It could be one or both of the items you discussed. In addition, did you change the rotor when you changed the cap. If the cylinders have individual coils the coil could be weak as well.

96z71-4.3 number one cyl misfire I have changed plugs,wires ,dist cap,rotor button put new distributor#1 injector this truck runs right sometimes and sometimes it dont


Is that what you are reading as the code ? To verify this fault have the engine running, with an insulated pair of long nose pliers and remove plug wire from number one spark plug. Let me know if the engine pitch changes.

My 88 cherokee has a miss at around 40 mph. any solutions?


Check for a shorting spark plug wire when the engine is under load. Get a spray bottle of water, and mist some water on the plug wires from the dist. cap to the spark plugs. Rev the engine, and you might see a blue spark shorting to the outside of the spark plug or to the cylinder head. If that checks out, check under the dist. cap for any oxidation on the contacts, or hairline cracks in the cap. Any of these things will give you a misfire under load.

1)all spark plugs
2)do a oil change
3)spark plug wires
3)distributor cap and rotor

note misfire can be cause by:
1.bad gas
2.spark plug and/or wire
3.distributor cap and/or rotor
4.valve adjustment
5.injector
6.off timing
7.ECM
8.bad wiring(power, ground or feed line)

I HAVE 2002 ISUZU AXIOM WITH MULTIPLE MISFIRE. I HAD IT SCANNED AND IT SAID MULTIPLE CYLINDER MISFIRE. SO I CHANGED THE SPARK PLUGS. STILL THE SAME. ONE CYLINDER WAS DEAD. DID A COMPRESSION TEST ON THAT...


Probably you have a cracked or otherwise bad Distributor Cap. I would have changed the dist. cap and rotor first, and probably the wires too. You said you changed the boots, did that include the wires?

Pay attention to the order of wires before removing from cap. Draw yourself a diagram.
Are you sure you returned the plug wires to correct plug?

Coil 8 misfire


It if is misfiring on one cylinder. The replace the plug wire first. Make sure plug is good.
If two cylinders are misfiring, then you will want to replace the cap, rotor, or coil pack depending on what you have.

Hi, I have a 1997 Porsche 993. Motronic 5.2 M07. I am getting these fault codes 1) 62 misfire emissions-relvant 2) 51 Cylinder 2 misfire emissions-relevant) 3) 54 Cylinder 5 misfire ...


misfire :-------- try checking your 02 sensors /fuel pump and filter.

for 51 cylinder misfire :---
Change the coil. Period. Very easy to remove from the vehicle if it's a 4 cyl. Follow that spark plug wire from the spark plug to the other end. What it's attached to you should replace
for 54 cylinder 5 misfire :---First you have to eliminate the most obvious problems, like spark plug and spark plug wire. If you replace those and you still have a misfire, then it's a good idea to look for a vacuum leak in the intake manifold
