    Never said a vac leak would cause a cam code, just starting with basics for the loud hissing,and misfire, basics somthing alot of techs forgot about and end up throwing parts at it. good day.

    You probably have a loose sparkplug or blew one right out of the head,The sucking noise would be the cylinder compression coming out. Check this first.

I would reset the codes and make sure there are no vacuum leaks and check that the throtle tube is on and tight, this is the tube from air filter box to throtlebody. if the codes return then i would start with plugs and check the coil boots first, again thats if there are no vac leaks, it almost sounds like the idle air valve got stuck for a sec. and last make sure the throtle plate is clean and throtlebody. good day.

Testimonial: "the misfire blew off a vacuum line and caused the cam sensor fault. reconnected vacuum line and reset fault. Problem solved thanks"

    A cam sensor would not be caused by any vacuum leak, the misfire code is likely due to the cam shaft position sensor fault.

SOURCE: engine keeps missing. unknown codes

Code 1682 indicates low battery voltage. This could be a problematic alternator, which would likely cause misfiring. Autozone should be able to check this for you for free.

Code 1391 indicates the computer can not see the crank or cam sensor signal. This would likely be a result of the misfires.

Code 0320 indicates the crankshaft position sensor reference signal could not be found while the engine is cranking.

All of these issues point to either a cam/crank sensor malfunction or a charging system problem, either or both of which could cause the misfiring.

Most likely, the P0442 and P0455 are not the causes for your engine problem, they are related to the fuel supply system (check http://www.obd-codes.com/p0442 ).

P0303 is the problem.
First, I'd try to change the spark plugs. If still not OK, I'd try to use an "Fuel system cleaner" or "Injector cleaner". These are some small plastic bottles you can buy at car-parts shops. You need to buy the version according to your engine type (gas or diesel) then use it as stated on the instructions printed on the bottle.

Of course, the problem could be worst, but 90% of the problems are caused by small causes.

SOURCE: cylinder number 5 misfire, what

I'm assuming the code that was pulled is P0305. Best case would be a bad spark plug on the number 5 cylinder. Keep in mind, the spark plugs are torque sensitive when installing. These are the possible causes that are stated in a Jeep service manual for your vehicle. Check the basics first......Camshaft,crankshaft,valve timing or vacuum problem,ignition coil output is low,engine internal mechanical problem,secondary ignition pattern is irregular, fuel contamination, Fuel pressure leak down is out of spec, fuel pump ampere out of spec, fuel pump capacity out of spec, fuel pressure is out of spec., engine compression, PVC system restriction, Fuel injector #5 is defective or the connection on the injector itself is loose or corroded, Intake gasket defective. It could also be freeze frame data in the PCM, but this is a very very rare cause.

98 jeep wrangler tj 4.0 code 320 crank sensor exhaust glowing red acceleration not going over 2000 showing signal on scan tool that crank sensor is working.


Good morning
4L
Questions (sorry)
so it runs perfect and only red glow? no, it has lost engine power.
GIVE It A FULL 60K MILE TUNE UP YET, BUY The book the decades?
the 98 is obd2, technology USA< and allscantools work this year
and will all report 1 miss in 10 on all sensor like that, CMP or CKP

that red glow means tons of fuel and air are landing outide engine
this is caused by gross misfire. ever misfire dumps load of fuel and 20% oxygen there, like the afterburner on a jet, but this case is wasted so, MISFIRE is the prime symptom.
if running a turbo ,it be normal. (red glow only)

so what cause misfire,
there is a huge list if reason , can i assume you have no DTC errors thrown?
are the spark wire routed, in the correct firing order.
is the engine timed to spec>?
got 150 or more PSI compression on all 6 cylinders?
The PCM;/ECU can also go to limphome mode, and do that. easy.
bad sensor inputs, do that, and DTCs are stored.
is that a real scanner or just cheap code reader, if real there are lots of checks. can i list them? all EFI fuses good.
  1. ECT shows ambient temp , cold started, the goes to 180F and holds hot? if not the thermostat is no good, bingo. stuck in cold start mode for ever.
  2. I keyon and see the TPS work, not started, called throttle angle.
  3. i start and TPS ANGLES show, low then high as i gun the throttle
  4. The engine worms up and gets to closed loop status. CL.
  5. if not I fix that first, after all fixing idle hard fails is 10x easier than flying down the road at 2000 rpm.
  6. Ok got closed loop at idle (i bet not) then while parked can i get CL status, at 2000 rpm, in neutral or park.?
  7. id bed not. id bet 6 fails all fail able, or?
  8. so why is it not. well that can be easy or hard, what can you do ,well lots really , bad 02 sensor (front) or exhaust leaks near it?
  9. its and old 4L so do the compression test as we do on all old motors, its after all, old. can run a dead engine with EFI.
  10. IS fuel pressure too high (gauged)
  11. Is the Fpreg working, (gauged)
  12. is the MAP WORKING (voltmeter) ask for scale i have it.
  13. leaking injectors. (for 3 reasons/cause) "gauged leak down tests"
  14. more sure but above may land on the common....fast.

some 4L liter in CAL have 2 front 02 sensors, due to split exhuast header man. so that takes a quick look there.

Try cleaning the MAF sensor. It is delicate. It has a filament like a light bulb that detects the incoming air flow through the air intake. If the MAF gets a micro piece of dirt, pollen or any type of debris on the tiny filament, it can cause fault codes, skipping, engine shut down, poor gas mileage and etc. This can be removed and cleaned with a Mass Air Flow spray cleaner. Be sure to spray it about 10-15 times and let it dry before replacing the intake air pipe. On the other hand it could be a intermittent failure on a plug wire causing the skipping and misfire. Good Luck

2000 Buick LeSabre Will not start Replaced cam


Multiple engine misfire is related to the coils and the ignition control module. I have a 2002 with the 3.8 engine. It has three coils. I just went through this problem. I bought one coil and tried it in each position with no improvement. It was the ignition control module. Mine is located under the three coils. A relatively easy item to replace. Cost about $140.

i just had the same problem in my bmw 325i. Probably vaccum leak or exhaust leak. Check that nothing came loose in these areas. It takes time for your car to learn the new CPS (cam pos. sensor) so give it a few days and reset the code again and see if it works.

I have a 2000 chrysler concorde that the engine light just popped on - the error codes are po302, po420, po340


P0302-cylinder #2 misfire detected
P0420- catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
P0340-No cam signal at PCM.
The Cam sensor most likely needs to be replaced first. Clear the codes after that and drive and see what comes back on.
