SOURCE: Intermittent Misfire on cyl #4 1997 Buick Lesabre

How's your coolant level? The intake manifolds on the 3.8L engines are prone to breakage at various locations causing coolant leaks into the crankcase and vacuum leaks on intake ports.Removal of the upper intake manifold will be necessary for inspection. Also, check for vacuum leaks at various locations on the outside of the intake manifold using WD-40 or brakeclean/carburetor cleaner sprayed hoses, non-electrical components, at the base of the manifold etc. As for a faulty injector, not likely but if you suspect one you can always swap the suspect injector with another on the engine and see if the misfire follows the injector. Just be sure to relieve the fuel pressure before servicing. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: short in wire to fuel injector

The coil inside the distributor is breaking down its about a 10 min fix and user friendly.

SOURCE: only 2 injectors are firing

More than likely your injectors are burnt out. You need a digital multimeter to check it out. Unplug the connectors to the injector. Check the resistance it should be around 12 ohms. If the measurement is much higher it is burnt out out. Using a node light, If you don't have a node light you can use a LED with a 1k resistor connected to the anode. Connect that to the injectors wire terminals to see if the computer is providing pulse to it. Caution don't put DC current on injectors by using the battery, you will damaged them. Don't use a regular light bulb to see if the computer is providing pulse, it can damage the computer. The LED light must have a 1k resistor in series with it. This makes it safe to connect to injector terminal.

SOURCE: 2000 excursion misfire on cyl 4. traded plug,

Remove the plug and check the compression for that cylinder it should be between 120 psi and 150 psi, if it is low it is a mechanical issue (bad valve or worn piston rings). If commpression is low remove the valve cover and turn over the motor confirming that both valves for that cylinder are opening to there correct travel or height if not it is a faulty hydraulic lifter or worn cam. Also check the valve lash clearance the clearance is usually .012" for the exhaust valve and .008" for the intake valve to check the lash turn the motor over until the valve shuts completely for each valve, then use a feeler gauge go no go procedure. Has the wire been replaced for the plug? If this motor has coil on plug type disregard plug wire question.

SOURCE: 3.4 GM v6. dead skip on #4 cyl. Spark plug ok,

The very first thing that you should do after finding a cylinder mis-fire that can not be easily explained such as a fouled spark plug, is to take a compression test especially of the mis-firing cylinder to be certain that the mis-fire is not caused by a mechanical problem, and I have seen people spend a lot of time and money trying to hunt down an electrical problem when the actual problem was a mechanical one, and no electronic part will repair a burnt or bent intake or exhaust valve.

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF FAULT CODE 21,24 AND 31


21 - VANOS solenoid activation, intake Output digital pulse width (active low)
DME final stage will set flag
whenever a short to ground, a short

Where should I look to resolve a P0204 error code on a 2004 VW Beetle?


Fuel in the injector harness can result in a short causing this code. The only way for fuel to be there is a leaky injector. Dry off harness and monitor. Even though the injector is new, it may be defective. The next place to look is the wiring harness itself. You will have to find where the wiring for #4 injector goes into the vehicles computer and perform a resistance test from the injector harness to the computer to make sure there is no high resistance/opens. If all checks out fine, the computer may be bad. VW computer failure rates are extremely low. I would concentrate on a wiring issue.

No spark on cyl 3 and 4


What engine ? 2.2 l or 2.4 L. You don't say if any codes are set. no P0303 - P0304 cylinder's 3 & 4 misfire ? or any other ? No the cam sensor wouldn't cause just two cylinders to misfire. The PCM triggers the ICM to turn on an off coil's to build up an collapse the primary voltage inducing the secondary voltage . This engine is equipped with a non-distributor ignition system called the electronic ignition (EI) system. The primary circuit of the EI system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Two separate ignition coils

?€¢
An electronic ignition control module (ICM)

?€¢
A crankshaft position (CKP) sensor

?€¢
Related connecting wires

?€¢
The ignition control (IC) portion of the powertrain control module (PCM)
Important: The camshaft position (CMP) sensor is only used for a misfire detection. It is not part of the ignition system. !

2003 Hyundai Sonata with 4 cyl. PO301 error code. Have replaced spark plugs, wires, coil packs, and mass air flow sensor. Replaced air filter due to heavy gas smell. Car was starting after tapping gas 3...


P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected.

Possible Causes:
- Improper spark plug at cylinder #1
- Insufficient compression at cylinder #1
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- The injector circuit is open or shorted at cylinder #1
- Fuel injector #1 may be faulty
- Intake air leak at cylinder

Possible Solutions:
- Perform Injector Service
- Replaced Spark Plug #1
- Replaced Injector #1
- Replaced Ignition Coil #1

Being you have a heavy gas smell I would look into the injectors. If injector #1 is over producing it can cause a misfire. Test your compression and fuel pressure.
