Question type: Maintenance & Repair

engine seems to misfire at lower speeds, one of the plug wires was connected to the
wrong plug, this helped when connected to the right one, but it still seems to misfire at
lower speeds.

Check the condition of the wires, you might have a rip or tear.

My experience had been when installing the front plug wires and after placing them beneath that blk. plastic cover there is a tendency to pull them causing the wires to break. Recheck each wire to ensure they are good. Good luck.
