The best way to test is by swapping around coils to see if msifire moves assuming you have a specific misfire. Otherwise you will need to swap around injector to see if misfire moves.There are no specifications for resistance, you could check and compare them to eachother.

I replaced one on the no. 4 cyl. it indicated a misfire. the car is still running bad

 

Expert:  Dan replied 3 years ago.
I'd replace injector on that cylinder then assuming its the same cylinder misfiring.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Can I measure the resistance on each injector and find the bad ones?
Expert:  Dan replied 3 years ago.
If the coil in injector is bad but if its clogged then resistance will be ok.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The car is running choppy and I need to pinpoint either or or both are the problem. How can I check both to determine the problem?

 

Expert:  Dan replied 3 years ago.
You can do the resistance test but if that doesnt identify you will need to swap around injectors to see if misfire moves.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Im really scared to run the car too long because of how bad it is running. Can I do resistace test on all the coil pack and compare it to the new ones I replaced? Also doing a resistance check on the injectors and compare them too? Also after that can I hook up 12 VDC to each injector and listen for the click?
Expert:  Dan replied 3 years ago.

Yes you can do resistance tests and you can try to listen for clicking injectors if manually supplying power/ground.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
So I can do resistance test for both injectors and the Coil packs?
Expert:  Dan replied 3 years ago.
Correct, there is no specificed resistance but you can still compare to eachother.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I checked and .010-.018 oms on the injectors is normal?, what about the coil packs?
Expert:  Dan replied 3 years ago.
There are no specs for the coil packs and injectors are 8.5 to 15.5 ohms
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Also could it be the fuel pump? What is the PSI for the fuel pump on the rail?

Expert:  Dan replied 3 years ago.
Fuel pump usually causes a stall and no start condition. Do above tests first and let me know if you run into questions. You can reply at any time even after you accept. Thanks.
