Question Asked: Engine Partial Stop Fireing
March 30, 2010, 08:27 AM
One or more pistons quit firing at no predictable time, temperature or speed. Engine will resume firing within two-three miles of driving, just need to baby it along. I've relpaced all six injectors, the fuel filter, the ECM, spark plugs, plug wires, intake plenum gaskets and all fuel related o-rings on the engine. The fuel pressure is within specs. Compression is good. I've cleaned the air horn and visually inspected all wires for obvious breaks. The 'check engine' is not illuminated. I've checked for a stored code but get the condition good read out. Any other ideas? Thanks. . . Pete

I own the Eurosport stationwagon. The third row of seats gives seatbelts for eight so hauling our Boy Scouts is no problem. The 3.1 v-6 delivers plenty of torque and gets very reasonable gas mileage; close to 30mph if driving conservatively. On days while by myself, I enjoy the quick ratio rack and pinion steering and firm suspension. This car handles trail breaking very well so I enjoy agressive turns, too. The body style is timeless and vehicle entry is very easy. Visibility is great. I have a receiver hitch and pull a small trailer to haul Troop gear and hardly feel it is back there. The odometer quit about 13 years ago but I estimate there is about 320,000 miles on my car.
