My 1996 Hyundai is only running on 3 cylinders how do I find out which cylinderits missing on?

I am curious, how do you know it's missing?

One way (safest way) is with a temperature read
er: with the engine running, aim the reader at each exhaust port. The missing cylinder will be colder than the others.

Another old-school way: (electrical shock hazard) with the engine running, pull the plug wire of each cylinder, either at the plug end or the other end, one at a time. The missing cylinder will be revealed when there is no change in the engine's sound.

2002 Lincoln LS. Now im getting PO301, PO316, P1000, P1565.

Code 301 is a miss on cylinder one.
Code 316 is for a miss on startup which would be connected to code 301.
Code 1000 means the computer self-test did not finish.
Code 1565 is specific to Ford products and means the cruise control system failed to engage - command switch is out of range.
Someone will need to check cylinder one to find the main problem. Code 301 means the cylinder is not producing power but not why. It could be ignition, fuel, or mechanical.

Audi a4 1.8t random miss fire

Check out the site for NHTSA complaints. I believe there was a defect in the cylinder heads for this engine. The redesigned heads have a different suffix letter than the stock heads.

For a time, the Manufactuer was paying for the repair.

My Ford F250 has an intermittent miss. I have replaced the spark plugs ,wires, cap and rotor. When I replaced the Spark plugs the miss went away for 1 day. The next day the miss came back when I started...

You can find the miss by starting the engine and pulling one plug at a time. when you find the one that doesn't change how the engine runs, there is your problem area. things to do are, first I would switch the wire and see if the miss goes away. If it doesn't then pull the plug and see if it is fouled out. do a compression test on that cylinder. if the compressionis low you can spray some wd40 in the cylinder and retest. if the pressure comes up then the rings are bad, if it doesn't then you have a valve problem.let me know

Spray the intake manifold on cylinder number where it bolts to the head with intake cleaner and see if the rpm's change and the miss goes away temporarily.There was a problem at the factory with the intake gasket being creased on cylinder number 1. This issue tends to be a lean misfire issue.

Need to pull codes to determine which cylinder is missing . The most common concern is ignition coils and spark plugs on your model.

F150 4x4 Engine stared missing after replacing spark plugs !

im assuming this is a coil over plug setup so it has no plug wires? if your plug was burnt off sounds like it was lean...mabe you have a week injector on number 8. also check the the plug on the coil and make sure it is in tight. checking the porceline on the plug would b a good idea too, only takes a hairline crack to make it not work
