Check the coolant level, it may be overheating. if it will start again, start it, and while running, watch the temperature guage. overheating would deffinately make an engine cut off after running for a short period of time. if the temp climbs near the red zone of the guage, dont let it get there, cut it off, and check the cooling system.
another cause could be the fuel delivery. fuel pressure varies at different temperatures, so if it will start when its cold then dies at normal operating temp, it could just not be getting enough gas after it is warm as the pressure has changed. if it isnt the temperature, try running some fuel injector cleaner through it (cheap additive to gas found at almost any gas station) but dont get your hopes up :p cuz its usually not the cheap stuff that fixes cars unfortunately.

SOURCE: I HAVE A 1996 INTREPID.

Maybe check the flex plate. I had a 94 concorde with a similar problem. Scanner said it was the cam and crank sensors. The flex plate can get a crack around the bolt pattern which allows it to shimmy when running. throwing off the cam and crank somehow as the mechanic tried to explain to me.

SOURCE: 1998 dodge ram pickup 318 eng.

If the engine seems to run fine over 1450 RPM maybe there is a vacuum hose leaking or EGR valve is slightly stuck open. Any help from the OBD II trouble codes? Or is there simply no MIL and no stored information in the OBD II computer read at the local parts store through the connector by the drivers knee?

SOURCE: 04' Ram 1500, bad mis-fire. cust repl s/plugs. no

You still have random misfires (PO300)
You most likely replaced those coils that set a code, and those were not the one bad offender,spiking the computer module.
Take a new coil and put in a cylinder,no change, replace old coil and move new one to next cylinder. You can do that once or twice a day, if you have nothing else to do. You need a 90 degree day, to really get that solved,unless you have an ignition oscilloscope.
Never had a bad spark plug in 45 years.

Check engine light on engine acts as if missing new plugs wires and #5 spark pack missing again 6cyl 4x4 3.4 185000 miles


was it running this way before you changed the plugs? just a shot in the dark here possibly a defective spark plug, rare but not impossible. if it was running fine before changing them. Other wise I would take it to autozone and pull codes if it is P0350 #5 misfire we would use the process fuel, fire and compression. is there any engine coolant around any cylinders? Have you checked the coil packs? could be a bad coil pack. if no evidence of fluid around them proceeded to check for spark, fuel then compression. post back results or new post with more deductions. iis it no spark no fuel or bad compression.

Misfire in two cylinders


Check to see if the two cylinders misfiring are on the same coil pack. If so, change the coil pack in question.

This happened to me on 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine.

Also, check for a blown head gasket with compression test.

I have a ford explorer 99 but it's giving a error code PO306 what do u think it is


It sounds like a misfire. Check spark plugs 5 and 6. It could be bad fuel, bad plug wire, or weak coil. Check the fuel injectors as well. Other possible causes could be an egr valve stuck open, vacuum leaks, low fuel pressure.

Code p0302


Look at the wire and plug to cylinder 2, for cracks or damage, if nothing is found run a compression test need 100psi min, and then check the injector, you need to meshure resistance with a multimeter, and compare to other injectors something like 12 to 15 ohms would be good i think.
