Hello.

 

Can you tell me what b/h stands for.

 

Have you been able to identify which cylinder is misfiring.

 

Thanks.

hi b/h= bulk head, side nearest to driver,on transverse engine.


a cyilinder not fireing on this side,which one not known at this point !

Expert:  Mark replied 4 years ago.

The misfire and cam noise could be related if the cam has worn a lobe. The first thing to do is try find what cylinder is misfiring. It could be something simple as a spark plug.

 

You should also do a compression test on each cylinder. All the compressions should be within 10% of the highest reading.

 

Any difference greater than that could also be caused by a faulty camshaft lobe.
