Lately I been having a hell of a problem with this. :confused: It seems everytime it shifts from second to third at WOT, its start to shutters,hesitates and misfires baddly. I get usualy Cyl#4 and Cyl#3.
But, regular driving is just fine.
Last time I had to pull the #3 plug and found no tip on it!:eek:
HELP!

smashed or broken plugs are never a good thing. I hate to say assume the worst, but you should probably find a boroscope and look in the cylinder and see what you've got. Hate to say it but it might be time for a rebuild. I just got finished with the same thing (smashed plugs on #1). I was missing a chunk of ring land about 3 inches long and about a half inch wide along the edge of the piston. I hope it might be something different for you. My car still ran pretty smooth and everything after that but I had the same hesitation at the shifts at WOT. When I took the head off I couldn't believe that the engine was even running.
