Cylinder 2 misfire

So my second cylinder misfires.its a Mitsubishi lancer es 2002. the thing is i took it to a mechanic and he took a look and said the spark plugs were cheap and i needed the expensive ones. so he replaced those and checked my fuel injectors, compression, distributors and their caps as well as the coil packs and said they were all good. by the way replacing the spark plugs only fixed the problem temporarily. there is something causing the plug to misfire, and its only and always the second cylinder.

One often overlooked item is the spark plug leads themselves! They don't last forever - Some start breaking down internally after only a couple of years, and although you still get a spark at the plug, it is not a very healthy spark.

If they haven't been changed, it is well worth giving it a go.

Hope this helps!

It sounds like a bad coil pack, switch it around and see if the misfire goes to a next cylinder.

GDI. Why is there misfire and idle fluctuation?


code p 0300 determines misfire causes as the following=== causes --engine mechanical fault ---wiring---ignition/ fuel system---injector ---ECT/MAF sensor--- ECM
You have two areas to check
one is the MAF sensor as it will cause erratic idling and second the injector or HT leads to a plug
If you run the fault codes you will get a p 0301or 2 or3 or 4 code and that is the cylinder number that is misfiring--code p 0300 is random /multiple misfires and the causes are the same including low fuel pressure and low compression

What it means


It's cylinder #2 misfire. Change your spark plugs and ignition wires. If you find oil in the spark plug tubes replace value cover gasket

Losing power and over heating


It is obvious if it overheats that 2 things take place
First you stop using it immediately & second have
the overheating issue diagnosed & fixed
Then the power issue may be gone
If you only drive a car for years until things happen ,
your asking for problems & a short lived life for the car
Maybe the timing belt has been neglected & jumped a couple
teeth
The car may have not had a happy life & ran with cylinder misfires or a rich fuel condition & ruined the exhaust converter
& it is blocked

WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF THE PO301 CODE?


The error code p0301 ,This code is related to misfire.The cylinder is misfiring. p0301 this is the indication of cylinder number 1 ,that is misfiring.If the code comes up as p0300 this is the indication of random misfire from all the cylinders.But in your case its indicating p0301 this is indication of cylinder 1 misfire.Check cylinder 1 and replace the faulty cylinder 1 to clear the fault.The spark plugs and the wires connecting to spark plugs also needs to be checked. Keep updated with any more query.Thanks.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer ES Engine code P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire the plugs and wires are new....any other possible solutions?


Two things to check: Had the same type of issue on my Mustang.

1. The coil might be bad.
2. Is the plug getting wet? If it is you need to track down the source and repare that.

My bet is on #1 though.

Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally 2003 hesitates while driving


before anything i had the problem and this is the way i solved it ... the lancer has 2 ignition coils in 2 cylinders what you do is take the iginition coil out of the cylinder that is misfiring and change it to another cylinder and put the car on the odb reader again it should change location of misfire .. then that would tell you that its the ignition coil thats bad i ended up getting my coil at the dealer for $110 ebay has some aftermarket pairs for $100 so you can get 2 now for the price i paid for 1 that will solve the problem guaranteed owne d a lancer for 5 years know the ups and downs to them
