Hi there,

Is it No.5 or No.6, your info above says 5 then 6?

Have you swapped everything including the injector to other cylinders, and it still misfires on this cylinder?

Have you done a compression test with all spark plugs out?


Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Sorry. Number 6. Yes done compression test.
Expert:  Gary replied 4 months ago.


You say engine mount replaced, and now misfiring on cylinder 6.

Only one mount or both, if only one, which side?

Is this a V8?


Expert:  Gary replied 4 months ago.

Hi again,

Do you still need help with this misfire problem?

I hope my advice has been of assistance to to you.

Kind regards
