Engine Performance problem
1997 Ford Thunderbird V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 71,000 miles
Hey guys, just purchased this 97 t-bird for my daughter to drive back / forth to school. Soon as it starts, the servic e engine light comes on, then after 20sec it begins to flash, then after a period stays on (quits flashing) then the cycle repeats. I took the car to autozone to get the code read. Code says, cylinder #2 misfired. No other codes found. Car is running really rough, In my old V8's one cylinder mis-firing wouldn't cause a V* to run so rough. Anyway, at highway speed its not as noticable, but at idle its rough. I know very little about these t-birds and what common problems they might have. Best guess, am I looking at a fuel injector, plug / plug wire, or something else. The engine idles rough at about 600 RPMs. I don't believe cylinder #2. Is firing at all. Best guess, on how I should preceed? Thanks guys
have the same problem?
