SOURCE: 1997 Camry Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

Removal of the plenum is pretty straight forward. You will need to replace the plenum gasket after you remove it; the gasket is not reusable. Personally, if I was going to take the trouble to remove the plenum, I would replace the plugs and wires back there, also.
I know, I have a 93 Camry V6, and it is a real pain to do the plugs and wires with the plenum on. There are no secrets or great tips on the plenum removal, just take your time. Remember that there are different size bolts, and where they go. Please get back to me if you need any more info...Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa to resolve your issue.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: 2000 CIVIC System too lean Cylinder 3 and 4 misfire Deteced

  1. P0171: This means that the oxygen sensor has detected a lean air-fuel ratio. This can be caused due to a vaccuum leak or a problem in the HO2S circuit or the HO2S (Heated Oxygen Sensor) itself. (Bank one Sensor one). This is commonly located along the exhaust pipe. It could also be a bad Mass Air Flow sensor or a bad Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. Diagnostic checks will be needed to be carried out to be verified though
  2. Well as for the other codes, it means #3&4 cylinders are misfiring. It is a possibility that the P0171 code mite have caused the others to show up. I can be wrong though. But it is a strong possibility. If the air fuel mixtue is too lean indeed, mis-firing will occur, unless it is an actual electronic and not a mechnical problem. By the way, when these codes appear, how is the engine's performance. Does it remain the same or behaves poorly?

Why does my 2002 hyundai elentra misfire?


Is it misfiring on just one cylinder (code 0301, 0302, 0303, 0304 etc.) or multiple/random (code 0300) cylinders?
It takes all 4 ingredients to fire a cylinder - Air, Fuel, Spark, and Timing. If you only have one misfire code (P0302 - Cylinder #2 Misfire), it should be a relatively easy diagnosis and fix. Let's start with Spark. I'm going to assume you have a code reader. First, remove the spark plug in #2 cylinder. Examine the threaded end. Is it wet and/or smell like fuel? If so, chances are the misfire is caused by a weak/absent spark. To confirm, swap it with a known good cylinder - example #3 cylinder. Clear the code. Start it and let it run for a couple of minutes. If a code appears with P0303 (the last digit refers to cylinder number), then you have found the culprit - bad spark plug. If the code reappeared with P0302 (Cylinder #2 again), then swap out the spark plug wire (both ends). Clear the code. Start and run for a couple of minutes. Again, if it appears on Cylinder #3 - the plug wire is the culprit. If the P0302 code comes back, swap the coil. See where this is going?
Now, when you first pulled the plug from Cylinder #2, if it wasn't wet or smelled of fuel, chances are Spark is not the issue. Was the plug dry and/or ashy? Possible cause is no fuel reaching the combustion chamber (cylinder). Using an automotive stethoscope, listen to the fuel injector for cylinder #2 while the motor is running. Should hear a regular and rhythmic ticking sound. Like a fast clock. (Use a long handled screwdriver touching one end to your ear and the other to the top of the injector if you dont have a stethoscope). No clicking or irregular clicking means fuel injector is not working (no sound) or is not working properly. Like searching for the Spark problem, swap the injector in #2 cylinder with #3. Clear code. Start and run. If the problem moved to #3, ithat injector is the culprit. If it stayed on #2, it is likely your wiring to that injector - check the whole harness for loose connections or swelled with oil wires/connectors. Keep pecking away at the fuel delivery system for that cylinder. Stay looking for things that affect only that cylinder.
When you pulled the plug, was it fairly normal looking? Then this misfire code might only be a timing problem. It is likely not a timing problem in your case, because timing affects all cylinders, but I thought I would just mention it since Timing is an important part of combustion. Also, if timing were a culprit here, another code would usually appear signifying the Camshaft Positon Sensor or Crankshaft Position Sensor was/is failed, or it is possible for the timing belt/chain to skip a knurl on a sproket and throw the timing off, but like I said, it would almost always cause multiple/random (Code P0300) misfires.
And finally, when you pulled the plug earlier, if it was an oily sticky mess, then the culprit might be Air - or compression/lack of compression. Lets hope not, because when Air is the cause of a misfire, it is usually an expensive fix. Need to perform a compression test. If you have little or no compression in the cylinder, it is likely a bad head gasket or a stuck/sticky/broken/chipped valve (exhaust or intake). Any of these things are bad news and expensive to fix in a shop. Also bad news and time consuming and difficult task for a shade tree mechanic.
Now, clear that code and get started! Good luck!

