Misfire #8 cylinder

this has individual coils for each cylinder, correct? Why not check for spark out the number 8 coil. if there is no spark swap it with another coil. If there is still no spark out the coil than the coil is bad. If the coil starts to work in the swapped coil location and the swap coil will not work in the number 8 position than there is a problem the either the wiring or the PCM.

What causes a 1994 Chevy Silverado 2500 with a

that would be bad coil packs ,try switching coil pack cylinder 3 with 4or 5 and see if miss fire code changes if it does it's the coil pack .or its possible where they plug in at the bottom(there should be a small oval rubber gasket on coil pack to keep out corrosion or possible not making a good connection (loose) ,oil getting in there ,you can use a timing light to narrow it down faster, pull your plugs for those cylinder and inspect for damage or fouling.and lastly check your wires if any brakes or crakes and that they fit on plugs tightly.

Why am I getting code # P 0308

I have your vehicle as a 97 Ford Expedition...Is this correct? Reason I ask is that Ford uses Coil-On-Plug and you said "I changed the wires"...Which would mean all eight coils were changed...P0308 is telling you the ECM is seeing a fault on cylinder #8...I would strongly suspect a bad coil for that cylinder...Question; Did you change all eight coils? If not change #8...saailer

Codes P0325, P0330, P0300, P0308, P1404, P0058. I know. ..just went to get my oil change the mechanic told me he had found the engine light with those codes. It's a 2005 Dodge Durango V8-287 4.7L SOHC. I...

These codes are telling you that you are having cylinders misfiring..And the knock sensor is picking up detonation knocks..with all these codes your engine must be running really bad.. Start by checking your spark plugs.. spark plug wires, coils.. EGR system. If you allow this condition to continue it will ruin youir cats.. a very costly repair. Check to see which cylinder is misfiring.. One of the codes indicated it was #8 cylindler. run the engine and disconnect the spark plug.. if there is no change or very little change in how the engine is running.. try moving the wire to another plug and moving that plug wire to the #8.. If the Problem travels with the wire.. its the wire.. if #8 still has the problem.check the plug and coil... Keep looking until you find the ofending cylinders and repair them.. Check to make sure the hoses are hooked up to your EGR and it is functioning... post a comment here and let us know how you are doing.

Code reads misfiring on cylinder 8. where is cylinder 8 on a 2004 ford epedition

The spark plug wires might have the numbers on them. My Freestar original wires did.

From another web page

Probably at the rear (closest to firewall) on the driver's side.

Could be spark plug, ignition wire or coil (or coil pack).

The sensor for the crankshaft position may be loose or misaligned. You may have a rust spot on the crankshaft interferring with the ability to pick up the #5 position.

Check out your alternator as stray electrical voltage will interfere with the pulses needed to fire individual plugs. Try WD40 on the wires to the coils(plugs) as stray voltage may jump to another plug.

You fixed what you identified, but how about injector pulses? Could easily misfire and give same effect as sparkmiss. You may need to get loaner tools from Autozone or others to test injectors with the lightbulb you insert in the injector harness.

I hope my solution is helpful.
