Just to put that in possibly clearer terms... the cylinder numbering for a "duratec" v6 is...looking from the front of the car, with the serpentine belt on your left, with the brake master cylinder / vacuum booster on your right, cylinders are 1,2,3 along the back side of the engine, left to right, and then 4,5,6 along the front of the engine, left to right. 1 is therefore the cylinder closest to the front passenger seat. 6 is therefore on the driver's side, closest to the front grille.

If its a V6 the #4 cylinder is the 1st coil closest to the passenger side of the care on the front side of the engine if its a 4 cylinder its the one closest to the left or drivers side of the car on top of the engine.

You can also confirm this by checking the distributor cap it should have numbers on it with connecting wire going to the corresponding cylinder. find the wire for cylinder # 4 and then trace it back to the engine.

P0302 - Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected,what needs to be done.


Fritz, Clear codes, Plugs and coils try switching them around, not using the same cylinder, to see if code changes to different cylinder. this would help diagnose bad coil or plug. See links below for full instruction. I have had this code come up because of a bad/dirty fuel injector also. Last link tells what other reasons code could be thrown.

Not much.
Code 300 is for a random miss. The engine computer has detected more than one cylinder that is not producing power, but no one cylinder is constant.
Until you get a code like 301 or 303 its a guessing game. 301-306 would tell you which cylinder is being the problem.
The cause could be fuel or spark.

I have a 2000 Dodge Stratus with a random misfire on 1,3 and 5. The engine runs fine besides a twitch in the motor that can be felt while idling. Already replaced plugs and wires. Suggestions?


get the OBD codes read this will tell you which switch/sensor is causing the issue , the last random misfire i encountered turned out to be low cylinder compression so if the OBD code says " random misfire " then get the cylinder compressions read , hope this helps

2004 Jetta 1.8T started idling rough at low rpm, OBD says random misfire....


spark plugs? either current ones are bad, or maybe you replaced recently with incorrect ones (most autoparts stores don't have the right plugs for 1.8T...need to go to dealer or ecstuning.com)
-or-
coil packs?
the OBD scan should tell you what cylinder is misfiring. try swapping the coil packs around and see if the misfire moves. if it does, then replace the bad coil pack (might just want to do all 4). if not, trying swapping the plugs around...same idea.

I have a cylinder misfiring (according to the CODE) - what do i need to do to repair this?


A misfire that occurs in a given cylinder will set a P030X code where "X" will be the number of the cylinder that is misfiring. For example, a P0302 code would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring.

The misfire might be due to:
1. a fouled spark plug,
2. a bad plug wire,
3. a defective ignition coil in a DIS system,
4. a clogged or dead fuel injector or,
5. a loss of compression due to a leaky exhaust valve, leaky head gasket or worn cam lobe.

On some vehicles, the OBD II system itself will disable a cylinder if it detects a high enough rate of misfire. This is done to protect the catalytic converter. By shutting off the cylinder's fuel injector, the OBD II system prevents unburned fuel from passing through the cylinder and entering the exhaust. Raw fuel in the exhaust is bad news because it makes the converter overheat, and if it gets too hot it can suffer damage. What else does OBD II add to the equation? It also monitors the operation of the catalytic converter with a second oxygen sensor on the tailpipe side of the converter. By comparing upstream and downstream O2 sensor readings, it can determine how well the converter is doing its job. If converter efficiency drops below a certain threshold, the OBD II system will set a code and turn on the Check Engine light.

OBD II can also detect fuel vapor leaks (evaporative emissions) in the charcoal canister, evap plumbing or fuel tank by pressurizing or pulling a vacuum on the fuel system. It can even detect a loose or missing gas cap. In addition, OBD II can also generate codes for various electronic transmission problems and even air condition failures such as a compressor failure.

Hope help with this.

Why is my 1997 expedition showing a misfire on number 2 cylinder OBD code PO302. Also I am getting code readings PO174 andPO171 system to lean on Bank 1and 2


PO302 is being a misfire, could mean the plug is bad or the coil is bad for that cylinder. Which can give you the misfire reading and the system to lean codes. Check the #2 coil for firing.
