Why is there a cylinder 2 misfire?


Check these three things in the misfiring cylinder: spark, gas, and compression. One of them is wrong or missing. For spark check the spark plug and wire. Make sure you have spark on the plug wire, a strong blue spark. For gas, the fuel/air mixture may be wrong. Does the fuel injector pulse, putting gas into the cylinder? Possibly you may have a leaking injector or a clogged injector.

If gas and spark seem okay, you need to check compression in the cylinder. Low compression will cause a misfire. If compression is 20 or 25% lower than adjacent cylinders, that could be causing a misfire. For example, say numbers 1 and 3 cylinders had about 150 psi compression. 80% of 150 = 120, so if cylinder 2 is 120psi or less, that could be setting the misfire code. Low compression can be caused by valves not seating well, or bad piston rings, bad head gasket- something in the combustion area of the cylinder is losing compression.

What it means


It's cylinder #2 misfire. Change your spark plugs and ignition wires. If you find oil in the spark plug tubes replace value cover gasket

07 a4 2.0/cylinder 2 misfires and the car shakes so bad / cylinder 2 has no compression


if you getting spark and fuel no compression could be broken or damaged piston ring or head gasket leak at that cylinder.

Your first mistake is thinking that the only thing that can cause a misfire is a coil or spark plug. Misfires can be caused by MANY things, including faulty fuel injectors, injector control circuits, blown head gaskets, vacuum leaks, burned valves, broken valve springs, low compression due to cylinder damage, worn piston rings, damaged or worn camshafts, etc..

I would recommend getting this problem properly diagnosed by a professional. Failure to fix misfire codes promptly can cause severe engine damage and destroy high-dollar parts like oxygen Sensors, catalytic converters, engine blocks and cylinder heads.

2004 trailblazer code po306 and we changed out plugs, coil and still po306


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0306 is defined by SAE J2012 (REV, DEC 2007) as "Cylinder 6 Misfire Detected".

To put it plain and simple, there is a problem with cylinder #6 in your engine that is causing it to misfire.

Misfires can be caused by several things. One of the things that must be understood is that a misfire is simply one or more cylinders that are not producing the power that they should. - especially when compared to other cylinders in the same engine.
The things that can cause this include, but are not limited to:
> Ignition system
> Fuel delivery system
> Fuel injection system
> Cylinder compression (which can be affected by many of the things below)
> blown head gasket
> Burned or bent valves
> Vacuum leaks
> Faulty wiring
> cracked piston or broken piston rings
> Restricted exhaust
> malfunctioning Powertrain/Engine Control Module (PCM or ECM)


To fix the code, you must first diagnose to determine which of these things is causing the misfire, then repair accordingly.

Misfire on cylinder 1 ford taurus 2000


You will have to change the cylinder piston; the ring around the piston is what causing this to misfire. As you can see, every time you remove that one spark plug, to look as liquid is been spill on it. The ring around the piston is damage and the cylinder is not burning the oil and gas as the spark plug send fire into the cylinder. contact your local mechanic for hands on help.

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

I have a 2003 dodge durango 4.7 and it is overheating which i already r&r the thermostat. fixed the problem a lil but not 100%. also check engine light turned on for second time both same code P0308...


yes... overheating can cause issues in your piston/cylinder head. if your cylinder head is made from aluminum and not metal, overheating can cause cracks and bends in your cylinder head. if this cracks occur inside the combustion chamber, then proper compression cannot be attained. you need to rebore then resleeve your combustion chamber and change the pistons to fix this issue. this will also require resurfacing of cylinder head to ensure that it does not create leaks against crankcase.

I have a missed fire on cylinder 1 on my toyota tercel 1998. What can i do to solve my problem. I have change all the plugs in it


First step would be to change the plug wires as well, if you haven't already. If the misfire is still there, there are only 3 possibilities, 2 of which you should hope for. The first step would be to swap the position of the 2 coils. If the misfire moves to cylinder 2 or 3, there's your problem, a bad coil. Easy fix. Not necessarily cheap, but easy. If the misfire is still in the #1 cylinder, however, then you should swap the #1 fuel injector with one from another cylinder. If the misfire moves, then THAT's the problem. Another easy, albeit not necessarily inexpensive fix. (parts for these cars can be a bit pricey). Finally, if the misfire is still there, then chances are it is a result of something mechanical inside the combustion chamber, i.e. a burned valve or piston. A compression test would confirm this. This is the one you don't want.
