?Miss fire only at high revs

Recommended Posts


2000 V8-GT 

all seems to be fine down low and no CEL or codes ...... when I really floor it and get above 5000 revs I get what seems to be a miss fire - The engine kinda looses smooth acceleration  and a bit of loss of power. It’s only above 5000 rpm 

I wonder if it’s coil packs / plugs / leads so I will change these.......

Any other ideas ?

I'd imagine because the world is going backwards really fast!

Got the plenum off.   A lead was broken at the coil end !    changed the plugs / coils / all leads at the same time now I am scared above 5000

Why scared above 5000 ? If you fixed the problem, everything should be fine...
