If it has a ignition coil over each cylinder very common for them to go out. easy change once you get to it only two bolts pops off new one pops on gl if thats your problem. if no coils over cylinders check your coil pack, faulty wire, faulty plug GL

Assuming the plugs and wires have been changed. I would look at the bottom of the coil pack. They tend to crack and short out.

Or if it's got coil packs they will also crack and short out.

well..fuel injection systems are more than the electronic part. I suspect you are dealing with compression or injector fouling issues..

milage on this shouldn't matter, the light being on is probly just stuck, however you maay wanna check to be sure the brakes aint hangin up a little,

Also the surging can be causeed by the fuel pump goin out, may not be the case but something to look for, it will show up as random misfires as well, maybe try a good fuel addative, (could have a little water in it, check the fuel filter as well, alot of cars now days have a charcol filter and when they go bad they can be a issue, Pick up tube could also have a hole in it, the fuel pumpo on theese cars should be in the tank and are not fun to replace,

hope one of theese suggestions helps, there are many thing that can cause the problem your describing

SOURCE: MY #2 CYLINDER IS MISFIRING ON A 2004 F-150 SUPER CREW CAB

First of all, a 2004 model engine has no spark plug wires. Exchange the #2 coil located on top of the spark plug chamber with #1 coil and see if that changes the misfire to that cylinder. Yes, it could be a bad plug if they are aged, but the norm is with the coil.

SOURCE: Cylinder #1 misfire on a Ford Taurus SHO

Did you check the condition of the spark plug? If the plug is good do a compression check; a very low reading could indicate a sticking intake valve (sticking open). The easyest and cheapest way to fix a sticking valve is to introduce 1/2 can of Sea Foam into the air intake manafold; just follow the instructions on the can except you will use 1/2 can instead of 1/3 can. That Yamaha motor from what I have found collects tons of gunk on the valve stems. Good luck.

I have check engine code P1354 variable valve timing system bank 2 for my 2000 Lexus RX300. Where is this located?


YES, you have to investigate what is throwing your valve timing off. That could be anything from a vacuum leak to clogged injectors, bad plugs, sensor ect. Have the car analyzed to find the cause. There can be many causes. Good luck

I have a 2007 ford taurus with p0300-p0303, p0306, p0316, p2195 and p2196. engine doesnt start anymore but battery is fine.


The old give me money for nothing statement from a mechanic instead of knowing how to fix it.
code p0300 refers to random/ multiple cylinder/s misfire detected===causes--spark plug/s---HT lead/s---injector/s---ignition coil/s--low compression--wiring
code po303 refers to cylinder 3 misfire detected--- engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition/ fuel system---injector --ECT/MAF sensor --- ECM
code p0306 refers to cylinder 6 misfire detected===causes --engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition / fuel system---injector ---ECT/MAF sensor---ECM
code po316 refers to misfire detected during start up--first 1000 revs==causes--engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition /fuel system---injector
code po2195 refers to heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 1 bank 1 signal stuck lean===cayses ---HO2S---fuel pressure---injectors---intake leak
it also refers to O2S sensor 1 bank 1 same causes and also refers to HO2S 1 bank 1 implausible signal===causes --- short to positive---short to ground---Ho2S ---ECM
code po2196 refers to the same items as 2195 . some causes are also air intake restricted
Have a compression test done some where else and it will indicate the condition of the motor. The rest is sensors and wiring problems.

2003 grand marquis with misfire code p0316


The first problem you have is assuming that the ignition coil is the only thing that can cause a misfire.

Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0316 is a "continuous memory only" code that indicates that there is a fault causing a misfire during the first 1000 revolutions of the crankshaft immediately after engine start-up. This should be accompanied by the regular cylinder misfire monitors (Codes P0301 through P0310) unless the misfire does not continue long enough for the regular misfire monitors to determine which cylinder is misfiring.

In order to determine what is actually causing the problem, you must have access to a scan tool that can perform Key On Engine Off (KOEO) fault testing and Key On Engine Running (KOER) fault testing as well as interfacing with the onboard engine computer to read live data and perform system tests.

Please note that generic OBD code readers DO NOT have the capabilities to do what you need to diagnose this problem. You will most likely get additional DTCs that can help lead you to find the source of the problem when KOEO and KOER tests are run. Generic OBD code readers can access only continuous memory DTCs.

Possibilities/conditions/systems that can cause this code are:
>Camshaft Position Sensor
>Low fuel: less than 1/8 tank
>Stuck open EGR Valve
>Blocked EGR passages
>Ignition system
>Fuel Injectors
>Fuel injector control circuits
>Running out of fuel
>EVAP canister purge valve
>Fuel Pressure
>Evaporative emissions system
>Base engine (mechanical) problems

I have a 2000 RX300 that all of a sudden started throwing codes P0300, P0305 and P0306 and at the same time the transmision would not shift into high gear. I know what the codes mean but can cylinder...


It can if the misfire is bad enough. 300 tells you that you have a random misfire, 305 tells you misfire on cylinder 5, and 306 misfire on cylinder 6. Correct these and your vehicle should improve, however I would check the codes once again after this issue is corrected to determine if another DTC code was missed.

2000 honda crv p1399 and p0301 check engine codes


Code P1399 is specific to Honda - it is an error code for "multiple variable misfires detected". P0301-P0304 are common OBDC codes for all cars, specifically "misfire in cylinder X".

You will get the P0301-P0304 codes on your OBDC reader when you plug it in (if actually errors), but will only find the P1399 if you select Honda as the manufacturer.

Just got these errors today on my CRV 2000. Now I have to figure out what is causing two of the cylinders to misfire.

I have a 1997 ford taurus 6 cylinder that has a ''misfire'' diagnostics reading. It says cylinder six. I have changed all the spark plugs and wires and reset the code, the check engine light came back on....


Vacuum lines will not cause a specific cyl misfire. You may have a bad coil pack, or bad injector. You will need to make sure you have spark at the specific cyl listed for the misfire, and can test to see if you have injector pulse using a noid lite. Also, and good scan tool can show you live data, and allow you to watch the components operation, and give you a good starting point to determine the miss.