Why is my 2003 gmc v8 envoy skipping & shaking


You are misfiring. If you have Autozone (or similar) research your check engine light, they will come up with one or more of the following codes P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304 etc. etc.P0308. The P0300 code refers to "Random/Multiple misfires" whereas the other codes refer to that particular cylinder (last digit) misfire. The P0300 code sets when 2 or more cylinders misfire (can be the same 2 over and over, but it takes at least 2 cylinders to misifre to set that code. The others only take one misfire to set the code. Now that you know what is happening, here is how to fix....
Takes all to fire a cylinder (Fuel, Spark, Air & Timing) properly. If you have random or multiple misfires, it is likely something that is COMMON to all cylinders - like the air intake/throttle body area - throttle body can get carbon buildup and not open/close properly. Check the fuel pressure to the fuel rail(s), fuel filter clogged? When you turn your key to the "ON" position, do you hear the fuel pump turn on (whine) and then shut off? No whine, means no fuel pump. Check all fuses and fuse relays related to the fuel delivery system. Check the distributor cap/rotor for any signs of carbon tracking/arcing. Do you have good spark from coil? Check wiring for the Camshaft Position Sensor/Crankshaft position Sensor for timing issues. Finally, check compression on all cylinders. Need good compression for combustion to take place.

For a single cylinder (example Cylinder #2) - Easiest to check is spark. Pull the plug and look at it. Is it wet and smell like fuel? If so, then swap it with cylinder next to it. If the problem moved, then its the plug. If the misfire is still on Cylinder #2, then swap the plug wire (both ends). If the misfire is still on Cylinder #2, then swap the coil. (see where this is going?) If the plug is dry, then check the fuel injector for operation. Noid light tester or you can get a long screwdriver and stick one end on your ear and the other on the injector - it should make a steady, rhythmic clicking sound if it is functional when caricon1.png is running. No sound? Replace. Is the plug oily? Check cylinder #2 for compression. No compression or little compression means either head gasket blown or bad/sticking valve (intake or exhaust) = big money to get fixed. Timing on one cylinder is hard to test without correct test tools. Timing is likely not a problem on a single cylinder misfire. Good luck.

RE: Johnny brown- 2003 Sebring multiple cylinder misfire 3.0 New distributor new crankshaft sensor new plugs new wires good compression injectors good... Installed new EGR started with cold engine and


ENGINE MISFIRE

There are few possibilities that can cause engine misfire issues. It can be issue with spark plugs or faulty spark plugs. Also get the compression test done for cylinders. If any of cylinder shows low compression then required, then that particular cylinder will cause misfire.

Also get obd codes scanned, the error code will let you know which cylinder is misfiring or all cylinders are misfiring.

03 windstar misses and sputters when it rains,eng lite flashes then stays off 4 a while.then goes off. when dry out it runs great.is it the coil pack


Could possibly be the coil pack has a crack in it, could also be plug wires have cracks in them as well, sounds like time for a tune up. Recommend replacing plugs and wires, and if that doesn't solve the issue then spring for the coil pack. Scanning the computer will tell you what code you have to help point you in the right direction as well. If you have any p0300-p0306 codes those are all misfire codes.p0300 is random multiple misfire, p0301-p0306 are individual cylinder misfires.

Engine lopes while idling code 300 runs good driving


Hi there,

If your DTC code is correct, P0300 means: Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected.

As you have not indicated any codes from 301 - 306, then the computer has not been able to identify which cylinder misfired.

Therefore, you will need to begin checking for possibilities which could trigger the random (or multiple) misfire, which can be anything from:

- air leaks (this can disrupt readings on the engine's computer). Try spaying liquid around the inlet manifolds, check hoses etc for leaks.
- Bad coil (assuming engine has a coilpack)
- Bad or poor spark plugs
- Bad or poor condition HT leads (going to the spark plugs)
- Bad cylinder compression (compression test will confirm this)
- Leaking head gasket (this can also cause bad cylinder compression) - are you losing coolant from your cooling system?

These are just some possibilities...

Cheers,

Scott

Random misfire


sounds like the coil pack is the primary suspect here ..especially if your miss is migrating to cylinder#2 now....other issue possible...do a compression test...head gasket failure losing compression between #1 and #2 ....also..and specifically for *other user* comment... check function of EGR valve for vacuum leak into intake causing stumble misfire shudder and engine dying issues
