Replace the coil pack once more. I went through 2 new ones on my f150 on one cylinder. One worked, the other didn't (both new off the shelf). Condensation build up in the boot caused mine to misfire. Anytime you replace a coil pack, squirt a little silicone grease inside. This will prevent condensation from hitting your plug. Fords are notorius for this problem, especially if you live in a humid area. Also, make sure and clear the codes after you make the repair.

got more then a common issue--u need to search for any bullitins on ur model--may just need a tuneup-change plug wires-test coil and ignition module--dont just replace parts with the code problems-get a data stream done-it gives the solution--secure a repair manual

SOURCE: Just had remanufactured engine installed

Hey Doug. I would change the cam sensor and see it that takes your light on. The misfire may errase with a new cam sensor. I would hold off on the crank, until I changed the cam sensor. If it still runs rough, then maybe try the crank sensor. It is possible they didn't gap the #8 plug right or it was a bad plug. I would try the cam Doug. I would hold off on the crank.

2009 PontG64cyl misfiring on 3rd cylinder Codes p0300, p0303, and p0353.(its chugging at this point) My question is do I just go ahead and change the coil pack or do I start somewhere else? Thanks!

Before replacing the coil , to make sure that's what's wrong ,switch it to another cylinder to see if the problem moves to that cylinder ! This DTC is for a circuit control problem , DTC P0353: Ignition Coil 3 Control Circuit
I have seen lose wire connections cause misfires , there is a four wire connector at the coil marked A,B,C,D . C is L-BU that is the control wire from the PCM - engine computer . So basically it's saying there is a problem with that circuit !
The ignition system uses individual ignition coil/module assemblies for each cylinder. The engine control module (ECM) controls the individual coils by transmitting timing pulses on the ignition control (IC) circuit of each ignition coil/module to enable a spark event. The ECM monitors each IC circuit for improper voltage levels. Each ignition coil/module has the following circuits:
Ignition voltage



Low reference

But change the coil to a different cylinder an see if the problem moves to that cylinder !

Replaced 1.8 liter engine in a 2006 Civic after it overheated bad. Had to replace two ignition coils and it will idle smooth until it gets warm then starts missing.Loses power and check engine light starts...

misfires are from coils , plugs , HT leads , and injectors and fuel pressure . If the head got that hot then it is possible that the injectors have an internal problem that shows when they get hot and the electronics breaks down.

Look at fuel trim on a professional scanner

You still have the same codes for the same cylinder
misfires,IF the codes are correct

The misfires could come from valve issues,the valves themselves
or the variable cam actuators if that applies,or from fuel issues,but
not as likely on all three cyl on same bank

You need to do a cylinder leak down test on all cylinders--to eliminate mechanical issues

Then a cylinder contribution test electrically with scope software

Then scope the timing events,the cam advance events,the crank
position, all layered on the same screen & see if they line
up where they belong.

If the cams are not the issue, then your left with a serious vacuum
leak in the intake on one bank.

What I'm saying, is you have one bank with misfires apparently
not now from the ignition since the coils were replaced

Error code P0353

It might be getting spark but that spark might be out of the allowed timing signal that triggers it. You can not tell without a scope.

The code P0353 is for cylinder #3. (3rd one back from the front of the engine) on the passenger side. Follow this plug wire to the correct coil pack.

I have three code p0351 p0352 p0353 i will like to know what is the problem

This must be a "one coil per plug" setup.PO351,352,353 are codes for coil A,B,C in that order.(I'm guessing cylinders 1,2,3?)Clear the codes,mark the suspect coils,and swap them to different cylinders,and see if new codes(different numbers) come up.

Po 353 code

P0353 CHEVROLET Description The ignition system on the vehicle uses individual ignition coils for each cylinder. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls each ignition coil operation. The PCM sends a ON/OFF signal to energize the ignition coil to create a spark at the spark plug when a spark is required at the cylinder.

Possible Causes - Ignition Coil harness is open or shorted
- Ignition Coil circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Ignition Coil 3
- Faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
