E30 m20 misfire, checked everything please help
 
Hey guys I've been having a issue with my 86 e30 325e turbo. The car generated a misfire.so yesterday I pulled the plugs and cyl. 5 plug was completely black and the others were fine. I checked the spark plug wire and cleaned the spark plug up. I checked fuel pressure and its good. I checked injectors and they're all clicking the same one doesn't sound different than the others. I don't know what else to check. The plugs are brand new.it seems like its not getting spark all the time or the injector is stuck open.

Spark plug wire was bad. It had spark but not enough. Since i saw it had spark i ignored it but I Found some brand new Bosch premium spark plug wires in the junkyard for $5 so i threw them on and car runs good now.

should ohm at around 5kohms. not worth buying brand new imo, they are super expensive. you can replace 100 from a junkyard before breaking even with a new set. so you did the right thing :thumbup:
