Re: just bought a 97 t-bird, but has service engine light?
UPDATE on problem. My dad tried to do me a favor and took my daughters t-bird, over to a local shade-tree. He tried changing the spark plug, installed a new fuel injector, changed the plug wire... but still cylinder #2 has a mis-fire. that is the only code the guys at autozone could pull off of it.He said the coil was firing, but could not explain why the car has a miss.He did a compression check, and all cylinders have good compression. the mechanic noticed that the fuel injector, spark plug and wires, appeared to have been recently changed, as if somebody else had been fighting this same problem, but i guess they couldn't figure it out. I really need to get this t-bird on the road, my daughter loves this car.
I'm thinking maybe a bad computer, or perhaps some type of a sensor. Maybe a fuel filter? At this point, i don't know...Any ideas? I may still install a new set of plugs and wires, but now I'm doubtful that will fix it.
