Hello, I'm Cam.

Wow you have done a great deal on this.

Have you only been looking at the code that sets or a misfire graphic?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


misfire graph... with a tech 2... only cylinder number 5 is missing

Expert:  Gm Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
Wow, sorry to ask this, but I need to know. You are checking third cylinder back on the drivers side?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

lol! yes im sure... 3rd cylinder on drivers side

Expert:  Gm Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
Ok, just brain storming, did you also swap the entire wire harness for the coils from passengers to drivers side?

Is it a dead miss or intermittent miss at idle?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

dead miss... yes i swapped the harness with a know working one

Expert:  Gm Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
How is the spark on the coil with a spark tester?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

strong

Expert:  Gm Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
Same as the #3?


Thanks for putting up with this, I just need to catch no fully.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


yes

Expert:  Gm Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
Ok, do you still have the valve cover off?

Did you measure the rocker are travel?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

no.. how would i measure the travel?

Expert:  Gm Tech (Cam) replied 2 years ago.
Dial indicator. I am wondering if the lifter is pumping up and keeping the valve open.

Otherwise do a dynamic compression test which is with the engine running and the gauge in.
