sounds like a vacuum leak at the manifold. spray wd40 or simillar around manifold to check for leaks. if you find a leak, engine will flare up.

Try the idle air control valve since it raises the idle when you turn on a load to the engine.

SOURCE: 1998 ford explorer 4 5 6 cyl. misfire

Hi:
A code P0304 - 305 or 306 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wire
Faulty coil (pack)
Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
Faulty fuel injector
Burned exhaust valve
Faulty catalytic converter(s)
Running out of fuel
Poor compression
Defective computer

Possible Solutions:
If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

If there are symptoms such as 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 wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I just replaced my intake gaskets and plenum gaskets,new plugs,cap,rotor,wires,refined the distributor. now I have an engine miss fire at low rpm speeds,what could be happening?


you more than likely have a dirty or bad injector in this situation, you can change your fuel filter and run a can of royal purple maxflow fuel system cleaner to a half a tank of gas if it is not too bad this will probably clear it up, if the low rpm miss is still there you need to bring it into a repair center and have a decarbonization done to the engine this will clean the injectors top end of the motor cataletic convertors and pretty much the intire engine

Why does my 2.5 GMC sonoma truck skips or misses?


Worn timing belt or bad map sensor, weak ignition coil, worn distributor gear (usually starts hard with that) Leaking manifold gaskets all possible causes. Start with a new coil, spray starting fluid around manifold gasket while running, if it revs up in any certain spots, manifold leaking (intake only test), check vacuum lines for cracks and leaks,(MAP) replace sensor. Over 75,000 miles probably timing belt, recommended change interval is 60,000 miles.

Ticking & white smoke after replaced intake gasket


Sounds like coolant getting into the combustion chamber. Potential causes in order of significance: Intake manifold gasket (might not have been done right), Head gasket(s), cracked cylinder head, or, cracked engine block. Check the oil. If it looks like chocolate milk it means the coolant and oil are mixing

engine missing could be caused by faulty spark plugs and wires,bad ignition coils,dirty fuel injectors,leaking egr valve,low cylinder compression,intake vacuum leaks.many things will cause engine to miss, first do minor fix,replace distributor cap and rotor,replace spark plugs and wires,clean fuel injectors,replace fuel filter and air filter,if this minor tune up dont help engine and engine still missing, do a vacuum test and compression test to check condition of engine.engine could be worn out have low compression by worn valves and pistons rings.

I have a 99 Jimmy with 4.3 engine. I have bad missing in the engine. I have replaced all wires, plugs, cap and rotor. This unit is still missing and setting a general misfire code. I have no vacuum leaks...


I found the problem and 99 jimmy is running great now. the major problem was the intake manifold gaskets sucking air and causing random misfire codes(bad fuel/air ratio) but also we pulled the distributor as well because from 87-99 the drive gear was made of soft material and sure enough 3 teeth on the dist gear were almost worn right off. We also replaced this with 120$ new rebuilt unit.
Intake gasket kit is approx 100$ and no more than 2 hrs labour and the distributer is real easy to pull and replace once the intakes are off so this is a good time to check dist with little extra labour.

98 chev 5.7 #3and#6 clys are missing at ilde to about 2500 rpm


I would test for a leaking intake manifold gasket. WITH A WATER SPRAYER , and the engine running at operating temps and at idle, spray some water where the intake meets the cylinder head. If you hear a little SUCKING SOUND, and the engine smooths out temporarily, thats it Hope this helps

It sounds like you may have an intake leaking. You've replaced the major components so now you need to look for a possible vacuum leaking. The intake gaskets is the easiest part to check. Get a can of brake clean. While the engine is running, spray the brake clean on the top center of the engine. The engine may idle up or idle down or may smooth out. Try this and see what you come up with. If this does not solve you problem, let me know and I will help you figure it out.

95 GMC Jimmy 4.3l W vin rough idle


My problem was solved when I repaired my 4 wd activation dash switch. The switch was contacting on 2WD & 4HI at the same time. The front differential activation is vacuum activated possibly creating a tug of war that didn't actually engage it but drained off vacuum from the engine? A theory at best but stumbbled across it because I knew the switch wasn't working properly I repaired it and low and behold rough idle disappeared and all is good for 3 weeks running.
