Picked up liquid wrench, engine code went off. Misfire in cylinder 4. Once it cools down I'm going to check the plugs. And if not I'm going to replace my cap and rotor and plugs and see if it clears it up. Any other suggestions?

Re: Please help me

I was recommending white lithium grease in a spray form, You can even find it in Walmart's automotive section. Before buying parts, I'd definately look at the plug first. Didn't you have that happen early on?

I had the squeaking happen early on, I sprayed the white lothium grease all over the bearing and it still squeaks like hell, I wonder if Conrad's was wrong about the bearing. Being bad and the u-joints are the cause of the problem. I replaced the cap and rotor today. I didn't reset the computer bit it seems like the engine is running better ill wait till the code goes off by itself

Does this look like a bad plug? I'm going to replace all of them anyway. It has corrosion on the plug, the truck gave out again today on The highway. I pulled over, checked my inertia switch, it was down, my terminals are fine everything. I'm going to go through that wiring diagram in a few minutes. I sat and waited with te key on the on position with the hood up. I waited and sure enough the pumps eventually came on, I heard the relay click over.

I wonder if that's what the ticking is, maybe my valves? And my temp guage does. Not work. So maybe the engine just gets too hot. Shuts off and won't start maybe? But it happens completely random. Maybe sticking thermostat or something? Does that sound possible?

Re: Please help me

The plug just looks old, center electrode worn and the ground strap worn and just has a lot of deposits on it.
None of it is signs of overheating.
A whitesh ground strap is normal in a fuel injection motor but yours has deposits making it look whiter.
The reason the ground is white in a FI motor is because the OX sensor keeps the A/F ratio on the lean side all the time as compaired to a Carbed motor that cannot control it very well.
If you know the fuel pump has stopped, you know what the problem is.
In older trucks the wire harness and gounds can become an issue.
Time to get crackin and fix it.
Good luck.

It stops occasionally osk what the heck. I wonder if I can replace the harness. But this brings me back to square one. What turns on the pumps, the ignition. When I break down my pumps won't come on. I can sit there and wait and eventually they come on, inetia switch is fine. I'm thinking either the relay is opening up. Or something with my ignition. Where would I start in the ignition? The ignition switch and what else? Thanks for the reply. The new cap and rotor plus a new plug fired my piston by the way. New wires soon
