How do you fix the code po316 on a ford with 4.2 engine after you have done turn up? what is the #1 fix to this problem ?

Posted by on

1 Answer

PO316 Misfire first 1000 revolutions

Your going to have more than that, if you look at scan tool data

A night mare to the novice I would guess

No tune-ups in the last 25 years or more

All you can do is spark plugs & on a very few clean or replace
a distributor cap

Computers have been doing the so called tuning for the last 35
years since 1981 & 1983 for ford & chry

Could be intake gaskets (vacuum leak)
PCV System Leak (Vacuum Leak)
Wrong Spark Plugs or Gap

Have to look at cylinder misfire count-if that even helps
Have to look at all obd codes, in all modules
Have to see if all Emission Monitors ran
Have to look at Fuel Trim to see if it trying to correct for
a rich or lean condition

As with ALL folks that come here, the vehicle is a secret
At least we have a motor

What did you do, other than spark plugs & were they replaced
because of a problem?

What year vehicle

If it is real old & had misfires for along time, then the exhaust
converter will be another issue AFTER you get rid of the,misfires

Wires in correctly

A misfire can be cause by several factors. here are a list of things to check check spark plug on that cylinder and check coil and wiring for coil. check cylinder compression on all cylinders if one cylinder is less than 10 psi different from the others that can cause a miss, last but not least check injector pulse using a noid light for injector pulse if pulse is good then injector is bad replace and that should solve your problem. Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where theMaf Sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a downstream vacuum leak of the MAF sensor. or a leaking intake manifold gasket or loose vacuum hose on the engine.
Possible solutions include:
  • In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner. Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
  • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
  • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure

SOURCE: what is error code po 304 and po316

P0304 is Cylinder 4-misfire detected-probable cause is as follows. Engine mechanical fault, wiring, ignition/fuel system, injector, ECT/MAF sensor, ECM

P0316 Misfire detected during startup-first 1000 revolutions- probable cause is as follows-Engine mechanical fault, wiring, ignition/fuel system, injector

SOURCE: trouble codes

A code P0304 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • Faulty spark plug or wire
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Running out of fuel
  • Poor compression
  • Defective computer
Possible Solutions If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.
Code P0316
i've heard of the 5.4l's with the "cop" set up devolping moisture under a coil. if it hasn't again that is most likely the problem. to prevent this you could remove each coil and apply dielectric grease to the tops of the plugs.

Codes po308/po316


code po308 refers to cylinder 8 misfire detected===causes--engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition/fuel system---injector--ECT/MAF sensors--ECM
code po316 refers to misfire detected on start up --first 1000rpm.===causes engine mechanical fault--wiring--ignition /l system--injector
For this I would be inclined to run a fuel system cleaner first to see f the injectors come good . Check all the wiring connections are clean and tight.

I have a 2007 ford taurus with p0300-p0303, p0306, p0316, p2195 and p2196. engine doesnt start anymore but battery is fine.


The old give me money for nothing statement from a mechanic instead of knowing how to fix it.
code p0300 refers to random/ multiple cylinder/s misfire detected===causes--spark plug/s---HT lead/s---injector/s---ignition coil/s--low compression--wiring
code po303 refers to cylinder 3 misfire detected--- engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition/ fuel system---injector --ECT/MAF sensor --- ECM
code p0306 refers to cylinder 6 misfire detected===causes --engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition / fuel system---injector ---ECT/MAF sensor---ECM
code po316 refers to misfire detected during start up--first 1000 revs==causes--engine mechanical fault---wiring---ignition /fuel system---injector
code po2195 refers to heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 1 bank 1 signal stuck lean===cayses ---HO2S---fuel pressure---injectors---intake leak
it also refers to O2S sensor 1 bank 1 same causes and also refers to HO2S 1 bank 1 implausible signal===causes --- short to positive---short to ground---Ho2S ---ECM
code po2196 refers to the same items as 2195 . some causes are also air intake restricted
Have a compression test done some where else and it will indicate the condition of the motor. The rest is sensors and wiring problems.

2003 FORD ESCAPE CODES NEED TO KNOWN WHAT THEY MEAN PO316 ,PO306


PO316 is misfire on startup
PO302 is misfire on cylinder number 2

To find arc-over, start car at night, and look in the dark at the entire routing of the plug wire. I have seen where there was a faint glow the full length of a plug wire.

At a minimum replace the number 2 plug wire. Make sure it is seated on both ends and clean of corrosion.

Engine light came on it gave me two code po307 and po316 what does this mean. thanks


1. Before any diagnostics, refer to TSB 06-20-10 from Ford for updated power train control module calibration. In most cases, if the engine runs fine, P0316 code is in memory, this reflash will fix concern. If this doesn't fix it you will need a new PCM.

The p0307 is of the same concern and if the reflash doesn't fix it you will need a new PCM.

Trying to find out which coil is mis fireing to the engine.. Change out the spark plug all 6 oof them. Change out the one coil in the front which was the number 6. But still getting PO316 signal for this...


Hello campbella697: My name is Roger and I will help you. THe code for #6 cylinder misfire is P0306. This is cylinder specific. How ever P0316 is a different problem all together. Not knowing the year,make,model and engine size I can give you generic possibilities. The code deals with engine revolutions. The possibilities are (1) a damaged crank position sensor (2)ignition system, (3) fuel injector,(4) running out of fuel (5) fuel quality,(6) base engine mechanical or a damaged power train control module. However this should be checked with a scanner by knowledgeable person or you will spend money you don't need to. Should you need further help I will be glad to assist you. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

2002 Ford Mustang GT I used OBD-II to get the trouble codes, I got P0174,P0301,P302,P316 Freeze Frame Information: 1. DTC for which Freeze Frame was Stored - P0174 2. Fuel System 1 Status - Closed...


Because you got a misfire on cylinder #1 PO301
A misfire on cylinder #2 PO302
Misfires first 1000 rev PO316
O2 Codes PO 174
Etc,Etc


The LTT, is the result of not learning (yet-thus long term)
what isn't working correctly---Your Engine

Replace bad Coil--which ever is missing
Do not go by the codes,alone ,TEST
