    See if you have spark across the plug to the cylinder on both cylinders to determine which cylinder in't firing? I'm not sure how you tested spark plugs?

Does it have a Power Commander on it? If so, eliminate it and try that. Or it could be the crank sensor or coil.

Did you crank over and check spark on both cylinders too eliminate ignition problems put a plug in the dead cylinder and crank over check for good spark be careful to not touch plug while cranking so as not to get shocked..i would do a compression test to make sure there is no major mechanical problems both cylinders should be within about 10 pounds of each other ... if you have low compression it will have to be tore apart to find cause,,bad rings burnt piston head gst.etc.

Rpm problems with no check engine light on


If the RPM is high check for a vacuum leak. Examine all vacuum hoses for cracking or disconnections. If no problem is found, spray carburetor cleaner on the intake manifold and any other gasketed areas on the top of the engine. If, when spraying, the engine RPM fluctuates, then suspect a gasket leak where the spray is entering the engine. Also check throttle body for sticking. Clean it with carburetor cleaner.

Low RPM could indicate a clogged fuel filter, low gas, dirty or bad fuel injectors. If engine idle is low because it is running poorly (e.g., a misfire), check engine for misfire. Misfires can be caused by bad spark plugs, bad spark plug wires, bad fuel injectors, a bad coil pack, low compression in a cylinder, etc. Check the obvious cheapest things first.

If RPM is varying up and down, check Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) for sticking or obstructions. You may need professional help at this point.

Head gasket or intake manifold gaste again 96 k1500 5.7 vortec. starts runs idles and drives rough it likes to **** while trying to drive almost as if it wants to stall out. i put my scanner on it and


The website has software that looks for obscene words.
I would think a compression test would show if the cylinder is having mechanical problems. And yes the intake or head gasket could be leaking again, especially if the intake or head were warped or cracked.
Have you checked fuel pressure ?
Does the spark plug for cylinder 5 show signs of coolant leaking into the cylinder ?

Honda Accord 1994 Rough Idle, often miss cylinder 2-3 changed the distributer, the coil, spark plug, spark wire cleaned the egr valve, pcv valve, vaccum I noticed the engine miss the cylinder 2 and 3


Sounds like a dirty Throttle Body and dirty IAC (Idle Air Compensator) valve. Get some good Throttle Body cleaner remove the flexible hose at the Throttle Body spray it and wipe it very very clean an old tooth brush works good for getting in there.

Now remove the IAC from the side of the throttle body, careful with the gasket if you want to reuse it. Spray it down good inside moving the valve back and forth as you do let it soak for a few minutes and clean it again. Blow it out with some compressed air and reinstall it. Put some throttle body/injector cleaner in the fuel tank.

Keep us updated.

My 650 csr is not running on all fours i determed this mostly by the tempeture of my header pipes three are very hot while 1 is barley warm, i checked for spark and it seems to be ok, this is the left...


Hi there,
You will need to do some diagnosing of the problem. Some things to check
  • compression check across all cylinders. Low compression(less than 100 lbs in a cylinder will prevent it from firing. They should all be with 20 pounds of each other.
  • carby to that cylinder may have a clogged air passage or jet.
  • try a new plug in that cylinder.
  • check for air leaks about the problem cylinder air intake. Use aerosol carb cleaner to spray about the manifold gaskets and carb mount. The revs will change if there is an air leak.
MOst probably you will need to strip and clean down the carbs if you have good compression and spark. Fuel is the only thing left :) Sometimes running some fuel system cleaner additive will also resolve the issue for you without tearing down the carbies. Goodluck regards robotek

White smoke from tailpipe, running poorly.


Blown head gasket for sure if its a petrol engine.

If its diesel then its overfuelling.

spray carb cleaner on the intake manifold near cylinder 1... common problem is the intake manifold gasket leaks vacuum causing a misfire...the not starting could be due to a faulty crank sensor
