My 1999 Subaru Impreza sport wagon had a misfire in cylinder 2, after I changed all four spark plugs and fuel filter the problem got worse. Now the throttle lags and misfires only happen when the car accellerates from 0 to 20, then the problem disappears. When I was changing the spark plugs, there was also oil completely coating the outside of the rubber gaskets that plug over the spark plug, is this due to a cracked valve cover gasket?
Check the firing order tu might have installed it differently, clean the Hi-TENSiON wire terminals on the distributor cap and to spark plugs, oxidation makes contacts to these points might have attributed to the problem!\012The oil must have leaked f ... Subaru Impreza

Took our tahoe in for oil change they also put in fuel injector cleaner since the we have had a hard idle problem that happens between 0 to 5 miles an hour then occasional it dies after you first start it. what do you thin is wrong we change the spark plugs to bosch plugs and new wires and a new fuel filter but it still did the same thing. We had it read at and it is still saying 8 is the problem so we put in a new silinode what do you think?
Most likely the fuel injector is the problem. ... 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe

Ok i recently changed spark plugs on my 1994 buick skylark. when i was done changing plugs i started car up and smelled strong exhaust smell. so i checked the plugs wires and found out that when i pulled the spark plug boot off the distributor number 3 and 6 there is no spark at all.....so what do i do now. the car runs but is going on 4 working spark plugs...whats wrong with it.. the engine is 3.1 liter.
Did you mean coil the 1994 3.1 did not use a distributor , sounds like a bad coil pack and cylinders #3 and #6 do use the same coil. I would also check 3 and 6 plug wires this system is a waste spark design meaning when # 3 coil f ... 1994 Buick Skylark

My 98 Cavalier was runnning great all the sudden every now and again it takes a couple turns to start, so i took it to Auto zone, they ran a test said everything looked good, and that I should change spark plugs maybe gas cap. So i did soon as i changed the spark plugs now the car runs very rough, and even dies while im driving it, and is also backfiring?? Ive never had this problem before i changed the spark plugs? Any ideas??
My guess would be two of the plug wires are on the wrong plugs.The original problem could be a faulty fuel pump relay or the check valve in the fuel pump. ... 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
How do you change the spark plugs in a 2004 Toyota Tacoma with a 3.4 V6. The driver side has plugs with the wires leading to the other side?s plugs (passenger) that has a "coil box or something? over each plug. What is the easiest way to get the box off and then the plug out? Also on the driver side does the spark plug wire cap just pop off? It looks like a flat cap with the wire leading out. No need to turn? I have changed any plugs but never seen a box over the a plug. Any suggestions?

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L. About a couple of months ago, my dad did a tune-up on it: changed the spark plugs, the O2 sensors, and the fuel filter. However, recently my car has started to stall. For example, I was driving, and was about to turn onto another street. In the middle of the intersection, my car "shut off". The engine died because the gages all went down to 0, the power steering went out and the brakes were hard to push, but all the electricity was on like the radio

I have a 1998 GMC Sonoma, 2.2 liter, 4cyl, 2 wheel drive vehicle. Recently the check engine light has come on. When checked on computer diagnostic it was discovered that alarm was triggered by the knock sensor. In a case like this, is it a serious engine problem indicated or perhaps the spark plugs need to be changed? What is mostly likley the issue and how do i fix it. I normally like to do most of the minor repairs myself. Thankyou.
Try replacing the plugs. if the spark is weak,the fuel may not burn correctly.\015\012if the timing is off,it can do it too.\015\012low octane will cause it as well as carbon build up.\015\012i would put a fuel cleaner in the gas,ch ... 1998 GMC Sonoma
