That is a miss fire on the #2 cylinder. has it been a long time sense a tune up was done ? missfires can be caused by many things but main one is bad plug wirs bad plugs , bad coils. so if it has been a long time give it a tune up , which is vital to the car running good , performance , fuel econ ect.

What does po302 mean on a 1999 plymouth neon

Check Cylinder pressure. PO302 is a cylinder misfire code. you have 4 cylinders in your car. You need to find out whats causing the misfire, could be something simple as changing sparkplugs... could be something a bit more advanced like changing rocker/lifter arm.. It's not something that you would want to drive around with for a while, it could mess more up than it would cost to fix right now.

What does that mean and why does the service engine light stays on

The service engine light is on because the computer has seen a problem with the operation of the engine systems, what happens is the computer is always monitoring all systems and when theres a problem the computer stores a code explaining what system has failed, for example only there may be a code po302 cylinder 2 misfiring. this would tell you that the number 2 cylinder is misfiring, with a little testing you would then check it out to see why this is happening.the first thing you need to do is have the codes read, there are many auto part stores that will scan the computer and give you a print out of the codes, if you write back and list the codes i would be able to help you further, good day.

I have a 2000 chrysler concorde that the engine light just popped on - the error codes are po302, po420, po340

P0302-cylinder #2 misfire detected
P0420- catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
P0340-No cam signal at PCM.
The Cam sensor most likely needs to be replaced first. Clear the codes after that and drive and see what comes back on.

1999windstar missing prob

check the pcv valve vacum lines for a leak a vacum leak will set 171 174 codes. lift the hood with engine running and listen for a air leak , check all vacum lines if no vacum leaks can be found then clean the mass air flow sensor by spraying carb cleaner directly on it for about 5 seconds. in other words take the air filter cover up and spray down the tube that leads to engine. shine a light down hose first and see if u can see the mass air flow sensor so u can get a direct hit
