SOURCE: 99 4runner 5vz-fe 3.4 misfire

I know this post is old, but right on the engine theres a sticker that says use multi-ground plugs only. I read a similar problem like yours and it seemed to turn out that the spark was arcing to ground over the ceramic on the plug. So maybe it could have something to do with the single ground plugs.

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?

SOURCE: check engine light is on the code was po300

I respectfully disagree.
A P-0300 will NOT be set in a Corolla by a dirty fuel filter.
Replacing the fuel filter could be a very costly operation, as I have observed that the fuel line threads that connect to the fuel filter easuily get damaged when removing the fuel filter.

In short, don't replace the filter until you are SURE that it is the culpit.
In this case, the fuel filter is NOT the culprit..
Save your money; and your time.
Additionally, premium fuel does not clean fuel injectors. That expense would be a waste of money. The engine will actually run WORSE on premium fuel; the engine is NOT designed to run on premium. 87 or 89 (better choice/89) is the grade to use.

If you really want to track down the P-0300 code, which is a multiple/random cylinder misfire, I would look at the quality of the fuel in the car; ie water in the gas. Second, I would remove the plugs and examine them closely. A worn center electrode will also set the P-0300 code, as will bad/weak plug wires (over 5 years old).

Please feel free to contact me back if you need further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Volkswagen passat wagon 2004 codes p0300 p0302 p0304 p0011 runs fine


You have random misfire codes as well as misfires detected on cylinders #2 and #4. P0011 is likely the root cause of the misfire being detected
P0011 VOLKSWAGEN - 'A' Camshaft Position Timing Over-Advanced Or System Performance problems.

Possible causes- Dirty engine oil
- Low engine oil level
- Camshaft actuator circuit open or shorted
- Camshaft actuator circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty camshaft actuator

There may be a factory bulletin on this code, check with the VW dealer on that. Possible defective Camshaft actuator.

I have a 2002 Jaguar X-type. The check engine light came on and it has been acting jumpy/shaky. I recently took it to be diagnosed and the codes I recieved back were P1314, P1316, P1111, and P0302..What do...


All fault codes can be checked out at http://www.bluejag.co.uk but here are the results for some of yours. You can ignor P1111. Looks like a faulty plug or coil pack cylinder 2

Fault Code:- P1314 Indicates a Power-train fault


The fault is generally due to a problem in the Ignition or Misfire area


Fault Description: Misfire rate catalyst damage -bank 2 NOTE: This DTC will flag only when accompanied by an individual cylinder misfire DTC: P0300 - P0306

Action of ECM:- ECM Default:- Maximum engine speed reduced


After clearing the DTC, complete the Misfire monitor drive cycle
Check for a reoccurrence of fault DTC.


Possible Fault:- Cylinder compression low Worn camshaft / broken valve spring(s) Fuel delivery pressure (low / high) Fuel injector(s) restricted / leaking Fuel injector(s) continuously open Fuel contamination Fuel injector circuit fault(s) (Injector DTCs also flagged) Spark plug failure / fouled / incorrect gap ECM to ignition coil primary circuit fault (Cylinder misfire detected DTC also flagged) Ignition coil failure
Fault Code:- P1316 Indicates a Power-train fault


The fault is generally due to a problem in the Ignition or Misfire area


Fault Description: Misfire excess emission NOTE: This DTC will flag only when accompanied by an individual cylinder misfire DTC: P0300 - P0306

Action of ECM:- none


After clearing the DTC, complete the Misfire monitor drive cycle
Check for a reoccurrence of fault DTC.


Possible Fault:- Cylinder compression low Worn camshaft / broken valve spring(s) Fuel delivery pressure (low / high) Fuel injector(s) restricted / leaking Fuel injector(s) continuously open Fuel contamination Fuel injector circuit fault(s) (Injector DTCs also flagged) Spark plug failure / fouled / incorrect gap ECM to ignition coil primary circuit fault (Cylinder misfire detected DTC also flagged) Ignition coil failure

Fault Code:-
P0302 Indicates a Power-train fault


The fault is generally due to a problem in the Ignition or Misfire area


Fault Description: Misfire detected ?€" cylinder 2

Action of ECM:- none


After clearing the DTC, complete the Misfire monitor drive cycle
Check for a reoccurrence of fault DTC.

2003 x-type codes help. P0037, P0300, P0305, P1111 (pend), P1316. Any help with explaining these codes will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Code p1313 p1316 p1111 p0301 means what?


Odd one this to have P1111 as well.

According to my data P1111 is all dtc checks compleated, http://www.bluejag.co.uk however some websites show it as a Intake Air Temperature (IAT) Sensor Circuit Intermittent High Voltage, I'm fairly sure that the latter is incorrect.

check the basics first plugs, leads, corroded ground connections etc then its a bit of a guessing game


As for the other codes

P0301 = Misfire detected - cylinder 1
P1313 = Misfire rate catalyst damage - bank 1
P1316 = Misfire excess emission


Possible causes (as per JTIS):

Cylinder compression low
Worn camshaft / broken valve spring(s)
Fuel delivery pressure (low / high)
Fuel injector(s) restricted / leaking
Fuel injector(s) continuously open
Fuel contamination
Fuel injector circuit fault(s)
(Injector DTCs also flagged)
Spark plug failure / fouled / incorrect gap
ECM to ignition coil primary circuit fault
(Cylinder misfire detected DTC also
flagged)
Ignition coil failure

hope this helps

03 ponitac grand am would not start 2 different times, it starts about 10 minutes later, it rolls over but doesn't start. Maybe a fuel pump or crank sensor I don't know any ideas?


Failure-to-start scenarios are often an issue of "fuel or spark?"

To check fuel pump, install a fuel pressure gauge on the Shrader valve connector on the
fuel rail, reading ???? - I couldn't find the spec for nominal fuel pressure.....

One good source of diagnostic info is your car's computer - commect an OBD-II code
reader to your car's OBD-II port and ask the car what it thinks it wrong - its capable of
posting 100s of possible error codes, any number of which would/could implicate a fuel
system component. Here a (very) short list of possible computer codes your car's computer
may currently be posting:

error code meaning
--------------- -------------
P0107 MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor - low input (to computer)
P0108 MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor - high input (to computer)
P0122 TP (throttle position) sensor - low input (to computer)
P0123 TP (throttle position) sensor - high input (to computer)
P0171 fuel system lean
P0172 fuel system rich
P0201 fuel injector 1 control circuit malfunction
P0202 fuel injector 2 control circuit malfunction
P0203 fuel injector 3 control circuit malfunction
P0204 fuel injector 4 control circuit malfunction
P0300 multiple engine misfire detected
P0301 cylinder 1 misfire detected
P0302 cylinder 2 misfire detected
P0303 cylinder 3 misfire detected
P0304 cylinder 4 misfire detected
P0336 CPS (crankshaft position sensor) range/performance
P06xx control module (computer) failure
