Why do my cylinders keep misfiring?

The most common cause of an engine misfire when accelerating is worn-out spark plugs. When spark plugs are suffering from excessive wear, they don’t ignite the fuel in the piston cylinder when they are supposed to. This can also be caused by fouled spark plugs, a cracked distributor cap, or bad spark plug wires.

What to do if cylinders are misfiring?

Use a spark plug socket to remove the plug so you can get a good look at it. The damage you see will help you determine the cause of the misfire. If the spark plug is just old, replacing it may solve the problem. Make sure to replace and properly gap new spark plugs.

What causes a misfiring cylinder?

Another reason a cylinder may misfire is due to a loss of spark. This can be something that stops coil voltage from hopping the gap at the end of the spark plug, such as worn out or corroding parts. Damaged, worn, or bad spark plugs, or a weak ignition coil can cause a loss of spark, and therefore, a misfiring cylinder.

How does the OBD II system identify misfiring cylinders?

The OBD II system will identify the cylinder(s) that are not contributing their normal dose of power and set a code that corresponds to the cylinder’s firing order. A code P0303, for example, would tell you that the #3 cylinder is misfiring.
