Misfire can be more specifically diagnosed with the engine scanner than they are telling you...The code relating to " multiple engine misfire" usually implies the need for spark plug replacement. A specific code such as # 3 cylinder misfire implies a problem with the spark plug wire or individual coil pak depending on which system you have...Most chain parts stores will offer checking codes for you at no cost...

In modern cars so much can go wrong to indicate an issue and a computer in the car can get confused as to what is really occurring. In most cars a misfire indicates either an incorrect firing order, shorted wires, bad plugs, or bad coil. Since you have replaced the wires and plugs we can rule those out. Im also assuming after the second engine code you pulled #2 plug and made sure it wasnt fouled with oil, was gapped correctly, and reinserted. To produce a sufficient spark for combustion the alternator sends power to a "Coil" which is in reality a storage point that then sends an amplified electrical current down the spark plug wire to the cylinder to fire the plug. If the car is truly misfiring you will notice a rough idle, fluctuating RPM's, and lack of acceleration. If you are experiencing any of these I would look at replacing the coil. If you arent experiencing any of these I would have the code cleared again and complete one drive cycle 100 miles and then have codes read again. If you still get a Misfire error some other causes known to occur with Rio's are fuel filter issues, gas caps, and fuel injector issues. Although rare, these can cause issues with the cars fuel delivery and emissions which can confuse the sensor in the ECU. I would try injector cleaner, replace the fuel filter, and gas cap . If funds are an issue then based on symptoms I would start with injector cleaner first $3, Filter $12, Gas cap $12, Coil $48 to $200+

Remove the spark plug using a ratchet, 12" extension, and swivel spark plug removal socket of the appropriate size for your spark plug hex (5/8" or 13/16" or metric).

Check the gap and make sure it is within specs. as listed on the sticker on your car or manual, if so equipped.

Also, note that a multiple misfire can be the result of a plugged up or dirty or bad O2 sensor.

Have the car scanned by the Kia Dealer, Advance or Autozone to see if what codes you OBD-II system has.

How many miles do you have on it?

Thanks for asking Fixya.com.

How do I change glow plugs on my volvo s 60 2007


They are easy to replace once you get to them...Its kind of like changing spark plugs..First make sure engine is cold get safety glasses..,Disconnect battery ground cables..Carefully disconnect wire then plug..Do this one at a time....,Don't get confused...,Don't over tighten..Also it may be a good idea to put a very small dab of anti-seize on new plug threads...Once completed make sure all plug wires are secure with a good snug connection...Connect Battery ..,Turn ignition on but DO NOT CRANK UNTIL GLOW PLUG DASH LIGHT GOES OFF....Then start engine and perform a safety check...

2008silverado 4.3v6 has miss when you ecellrate changed plugs doing it again engine light back on


Since the engine light is back on the code is likely to help you diagnose the problem.
1. If you have a code reader for your car plug it in and it should tell you what the computer thinks the problem is.
Remember for the engine to miss it has to be loosing fuel or spark. The spark plugs are only one of the parts required to make a reliable spark in the plug as the engine is running.
2. Check the spark plug wires and the distributor internal for rust contamination around the reluctor magnet area. The 4.3 chevys are bad for this. Have someone start the car for you at night while you look under the hood for spark leakage. In the dark any wire leaking spark enough to make it miss on acceleration will flash blue lights in the dark.
3. Replace the fuel filter.
4. Check for vacuum leaks in the rubber tubing plugged in to the intake manifold.
5. Make sure the battery to engine ground cable is in good condition at both ends and tight.
6. Make sure the battery to chassis ground wire is connected clean and tight.
Good luck.

Motor turns over but will n ot start


check for spark and fuel . Check for spark by removing one spark plug wire and grounding the wire to a convenient location on the motor while cranking the engine. Be very careful though to make sure there are no fuel vapors in that area. you should see a bright spark jumping to the grounded area.

I have a 2003 civic Honda .engine cranking but wont start.Fuel and Ignition were check already no problem was found. Is it maybe because I have change the original alarm of my car to a new alarm? Do I need...


