Not 100% sure, but if it has fuel injection I would guess that you have clogged injectors in those two cylinders

Misfiring cylinder 3 on axiom 2004, replaced coil and plug, need info. On cleaning injectors.

how do you know that, (you never said)
P0303 DTC errors? that?
303 means.
#3 cylinders combustion energy is weak, to a tech it means the piston velocity was week, slow to accelerate, it was.
that can be.
1: spark bad (for gas/petrol engines)
2: injection bad.
3: this cylinder compression bad.

it is NOT just a spark issue, not at all.
it can even be air leaks (vacuum ) near #3 but that cause.
injection rates to seem wrong when ok. lean.

id be all over compression tests.
after all cant burn fuel with weak compression.
it may burn but 303 will keep going.
then spark, cant burn fuel with bad spark
and last is fueling. (air and fuel mix)
in that order, is how it happens in real world.
but we take short cuts, sure, and new spark plugs are prudent fast and only $2 each.

1998 bmw 540i having a misfire on cylinder 5 changed the plugs and coil packs. It ran fine for a couple days, then it began again, giving me a check engine, and it's idling rough at low rpms.

Is the same cylinder causing the problem? If so take a close look at the spark plug for fuel fouling. The cylinder may be over fueled causing plug fouling. You may also have a bad coil or defective spark plug. Try swapping coil and plug with one from adjacent cylinder to see if misfire changes to that cylinder

No fuel in one cylinder 1998 ford ranger

Either has a bad injector or the wiring to that particular injector has been pinched or skinned and grounded somewhere.

Hi I have a 99 Plymouth breeze 2.4l engine it keeps misfiring. I replaced the spark plugs. Replace the can shaft sender. And Its still doing it I have no idea what could be the problem the check engine

do a leak down test..if all cylinders equal it is not mechanical.... isolate and determine which cylinder is misfiring... then it is simple...air / fuel/ or spark.. needs all three to go boom... that cylinder is not getting spark..or air (or too much-vacuum leak)...or fuel (fuel injector) ..good luck

2005 3.5l some times smokes oil then stops

Smoke oil? For what your thinking that is oil? Smoke coming from the tailpipe is not good news, but does not necessarily mean the engine needs rebuilding. First, you need to determine what color of smoke is coming from the tailpipe
* White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. The white smoke is steam. There are special gaskets (head gaskets are the primary gaskets) that keep the antifreeze from entering the cylinder area.
* Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe.
* Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm.

If you confirm us that is oil smoke, check and keep in mind that the car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

Keep us updated.

P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected.

- 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

- Perform Injector Service
- Replaced Spark Plug #1
- Replaced Injector #1
- Replaced Ignition Coil #1

P0303 - Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected.
Follow info from P0301.

P0316 - Misfire Occurred In The First 1,000 Engine Revolutions.

- Damaged CKP sensor.
- Ignition System.
- Fuel Injectors
- Running out of fuel
- Fuel Quality
- Base engine
- Damaged Powertrain Control Module

Usually the P0316 is combine with a P03XX codes. The P03XX code indicates in which cylinder the misfire occurred.

I have a 4.3 and 5 speed 4x4, the engine will miss under load, new gas tank and sending unit installed, looking at replacing fuel filter, any other ideas?

If you are missing, due to a cylinder failure, the fuel filter, sending unit and all of that affect all of the engine. If you get a "skip" under a load, you have a cylinder issue. You need to determine what cylinder. Try to throttle it up while applying the brake to keep it from moving in drive to see if you can get it to skip.
If it does, look at spark plugs to see if you can see what cylinder looks different.
Or...while someone is "power braking" and it's missing, remove a spark plug wire one at a time to see if the condition changes. If it doesn't change, that is your bad cylinder.
Then you need to determine if it's fuel, or spark that is the problem.
(Injector bad, or plug, or plug wire.)

This morning engine turns over normally but will not fire/ignite - was working ok yesterday

Check the spark plugs and eventually replace them.

Check the air intake and air filter, air intake temperature sensor should be tested by a mechanic, as this can cause cold start problems.

Check if there is fuel pressure, and if fuel is circulating regularly. A tool to measure fuel pressure can be purchased at any part shop for about $30.

If fuel pressure is not regular, then check fuel pump, fuel lines , and fuel filter.

Distribution problems can also cause the car not starting at cold, check distributor rotor or coil pack, check wires to spark plugs. Try to understand if one or more cilinder is misfiring (engine rough) , in that case check distribution.

Electronic injection problems can arise because of a fault on the vacuum system, or a faulty sensor (O2 MAF) in case, do a code reading scan on the car ECU (computer module) using an ODBII code reader.
This will return error codes that can help in addressing fuel injection problem.
Also test and clean injectors.

If the problem is none of the above, check ignition and ac system, if car is not cranking, or if there is no power to sparks at all , it can be a faulty ignition (cylinder, ignition switch coil) or a problem with a locked alarm system.

As first thing replace sparks and check if they are burnt irregularly , or if one spark plug is dirtier then the others, that will mean the car is misfiring. If one spark plug is covered with oil, then one or more cylinder have problems( ring).

Replace air filter.

Replace fuel filter.

Possibly scan computer.

Try to understand if fuel is getting into cylinders and if engine has no spark, or is misfiring.

Check all wiring from ignition , coil and wiring connected to sparks.

What coul be keeping my 1986 honda civic from starting? The plugs all spark, the fuel pump gives gas to the carb, Ive changed all plugs cap and rotor and have tried spraying starter fluid directly into...

It cranks really good sputters a little and makes some loud pops but it will not turn over? FYI:Cranking and turning over are the same thing. When was the last time it ran. The gas could be bad. Did you get new plug wires as well. Try testing the distributor, remove a spark plug, plug it back into the wire, and touch the threads to ground and crank the engine. It should spark. Keep your fingers away, that's high voltage. Remove all spark plugs, spray some starting fluid in each cylinder, then crank the engine with the plugs out. This will clean any debris from the cylinders. Engines need backpressure to run properly, a major exhaust leak hence the popping, could cause it to not run. If you can get it started try to keep it going, full throttle, keep in the starting fluid, it could just need to get warm. I used to have one of them and they don't like it when they're cold.
