Question about 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Engine code p0307, what can it be
P0307 Code - Cylinder #7 Misfire
Cylinder #7 Misfire Detected
What does that mean? A P0307 code means that the the car's computer has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing properly. In this case it's cylinder #7.
SymptomsSymptoms may include:
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

I have found a few factors to give this code. A weak coil , a failing or weak distributor module (located on the firewall by the master cylinder,or on some models located directly on the distributor) Or just simply time for a tune up.

What year is the truck ? if its a 1998 im sure its never had a tune up i would start with replacing the spark plugs and there is a very good chance that a coil is also bad
