How to check coil packs and spark plugs wire with a multimeter. ..having random/ multiple misfire P0300...need to know their spec? 97 Cadillac Deville, 4.6 engine/Northstar


I don't think you really understand what this fault code means, it means that likely all the engine cylinders are misfiring at random no set pattern, not any particular cylinder. I would start with checking for engine vacuum leaks like the intake manifold gasket. that is all I can say since you provided no make, model or year and engine type and size information.

Have a 98 deville northstar engine. When I put on the brake there is a clunking sound. Just had new brakes, rotors put on


make sure calipers are tight to their brackets. seen alot of mechanics leave these 2 bolts loose and the clunk u hear is the caliper smacking back n fourth when you hit brake. check that as well as making sure wheels are tight.

I have been advsed that I have a broken timing belt or "jumped timing chain.Besides the belt/chain, what other components do you recommend replacing(Gasket/seal,cam and crank pulleys,tensioners)?


I am assuming you have the 2.2L 4 cylinder engine. The timing chain tensioner on these engines is nororious for failure resulting in jumped timing. Be advised that depending upon the situation, you may have sustained major engine damage. If the timing simply jumped when turning the engine off, you may be safe, but if it occurred at highway speed, there is a high probability that there is valve damage in the engine that will need repair before you can move on to the timing chain and tensioner. As far as "other components", if your know that the head is ok, then you should replace the timing gears, chain, and tensioner. Also purchase a "timing gasket set" which will give you the gaskets ans seals you need to do the job.

How to set the timing on a1997 4.6 deville


There isn't any set timing procedure on the northstar engine, the engine control module uses information from various sensors and adjusts the timing for the present conditions. There are 3 spark curves in the module to adjust timing for the grade of fuel being used.

When does the timing belt need to be changed on a 2001 Cadillac Deville with a Northstar engine?


The northstar engine uses chain driven cams that eliminates the need to replace timing belts.

Overheating,eveything looks ok.


I have a 97 Cadillac Deville with a northstar engine and have replaced it twice so far, so i answer this by experience...i've noticed to my two prior engines that went bad that the normal temp should NOT EXCEED 228 (normal), the red overheating light will come on at 250 and at 260 it will beep and tell you to stop engine - idle engine and will begin to smoke (overheat).

I hope this helps you and anyone else...by the way if your asking why did i replace my engine twice is simply because my cadillac is super clean inside and out, immaculate condition.

SETTING TIMING ON 2000 NORTHSTAR ENGINE


Setting the camshaft timing isnecessary whenever the camshaft drive system has been disturbed,meaning the relationship between any chain and sprocket has been lost.Correct timing exists when the crankshaft and intermediate shaftsprocket timing marks are in alignment and all 4 camshaft drive pinsare perpendicular (90 degrees) to the cylinder head surface.

degrees) to the cylinder head surface. 0900c152800a57af.jpg I hope this helps, if not let me know

94 toyota 4x4 5 speed 4 cyl 22re engine


Get the timing checked. If it is off over 5-8 degrees, you may have a timing chain that has jumped a tooth. This is a common issue with the 22 RE with high mileage. Let me ask you this, and this may narrow down my solution...Is there a slight "rapping noise" in the front of the engine? If so, the timing chain guids may be worn or broken. Get the timing checked, and advise me of the findings.
