    I have a 96 2wd with the 2.4 engine. It ran fine till the coil went out. I replaced the coil, And now it has a bad miss when under a load. It does not miss at idle, Or at higher rpms. I have replaced the cap,rotor, plugs,and wires. One step at a time, And nothing has helped. Any one have an idea of what's wrong?

    Welcome to TW. Is your CEL on? Also, did you replace the plugs?

    Kida sounds like a spark issue.

    I put in ngk plugs, Gapped. Each replacement was done seperately, And toy was driven to see if it solved the problem, Before the next parts were replaced.

    Generally, a miss under full load can be traced back to plugs, wires, cap, or rotor. The only other thing I can think of would be a compression test on the engine......

    It only misses when accellerating to change gears. and at 55mph in 4th and 5th gear It does not miss at higher rpms. No miss at 55mph in 3rd gear.

    Wires are correct (color coded) lol. It started when I replaced the coil. Before doing anything else.

    Maybe your coil is bad?

    You could have a bad set of wires. I have had that happen before. I am also thinking the crank position sensor may be screwing up.
