186 red motor. Why does it have a missfire under load?

Engine is under max load in the situations you describe, so any weakness in spark or low fuel prssure can cause this, even a weak ignition module.

2004 silverado missfires under load changed plugs and wires

You need to know what error code the computer is giving you, go to an Auto Parts store that will check your OBD and tell you the code 1st. It makes a difference on what repair you need.

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 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.

Missfiring while cruising

might want a valve regrind and new valve springs??But most likely cause is the the ecu wants resetting because the fault you describe is similar to when the dwell angle was wrong ,early citreons and peugots with the first electronic systems were like this ,it was done to give max fuel consumption which it did with over 50miles per gallon but ??? they did seem to give the same ride you describe

Sportster Missfiring

Sounds like a carby jetting issue. Sounds like she's running lean above idle, after you zero the enrichener. Suggest adjusting the pilot air screw ( air mixture screw) under carby. You need to remove a blanking cap to do this. See eg Buzz Buzzelli's book for this, or a Sportster forum. I'd back it out to 3-3.5 turns, very gently by 1/4 turns till she runs well. Good Luck.

Low RPM, high load is when the engine demands the best spark. More than likely you have a bad plug or plug wire causing this issue. You didn't say how many miles are on the car. It could also be due to a broken piston ring, but I wouldn't say that without knowing what kind of mileage was on the car.

Engine running rough at idle and missfiring when stepping on the gas

either the timing belt is going and that rarely fixes itself.... or buy a couple bottles of gasline antifreeze and put it in your gas tank....other possibility is coil pack.... start the motor up at night and see if you see any arcing from the ignition.
