Check the ASD (automatic shut down) relay under the hood. If it's good check fuse # F6 (30A Maxi) and see if it's blown. If it is there are a LOT of things it runs.
if there is power, change coil. if there isn't power, change battery
A fouled plug can be caused by many things. The color of the plug can give an indication of the problem. The loss of power is due to the cylinder not producing the proper amount of power. Check the plug wires, coil, and compression for that cylinder to give an indication of the problem.
bad coil pack... replace coil pack
need a new coil or coil wire if you are getting power to the coil
Could be a bad coil (each cylinder has its own) common problem
possibly the coil, it is the most common problem. what I do is remove the coil clean the spark plug and remove the coil and spark plug from the cylinder next to it and swap it clear the code and drive it if the same cylinder triggers light you the problem is not ignition , on the other hand, if the swapped cylinder triggers light you now know that you need coil and plugs.
The 3.5L has a coil on each cylinder.The 3.5L has a coil on each cylinder.
Probably the easiest thing to do is take the cylinder coil and swap it with another cylinder. Start the car and see if the misfire moves to the new cylinder, If it does the problem is either the coil or the plug boot. If it doesn't move, check the spark plug for breaks in the porcelin and plug gap. next check the connection to the cylinder coil. It is most likely the coil but they are a little pricey so it's worth it to take the time to troubleshoot a little. Good luck to you.
it might be next to something hot. or there is to much power going to that coil. it might be next to something hot. or there is to much power going to that coil.
get a new coil. a coil on an engine is designed to take a little power and make it into BIG power. also check wires and connections going to coil. your problem sounds like the coil though. good going in, nothing coming out. there's your problem.
I had the same problem and went ahead and replaced cylinder 1 coil and all the spark plugs and it worked.
Moisture in the COP (coil over plug) boot/assembly, bad coil, bad plug, bad injector, poor fuel pressure, poor cylinder compression. Or damaged coil boot causing the coil to flash over.
The most common reason for a misfire is the ignition coil that is connected to the sparkplug on top of the problem cylinder.
Bad ignition coil? Common problem each cylinder has it own coil located at the top of the spark plug
If theres a miss fire on a cylinder you check engine light will tell you.. Switch the coil from that cylinder to another and siwtch that coil to the cylinder that the computer says is missifing. If the cylinder you put your suspected coil on miss fires then you know its a bum coil.
Replace the ECU.
After testing the coil for proper resistance and finding they had the proper values, I swapped them from one side to the other. The coil with no spark still had no spark. A new coil was installed, problem solved.
I'm not a mechanic / technician but it could be the spark plug , the coil for the # 3 engine cylinder ( you have the Coil On Plug ignition system with ( 8 ) individual coils - one coil for each engine cylinder / spark plug ) , a problem with the fuel injector for that engine cylinder not delivering the proper air/fuel mixture , or some other problem . The engine cylinder locations are numbered : firewall 4 - 8 3 - 7 2 - 6 1 - 5 front of Ford Expedition
Change the wire, or coil plug
cylinder 1 misfire, is probably a bad ignition coil, it plugs into the spark plug as a coil wire unit, if you have a v6 your #1 cylinder will start on the passenger side and #6 will end on the driver side if its a 4 cylinder #1 will be closer to the radiator and 4 will be closer to the front window, bad coil causes loss of power, and just a shakey ride, it can easily be replaced and cost about 30.00 bucks also think about changing your plugs while you're at it.
When an ignition coil goes bad the car will not run right, or not at all. An intermittent coil will cause shudder, or a jerking motion. When the coil has no output then the cylinder that the coil feeds cant burn the fuel and cause power.
It sounds like the Camry has lost power to the coil. Check the wiring from the coil to the power, and check the coils ground circuit. Either of these can cause the problem.
1) Have vehicle scanned to determine which cylinder is misfiring 2) Does vehicle have C.O.P. (coil on plug)? usually a bad ignition coil on that cylinder 3) Remove spark plug from that cylinder and do a compression test to determine if problem is internal to the engine (bad valve or ring).
my best guess without actually looking at it would be the ignition coil. sometimes as they get warm the coil can "go open" making it harder to start. try this to see, when the engine is overnight cold, locate the ignition coil by following the coil wire from the center of the distributor cap to the ignition coil. take a hair dryer and blow it on the coil until it is warm to hot to the touch(a heat gun works better and much faster) try to start the car. if you have the same problem as when the engine is hot, you've just identified the problem. a bad coil. the procedure is the same if there is no distributor cap except that there are 2 coils on the drivers side of the cylinder head instead of just one. try the same test just do them one at a time to see which is the problem.
This means that your vehicle is missing on cylinder 3. You will need to have your coil changed to fix this problem
