Could be the spark plug, and/or plug wire,or fuel injector, coil, if the coil pack has a separate coil for each cyl. have them checked.

Cylinder 1 misfire detectedrich or lean air/fuel mixture fuel injecter fault and faulty crank shaft sensor


Wow... Thats a lot of diagnostic codes. First... The cyl #1 misfire will cause the Engine to run rich giving you a rich running engine. Therefore the rich lean code. This misfire on cyl #1 can also throw a crankshaft sensor code as it will slow down engine rpm. I would change the spark plug and ignition coil to cyl#1 and have the codes erased and see if that solves the problem. If not, you then need to persue any codes that may reappear.

2004 Sorento began with code P0305, cyl #5 misfire. Inspected and replaced plugs, wires, and coil pack on cyl #2. Repair shop told me cyl #5 injector bad so they replaced. Still has misfire.I suggeste


If you had code P0305, I don't know why they would have done anything to the #2 cylinder but if they have already replaced the plugs, wires and injector; here are a few more items to check:
1) Check connections from ECM. Look for any corrosions or bent/broken pins.
2) Check the fuel line pressure
3) Check the engine compression
4) And if the above are good, then you will probably have a defective ECM

CEL light flashing-shuddering when idle. 03 passat 1.8 Turbo. Thinking its an air leak somewhere? Can hear air but can't figure out where its coming from...


A flashing cel indicates misfiring. A common problem is a bad ignition coil. The easiest route for diagnosis is the check the trouble codes(autozone and some other parts stores will scan for free, or an OBDII code reader is not too expensive to buy). The code should tell you which cylinder is misfiring(PO301 means cyl #1, 302 cyl #2, etc). Once you know which it is, swap the ignition coils around. If you have a #1 misfire, swap coils 1 and 4, clear the codes, then check it again. If the misfire moves, you know you've got a bad coil. If the misfire is air or fuel related, as with an intake leak, other codes should come up as well as the misfire.

Help on finding out wind star coads PP0171-/-P074-/-P0401


first PO171 o2 bank 1 s1 lean PO174 o2 bank2 lean
PO401 cyl 1 misfire
when an engine misfires the oxygen sensor will read the oxygen from that cyl sensor doesnt read fuel so every misfire is a air pump to diagnose we have to fix misfire first check the coil wires and plugs for cyl 1 use spray bottle with water run engine hot at idle spray wires with water if enging runs rough shakes or stalls then replace the wires dont spray with to much water if the wires are real bad you may not be able to restart engine

try this first once fix misfire clear codes and drive it

plz comment vote reply if you need more help

1998 Park Avenue: it may not be getting fuel how can i verify this??...


the easiest and fastest way is to listen for pump activation when you turn you key to the on posistion turn your radio off turn the key to on (just before the point of starting)and you should be able to hear the humming or vibrating if you dont then you are not getting fuel. if the pump is working or you cant tell if it is go to the fuel rail look foe a cap that looks like a valve stem cap take this cap off and push the stem in if you get fuel then you know that you donthave a fuel problem if you dont get fuel to the rail then its probably the pump. hope this helps you.

Used seafoam in oil engine misfiring


determine when it misfires, and isolate cylinders. a poormans method is use an infrared temperature gun (one with high range, 700 degrees or more is preferable) and with engine held at rev(say 2500) point at each exhaust port 1 by 1, misfiring holes have colder exhaust than firing holes.
If the misfire is momentary or intermittant, or caused by defective cam or crank sensors, you should see professional help...those problems require more advanced equipment to get the 1st time, unless you dont mind lobbing expensive parts randomly till you get lucky

TIMING PROBLEM


I dont think that u have a timing probing but just to be sure I would recheck the timing, (remove timing belt cover, set crank to zero and make sure both cams line up with the marks on the engine) if thats all good the u have a prob with that particular cylinder. first thing I would do is swap the coil pack from cyl 3 with another cylinder (like cyl 1) then start the car if the misfire code goes from P0303 (Cyl 3) to P0301 (Cyl 1) then u know u have a bad coil pack. try that and let me know what happens
