PO306 MISFIRE 3.0L Vulcan
I am having trouble with my 2000 Taurus wagon. If you baby it, you can drive it but it sputters sometimes. It seems to do it under a load like going up a hill or on the throttle hard. Spread out over the past year I have replaced the plugs, then the coil pack and just recently the wires and I only did the wire since the misfire started. It is to the point that the check engine light will flash.
I pulled all the plugs and did a compression test
#1 = 165
#2 = 150
#3 = 165
#4 = 155
#5 = 155
#6 = 170 <-- smelled fuel
I smelled fuel as soon as I pulled the flug out of the # 6 cylinder.
I used a scanned and it says I have a misfire in #6.
What do you think, bad injector?
All of the plugs looked ok, kind of an oranginsh color but they have some miles on them
