It really depends on what's causing the misfire. Spark plug is cheap, a couple of dollars, a bad plug wire couple of dollars, Coil pack,$100+, a bad injector $100 +, a bad cam lobe $1500 - $2000. You really need to have it diagnosed by a pro. Dies it happen when it's wet out or does it happen all the time? If you're mechanically inclined, I'd say new plugs, wires, remove and clean the coil packs be sure to sand off any corrosion and rust off of all mating surfaces for these Even the lips of the bolts that secure them down to the engine block....I had my own experience with this on my wifes Saturn just about a month ago.

    The mechanic's diagnosis said it was regular wear and tear. Also mentioned the ignition valve was related to the caused. Quoted a price of around $250.

check your wire harness on the top of the engine. Volvo must have bought harnesses from Mercedes. The insulation just cracks and disintegrates, then the wires short. Not good for an ignition system.Once they short It can fry the circuit for that cylinder in the computer. Does not set a code other than Misfire.

Are you consider yourself a handy person?

Swap the coil and see is the misfire going to follow to another bank of cylinder.

You has total of 3 coil in your engine.

Do a detail record map and switch the two coils.

A replacement aftermarket coil is oil $46 w/one year warranty and $55 will get you a life time warrent coil.

Do the swap and see what happen.

A leaky/failing injector can also cause the same problem.

Do a Chevron Techron fuel injector clean ran and highway ran.

Good luck

How do I fix the code p 0303 misfire number 3 cylinder

Change the coil pack from cylinder 3 to cylinder 1. If you get a code p0301 after the swap, then that coil pack is bad, replace it. If you still get a p0303, then check the wiring to coil pack 3. If you have a combination coil pack, then replace the whole unit.

Try replacing the spark plugs and I HIGHLY recommend factory plugs, they run way better and last way longer. From LOTS of personal experience. Plugs are the most common cause of misfires in a Volvo

1999 Volvo S70 emitting black smoke from exhaust

Sounds like computer to me , black smoke might just be due to fuel /air mixture.
Avoid dealerships , find a reputable mechanic.
Almost any shop can plug your car into a diagnostic computer .
If you live close to me , I would be happy to take an s-70 off your hands :)
