Misfiring cylinder 3 on axiom 2004, replaced coil and plug, need info. On cleaning injectors.


how do you know that, (you never said)
P0303 DTC errors? that?
303 means.
#3 cylinders combustion energy is weak, to a tech it means the piston velocity was week, slow to accelerate, it was.
that can be.
1: spark bad (for gas/petrol engines)
2: injection bad.
3: this cylinder compression bad.

it is NOT just a spark issue, not at all.
it can even be air leaks (vacuum ) near #3 but that cause.
injection rates to seem wrong when ok. lean.
see?

id be all over compression tests.
after all cant burn fuel with weak compression.
it may burn but 303 will keep going.
then spark, cant burn fuel with bad spark
and last is fueling. (air and fuel mix)
in that order, is how it happens in real world.
but we take short cuts, sure, and new spark plugs are prudent fast and only $2 each.

What is causing the fast Idle and slowing down


well gee, there are 50 reasons.
did you scan the PCM yet, if not ,why not?
when the idle surges, that means.
NO RPM ranges stated, if super low rpm check EGR.

1: engine lean and ISC dead, or cant handle the huge engine power drop..The PCM can even make this worse!, buy hunting the ISC to find spec, idle and failing... to...
2: or any of 50 other things causing huge engine power drop and PCM can't maintain idle controls.
super lean burn.(bogging)
super rich burn, misfire for 50 reasons.

i cant hear your engine,nor feel it, or see it shake from gross misfiring.
no can i drive it and see/feel power loss,
can I?
asking net bunny's this (blind as bats)
is "OVER THE TOP" no?
so here , ill toss the dice for you
and guess gross misfiring.
ever get a tuneup this decade, if not bingo , no?

and the others...

http://jeepdied.com/Misfire101.html

link even has the 50 cause list, to show the futility of guessing!
we do 1 to 10 tests. and find it.
for sure.

as you can see EFI systems are complex.
gue$$ is not only expensive but can net you 2 problems easy.

2001 grand caravan. dash lights stay on when van is running


Bad data wire, PCM is not getting threw to the IP(instrument panel) to turn of the lights. Or the IP logic chip has failed. I would lean towards a bad connection at the plug and IP. Fixed to many this way.

My 2001 accord will start but when I turn it off and go to lock it I can only do it with the key and the alarm and Imm won't set , can you help please


If the key work fine then pop open the back of the key fob and change the battery it could also be a fuse or relay if the radio has been changed then you may have to have to take it in and have it reprogrammed hope this was helpful

97 toyota surges at an idle


(which engine. ?????)_
as always check all fuses. and scan the ECU for DTCs. first.
there is no need to fix OBD2 cars like 1980 cars (hard rows to hoe)
it can be 2 problems this......
lets fix the easy one first. idle. (and hope for moving issues to fix for free) it idle car is parked, so is 100% safe tests. (not moving)

so it surges at idle.
questions.?
1: hot or cold or both.?
2: low extreme RPM and high at idle.

400 to 800 RPM? surge.
1000 to 2000. what? numbers tell the tale.

first off, idle is the last thing to work right on any engine.

there are many ways to find what is wrong.
fix idle surge way.
i make sure that the engine holds closed LOOP status.
hot idle, if not , i fix that first.
keep in mind if not in closes loop and lean
all lean engine surge and guess what the ISC will add to the surge
because idle is way too slow, so the ECU open the ISC wider
and wider and its still too slow, so the ECU resets the ISC
this cause a worst hunt (surge)
the ECU adjust spark time and the ISC to get 800 rpm. (spec. look up yours)
so say , i see closed loop failed, OBD2 scan page 1
i look at the O2 sensor an its stuck lean.
if stuck lean and it really is (o2 bad?) then its lean and it will surge
.
examples.
1: i find 02 sensor bad, (only effects idle and light steady cruise)
2: i find fuel pressure at 15PSI , hopeless low .
3: i find all injectors clogged. and lean.
4: with MAF EFI, ( i find maf reading too low, (dirty) causing lean.
5: if MAP car, i find the MAP stuck hard high vacuum causing lean.
not knowing what engine you have or the idle hot surge range,
i can not go farther.

the driving bog tells me,
1: scan the ecu ,get DTCs; do that first.
2: clean MAF if car has one, ask how..
3: check fuel pressure.


my guess is engine is lean. and starving for fuel all the time.
cept WOT.

MAF cars starve for fuel if there are any vacuum leaks.
MAP cars do opposite, they race fast with 100% full power.
MAF is air density EFI
MAP is speed density EFI.
apples and oranges diffr. so what engine.

My Ford E150 van, when almost floored, doesn't catch gas to the engine. Then I let up, and the van slows down 5 or 10 mph the engine works fine. What could this be?


clogged fuel filter, or it may be that the fuel pump is going bad. change filter, and while you have the line off, have a bottle ready, and put it over the line to catch the fuel. have someone turn on the key, but don't crank it, and see if you have fuel coming into the bottle. if so, then you may just have a bad fuel filter.

1985 gmc k1500 wipers only move at 1 slow spped, interminttent doesnt work at all. How fast is fast and why is fast not working?


Slow is the same speed as 'mist'. Mist is when you twist the control arm backwards to induce a single swipe. If you hold it, you will run the wipers in low speed. Fast is faster than that. Probably by 30% or more.

Turn the wipers on high speed. Wiggle the connector at the wiper motor. If the wipers run sporadically as you wiggle the connector, you either have a bad connector or a bad circuit board on the wiper motor.

Van stalled and wont start


If it turns over fast enough to start you might have a ignition problem or a fuel delivery problem (fuel pump). If it is turning over slow you probably have a bad alternator or battery. First check all your fuses and go from there. To see if the fuel pump is turning on, just turn on the ignition and listen for a buzz or whine from the fuel tank area and if you do not hear anything chances are that you need a fuel pump if you hear it turn on then off you have fuel and then you need to verify if you have spark from the ignition system which should be done by a professional because of the high voltage from the coil. Hope this helps.
