Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Cylinder misfiring replaced plugs, wires, cap, rotor. It still feels like a cylinder is misfiring, and there is a slight knocking. It's going through a quart of oil a week.

Hello and welcome to FixYa. check you engine for any noticeable signs of oil excessive in 1 particular area if you don't see any excessive oil stain. Try doing a valve job inspect lifters and push rods make sure they are not warped or clogged replace valve cover gaskets that should take care of most of your issues I would also have timing checked. If knocking continues. replace Rings and check for damaged main rods on the crank shaft in the bottom of the engine which could be knocking around in the oil pan Loosing Oil thru a bad gasket no worries easy fix but burning that much oil is definately a sign of time for engine overhaul or replacement motor. I hope this will help get you going. Please Rate Me. And you can always Ask Me. cylinder misfiring - aymloekh0fg4hpz2e87n86udvs4fowqwshuaaaaasuvork5cyii=

I have a 1998 dodge caravan. it keeps giving me a P0300 and P0305 code. I replaced the cap,rotor, plugs and wires in june 2010. Once again I just replaced the cap and silicone sprayed it. however it's...

Good Evening, I am sure you know the 0300 is a random cylinder misfire and the 0305 is a cylinder 5 misfire. One would not think that you should have to do another tuneup since you did one in june. I would say the parts are under warranty and if you feel that is what is wrong you should be able to replace them. However you could have a vacuum leak, or injector going bad. First I would pull that plug and check compression on that cylinder to start with. Also check out the plug while it is out. And go from there. Cheapest route is of course the re-tune which warrantied parts cost nothing but time. Let me know how it goes.

I have a 1996 crown vic i need to know these touble codes po305 po304

P0304 means that cylinder 4 has a misfire and P0305 is a cylinder 5 misfire. What this means is you may have bad spark plugs, or bad plug wires, or you may need to replace your distributor cap and rotor. I would start with plugs and wires.

What do these trouble codes mean po306 cyclinder misfire detected .how do i fix the problem?

it means you have a misfire on the number 6 cylinder

this could be caused by a whole lot of reasons.

start by inspecting for a bad plug wire if it has them

check for fire on the cylinder with a spark test tool from local part store

if it is a coil-on-plug set-up, check the coil for fire

replace coil/plug wire as needed, replace boot on coil if coil needed, replace spark plugs

Coil 8 misfire

It if is misfiring on one cylinder. The replace the plug wire first. Make sure plug is good.
If two cylinders are misfiring, then you will want to replace the cap, rotor, or coil pack depending on what you have.

If you have someone scan it with a scan tool that gives you data stream they can tell you exactly what cylinder is doing it. You might have a bad coil or wire.
