Mazda Protege Misfires Under Load

(24 reports)

Misfires under load (acceleration) can be caused by leaky spark plug boots. When a spark plug boot leaks, it allows the spark to arc, or jump, to the cylinder head. New spark plug wires will be needed.

Misfires only during heavy acceleration. This began after replacing one coil and 4 spark plugs. no solution as of yet. -
Engine chugs, jerks or bucks. The idle is rough and car often refuses to start. It takes several attempts for ignition to take place. Got a P0304 code and replaced Cylinder 4 coil. Also adjusted the idle. Have yet to notice any results. -
