SOURCE: Took my car to have check engine light checked. It

In modern cars so much can go wrong to indicate an issue and a computer in the car can get confused as to what is really occurring. In most cars a misfire indicates either an incorrect firing order, shorted wires, bad plugs, or bad coil. Since you have replaced the wires and plugs we can rule those out. Im also assuming after the second engine code you pulled #2 plug and made sure it wasnt fouled with oil, was gapped correctly, and reinserted. To produce a sufficient spark for combustion the alternator sends power to a "Coil" which is in reality a storage point that then sends an amplified electrical current down the spark plug wire to the cylinder to fire the plug. If the car is truly misfiring you will notice a rough idle, fluctuating RPM's, and lack of acceleration. If you are experiencing any of these I would look at replacing the coil. If you arent experiencing any of these I would have the code cleared again and complete one drive cycle 100 miles and then have codes read again. If you still get a Misfire error some other causes known to occur with Rio's are fuel filter issues, gas caps, and fuel injector issues. Although rare, these can cause issues with the cars fuel delivery and emissions which can confuse the sensor in the ECU. I would try injector cleaner, replace the fuel filter, and gas cap . If funds are an issue then based on symptoms I would start with injector cleaner first $3, Filter $12, Gas cap $12, Coil $48 to $200+

What do I look for to correct a random misfire code on cylinder 1 and 4 on a 2006 Kia Soreneto 3.5 L? Have a;ready replaced the coil,plugs and wire?


first go over the plugs and wires again. Make sure plugs are gapped correctly, wire boots have good wire connection in the boot top, and the boot is seated correctly on the plug stem. ensure plug wires are soundly seated/connect at the other end. If you still get the misfire code -- get the engine diagnosed -- a sensor or a computer module may be faulty.

Random multiple misfire P0300, P0302, P0304 on 2006 Kia Rio


A competent mechanic will check all probable causes associated with these DTC codes.
Code P0300: Random-Multiple misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Vacuum leaks, damaged hoses, or improper routing
2. Fuel contamination
3. Ignition system - Ignition module, coil, spark plugs and wires
4. Fuel system
Code P0302: Cylinder 2 misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Control unit software in need of updating
2. Faulty PCM or ECM
3. Faulty fuel injector
4. Ignition system
5. Fuel system
Code 0304: Cylinder 4 misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Control unit software in need of updating
2. Faulty PCM or ECM
3. Faulty fuel injector
4. Ignition system
5. Fuel system

Be sure the invoice enumerates all of these probable causes as having been checked. Also, some of the replacement parts installed earlier may be faulty.

2007 kia rio losing power when going up hills


Random misfires could be gas related- low fuel pressure, vacuum leaks or air leaks upsetting the air/fuel mixture ratio, clogged air filter or fuel filter. Could be ignition related- worn spark plugs, possibly. Or could be an internal mechanical problem-possible valve train malfunction.
Start with a fuel pressure test. check vacuum hoses for leaks, check intake manifold and throttle body assembly for leaks. If you have an exhaust leak at or near the engine, can cause misfires. Air going into the engine is metered by the mass air flow sensor in the big air boot on the throttle body. If extra air gets into the engine through a vacuum leak or a loose hose, the engine computer won't know it, so the air/fuel mixture will be too lean, resulting in misfiring. Several things to check-good luck.

Engine problems


intake valves on the R side of cyl.head.exhaust valves on L side looking at engine from transmission end. need to perform a compression test on each cylinder making sure that the psi doesnt vary by more than a cpl. psi between cylinders.FUEL INJECTOR is very likely.AND injectors make a clicking noise when energized.a click each time injector is pulsed.(thats each time the cylinder is fired=alot of ticking or clicking)the higher the rpm the more rapid the noise.injectors are on the intake side of cylinder head. opposite side from exhaust manifold(the manifold that your tailpipe attaches) unplug injector on no.2 cyl(if thats where your misfire is) while the engine is running, if the engine runs the same without staggering or stalling there is your problem. good luck and happy motoring ___O^-o

I have a 2005 kia sorento v6 3.5L. the check engine light is on as it has been misfiring now for the last couple weeks. after a scan, using a unversal scanner, it revealed a misfire on cylinders 1, 3, and...


Notice that all of the misfiring cylinders are on the same side of the engine. How was it determined that this is an electrical issue? I would expect further codes to turn up as a misfire code is not very informative. Good luck!

Engine misfire


The computer will take time to learn the new pattern. The computer is what actually controls the timing and when the system has been reset, the computer has to relearn. Can take up to 20 starting times.
