Do you have a P0306 misfire code?

Remove the spark plug #6 and compare to the color charge below.

Do a compression test on all cylinders and check the values.
The highest and the lowest psi should be within 10%.

SOURCE: miss fire on #6 cylinder. Potential causes. Which

The #6 cylinder is the last cylinder on the right side while you stand in front of the vehicle. Firing order is 1 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2. Potential cause and best case scenario is you have a defective spark plug causing improper ignition. Another scenario is the #6 coil pack is defective. If you have not replaced the spark plugs (30,000 mile intervals), then the issue may be just the spark plug(s).

1)all spark plugs
2)do a oil change
3)spark plug wires

1.bad gas
2.spark plug and/or wire
3.distributor cap and/or rotor
4.valve adjustment
5.injector

Missing fire


a bad injector can cause a miss, you can listen to each injector with a stethoscope. It should make a rapid clicking sound. If it makes a deep thumping sound it is likely bad. also an intake leak can cause a miss at idle. also an EGR valve partially open can cause miss at idle. I always check cylinder compression when replacing plugs or coils for a miss. You need quality tech to check for above items.

Check engine light is on, they say multiple miss fire in cylcinder 6. but no one can find the problem van runs great


first do a cylinder compression test on engine to verify good engine compression this should be around 110psi to 175 psi check for vacuum leak, intake port for #6 cylindermay be leaking air, or also check coil for that cylinder, if wire and spark plug have already been changed, last replace fuel injector for that cylinder.
