Cylinder misfire

Asked by Feb 09, 2017 at 04:02 PM about the 2002 Mazda Protege5 4 Dr STD Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I keep getting a cylinder 3 misfire on my p5. I just
changed the spark plugs, all could and wires, fuel
injectors and cover gasket. Any ideas on what it
could be?

How about the coil pack?

Yea I changed them both


What does the #3 plug look like?

It's brand new as well, /9 I'd say like any other plug and wire?


I am just wondering if it looks burnt or black or has some indication of an abnormal situation. Try pulling the #3 plug and looking at it once you have some miles on the plug.
