My car is misfiring on several cylinders and there is coolant in my coil pack 5and 6

Rough idling, no power on acceleration, revs by itself, shuts off
The first thing I check for in any drivability problem is air leaks. Any air that gets into the engine without going through proper channels will lean out the system and cause these kinds of problems. Look under the hood...
My Bmw is throwing a code for system to lean, to much oxygen and not enough gas.
As the codes indicate, this means there is a lean fuel condition which may be caused by a lack of fuel supply or in some cases, a vacuum leak as you describe near the cold air intake. When a vacuum...

One strut mount we up with a dust cap on, one without. How big of a deal is it?
Hi Dan. Thanks for the question today. In regards to geometry, handling and "whether it's fine", a dust cap should not have that great of an impact. I'm curious as to why the mechanic did this - as to me,...
I replaced the ignition coils and one just melt and now it is showing a bunch of codes p0335/p1318/p0700/p0440.
The coil melting is the first issue to address. A possible cause of that is the 12 volt primary side supply wire to that coil is shorted to ground due to a pinched wire or other wiring fault. You can...
