95 toyota t100 3.4L extended cab check engine light

Check engine light has come on.Running ruff with sluggish power during excelleration including at take off. Auto store did a diagnostic test and informed me that cylinder #6 is misfiring. Unhooked the battery, changed the spark plugs. Ran good for a while until the motor started misfiring again and the engine light came back on. while driving at times, the light will begin to blink and then come on steady. Help. What can one do while on a low budget and fixed income?

SOURCE: Check engine light

A multi misfire may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wires, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty oxygen sensor(s), Faulty fuel injector(s), Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages, Faulty camshaft position sensor, Defective computer.

The engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wire, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the the problems were faulty fuel injectors. 

Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

Good luck and hope this information helps, keep me posted, be glad to help you get the truck running 100% again. Not sure if your running a K&N air filter, and if you are there may be a flim of oil on the MAF sensor that is making you run lean. You may want to spray down the MAF sensor with a can of MAF cleaner.

Most front wheel drive V6 chrysler engines are as follows: standing on passenger side of car facing engine, cylinders 1-3-5 are on the left bank, cylinders 2-4-6 on the right. Standing at the hood facing engine (front of car) #2 is on your left front corner of engine. Change / check plugs and wires before doing and deep sensor testing.

1990 thunderbird sc can be driving fine starts running ruff te check engine light comes on can stay that way for a while barley running then run great all of a sudden light goes off runs good? ...


You need to get the car to a place that has diagnostic equipment so the problem can be pinpointed or you will be throwing a lot of money on peoples guesses. There are too many things that can cause this to try and give you an excact answer. The problem probably lies in the fuel control system and it is getting bad readings from a sensor, but which one I can't tell. The check engine light means it is storing a code that Auto zone can pull for you if you don't want to take it to a shop, but they can misread codes sometimes!

Going down the road car starts to skip running ruff then shut off had to be tow after couple hours car starts now running fine


If your check engine light is on take the car to an auto parts store like Advance or Auto Zone they can hook up a diagnostic reader for free and tell you what kind of trouble codes are stored in the car's computer. Sounds like you may have a vacuum leak or need to replace your mass air flow sensor.

My mazda b3000 has check engine light on and is running sluggishly. autozone's reader returned cyl 1 misfire. what do you think?


Cylinder misfires can be cleared most often by a simple tune-up that includes changing the spark plugs and wires (if applicable). If It has "coil packs" on the plugs that would be the next thing to look at. also the fuel injectors may be dirty.

How do you reset the service engine light?


Locate the diagnostic connector. On the 1997 Nissan Maxima the connector is located in the OBD2 standardized location under the driver-side dash, slightly to the right of the steering column. With the ignition key in the "OFF" position, plug the connector of the scan tool into the diagnostic connector of the car. Turn the ignition key to the run position but do not start the engine unless instructed to by the scan tool.

Turn the scan tool on and select "Global OBD2" from the main menu. Select "Diagnostic Trouble Codes" from the first sub-menu, and then "Read Trouble Codes" from the second sub-menu. Write down all listed codes and their descriptions before erasing them. This will save time if you must perform additional diagnostics.

Press the back button on the scan tool until the second sub-menu is displayed, and select "Erase Codes" or "Clear Codes," depending on the manufacturer of the scan tool. A message will appear asking you to confirm your desire to erase the codes and other stored data. Select "Yes". The scan tool will alert you when the codes have been erased.

Test drive the vehicle to verify the repair is complete. The 1997 Nissan Maxima on-board computer will run a series of tests on the systems in the vehicle, including emission control devices. To complete these tests you must take two test drives that include a variety of driving conditions, with a 2-minute cool-down between each test drive. If the service engine soon light does not come back on during these two test drives, you have completed the repairs and the reset.
