Need more detail on the failure report. Supply the readings, more vehicle information, vehicle's maintenance history, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Could be anything from a bad spark plug to bad wires, bad coil, crank sensor, etc.

See the top of the forum for posting rules, guidelines and required information for us to help.

How much did you fail by and what measurement failed?

Have the wires been changed? Mileage on the vehicle? Last time it saw any major service? etc, etc, etc.

Need as much detail to be able to help.
