Question about 1996 Chevrolet Beretta

1 Answer

Spark plug misfiring

I have a 1996 chevrolet beretta 3.1L, and the codes was tested by AAMCO and they said that # 2,4,6 is misfiring or not firing at all.
Is there anyway to find out how to find out why it is and the valves or
lifter are making a loud tapping, so can anybody help me out?
Please send me an email @ steve_87@hotmail.com Thanks

What other codes , need to diagnose those codes before P1133 !
Important: If any DTCs are set (except P1133 or P1134), go to those DTCs before proceeding with this diagnostic table. If the vehicle is misfiring is there a DTC P0300 Engine Misfire Detected code ?

Ck engine light is on and miss fire #5


There are few possibilities that can cause engine misfire issues. It can be issue with spark plugs or faulty spark plugs. Also get the compression test done for cylinders. If any of cylinder shows low compression then required, then that particular cylinder will cause misfire.

Also get obd codes scanned, the error code will let you know which cylinder is misfiring or all cylinders are misfiring.

Error Code P0302 1996 Volvo 850 GLT


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0302 has a generic description of "Cylinder Misfire - Cylinder Number 2".

A misfire simply means that when it came time for that cylinder to fire, it missed its chance.
There are many things that can cause a misfire. Some of the things are listed below. Diagnostics should be performed to eliminate the possible causes so you don't spend a lot of money replacing parts trying to "guess" what is causing it.

These are just SOME of the possible causes:

> Spark plugs
> Ignition cables
> Ignition coil
> Distributor cap (if equipped)
> Fuel injector
> Fuel injector circuits
> Burned engine valves
> Blown head gasket
> Cracked cylinder head
> Piston damage
> Cylinder block damage
> Broken valve springs
> Damaged camshaft
> Vacuum leaks

1996 tahoe , codes are showing random misfire


Do an injector balance test and a cylinder leakage test. Lets make sure its not fuel related. Most important lets make sure you don't have a vacuum leak.

Engine light keeps comeing on mecanic change o2 senser worked for half hour came back on cods keep saying its miss fireing have had this problem for a month know


Start Small work to Big = Saved Money!
The Code(s) should be telling the specific cylinder(s) that are misfiring. Do you know waht the code is?
Target those cylinders 1st before testing the unaffected cylinders.
The following should isolate the problem(s).
1. Spark plugs - take out-reconnect back to wires and test spark plugs for getting sparks. If none: Don't replace them yet. GO TO 2. If the spark plugs are worn, dirty them replace them.
2. Remove spark plugs form end of ignition wires and test for spark from the wire. If none: Don't replace them yet. GO TO 3.
3. Remove the wires from the coil connection and test the coil for spark for each cylinder. If none: Don't replace it yet.
4. Test each spark plug and wires this way.
5. Coil Packs normally provide fire for 2-cylinders at the same time. The two are paired across from one another.
6. Test the coil for fire, amount of fire and if there is both cyclinders firing.
Misfire and the O2 Sensor got replaced??
Good Luck and get back with me if you need additional help or if this solved the problem.
