My chech engine light came on as I was driving down the highway. I took it to a mechanic and he hooked his ob1 I think computer up to it. He said the only thing that showed up on the comp. Was that the third cyclinder was missing.
I took the 3rd cyclinder electrical plug off the coil and the engine stayed the same. So that lead me to belive it was either the coil or the plug. I moved the coil over to the next cylinder and moved that one to the 3rd cylinder and it still did the same thing. Ran fine even after I unplugged it. So it must be the plug right. I changed the plug, gapped it to.44 and torque the plug to 16 ft. Lbs. The check engine light is still on. Or do I have to take it to the mechanic and have him reset the light. Sorry for the long story.
