Hi, My Name is***** have over 20 years experience repairing vehicles. I am a ASE Certified Master Auto Technician. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating please let me know.

My immediate thoughts are that you have a bad plug wire or cracked spark plug. Do you have a spray bottle and an assistant?

I do

OK, SO fill your spray bottle with water. if it adjustable set to mist. have your assistant get in drivers seat place foot firmly on brake pedal and place in gear. reverse is preferable. give just a little gas. spray the wires with water and see if you can find spark escaping. If you do I suggest the plug and wire get replaced.
