Question about 2002 Mazda MPV

2001 MPV Runing Rough at Idle & low end Throttle


I used my buddy's OBDII tester and it pulled p0303 and p0174 codes.
#3 misfire / lean bank 2

I've changed the plugs/wires/coil. I suspected it was the coil as I pulled #3 wire at the coil and while the engine was at idle there was no spark and no change in engine idle. I pulled all the other wires and there was spark on 1/2/5/6. #4 wire had no spark also at idle. I am going to put the stock coil back in to check and see if there is a difference.

As for the lean bank 2 code, I replaced the upper intake gasket. I didn't change the lower [and I know I may have to] but I just wanted to see if there would be a difference and there is still no change in engine. I sprayed carb/throttle cleaner around all areas and I didn't see/hear any vacuum leaks or change in engine rev.

As for the PCV hose, I changed that last year.

I'm just stumped that there is no spark in #3 and #4 at the coil. I even revved the motor thinking there would be some spark at higher rev but no go.

I ran across a thread about a defective crank angle sensor. I'm wondering if this could be possible. My other buddy said it could be dirty O2 sensors.


Also I took the crank angle sensor off and cleaned it and the connector. I started up and no difference. I also checked #3 and #4 at the coil and still no spark at idle or rev. I even switched both spark plug cables at the coil and no difference in engine run.

The lean condition is the big clue here it indicates a lack of fuel which is causing the mis-fire on #3. I would suspect a fuel injector is clogged or not getting a pulse from the PCM. ( pulse is the electronic signal)

This could be a bad fuel injector. Lean implies low fuel to the cylinder which will cause a misfire.

I have several codes on my 1998 windstar they are P0303, p0171, P0402 and P0174. Is there one or two items I can change that may resolve some or all these codes?


The 303 is a misfire, and if there's no issue with the plugs or wires, I've replace a TON of ignition coils. If you remove the coil pack and see ANY type of crack in the mold on the bottom, replace it, it's done! The 171 and 174 are typically the intake plenum seals. The plenum gasket doesn't need to be replace, but the lower seals and bolt/seal kit (the bolts that hold it on to the intake manifold) require changing.

Fault codes P0355, P0171, P0174 on ford expedition 2001 what do i need to fix


The P0355 code is, "Ignition Coil E Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction" this has to do with the coil(s) and the coil may be going bad, or you have a bad wire / plug (connection) to the coil. P0171 is "System Too Lean (Bank 1)" and P0174 is " System Too Lean (Bank 2)" . The P017X codes mean your ox2 sensors are picking up a lean burn condition. Engine running to warm (hot) or your coolant temp sensor is not reading right or one of the ox2 sensors (Bank 1) is going bad. Hard to trouble shoot this from my computer desk.

What does code P0174 and P0304 mean


PO304--is # 3 cylinder misfiring
PO174---is a lean O2 Sensor Code on bank 2,
from the misfire


So you find the cause, of the ignition misfire,and NO,
it is not spark plugs,wires and a long list of parts, that
never fail.

It is a bad ignition coil or igntion module,which ever applies.

Failed OBDII Diagnstic trouble codes P0761 and O1744 What does this mean?


code P0761-
Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid 3 valve
- Shift solenoid 3 valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid 3 valve circuit is open or shorted
P0761 FORD Description Shift solenoid valve 3 is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position. When is the code detected? The P0761 code is detected when the ECM has detected a mechanical fault with the solenoid energized, valve stuck off code O1744- is not a code these are the ones I have found that come close

2003 Ford Ranger 4x4 extended cab- diagnostics checked and got these codes- P0171, P0174, P0300, P0316. Can you tell me what they mean?


P0171------ system too lean bank#1
Po174------ system too lean bank#2
For these 2 codes, try cleaning the maf sensor (mass air flow), that is mounted in the big black hose that goes from the air filter housing to the throttle plate, if it is dirty, that will cause those 02 sensors to send a signal to the computor to lean the air fuel mixture. If cleaning it doesn't work, the sensors will probably need changing.
P0300---- Random/multiple cylinder misfire
P0316---- Cylinder misfire at start up---- first 100 revolutions.
On those 2 codes, you have to do some testing to find out why there is a misfire.
Possible causes:
dirty/malfunctioning injectors
weak coil pack
fowling spark plugs/wires
Low fuel pressure

Ford f-150 running rough


Ok P0174 Is bank 2 (drivers side) is running lean
P0350 is an ignition coil primary circuit malfunction
P1127 indicates the HO2S heater(s) were not on during KOER Self-Test and testing of the HO2S did not occur.Engine not operating long enough prior to performing KOER Self-Test.
P1780 means that the OD switch on gear shifter was not cycled off then on during self test.
I would recommend re-running your self test and make sure to warm the engine up first and make sure to cycle the od switch on/off during the test and recheck the codes.
P0174 lean code could be caused by a miss-fire and P0350 could be caused by anything in the ignition(coil,plug,wires,etc.).
If the P0174 and P0350 repeat I would concentrate on the cylinders in bank 2. If you have a spark tester you could hook it to each of those plug wires individually and look for a weak spark. or try and unhook each wire one at a time and see if you can find a weak cylinder that way by the amount of rpm drop and replace the components on that cylinder and retest.
