My dog shewed on the cables of the ABS unit. ABS and brake light came on. Got under truck and reconnected the chewed cables, but the light didn't turn off. Suddenly I began having a misfire on piston #6. Changed plugs, swapped coils, changed coil connector plug, checked for air leaks, compression, injector, and nothing. The misfire continues. I truly need help solving this mystery.
Thanks,
Rene C

Good evening,

I would check the fuel pressure to be sure it is not low. Low pressure from a weak fuel pump will cause the misfire.

What was the compression? It needs to be 140-160 pounds.

Hi Roy, thanks for responding. Compression is at 149 lbs. Could there be a relationship between the ABS module and the number six cylinder misfire?
