Check the voltage at the battery make sure you have 14 to 14.5 volts there when the car is running, if so. Have someone reeve up the engine to about 2500 rpm see if the voltage drops down if it does I would have the alternator check it could have worn out brushes in it and the springs inside that hold the bushes can no loner hold them on the armature any more. This will cause problems with the computer causing miss fire. If you do not find anything do this. You can check further by using a drop voltage test to go thought the charging system to find where you are losing your power. If you don’t know how to do a drop voltage test, post again. I can get you the information for you if you wish to try and learn but first look for loose connections or dirty connection. GM likes to stack up wire connectors on the starter and on ground connections look in these place first they have cause me lots of problems.

My 94 5.4ltr. Thunderbird engine surges and my alternator gauge and headlights surge.But seems to charge the battery ok. Always starts.Only code i get says #7 misfire. Right bank coil pack.

Try replacing the wiring harness that connects to the top of the alternator. They vibrate and the wires inside break. They are only about twelve dollars.

Got a 99 chevy s10 with a po 303 code any help would help

Your P0303 means: "Cylinder #3 Misfire Detected." This could involve a simple matter of a bad spark plug, plug wire or something a bit more serious. If you have separate coils for each cylinder or groups of cylinders, then you need to check the coil pack to the coil over #3 Cylinder. Sometimes it could also mean a vacuum leak ANYWHERE on the Engine and lastly a Valve problem in that the intake or exhaust valve on Cylinder #3 is carboned up. I would recommend getting a Haynes Manual, available at most part stores to go through their diagnostic as to your misfire. Remember, in obtaining a Code, it has a lot more to do with a simple 'misfire detected', it's a starting point to where to look. A vacuum gauge and a compression gauge would help should it not be something so simple as a spark plug, plug wire, coil or a distributor cap & rotor button that has too much corrosion on it.

I hope this helps you a little,

As Always,

Misfire in 97 voyager,P0300 and P0304,HELP! Need 2 get inspection

I'd have fuel pressure checked, and at the very least, replace fuel filter. Not unusual to get multiple misfire codes due to low fuel pressure, thus starving cylinder(s), and causing the misfire code(s).

Check engine

maybe a bad wire to sending unit, or a bad sending unit, the engine light may be related to the gauge problem, go to autozone have them scan the computer if the code has to do with the fuel level sender, then check the wiring if its good then replace the fuelpump asm, the asembly will come complete with a sender for gauge,when replacing make sure baffle is not floating around in tank.

My 96 chevy blazer has a code ''random 4 misfire'' only misses when in park or idleing at a light. is this and injector issue?

my 96 blazer would have random missfires.... sometimes more than one cylinder at a time... there are a few things to try.... 96 vortecs still used distributor caps... but they had such a high intensity spark that they were well noted for frying distributor caps and ignition coils... i would start there... also a few times i had to replace the crankshaft timing sensor.... it could be something as small as a spark plug wire... i would start with the ignition before spending money to check the fuel system

96 ford explorer code p0301 mis fire 1

Sounds like either a bad plug wire, or coil pack. This is about all that would cause the misfire.

96 3 cylinder 1.0 Swift

Sounds like you you need new spark plug wires and also I would change the cap and rotor. Since it happens when it is wet I am really thinking that there is a break in the wires, that will definately cause that.

Gauges in 96 pontiac grand am

Sounds to me like the wiring is bad. If you can get your head under the dash board and visually inspect the wiring for bald spots where the metal shows through the insulation you might be able to locate the trouble.