I would check your firing order, and all the stuff with the distributor, no loose connections and stuff, check the condition of all your plugs, make sure they are gapped correctly, check everything, maybe your injectors are clogged or broken? (unlikely but still check it out) then at last check for compression. All you need is fuel, spark and compression to fire. Check all cylinders to make sure they are ok on everything.

Get your tools (for removing a spark plug) ready. Try to start the engine, pumping the accelerator a little while you crank. Take a spark plug out. Is the spark plug wet with gas (smell fuel)? If so, you are getting fuel. Hook the spark plug you just took out up to the coil, lay it on the engine where it will be grounded to the metal. Get someone to crank the engine, and check for spark at the end of the plug. If there is a good spark, that eliminates another problem (don't crank the engine, or let it run too long with the plug out). If you have spark, and fuel, either the timing is way off (broken, slipped timing belt/chain), or you have no compression (internal engine).

Do you have a "Check Engine" light, or any other warning light on? Recently you make any work there or disconnected the battery? Are you thniking in Theft, Immobilizer or Passlock security alarm? Is this occurrs and the keys isn't work, its need to re-programmed, for this need to visit your Honda dealer.

Keep us updated.

Engine will not run, seems like it is not getting gas?


Spray carb spray or starter fluid into intake hose then try to start. If starts then suspect fuel pump and or fuel pump relay. If does not start check spark. Pull off spark plug wire and ground to metal make sure no fuel is present and be careful not to spark yourself, crank car while grounding out wire if no spark suspect coil, fuse, ignition control module, crank sensor, wiring, or computer.

multiple factors at play.check for spark ,pull a spark plug out and connect the spark plug wire back on the spark plug and place the plug on any ground just sitting over any metal part of engine ,try to place it somewhere visible from inside the car. crank engine and look for spark at the plug,(make sure nobody is touching it when you crank motor)ifyou have spark then is your fuel supply(fuel pump).make sure all fuses and relays are ok b-4 you take any further action.

1988 nissan pulsar wont crank


The black color of the spark plugs indicate that the engine was running rich (too much fuel). The fact that they were wet tells me that there may not have been ignition. The carb being wet may be just from flooding when you tried to start the engine.
First off you need to determine if you are getting spark. You can do this by connecting one of the plugs to a wire and grounding it to the block. Have someone crank the engine and watch the plug for spark. Blue is good yellow is week. Use care holding the plug as it can give off a nasty kick. If you don't have spark than its time to check the wires, distributor cap, rotor and so on.

Make sure the spark plug is touching a metal spot on the engine.It has to be grounded to spark.Also check to see if you are getting fuel.

Cranks but wont start


Engine Cranks But Will Not Start

For an engine to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine. Compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run.
Basic Checks:

A. Test Fuses. Test both under hood power distribution center and the fuse panel under dash. This is done with a test light tool. The test light should illuminate on both sides of the fuse, if not the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced.
B. Testing Fuel Pressure Test for proper fuel pressure with a test gauge on the fuel rail, most throttle body injection cars (TBI) are between 13 psi and 17 psi. and most (DPI) direct port inject systems are between 40 psi and 55 psi. If no or little fuel pressure is observed and there is 12 volt power present the fuel pump, the fuel pump needs replacing.
C. Checking Timing Belt Test for compression by removing a spark plug and insert a compression gauge. Crank the engine over about 5 seconds the gauge should read between 125 psi and 165 psi, if no compression is observed remove front engine cover to inspect timing belt or chain. Crank engine to observe cam rotation, if the cam does not rotate the timing belt or chain has failed. (note: if the timing belt drives the water pump it is best to replace the water pump at this time)
D. Test for Injector Pulse Remove injector connector to insert injector test light (node) or volt meter. Observe light flash or gauge pulse while cranking. If light/voltmeter doesn't respond, an ignition distributor/crank angle sensor (CKS) or an ignition module is most likely your problem.
E. Test for Ignition Spark Remove spark plug wire, insert an extra spark plug into end of wire, rest spark plug next to a ground source then crank engine. You should observe a blue spark between the spark plug gap and ground source. If no spark is observed, an ignition coil, ignition rotor or spark plug wires might have failed. (always keep hands away from engine when cranking)
