i would definately replace the coil. pretty certain that will solve your problem. do not drive with misfire or that can cause fruther damage such as catalyst failing, which is prety expensive.

How to repair car showing dianostic code P0316


P0316 is a code that sets when the pcm detects a cylinder missfire at initial start up. Do you feel a rough idle when you first start it up? Its common for the ignition coils to fail on the 3.9v6 on the LS due to water intrusion. If you have access to a scanner you can see which cylinder it is that is missfiring and swap coils and spark plugs with other cylinders. If the missfire follows either then you can determine that the fault is in the coil or spark plug.

While driving the car started to miss badly, the check engine light came on then began to flash. checked for codes, engine missfire was the only stored code. owners man. said cat. problem ?


It's not a cat problem or you'd have misfires on all cylinders. P0300 is random misfires, and the codes increment to show what cylinder is misfiring. P0301 is a misfire on cylinder 1, P0302 is cylinder 2, etc. You likely have a bad coilpack. Whichever cylinder is indicated, replace that coilpack.

What does the code "misfire on bank 1 mean" on a diagnostic code for a 2000 lincoln navigator mean?


Do you mean "missfire on cylinder 1", code P0301? If so, that means that the computer has detected incomplete combustion in the #1 cylinder, which would be the front passenger side cylinder. There are many potential causes to a cylinder missfire ranging from worn / bad ignition components, clogged / bad fuel injector or even internal engine damage.

However the most common cause, especially on ford vehicles is a bad ignition coil. When trying to determine the cause of a missfire on an engine such as the one in your Navigator i start with removing the plug and checking for carbon tracing, excessive plug gap or contaminants on the plug. If that checks out ok i then swap the ignition coil from the missfiring cylinder to one that isn't. For example, I would swap the ignition coil from #1 to #2 and clear the codes. Then drive around until the light comes back. If it comes back with a missfire on cylinder #2 then you know the cause is the ignition coil and it has to be replaced. If it doesn't then it is something else causing the missfire which will require a bit more diagnostics.

How many miles are on your Navigator? Have the plugs ever been replaced? If you have close to 100k it would be a good idea to replace all of the plugs. Be careful when removing the plugs, it's not difficult to pull the threads right out of the head when removing the plug.

Chevy suburban 5.3 2006 random missfire on all cylinders


Have you used all the gas that was previously in the tank, It sounds like you have a slight water in the gas. If you haven't used any gas since it started this, then I would drain it out and re-fill it. Also what type of plugs are you running, this will have an impact on how the engine performs. Some people use the most expensive platinum plug and the engine will only perform with the mid platinum or the OEM. I have seen a lot of cars like this and once the plugs are changed to a OEM or a little better plug, the problems go away. Good luck.

I have a missfire code on the check engine light. 1997 honda prel


Find out which cylinder is missfiring by using an inductive timing light to check each plug wire for spark. If you find a dead wire you should replace the all the wires and spark plugs. If you don't find a dead wire check the distributor cap. You could have a broken contact or a crack which might cause a loss of spark at one cylinder.

Honda wires are much better than their aftermarket counterparts so don't skimp there.

I hope this helps. Good luck and be careful!
