Question about Chevrolet 1500

1 Answer

Misfiring on 2 & 7

2001 Silverado. Problems started with codes results showing, misfiring on #2 & #7. Since them, I have: Replaced the intake gasket and torque. New plugs, wires, coils on 2 & 7, PVC, Fuel reg, TPS, fuel injector on 7, Fuel filter, Compression test is 180 - 155, Fuel pressure is 52, very poor fuel economy, idles @ 600 while in park. When we disconnect the connector to the TPS, and re-plug it, the idle goes to 1,100 while in park and sounds great. Later on it returns to its previous condition. Thanks for any help.

    Rechecked the codes and there were. P0101,P0102,P0370,P0122. Erased all of them and ran the truck for a bit. The only code at the moment is P0307.

    Yes, but not ready to say I need a valve job. Vacuum tested at 25 psi. Replaced the uptream o2 sensors on both banks. This engine isn't sounding like a serious internal issue. Next up is a check of the Throttle body motor and a smoke test.

Hate to say it but I would look at the valves on those cylinders. I would venture they are not sealing properly.

Good luck.

SOURCE: 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.

Sound like an air / vacuum leak to me.
Re-check for an air leak on #2 cylinder inlet manifold.
Use a propane torch (unlit, of course) to flood propane gas around inlet manifold/head flange & gasket area.
If there is any change in idle speed during this test you have a vacuum leak.

Most likely I a would suspect the fuel rail had moisture in it. If you checked emissions it would most likely show no HC and alot of 02 and no CO. If it does show alot of HC then I would suspect sticking valves intermittantly . The pinging really points to no fuel issue tho. If you pull the injector connector off and no change then I would remove the fuel rail and inspect. Also make sure the wires are in the correct locations. It easy to get them wrong.

It has a 3800 cu engine and the upper intake blew up.I have replaced several parts it does not idle like it should.

1. What code (P xxxx) was displayed before you replaced the 02 sensor and which one did you replace.

2. What code or codes (Pxxxx) are displaying now.

3. What are the LT and ST fuel trim readings showing at idle now on your scan tool for each of bank one and bank 2

Sounds like you have a serious vacum leak.; DTC 0174 and 0174 are lean conditions on bank 1 and bank 2, 0300 is random misfire. The only thing I can think of is a big vacum leak like the brake booster / vac line leaking, or maybe the intake manifold is cracked ... even a stuck-open EGR doesn't normally lean a motor that much. Start by checking for a vacum leak, if the motor will idle you can spray a little WD-40 around ports and lines >> if the idle speeds up or becomes smooth you on the right track in the area you judt sprayed.

1999 Toyota Sienna is randomly misfiring but no code is showing

IN all causes for codes there is a constant ECM result While you have no codes, non of the codes record a direct ECM problem as such as the ECM will not record it's own fault. It has no sensors that record a fault in itself. I would be inclined to find a serviceable control unit and see if there is an improvement in your problems or see if your unit can be checked out for internal faults.

The wrong part would be the first thing I would get rid of. If the part was not damaged by the grinding, there are operating ranges for the feedback of these O2 sensors which affect the settings of the Engine Management Systems. The wrong part would have to have an identical range as the correct part to work right.

The Misfiring probably has another cause. You have 2 misfiring cylinders. Make sure the wires on #2 and #3 are not crossed at the coil-pak. Then check your Intake Manifold for loose bolts. If no luck, take the good plugs on 1 and 4 and swap them with 2 and 3. Clear your engine Codes and see if the bad cylinders stay the same or follow the plugs. If cylinder 2 and 3 still misfire, its not the plugs. Test the Injectors. Switch Injectors as you earlier switched plugs, clear the Codes and see if the misfiring follows the Injectors.

If the misfires follow the Injectors, you have found the problem. Two bad Injectors. If cylinders 2 and 3 still misfire you need to check the wiring or coil-pak. Cylinders 2 and 3 each have working sparkplugs and working Injectors from the earlier swap and it is not helping.

Before blaming a head gasket, test the Injector wiring and follow the wiring to the connector for a corrosion check on the pins. If no success do a compression check on #2 and # 3 as they are adjacent to verify a blown headgasket.

I hope you find my solution very helpful. I have provided info letting you work with the parts you have. If you want to install new plugs or do a compression test first and have the tools go ahead. You will save testing time, then follow my swap methods for further results if you have good compression.

I have a 2003 ford focus , I am having a misfiring problem. I have replaced spark plugs, wire, coil pack, air filter, fuel pressure sensor, replaced injectors 3 and 4 in which that the misfiring code....

Check for Intake Manifold leaks with either a water mist from a spray bottle or Choke cleaner. Do this while the engine is running and you will know about a leak with an RPM change. I read about some intakes were 2 piece and the intermediate gasket leaks.

Also you could clean the MAF on the air intake with Electric cleaner. If you have an old fashion Vacuum gauge you could plug in and see how steady Valves are closing by watching the Vacuum bounce from misfires.

Would like to know results on this case.

Sputting & misfiring , intake gasket replaced

Did you checked for possible oil deposited in the coils chamber? Did you get the codes? Go to an auto part where they have the code reader,get the codes and work on them accordingly. You will get some directions as to where to look for the problems.
