Thanks a bunch....

Mr C: this is a very good video . my sons 96 s10 had a clogged cat which made back pressure show weak valve springs . The back pressure kept exhaust valve from closing - sounded and acted like a burnt valve. the mechanical part of video compression test explained how weak springs read .he saved me from pulling heads i replaced springs no miss .i THANK you .

Replaced plug wires and plugs, distributor cap and rotary cap, and changed several sensors and It is still doing the same thing and showing the same codes. Could you help please

Infiltrator2003: Nice thorough vid

harooni22: man a misfire is a major pain in the ass

meTimetraveler: how does the PCM know there was a misfire in a cylinder ? the ox sensor? I had an exhaust rocker arm come off and the PCM through a code for that cylinder.

mixtathetrixta: Good job mate!

Jose Luis Arias: Klll

william john: my f 250 runs worse the more i drive

Alberto Lopez: My audi a4 has a rough idle, the shaking goes away when I accelerate. The dealer changed the coil packs and the spark plugs, still shakes and recently the check engine light flashes when idling. Anyone know what the most likely problem is ????? 

Bryant M: HELP Please!... 2001 S40 Volvo. I have two codes P0303 and P0304 cylinder 3 and 4. Rough idle, stall, poor gas milage, slow acceleration, etc... Both of these cylinders 3 and 4 are coils, and have to slaves wires for 1 and 2. 1-4 2-3 I switched coils to see if anything changed. It did not has the same symptoms. Plugs look "normal", fuel pressure on the line, can't find a vacuum leak, I'm stuck. I have been debating to purchase coils and wires, but they're 150+ and am not sure if that is even the problem.

Bennie Densmore: I have a 95 Honda accord. My car lights (interior and exterior) flashes every time I reach 2500 to 3000 rpm. I've disconnected the negative battery and test it using an Innova 3310 and read a .05 amp. There is know significant drop of amps. Where should I look next??? .

malaska91: is it possible to have a misfire with no codes showing?

Shafii Zuberi: I

Jose Garcia: Start by checking the spark on cylinder #2 I had the same issue on a Ford escape, it had a bad ignition coil, get rid of the misfire and then you will probably have to replace the cat as I did! Misfires kill the cat

jphritz011: Thank you!!

SombraLocs: Can someone help me out, My car is having a Type A Misfire. The check engine light would start flashing every now and then especially when driving on a steep road. I took my car to Autozone to get it checked and one of the codes were P0302 which is a Cylinder 2 misfire and the other one is a P0421 a Catalyst system efficiency below threshold. Can anybody tell me what the problems might be and where should I start first? Please I would really appreciate it.

cadzillals6: When the engine light is flashing, that is a hard misfire. This type of misfire will quickly destroy your catylitic converter. You need to have it scanned for codes, any autozone will do this free. Most common causes are bad spark plugs, bad spark plug wires, bad coils in that order. Let us know what the codes are and we can try to help.

cadzillals6: Misfire on cylinder number four.

rsanch8695: Thanks Jay! However! My instincts to re do the test at another Autozone paid off! Obviously the last tech either was not familiar with the instrument or was just plain lazy or both. The tech at the recent Azone diagnosed (with the same instrument) a mis fire in the 6th cylinder. So a new coil wire and plug will do the trick. But the 6th plug is a beast to get to so here goes the wallet upside down!. Thanks again!

cadzillals6: Daniel, Have you tried swapping injectors to se eif that is the problem? Need to check compression as well. Sears actually sells a pretty sweet compression tester for around 50 bucks,

slednck3: my 96 crown vic had grounded out because of stereo harness and all electrical components had blown and an hour later my cars got a check engine light and today not moving just idleing i got a flashing check engine light

cadzillals6: Sounds like your fuel pump check valve is leaking. Attaching a fuel pressure guage to the test port will show if it is. It should hold pressure overnight.

xadam2dudex: cars r too complex now days...it's time for electric cars

next492: P0300 check ur engine oil, if it got like chocomilk or diferent color then it means replaced head gasket, P0171 put new air filter, if it stills there then change Maf sensor P0442 change the gas gop, try these I fixed in the past this codes

cadzillals6: You need to test fuel pump output for both pressure and volume.

James Branson: How would a problematic distributor cause a random misfire? I have a 98 Sebring with a distributor that was recently changed and has been running like crap ever since then. Should I just have it replaced to stop the random misfire?

Ulysses Gladden: Awesome clear video

cadzillals6: @abaga1299 I would be happy to try. What kind of car and what is going on? You can email me directly at jay.buckley@framgrp.com

Jessie Taylor: I have a 2008 dodge avenger and the check engine light been flashing the dealer said it was a blowin head gasket so I changed it now the number four spark plug misfiring I can take it out and it fires everything could the catylitic converter be bad ???? could that cause it to misfire???
