Belt usually isnt the reason for a misfire, when was the last time you changed plugs and wires? If you hold the brake and put it in gear while still holding the brake apply the gas does it miss more then? Ive had to replace upper intake rubber gaskets that had 1 cylinder misfiring but ive also had it be a wire or a plug and yes even just a coil.

How do i fix my 2001 cadillac catera idle problem. ive tried fuel injector cleaner, changed the spark plugs, and o2 sensors, but it still idles rough and im throwing these codes. bad o2 sensor bank 1...

The problems you are describing indicate to me that you likely need to replace the coil pack that runs from the spark plugs ,and the plug wires end up at it.It also may be the spark plug wires,get a water bottle and spray the wires after dark and if you get a light show from them then replace them,if not,replace the coil pack.

Starter turns over and starts as soon as i let off the key it kills Ive change the starter silinoid and it still dousnt work

The ballast resistor is bad or the ingtion swich is. witrh the key on their shold be power at the ingtion coil. if not check at the ballast resistior it shoud show a test light on all terminals. with slightly different brightness. jumper wire to the positive on the coil from the battery positive shold keep it running. find the broken wire or the bad part with the test light. the starter solind only turns on the spark while cranking. even the key switch can be bad or the wire coming from it.

The problem could be in the injection control module. This can be checked by what they call a noid light that can be purchased at a parts house, plug it into the injector pigtail start the car and see if the noid light comes on when it is supposed to fire on that injector if does not then the control module is going bad.

No spark

Is the coil pack working at all? It could just be a simple ignition ground gone bad, or even a power wire corroded to badly. Also, clean the connections between the plugs and wires, and also the coil pack and wires.
