A missfire code if not cylinder specific, like "mulitiple missfire detected" is usually a fuel issue, as it's the only thing that could trigger a multiple missfire. Coils generally work or they don't. On rare occation they are cracked. I would change the fuel filter and try some dry gas then injector cleaner. Hope this helps.

How does it idle? Does it run smooth at highway speeds?

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE About a week ago the check engine light came on, it started running rough, especially at idle. Computer diagnostic results showed missfire in cylinder 6. I replaced...


i would definately replace the coil. pretty certain that will solve your problem. do not drive with misfire or that can cause fruther damage such as catalyst failing, which is prety expensive.

What does the code "misfire on bank 1 mean" on a diagnostic code for a 2000 lincoln navigator mean?


Do you mean "missfire on cylinder 1", code P0301? If so, that means that the computer has detected incomplete combustion in the #1 cylinder, which would be the front passenger side cylinder. There are many potential causes to a cylinder missfire ranging from worn / bad ignition components, clogged / bad fuel injector or even internal engine damage.

However the most common cause, especially on ford vehicles is a bad ignition coil. When trying to determine the cause of a missfire on an engine such as the one in your Navigator i start with removing the plug and checking for carbon tracing, excessive plug gap or contaminants on the plug. If that checks out ok i then swap the ignition coil from the missfiring cylinder to one that isn't. For example, I would swap the ignition coil from #1 to #2 and clear the codes. Then drive around until the light comes back. If it comes back with a missfire on cylinder #2 then you know the cause is the ignition coil and it has to be replaced. If it doesn't then it is something else causing the missfire which will require a bit more diagnostics.

How many miles are on your Navigator? Have the plugs ever been replaced? If you have close to 100k it would be a good idea to replace all of the plugs. Be careful when removing the plugs, it's not difficult to pull the threads right out of the head when removing the plug.

I have a 2004 Lincoln avaitor and this week i noticed after sunday filling up with gas it started missing on my way to work monday am. when i got to about 40 to 60 mph the truck starts missing. It has 75k...


Once scanned and the codes suggest missfiring, Check your ignition coils. There are one unit atop the each sparkplug, and it is recommended to replace all upon performing a tune-up (costly). Purchase them on ebay and save $$!!Ford/Lincoln/Murcury vehicles with DIS and COPs (coil over plugs) systems are known for these coils to fail around 70-100k miles, typical early symtoms are random sputtering/missfire around 40-60mph with foot slightly on accellerator. If this is the problem, it will progress to stalling, severe missfire, very poor MPGs, rough idle!!Hopefully this helps

These cars are famous for leaky seals where the valve cover interfaces with the cylinder head, at the spark plug journals. They fill with oil, short the coils and cause a misfire. Driving it any significant distance can destroy your catalytic converters ad unburnt fuel ignites therein, creating inferno-like conditions and a fire hazard too. You'll get a "300 code", such as 301 if cylinder 1 is misfiring, 302 for # 2, etc. Pull the coil off the spark plug for that cylinder and if it is moist at all, that's your issue. Have new seals put in, or you'll just keep blowing coils at $50 a whack.
