirty - compared to the others....the you have the wire/plug source identified.

Miss firing


could be a wire crossed, or it's out of time. since you used motorcraft plugs, did you set them properly to the correct gap? replacing plugs without gapping them can cause the sluggishness, out of time can cause the mis-fires and rough running.
