almost done taking care of my misfire issue...

maybe i have found the problem.... why would just my number 6 cyl plug be all fouled? Its fouled all teh way up the threadings too :(


The rest of them look good, its jsut that one plug.

Any ideas why?



I am doing a compression test tommorow to hopefully see if anything is discovered by that.

Thanks all


maybe this can get taken care of:( i thought it was cured once but its still missing a little bit, now if only i can get rid of that little bit i will be straight.

Well, playing off of your last comment, I'd wonder if compression is not so good on that cylinder. Numbers 5 & 6 have been known to come in lower than the other 4...
Check the simple stuff- coil clip, the plug itself may be suspect too.

Agreed ^^^^. Are you throwing any codes? 14 perhaps? If so, then it is probably the coil connector.

Also, what did the plug look like? Was it wet? If you were getting no spark then the plug might be wet/have fuel on it, but it not then it may very well be a compression issue.


Good luck man.

They can get fouled for several reasons.

Nope sorry not throwing any codes.

Just a misfire code..... i believe its a code 34, "turbo malfuncftion" but i am sure thats happening due to the surging when the misfire happens.


COMPRESSION CHECK TONIGHT! Argh i am gonnna figure this out.
