Do a cylinder leak down test, to check for valves not sealing



If they are good, I would say your timing chain & gears are worn

& need to be replaced.



Everyone replaces parts for no reason, because nothing is visually

looked at, or anything at all tested, to even see if any parts are necessary.



Everyone lives in the 1960\'s, but fails to work like we were still there

& it bits you



Everyone skips the basics of the mechanical

condition of the engine



If it has a distributor, pull the cap off & put the motor at TDC

& I bet the Rotor doesn\'t line up where it should because the

top timing gear is worn & the timing is retarded



Need correct fuel pressure & can\'t have a clogged exhaust

My Chevy venture 2002 van doesn't start. Good


You replace parts as part of your preventative
maintenance program,not to solve a problem
When working on a problem only component testing
will find the issues
You need to check for fuel pressure at the motor with a gauge
You check spark with a test plug you buy,not ground a plug
or wire on the vehicle
You can check for compression or cylinder leak down
to test some mechanical issues
I would assume ALL Fuse & links have been checked,as
well as battery voltage 12.6 v or more & cables etc
The ignition switch could be bad,turns starter but not all
the internal contacts are good

Why are cylinders 1 3 and 5 are miss firing 1997 toyota camry


you cannot change oxygen sensors from front to back as they are 2 completely different units doing completely different jobs
the problem is water in the electronics and you use a dewatering fluid ( wd-40 or like ) to disperse the water not starter fluid

1997 acura radio not working


Swapping Coils from one cylinder to another is a waste of time
& does nothing
The reason is that coils only break down when the vehicle is
driven 20 miles or more & get hot. Doing that on a really hot day
speeds up your time frame on getting the job done

You buy one new coil or more & you put one new coil in a cylinder,
starting with any cyl that have a PO301 thru PO306 code

If that doesn't get rid of the bad coil ,you put the old one back
& walk the new coil to the next cylinder

When you disconnected the battery which is not necessary as long
as the ign key is of,you did something to the security system

I have no experience with that on your make car,I'm sorry
If you don't get an answer here there is plenty on the internet
to find & get the system reset.

If you have to, just walk in the open service bay door at a
dealer & I'm sure any tech will help you for free

P0305 misfire in cylinder 5


take the main pulley off and the harmonic balencer off and re-time the marks on the timing chain to make sure that your timing marks are perfecto if that doesn't help then re-time your distributor with the distributor gun if that doesn't help replace the spark plug and wire in cylinder 5 and if that doesn't work then you are probably gonna have to take the motor apart and replace the rods or bearings or valves

I have a '97 cavalier and it won't fire after I changed the plugs. I believe the wires are on the correct plugs. however, if I take a plug out and leave it in the wire, set it on engine block, the...


1 coil pack is for cylinder 1 & 3 . The 1st & 3rd....moving back from the belts. 1 is on the top, three on the bottm of the coil. 2 & 4 should be the same, 2nd cylinder, 2nd back from the belts & top on the coil pack. 4 the last plug & lowest on the second coil pack. PLEASE NOTE: , A Handyman's Service manual, from an auto store can VERIFY THIS. My last experience was with the 1987- 1991 GM "Quad" 4 engines. One of the other experts on "FixYa" corrected a mistake I made on a newewr model. SO I WOULD CHECK this advise to A MANUAL. I was wrong on the other one I answewred, & do not want to add to your frustration. I have looked around my textbooks, I do not have one on that car, I have given it away.

HAD TRAILBLAZER PUT ON COMPUTER. SAID #3 CYLINDER MISFIRE DETECTED.CODE # WAS P0303.I PUT HIGH GRADE GAS IN, CHANGED ALL 6 PLUGS, AND COIL ON #3 CYLINDER. NOTHING WORKED. IT STILL SPUTTERS.CAN YOU HELP ME...


What money?

Who is working on it,a repair shop?

Plugs don't fix a misfire
A bad coil would,if you got the correct one.

There are no computers used for any automotive
diagnostic work what so ever,unless you run scan
tool software on your notebook

Need to continue to look at all data related to
whatever problem you now have,since changing
plugs & coil

No check lights on dash, doesn't mean they aren't
stored in data

You could have worn out O2 Sensors,Bad TPS Sensor,
Vacuum Leaks & Evap Issues,& any number of things

Look at fuel trim,timing,smoke test intake & evap

Timing belt broke at about 55 miles per hour. do you think the valves are bent and what parts do I need to buy other than belt? Oh 2001 hyundai sonada with 2.6L motor. THANKS Jimmy


The 2.4l and 2.5l engines are interference engines, meaning it is highly likely that you bent your valves when your timing belt broke. Besides the timing belt, you may need a new belt tensioner and pulleys. I would replace the water pump too.

2005 Chrysler Pacifica 3.5 V6, has a code that says bad crank sensor, got a new one, want to know the location of the crank sensor for that model


Codes don't tell you anything is bad

They are used to diagnose & component test
a sensor or other parts of a system

You only replace a part if it fails a test

If your not testing the system & it's components,
how would you know what does work & what doesn't?
