Fault code 214

1995 Escort 1.9 L code reader indicates a continous error code KOEO 214 Cylinder identification circuit failure. what does this mean and how do I correct it?

    I am getting the same code on my 95 Escort. The sensor on the back of the cylinder head under the intake manifold is the camshaft position sensor. I have replaced this sensor twice on my vehicle. My symptoms were rough idle and misfiring when accelerating from a stop. The symptoms were intermittent and then became worse over time. I recall the rough idle prompting me to replace the camshaft position sensor. Unfortunately I can't recall what code triggered me to replace it. Code 214 looks like the closest thing that would have triggered me to start looking. The sensor is $20-30, but you need to remove the intake manifold to replace it. I probably decided the cost wasn't much, the intake manifold was readily accessible so I replaced it and the problems went away.

    The crankshaft position sensor is located underneath the vehicle near the oil filter. I haven't replaced this one yet. It would be nice to know if the symptoms are different when these sensors act up. Right now my symptoms are occasional misfiring from acceleration from a stopping position.

This code is caused by the CID sensor, it is a common fault on Escort OBD 1 engine control The Cylinder ID (CID) sensor provides crankshaft position information to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The PCM uses this information during engine start up to begin sequential fuel injection at the correct time. It's a good possibility the CID is bad or the wiring between the CID and the PCM is open. The CID is located in the back of the cylinder head on the distributor side of the engine systems.

2003 grand marquis with misfire code p0316


The first problem you have is assuming that the ignition coil is the only thing that can cause a misfire.

Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0316 is a "continuous memory only" code that indicates that there is a fault causing a misfire during the first 1000 revolutions of the crankshaft immediately after engine start-up. This should be accompanied by the regular cylinder misfire monitors (Codes P0301 through P0310) unless the misfire does not continue long enough for the regular misfire monitors to determine which cylinder is misfiring.

In order to determine what is actually causing the problem, you must have access to a scan tool that can perform Key On Engine Off (KOEO) fault testing and Key On Engine Running (KOER) fault testing as well as interfacing with the onboard engine computer to read live data and perform system tests.

Please note that generic OBD code readers DO NOT have the capabilities to do what you need to diagnose this problem. You will most likely get additional DTCs that can help lead you to find the source of the problem when KOEO and KOER tests are run. Generic OBD code readers can access only continuous memory DTCs.

Possibilities/conditions/systems that can cause this code are:
>Camshaft Position Sensor
>Low fuel: less than 1/8 tank
>Stuck open EGR Valve
>Blocked EGR passages
>Ignition system
>Fuel Injectors
>Fuel injector control circuits
>Running out of fuel
>EVAP canister purge valve
>Fuel Pressure
>Evaporative emissions system
>Base engine (mechanical) problems

I have a 99 ford escort that has a new fuel pump and timming belt new plugs, wires and new fuel fiter it try to start but only run a sec. and pulls up a 02 sencer code


First of all, there are about 8 different O2 sensor codes for that vehicle. Which of these codes it is setting can make HUGE difference in how you go about diagnosing the vehicle.
There is also no way that there could be an O2 sensor code in KOEO self test unless you have a dead short in your O2 heater circuit. You are most likely pulling ONLY "continuous memory codes". There is no telling how long that code has been in there.

Secondly, you are describing symptoms that sounds like the engine is not getting any/enough fuel. Do you have any fuel pressure at the fuel rail? If so, how much pressure do you have? Please note that "new fuel pump" does not mean that you have the correct fuel pressure at the fuel rail.

Are you sure it is timed correctly?

Are the plug wires wired correctly?

Are you sure it even has gas in the fuel tank?

I would recommend performing a KOEO self-test to eliminate any hard electrical faults before doing ANYTHING else. Please also note that MOST generic OBD code readers CANNOT perform this task.

CODE 214 95 FORD ESCORT LX 1.9 NO DISTRIBUTOR WHAT THE CODE MEAN?


This code on this vehicle decodes to "cylinder identification circuit fault" or "CID error."
This code is highly vague unfortunately and represents a general sensor and/or sensor circuit (wiring or plug) error.
You didnt mention any running issues or problems. It is important to note that as well as if the code clears itself and the check engine light goes away or if it has been on for a long period (weeks or more of daily commuting). This might help a technician if you decide to bring it to one.

You could clean and inspect all sensor harnesses and plugs.

If the vehicle idles rough or sometimes wants to stall when at a stop (especially when the check engine light is on the most likely culprit is the camshaft sensor which is very inexpensive, and a fairly common problem, but they are a bunch of work to get at.

best wishes!

I need to know what the code 18 and 41 means for 93 Buick Park Avenue Ultra with a 3.8 litre supercharged eng


When fixing codes start with first code first / it dos not always mean that the sensor is the fault ,it could be in the harness / the plug or the ground. and reference signal should be tested , but in this case you most likely could get away with replacing the cam sensor, that would be the Lest expensive and easiest to start with,to git to it you will have to remove the alternator hope this is help full, the other code suggest that it could be the crank sensor , that and the plug for it does fail quite often but first things first feel free to ask if you should have any further questions , Thank you ,

Check engine light comes on after approx. one minute. My code reader gives me a 214 in continuous memory ( cylinder ID circuit failure). I clear the code and it comes back. What is giving me this code?...


look 214 is not a valid code for a 1995 escort, this is an OBD1 system. here is a list of trouble codes for this year of ford no matter the model.

You should find the diagnostic connector under your hood normally by the fender on the battery side. By just using your test light and a jumper wire, it will tell you what kind of problem you got.

KEY ON ENGINE OFF (KOEO) TEST
Model years 1984-1995 all models of Ford
1. Make sure engine is fully warmed. If in doubt, run engine at 2000 rpm for 2 minutes.
2. Turn ignition off and wait 10 seconds for system to shut off. Make sure A/C is off and transmission is in Park (automatic) or Neutral (manual).
3. Hook up light and jumper (or a tester if you have one). Turn key to ON (do not start engine). Read the codes.

How to do it?

Example code 23: your test light should flash 2 long consecutive flashes followed by 3 short pulses.
