How to troubleshoot misfire code p0305 on 1999 vw Passat?


Cyl 5 is misfiring. It could be caused by about 12 different things,
but the most common cause is your Spark Plugs wires need to be
replaced, or your spark plug in Cyl 5 is needing replacement. Those
are the cheap and simple things.

You could have a coil going bad. On some cars the coil pack is
a 2 cylinder per pack, on others 6 cylinders are on one pack. These
are fairly easy to replace and cost about $100.00

It could be a head gasket is leaking a bit of water into the cylinder
from time to time. You might be able to see the evidence by looking
at the spark plug and comparing it with a plug from one of the other
cylinders. This can be an expensive repair.

I had a miss in my 3.0 Liter Taurus engine and since I am not wealthy I did some research and selected a bottle of head gasket sealer that looks like powdered copper in solution. I did NOT add the whole bottle into the reservoir. I put about 4oz in and took the car for
a ride. The next day I put another 4oz in. The miss went away and
has not come back.

If you see lots of oil on Cyl 5 spark plug, get your credit card out and
head for a trusted repair shop. Rings or valve guides are bad.

You have an interference motor. If you had to replace the heads due to the valves possibly touching the motor, you have to consider rechecking the compression after you replaced the heads. I had the same motor that had an intake leak. I found frozen rings on the number 1 piston as well as a bent pushrod. Ultimately, the camshaft had broken due to coolant getting to the bearings. If the spark is good, the fuel is good, then the only other problem you'd have would be compression.

sounds like the only thing left is the valve lash. If the intake gasket was bad, it would most likely cause a vacuum leak and effect the overall performance of the engine. You may also notice some oil consumption as well. Also, verify the firing order is correct.

replace the coil it is most likely bad. observe the engine at night or in a dark environment and proceed to use a spray bottle to lightly coat the coil pack for that cylinder number 3 and if you see an arc at the coil or any where else this will confirm a bad coil but even if you don't see any arcing it still may be a weak coil.

99 dodge caravan #4 cylinder misfires, i replaced spark plug wires and spark plugs. Scanner showed #4 still misfiring, could this be the coil?


It could very well be a bad coil pack,or you have low compression in that cylinder.If the compression is good then go with the coil pack,if not you may need a head gasket or an intake manifold gasket.

Misfire #3 cylinder


Has anyone found the problem? My 2003 has #3 cyclinder misfire and I have replaced the plugs and wires. It runs rough at idle but smooths out at highway speed. Anyone have any knowledge on this? This sounds like a common problem.

#6 cylinder misfire


Could be a valve seat burnt, check compression, if lower than the rest, probably that or a head gasket leak next to #6.
Borrow or buy a compression tester or get a garage to test for you.
To fix you will have to determain wether the valve can be ground back in or a new seat is required, but either way, as it's a big job, get all the valves done as if one has gone, how long before more go?
