Possibly, but which wires? It is unlikely, though. Crossed wires would be much more likely to prevent your car from starting or from running after it begins to fire rather than cause it to die after it is started up and has gone into "run" mode.

Several things can cause your car to stall and shake when you stop. Replacing the spark plugs and spark plug wires may cure the problem.

Damaged wiring or sensor causing confusing information sent to the ECM.

My guess would be that you have incisors that are not straight and the crossing of wires will bring them into proper alignment as well as make them the same "length" in the mouth.

Many things can cause this problem. Spark plugs and/or Spark Plug wires are 2 of the most frequent problems. Has your check engine warning light come on? You should have the engine fault codes checked. Auto Zone does this for free as do other parts suppliers. If the engine misses, then the computer senses this and at low speed or stopping the engine will stall. I hope this helps

Many things can cause your engine to stall while driving. Running out of fuel will obviously cause your car to stall. A transmission fluid leak, causing your car to run out of transmission fluid will cause your car to stop where it is at. If your car battery dies your engine will stop. This could be from a bad alternator or from corrosion or bad/loose connection. In the fuel line, a bad fuel pump, not allowing fuel into the engine would cause engine failure. as could a clogged fuel filter. Other possible causes for your car to stall include Bad spark plug wires, problems with sensors, ignition problems, plugged exhaust system, starter relay problems or problems with your vehicles computer system.

A 1998 Altima may stall at 2500 rpm's over a bad spark plug or plug wires.

Make sure you have the wires on the right plugs. Also check to make sure you didn't mess up the coil wires.

You may have some bare wires that are shorting out on the clutch pedal. Get under the dash and check it out.

Possibly but I would check all the engine, body and manifold earths first then the coil. Plugs and wires tend to make the engine misfire rather than stall, although it's not impossible that multi-failure through age would cause stalling

# Idle speed incorrect # Fuel filter clogged and/or water and impurities in fuel system # Faulty plugs and/or wires # Vacuum leak

The cracked plug can cause the wires to spark and cause a fire. When the wires are plugged into it where the crack is the wires can touch the socket and cause the fire.

Yes, check the connection to the starter and the spark plug wires first and replace if needed.

There could be a few reasons why your truck would stall like that. 1)Check your spark plugs and wires 2)Your mass air flow sensor may be dirty or going out and needs to be replaced 3)Check your butterfly valve and your intake manifold, they could be dirty or have alot of build ups. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with your spark plugs.

No. A worn timing chain or belt would cause timing to jump.

A common cause is for there to be broken wires in the harness between the hinges to the door.A common cause is for there to be broken wires in the harness between the hinges to the door.

check plugs and wires, and the fuel filter for proper installation. Fuel filters have a directional arrow on them, to indicate which way to install them. If it is in backwards, that can cause fuel starvation and stalling under load, such as when you are accelerating.

Changing the plugs and plug wires correctly has nothing to do with nor can it cause an oil leak.

I would suspect a leaking brake booster. When you apply the brakes, the extra vacuum needed, causes the engine to stall. Check the brake booster vacuum line and the booster itself. You also might want to replace all vacuum lines if the car is over 10 years old.

i would like to know what would cause the miss firing in Chevy Malibu

What year is it? it could be the coil, the coil will break down when it gets hot. And then be Ok after it cools off.

it is out of time or the plug wires are connected incorrectly.
