    For the fourth Tuesday in a row, my car had so many misfires I needed to reschedule my appointment. For the second time, I took it to my mechanic. The first time he told me to pull the plugs and check them. Yesterday they were closed at 4pm.

    8/28 replaced spark plug tube seals

    9/04 replaced spark plugs (which were less than 14 months old)

    9/11 replaced the distributor (leaked oil and the points were corroded) and cleaned the wires with electrical parts cleaner and Q-tips

    09/18 after driving about twenty miles the car misfired worse and worse. I cleaned the spark plugs and wires with soap and water, dried them with my compressor, and drove home without a problem.

    How come the car drives fine for five miles, but then starts misfiring? It only misfires on the cylinders that had the oil leak!
