How to Diagnose Your Engines Skip

Sometimes it's easy to tell if your engines got a skip. Other times its not so evident that a skip is what's causing your engine problems. Even when your know its a skip, deciding on which cylinder is the problem. This how to makes finding that problematic skip easy as pie.
Things You'll Need:
infrared thermometer
Step 1
First thing you need to do is get yourself a infrared thermometer. Sounds fancy but they are not all that expensive, you can find them for under 50 dollars. These things are handy for so many things, trust me you will wonder how you ever got along without one.

Step 2
Now you'll be putting the laser of the thermometer on the exhaust headers where they meet up to the head so make sure you have a line of site to all of your header pipe ends. This works on manifolds as well but not as good. Its still the easiest way to find a skip either way.

Step 3
Now just locate the skip. To do that start the engine and quickly go under the hood with your infrared thermometer. Check each cylinder temperature, the cylinder with the skip will be cooler than the others around it. This works great because it will show you if you have a dead skip or just a cylinder that is running a little cold, all in a matter of mins. Information like this is very valuable for fine tuning and getting the most out of your engine.

A WAG, is there water in the gas? Fuel injection systems will pass water in the fuel, if it gets past the fuel filter whereas, in a carburetor water will adhere to brass jets and block the fuel. If the filter has reached its capacity for holding water, water will get through.
In the years i was involved as a motorcycle dealer and also had an auto repair garage, when we had an engine that skipped, i would put a n old style neon timing light in the ignition circuit, either between the distributor and the coil or later at each spark plug, in turn and run the engine or drive the car or bike. If the light skipped when the engine skipped, I knew it was an ignition problem, if the light did not skip when the engine skipped, i knew it was probably fuel.
In the work you had done, you did not mention fuel filter, so I suspect some foreign material passed through and is effecting one or more injectors. A poor spray pattern can cause a skip. Run the engine skipping to get the pipes hot, shut it down quickly and using a squirt can squirt a bit of oil on each pipe and watch the smoke. The coolest pipe reveals the skipping cylinder. Pull the injector and observe for dripping and the spray pattern. If it is good, and the neon timing light did not skip on that cylinder, you may have a valve train problem.

Engine seemed to skip at about 70 mph and service engine light came on. Then seemed to skip several more times at different speeds. Ran fine. Just continued to skip as we drove.

Engine skips

When you press the clutch the engine control computer senses the clutch is in and adjusts the idle speed, maybe the idle speed control motor is dirty and sticks, this will almost feel like a skip or miss, do you have any trouble codes?
