Try a quality injector cleaner if EFI or clean carby otherwise
missing is more from injector problems than spark plugs

2000 Ford mustang. engine skipping and check engine light flashing. I have checked plugs and wires and they seem fine.


It sounds like you have a misfire. Does it miss more under a load or does it miss primarily,at idle. If under load, it is likely ignition related. Spray water on the wires and coils with the engine running. If they are carbon tracking it will be very obvious as the engine will miss worse.

At a steady speed motor skips pulls good on hills seems get worse every day


is this skip like a miss does it run rough at an idle try changing the plugs and wires cap and rotor and see if this helps also run a good fuel system treatment through the vehicles intake and gas tank and clean it out could have a lot of carbon build up in the engine this usually helps with performance issues.

I have a 2000 neon with a 2 liter, it has a skip in the motor.it is a pretty bad miss i can barely take off. i hold the pedal then after a few seconds(5-10) it finally takes off but with no power a bad...


on the plugs that you changed did you notice a black carbon trace on the ceramic part of either one of the plugs,if there is this means the wire is firing to the ceramic part of the plug, you will need plug wires, if any mark on plugs you just installed replace them also
