Yep, did the old belt break? If yes, you may have a bent valve. Run a compression test on the engine to verify. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked compression which check out good and put the computer on. Computer read mis-fire on cylinder 1, and then multiple misfire (like it would jump around). We went ahead and replaced the fuel injector on cylnder 1 - did not solve problem as when we hook the computer up, misfire seemed tp stay at idle and seem better when running high RMP, but check engine light is on as it never went away. Went ahead and replaced the coil pack to cylinder 1 - nothing. what am i missing?

1994 ranger. 2.3 engine. 8plug model. Dead miss in number 2 cylinder. Changed the plugs, wires and coil pack. Still a dead miss. If the person I got the truck from broke the timing belt while the engine...

that engine is a non-interference engine, so it should not have been damaged when the timing belt failed-I'd check the injector and see if it has good compression in the cylinder, and if it is low, squirt oul in the cylinder and test again-if it picks up alot of compression after doing this, you have a bad/broken compression ring, if it does not pick up, it is a valve,

We have changed the crank shaft sensor and the cam shaft sensor and plugs and cadlac convertor and fuel pump and our car still misses real bad every now and then it might straight out for few min you have...

Well, it sounds more like a timing belt issue than a coil pack. When you have gas applied and the engine running a little higher than idle RPM it seems fine because the belt is under tension and holding the timing when you back off the gas the belt gets loose and it runs like it is out of time. If it runs fine at first and starts acting up when it gets warm it could be the coil pack but I would check the timing and see if it is erradict when idling to make sure you don't have a timing belt issue. If that breaks while you are driving you will have to repair the head as well as replace the timing belt.

I dont think that u have a timing probing but just to be sure I would recheck the timing, (remove timing belt cover, set crank to zero and make sure both cams line up with the marks on the engine) if thats all good the u have a prob with that particular cylinder. first thing I would do is swap the coil pack from cyl 3 with another cylinder (like cyl 1) then start the car if the misfire code goes from P0303 (Cyl 3) to P0301 (Cyl 1) then u know u have a bad coil pack. try that and let me know what happens

Engine miss

if you have only one cylinder getting that excessive fuel it indicates that the computer thinks that that cylinder is not sparking and thinks no fuel is the proble. this is due to a timing issue. even though you replace the injector which was most likely not the problem to begin with. in order to get spark the coil has to energize you more than likely have a bad coil pack.replace the coil and your miss will no longer exist.
