View Full Version : Cylinder miss fire need help

Thanks for looking at my post and thanks if you respond.
My #2 cylinder is misfiring and I can't seem to diagnose the problem. I have checked the compression which reads 100+, changed the fuel injector and checked the wires that connect the injector, changed the spark plug, changed the spark plug wire and the coil pack is producing spark.
If anyone has any idea to what could be causing the misfire it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Based on what I've experienced in the past, engine misfire is often is caused by leaking spark plug wire. It's odd since you made a replacement of your spark plug wire set (http://www.drivewire.com/part/ignition-system/spark-plug-wire-set/) which should hinder any misfiring. You probably need to have an inspection of the newly installed spark plug and make sure there is no defect whatsoever. Hope that helps.

I am getting the same issue with mine but #3. I have changed plugs and injector. Next is wires and injector seal (Part # 16698AA110) in the head to see.
