The Green Machine I just love loaded questions. That's why I stay away from auto boards.

Zaedock I run Autolite copper cores in all of my Jeeps and Jeep powered rigs. They run fine.

ninjaturtle0 I had misfire a few weeks ago w autos...

I pulled the spark plug and it was broken so I just replaced it and no problems since.

Jwrangler03 Bah ha found it. One of my spark plugs were not gapped to the right size. Re-gapped runs better than OE Plugs.

The Green Machine OBD-II Trouble Code: P0306 Cylinder 6 Six Misfire Detected

A code P0306 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty spark plug or wire
I'd swap to Champions.

My owners manual says Champion plugs for my Jeep. I don't have to manipulate this, or that, or run a code scanner to look for codes, to get them to work either. Mine are plug and play. You can use whatever you want to use though.

Really, I found that Fords dont run right except on Autolites, and Motorcraft plugs. Like I suggested before, run Champions.

Jwrangler03 Does the cylinder count start from front to back or back to front.

check that cylinder 6. I would guess either the wire is loose/bad, or the plug was loose.

JimsJeep In addition, if the plug wires are on the older side you may have disturbed an issue waiting to happen. You could try swapping a wire to see if the misfire moves.
