Question about 2002 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

My mercury sable 2002 motor Ustyle idals bad code p0316,301,303 come up changed spark plugs and wires still showing same codes what should i check now

Posted by on

1 Answer

PO301 & PO 303 are cylinder misfire in the cyclinders
indicated by the codes last number #1 & #3

Spark Plugs get replaced every 3 years or so & have
nothing to do with resolving any misfire issues, unless
they were in the motor for 80,000 miles & worn out

Spark Plug wire easily last 12 to 15 years or more &
usually only fail because they are mishanded & too often

You problem IF the codes are correct & they are not all the
time,is a bad ignition module or individual coil if that is
what you have

    What you should have done in the beginning & now is have the professionals at a repair shop that understand how to diagnose & resolve those issues take care of doing so If I had the car & was in your driveway we could run tests on the car,road test & discuss a lot of things,that isn't practical to guess & suggest things online & misled you into installing more parts when you most likely never needed any

SOURCE: How do you access the spark plugs 2002 mercury mountaineer

IIRC these are a coil over design. meaning the coil is over the plug. the coil should have one 8mm bolt holding it on the lower intake manifold. remove the coild to get to the spark plugs. look by the fuel injectors, coil should be just next to it or very close. coil usually says motorcraft on it and circle in design.

good luck

SOURCE: mercury sable 2002 serpentine belt change

There are also two serpentine belt types for the 2002 sable. The S and U type engine. Take the old belt with you the the parts store. As for the diagram, I googled it under images and about a dozen correct ones came up. Remember the 2002 sable is the same as the 2002 Tarus.

Barring any vacuum leaks, P0401 is indicative of a bad EGR valve. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Engine Code 301


Code # 301??? That is NOT a valid Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) for the engine control system on a 2000 Mercury Sable.

Assuming that you mean P0301, that is a cylinder misfire code that is identifying number 3 cylinder as the cylinder with the misfire problem. MANY things can cause a cylinder to misfire including spark plugs, spark plug wires or boots, burnt valves, broken valve springs, blow head gaskets, cracked cylinder heads, bad or dirty injectors, faulty injector control circuits, Failed ignition coils...the list goes on....proper diagnosis required.

My car is cutting off every time im going under 1000rpm. mercury sable 2002. codes were p0301 p0302 and p0316 until i changed crank sensor and spark plugs now it says p0316 p0305 p0306.. whats going on?...


Hi

P0305 is misfire in cylinder #5.
P0306 is misfire in cylinder#6.
P0316 is misfire on start up.
Have the plugs on those 2 cylinders, and the 2 fuel injectors checked, also check for spark from the coil on those 2 plug wires.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

yes about the upper intake and the only way i know how to check the coils is with a engine anilyser or if the check engine light comes on then you can have the codes pulled and that will tell you which cylender is missfiring this engine has a indevidual coil for each spark plug so thares 6 of them and thay slide right down over the sparkplugs

without a fault code its impossible to diagnose. try pep boys or aamco or auto zone they will pull the code for you, usually for free. The code will relate to a sensor or area to be fixed. This will save you money and needless parts . post the code or codes so we can help
