Check your plugs and see what color they are,they should have a nice tan color if they seem to be wet (smell of gas ) you are running too rich,etc. If it is in the fuel portion.Could possibly be in the firing also ,something getting too hot after riding for awhile and cutting out (coils , etc).Also could be a bad plug on one cylinder.Buy you a Clymer manuel or something simliar to try to narrow your choice down because there are a lot of varibles involved in misfires .

97 CAVALIER Z-24 UNDERSIDE OF THE CAR GETS SO HOT IT SMOKES YET THE ENGINE DOESNT GET HOTALSO IT IS MISS FIRING


Everytime it missfires the unburned fuel will be burned in the catalytic converter. Hopefully you can get it tuned up before the cat. conv. is ruined. Plugs, wires, coils etc. While the plugs are out run a compression test . Look at plugs for oil fouling at that age valve stem seals sure could be an issue and feeding oil into the exhaust system fire you have going on.

Missfire on cylinder 8 on bmw 545


move the ignition coil to another cylinder and see if the miss fire moves. If so replace that ignition coil. If the miss fire stays on that cylinder it is more likely the fuel injector. Was their carbon on the spark plugs when you removed them? This is indicative that the fuel injector is gummed up.

better look at the blender door. this is a vacuum controled door that allows hot or cold air to flow into the HVAC system and blends the temps together to make the desired temp for you, but if this is electronicly controled you might have a temp sending unit bad or even a control unit bad, as for the miss fire most people wouldn't know a miss fire from a bump in the road anymore. engines anymore if there is a missfire code, there is a missfire, find out what cylinder if missfiring and replace the sparkplug, wire, or coil, you can have the wire loaded to see if its the spark plug or not, and then get the coil tested as well, this will say you money inthe long run since replacing random parts if a waste of money on your part. test it and find the failing part and replace...

Hello crey60
Try checking the fuel injector on the #3 clyinder for dirt or damage. A faulty injector will cause a missfire code and trip the check engine light. Hope this is helpful.

check or relace your coil pack due to the fact that when a coil pack is going bad it usually looses its umph. when it get hot and that would explain random miss fires

Missing and engine light goes on and off temp Gage


do not drive it with a flashing light. that means a severe missfire is detected and cat converter failure is likely.also the possibility of fire caused by the red hot exaust is a good possibility.i would check the common causes first, spark plugs, plug wires. have codes pulled or by a cheap code puller at somewere like shucks/autozone/harbor freight etc.that will narow it down to wich cylinder[s] are effected plus nowadays its just somethimg you have to have.

Check engine light blinked continuosly and smoking


you have a severe missfire thats why the light is blinking
the smoke and sound were the cat converter[s] glowing red hot from the missfire
dont drive it untill the missfire is fixed or youll ruin the cats[if not already] plus a good chance of fire exists

My 2001 chevy blazer is misfiring and will not rev beyond 2000rpm without cutting out but it idles alright


trying to rev the engine in neutral will not work. the computer will limit the rpms.it is kind of a goofy safety measure built into the system. to diagnos the missfire you can remove one plug wire at a time with an insulated pliers.the missfireing one will -not-slow down the engine speed. if all cylinder are firing properly at idle and only misfires under load you will probably need some help have a driver put on the brake and accelerate a little untill it misses. when you have verifyed this try the same thing with the plug wires while it is missing. do not keep the engine torqed this way for more thn a couple of seconds. you could damage the trans.. when you locate the missing cylinder you will need to find out why it is missing. look at the spark plug,and maybe swap one plug wire for another to see if the missfire moves to another cylinder. i am assuming you have no test equipment. if that does not change,see if you can get at that injector for that cylinder and lightly tap on it with a metal punch.if problem seems to go away or engine misses when tapping injector it will need to be replaced.
