Happens a lot. Always use the best high octane you can find. Check wire connections to knock sensor (most common cause for 'restricted performance light, sometimes outside temperature plays a part). Then disconnect negative terminal from battery, wait 2 minutes, reconnect. Then take car for a drive in various conditions, like city traffic, highway driving, and more. After several restarts, mine went away. Occasionally comes back, then disapiars. Ignore orange engine light.

01 Audi A6 p0351 p0352 and p0353


Look at fuel trim on a professional scanner

You still have the same codes for the same cylinder
misfires,IF the codes are correct

The misfires could come from valve issues,the valves themselves
or the variable cam actuators if that applies,or from fuel issues,but
not as likely on all three cyl on same bank

You need to do a cylinder leak down test on all cylinders--to eliminate mechanical issues

Then a cylinder contribution test electrically with scope software

Then scope the timing events,the cam advance events,the crank
position, all layered on the same screen & see if they line
up where they belong.

If the cams are not the issue, then your left with a serious vacuum
leak in the intake on one bank.

What I'm saying, is you have one bank with misfires apparently
not now from the ignition since the coils were replaced

The code P0353 is for cylinder #3. (3rd one back from the front of the engine) on the passenger side. Follow this plug wire to the correct coil pack.

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee and it giving me four code p1391 p0351 p0352 p0353 i will like to know the problem please


For some reason you question has been duplicated several times, so I will answer this one.
Code 1391 may be a problem with the ABS system, the other three codes are concerning the first 3 coils. Your engine has direct spark so each cylinder has its own coil.
I would clear the codes and see which ones come back after a test drive. If the three coil codes come back the coils would need to be tested.

Ford truck error code p0353


P0353 - Ignition Coil C Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction
The COP (coil on plug) ignition system is what is used on most modern engines. There is an individual coil for each cylinder that is controlled by the PCM (powertrain control module). It eliminates the need for spark plug wires by putting the coil right above the sparkplug. Two wires are dedicated to each coil. One is a battery feed usually from the power distribution center. The other wire is the coil driver circuit from the PCM. The PCM grounds/ungrounds this circuit to activate or deactivate the coil. The coil driver circuit is monitored by the PCM for faults

If an open or a short is detected in the driver circuit for coil number 3, a P0353 may set. Also, depending on the vehicle, the PCM may also shut down the fuel injector to the cylinder also.

Symptoms of a P0353 DTC may include:
MIL (Malfunction indicator lamp) illumination
Engine misfire may be present or intermittent

Potential causes of a P0353 code include:
Short to voltage or ground on COP driver circuit
Open on COP driver circuit
Loose connection at coil or broken connector locks
Bad Coil (COP)
Faulty Powertrain Control Module

Possible Solutions:
Is the engine misfiring presently? If not, the problem is likely intermittent. Try wiggle testing the wiring at the #3 coil and along the wiring harness to the PCM. If manipulating the wiring causes the misfire to surface, repair the wiring problem. Check for poor connection at the coil connector. Verify the harness isn't misrouted or chafing on anything. Repair as necessary

If the engine is misfiring presently, stop the engine and disconnect the #3 coil wiring connector. Then start the engine and check for a driver signal to the #3 coil. Using a scope will give you a visual pattern to observe, but since most people don't have access to one there's an easier way. Use a Voltmeter in AC Hertz scale and see if there's a Hz reading of between 5 and 20 or so that indicates the driver is working. If there is a Hertz signal, then replace the #3 ignition coil. It's likely bad. If you don't detect any frequency signal from the PCM on the ignition coil driver circuit indicating the PCM is grounding/ungrounding the circuit (or there is no visible pattern on the scope if you have one) then leave the coil disconnected and check for DC voltage on the driver circuit at the ignition coil connector. If there is any significant voltage on that wire then there is a short to voltage somewhere. Find the short and repair it.

If there is no voltage on the driver circuit, then turn the ignition off. Disconnect the PCM connector and check the continuity of the driver between the PCM and the coil. If there is no continuity repair the open or short to ground in the circuit. If continuity is present, then check for resistance between ground and the ignition coil connector. There should be infinite resistance. If there isn't, repair the short to ground in the coil driver circuit

NOTE: If the ignition coil driver signal wire is not open or shorted to voltage or ground and there is no trigger signal to the coil then suspect a faulty PCM coil driver. Also keep in mind that if the PCM driver is at fault, there may be a wiring problem that caused the PCM failure. It's a good idea to do the above check after PCM replacement to verify there won't be a repeat failure. If you find that the engine isn't misfiring, the coil is being triggered properly but P0353 is continually being reset, there is the possibility that the PCM coil monitoring system may be faulty.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Jaguar s-type restricted performance


I had the same problem. Restricted performance and running rough at 3000 RPM. I have an OBDII code reader and found that the problem was in the air mass flow sensor, which is just after the air filter. I pulled this out and found it was dirty and had butterfly wings in it. The last shop where I had the oil changed replaced the filter for me but put in the wrong size. Close but no cigar. Bought some *** Flow Sensor cleaner at auto store and fixed the problem. Get an OBDII reader with the ability to erase the codes. Comes in real handy.

Check engine light is on,display says restricted performance


Anything can cause the check engine light to go on from a loose gas cap, to a transmission issue. When the onboard computer detects an issue, it will restrict performance so as to not damage the engine any further. An Oil change won't affect this light. The only way to determine the cause of the light is to have the computer scanned with an OBD-II tool (Autozone does this for free) to determine the codes and cause for the light. You can also clear the light with the OBD-II tool, but if the problem is still there, the light will just come back on
