SOURCE: OBDII code P0306 describes misfire # 6 cyl

I noticed that you didn' t mention the plugs. I'll assume that if you did wires and coils that plugs are also new, so I would say that you need to check the injector on that cylinder

SOURCE: when the car is idling

if vehicle has been standing for a long while it could be the fuel has gone stale but i wouldnt like to say as it could be a multitude of reasons ranging from stale fuel to a mass air flow sensor ,so i would advise that ask a local mechanic to have a look for you

SOURCE: dead cylinder number 2 bad injector number 2

use a digital volt meter,put it on the ohm scale check number 2 fuel injector should be 11 to 16 ohms if not reads zero fuel injector faulty.if numbe 2 fuel injector okay.use noid light hook it to fuel injector electrical connector with fuel injector disconnected and see if pcm is firing the fuel injector noid light should blink when cranking the engine.if light steady pcm not firing 2 fuel injector,if noid light dont light up.there is a open in the wiring connector 2 fuel injector 2. if fuel injector okay,check spark plug, carbon foul you have a bad ignition coil or wire if you see oil on spark plug you have worn piston ring or leaking valve guides allowing oil to foul out spark plug.do a compression test check compression to see condition of the cylinder.

Injector sprays too much fuel after starting. Engine floods out


Suspect (potentially) either a stuck injector, or a failed/failing fuel pressure regulator. One sign of a failed fuel pressure regulator can be gas in the oil. (I suffered that side effect, along with bogging, and black smoke rich running, worsening as warmed up, turned out to be fuel pressure regulator). If the injector is loose in the throttle body, or has bad o-rings, can also cause some wonky behavior. Good luck.

ON A 2004 SUZUKI XL7 2.7 WILL THE EGR VALVE MAKE YOU PUMP THE GAS BEFORE IT STARTS. WHEN IS WARMED UP IT WONT START UNLESS YOU PUMP THE GAS .IF IT SETS OVER NIGHT IT STARTS RIGHT UP


2.7L V6, Good, the rare post with engines stated. like mine. same.
hot starts fail, cold good
can be many things, (we find this with simple tests (ask)
lack of supply air, cranking (IAC stuck closed)
flooding do to , ECT reads wrong or injector leak.
EGR stuck open sure, its a service point, we clean it, then it works.
(works means , at least closed to crank, not pass smog tests)
ever tune it up, get it the full 60kmile tuneup, if not, why not?
spark plugs. C.O.P boots bad? buy new ones,(ask) cheap (ask)
(basics) no hot starts, easy
bad spark. any or all of 6 cylinders.
no air to start (IaC)
too much fuel to start (any of 6 cylinders)



The egr is near imposable to reach on this dog. top center rear of engine.
the IAC is easy. see here. (IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE)

IS Engine idle hot, ever below, 800 RPM? or surging?????

2004 GMC YUKON DENALI idling rough and trouble starting


unless you want to blow up the intake stop giving it gas before you turn it over what you are doing is dangerous all you are doing is dumping raw unburned gas into the bottom of the intake to the motor, one of these times you go to start it it will do this boom really loud then die, it will lift the whole back end of the vehicle off the ground, then if you try to start it again okay I edited the answer also could be your catalytic convertor plugged is the exhaust coming out good, change the sensors whatever you do stop pumping the gas if it wont start now get in as you need silence so shut the door and the radio off can you hear the fuel pump? it will sound like a huum for a few seconds if you cant there is your problem all I can say is stop pumping the gas as that's why its running bad you are burning out the sensors and all the computer code stuff and wasting expensive gas too. you prolly fouled your plugs as well.

Idles rough has power f150


If exhaust is rich, you may have excessive fuel getting dumped into cylinder(s). A sicking or leaking fuel injector can cause this. How many miles are on the engine? Improperly seating valves can cause this also. Or if timing is incorrect.

93' cavalier, very rough running. Missing badly at all speeds and loads, including at idle in park. changed plugs and no change in symptons. Is this an injected motor (4 cyl)?


Yes it is fuel injected. If it runs but has no power there is a good chance that an ignition coil went bad and there would be no spark to two cylinders. Cylinders 1 and 4 are partners on the same coil and 2 and 3 are partners. Usually these cars if an injector goes bad they have an external leak.
You can try to listen to them by holding a screw driver to each on while its running but I don't think
that will be your problem anyway.Another giveaway for the coil could be a gas smell like it is partially flooded. When you changed the plugs were any of them wet with fuel ? There is also a chance that if the engine works ok at highway speeds that the egr valve is stuck open. This causes
rough running at idle and bad hesitation until highway speed is achieved. Hope this helps or let me know and we'll figure it out.

Same issue with the rough idle with a warm engine 4.0 Ranger


i would think a plugged fuel injector on # 6 cylinder could be the problem,or a big vacuum leak at that cylinder
a valve burnt/stuck could be but you dont see much of that anymore
could be coolant leaking into cylinder from leaky haed gasket but you would have to add coolant every so often
i would check #6 cyl. spark plug after driveing around a while if it looks new, ie no deposits on it then an injector would be what i would change next

1989 XJS V12 furl problem


Obviously, fuel and oil should never be in the same spot at the same time. You have a dead cylinder and maybe a stuck-open injector. The black smoke is from a too-rich fuel mix, so the cheap things to look for are in the fuel injection system. Look at the fuel pressure regulator as well. Good luck, and don't forget to relieve the fuel pressure before you do any work on fuel inj. engines!
