Causes: A code P0307 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Faulty spark plug or wire
* Faulty coil (pack)
* Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
* Faulty fuel injector
* Burned exhaust valve
* Faulty catalytic converter(s)
* Running out of fuel
* Poor compression
* Defective computer

Possible Solutions: If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

I'd suspect a sticking injector--car should have set the check engine light. Read the code(s) to progress further. If the coil pack were a problem, it would not be likely to fix itself. If the codes indicate an injector problem, try an injector cleaner in the fuel--worst case, replace the bad injector. The codes should indicate which cylinder to change the injector.

If the light is flashing - NO. It means you are dumping raw fuel intot eh catalytic converter (very expensive).

If steady, drive sparingly.

01 is cylinder #1 misfiring. Could be spark plug or coil.

16 is misfire detected during start up.

Engine light came on it gave me two code po307 and po316 what does this mean. thanks


1. Before any diagnostics, refer to TSB 06-20-10 from Ford for updated power train control module calibration. In most cases, if the engine runs fine, P0316 code is in memory, this reflash will fix concern. If this doesn't fix it you will need a new PCM.

The p0307 is of the same concern and if the reflash doesn't fix it you will need a new PCM.

2003 mustang gt will skip when it hits about 1,500 rpm but after that it is fine but you can still feel a little skip in it.

I have a similar symptom. No engine light lite. It can be felt as I accelerate moderately from a standing stop. Then as my engine begins a climb in rpm in seems to hesitate for a brief moment and then continue to increase rpm. Not sure what this is.

Is this the symptom you were identifying?
