    Did gap according to manual(0.04) and did one at a time and also rechecked order afterwards. Seating on wiring seems good but still idling bad. Just trying to do routine maintanence. Thank you for the tips.

Assuming the plugs and wires are made for your car and not just generic plugs and wires. Is the gap correct on the plugs? Did you remove and install one wire at a time? (firing order) Are the wires seated properly on the plugs? Why did you change in the first place? Misfire or just regular maintenance? You should also change the cap and rotor.

My accord cylider 2 misses at idle what can be he problem?


If you replace the plugs,the ones that were made for your vehicle. And possibly spark plug wires, it should make quite a difference. Good-Day! It could be a injector making its rough idle on cylinder 2, But do above first!

replace fuel filter, clean fuel injectors.could have bad fuel, do a code scan before buying new parts.faulty egr valve or faulty engine coolant temperature sensor cause engine run poorly.replace spark plugs and wires because if spark plug wires is bad or spark plug and ignition coil is bad that will cause rough idling misfiring and stalling you have dead cylinder not firing properly..

Jerking/jumping while driving


An automobile's ignition system may work fine while idling but fail during acceleration. Problem areas to be inspected include the spark plugs, spark plug wires and vacuum hoses. Car owners should look for spark plugs that are covered in oil or sediment or damaged, spark plug wires that have damaged insulation, and vacuum hoses that are unplugged or leaking. Fuel Problems
  • The use of a fuel additive that contains both fuel injector cleaner and water remover can fix minor problems due to water in the gas and fuel injector clogs. A fuel pressure gauge can also be used to test the injection system to assure proper pressure.
While most acceleration problems are likely caused by problems with the plugs, wires or fuel, a variety of sensors and other components can cause similar problems. a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ) will cause causes transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on takeoff, and surging while going down highway.
good-day ! check and or clean maf sensor if need be. you can by the maf sensor cleaner at most auto parts stores.

I have a 92 Honda Accord, what causes oil around the spark plug. and how do I fix it. Would it also mke the vehicle run bad?


1. Worn or broken rings on that cylinder
2. Valve guides or seals worn on that cylinder
3. To fix the rings you will have to remove the head and sump (Remove the motor from the car if you cannot remove the sump with it in the car)
4. Yes it will make your car run bad

I need a diagram for a spark plug wires on a 99'


start with the serpentine belt side of the car (passenger) the first plug hole will be #1 then 2-4 as you work your way to the drivers side as Im guessing this is a 4 cylinder. The coil pack on the top of the engine has all the plug wires coming out of it and should be numbered 1-4 go accordingly from there.
