    I'll get that done asap(this afternoon), I do leak gas when I fill up, unless trickle in. But it never ran this bad. Also its a 1997 5.7 triton v8 not 2003 but the site wouldnt let me put that in. I'm good mechanic (although old school) not to up on all the computer stuff. Are the plugs underneath the the black plastic caps that are screwed down next to the injectors? I,ll get back with info you requested soon.

    Thank you so much,

    totaly frustrated

If engine light is flashing, don't run it much. Check plugs, plug wires, etc... first. Need to use a scan tool to get trouble codes and start from there. An injector could also cause the problem. The ECM may see a problem there and set a code. You can check the injectors electrically with an ohmmeter to see if the injector coil is good.

2002 Buick Century Limited 3.1L rough idle and P305 code shows up


You have an interference motor. If you had to replace the heads due to the valves possibly touching the motor, you have to consider rechecking the compression after you replaced the heads. I had the same motor that had an intake leak. I found frozen rings on the number 1 piston as well as a bent pushrod. Ultimately, the camshaft had broken due to coolant getting to the bearings. If the spark is good, the fuel is good, then the only other problem you'd have would be compression.

I have a 2003 Expedition 5.4L Triton. Two days ago, with low gas (38 miles to empty), engine started running rough. Code read P0302, misfire cyl. 2. Since it had 113K miles, I figured its time to change...


Most likely the coils. Easiest way to check is swap them with another cylinder, start it, pull the plug wire connecter and if it doesn't change the engine the coil is bad. If it is the injector, then you can check it with an ohm meter. Touch the leads in the injector it should read 11 to 15 ohms. if you need help let me know.

Check wiring harness to fuel injectors where it runs through intake manifold - these chafe through and cause injectors to stay on or off. Also check engine grounds. 2 at back of head near firewall and one at drivers side engine mount (almost impossible to see)

DO A LITTLE TUNE UP.CHANGE SPARK PLUGS.CHANGE FUEL FILTER.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS.FILL FUEL TANK UP.AND ADD A BOTTLE OF FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER IN FUEL TANK.WHEN YOU DRIVE CAR AROUND.THE INJECTOR CLEANER WILL CLEAN OUT FUEL INJECTORS.IF CAR STILL RUN ROUGH IN DRIVE.YOU COULD HAVE INTAKE LEAK.

Car runs rough


check the compression of each cylinder, they should be no more than 5% difference between cylinders, so if the highest is 160 PSI then the lowest should not be lower than 150 PSI. also test the fuel injectors for proper flow, check for intake manifold vacuum leaks as well.

You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.
