2006 Ford Explorer P0306 code. I had all spark plugs replaced wires, water pump and radiator. small mis fire not that bad, check engine light on. what else could it be?


Run a compression test on it starting with #6 cylinder and those adjacent to it. You may have a leak in the head gasket due to the overheat.

Your first mistake is thinking that the only thing that can cause a misfire is a coil or spark plug. Misfires can be caused by MANY things, including faulty fuel injectors, injector control circuits, blown head gaskets, vacuum leaks, burned valves, broken valve springs, low compression due to cylinder damage, worn piston rings, damaged or worn camshafts, etc..

I would recommend getting this problem properly diagnosed by a professional. Failure to fix misfire codes promptly can cause severe engine damage and destroy high-dollar parts like oxygen Sensors, catalytic converters, engine blocks and cylinder heads.

Sometimes you can use digital multimeter to check for ignition mis-fire.
With engine idling, touch spark plug wires, where applicable, one at a time and note the reading. You don't take the spark plug wire loose and you don't penetrate the insulation, just touch it. Some of the readings I've seen around .6 or .7 volts, not even a full volt. If you find one or two that are bouncing off zero, then you backtrack those. It's an inductive reading or whatever you want to call it.
Hopefully the misfire code will tell you which cylinder, then you check fuel--spark--compression on that cylinder. If p0300 mis-fire code, multiple cylinder misfires and the system can't determine which cylinder.
You might have a vacuum leak?
The basic for a rough idle, you check for a leak of some kind, fuel--egr--vacuum.

Check Engine Light on Yr2001 Ford Escape V-6 2wd. Code says: Misfire on cylinder #5. Dealer said compression is low in cylinder #5. This Escape needs to pass smog. What can we do?


If the engine has a P0305 DTC (Data Trouble Code) for a "cylinder 5 mis-fire detected", then the first thing to do is to do a compression test to determine if the mis-fire is actually being caused by a mechanical problem, or an electronic problem.

If the engine really does have low compression on the #5 cylinder then that is caused by a mechanical mis-fire and nothing electronic will repair it, and the most common causes for a mechanical mis-fire would be a burnt or bent intake or exhaust valve, a warped cylinder head or damaged head gasket, or a damaged piston. You can call around and find a repair shop that will do a "compression leak down test" if you want to know exactly what is causing the compression leak without any dis-assembly to the engine.

White smoke is not good. If it was coming from the exhaust that is a symptom of a head gasket leak. Engine overheating is the most common cause of head gasket failure so if it has overheated recently, a head gasket is more likely. Verify adequate coolant level and normal water temperature until it can be checked by a mechanic.

no, the beeping sound has nothing to do with it, thats just telling you your key is in the ignition. this happened to me and turned out to be a blown head gasket. get a complete head set for about $200 and be sure to change ALL of the seals and gaskets, or else you will just blow your head gasket again.
