    Hi I have a 96 honda accord ex-r that misfires between 2500 and 3000 rpm only when i'm cruising not when I'm accelerating. However when I'm accelerating it lags between 2500 and 3000 rpm once it passes 3000 rpm it runs smooth again. Got a code p302 which is 2 cylinder misfiring..has any experienced this problem or know what could be the cause of it..please help :huh:

    also check the plugs if the #2 cyliner plug is covered in oil that will causeit to misfire.....this would mean that your valve cover gasket is bad

    changed all the spark plugs and it still misfires..#2 plug looks like the rest of the plugs. It's not covered with oil and there is no carbon build-up.
