    Hi I have a 2000 v8 ford explorer that started misfireing when it is first started. When trying to accelerate there is now a lot of shaking and loss of power. I bought the explorer a few weeks back. It had misfires in four of cylinders then. After I changed all the sparkplugs and fixed two of the cables it had no misfires. But now cylinder 4 has started acting up again.

    If you determine the miss is not from the wire or plug,
    then suspect the fuel injector. Make sure the injector
    wiring connector is tight and clean.
