If you get
error codes and
you have an engine that misfires or runs rough, it can be the injector for that
cylinder or the coil pack. The P0300 code is a random misfire code and may or
may not be the above. All the other messages are for misfire of a particular
cylinder indicated by the last digit.
Test the coil pack by switching it to another spark plug and
see if the problem follows to that cylinder.
If that makes no difference, it is very likely the injector.
Disconnect the injector connector of the same cylinder and measure the
resistance. It should be 13.5 to 14.2 ohms at 70 degrees temp. It can be up to
16 ohms if the engine is hot. If you see a really high resistance or an open or
short then you can try to change the injector. If not, you can remove the fuel
rail on that side and switch the injector to another cylinder and see if the
problem follows to that cylinder.
need a 22mm wrench to remove the fuel pressure regulator. The other connections
are std. When all screws are removed, GENTLY wiggle the rail up and guide it
