Replace EGR valve removed and replaced one new coil cylinder #1.Spark apuges and air filter & coil boots. oil change and replace all tune up parts. one new thermostat, gasket, 2gallon antifreeze, flush system. replaced cable asy-BA wire. replaced 2 upper control arms. 2 new lower ball joins. remove and replace flex plate oil change and lube. removed and replaced AC compressor. removed and replaced Idler Arm. New replace starter. My car is still not running right. the RPM is out of control staying over 3 RPM even when I am driving slow. My engine acts like it is slipping and trying to catch up running with the truck. It sounds like water is running in the engine.

Not sure what you still have for codes after the flurry of parts you have thrown at this thing. If the egr problem is not fixed it will be the DPFE sensor or the hoses going to it. It is located by the egr tube and a is a same rectangular box with two hose attached from the tube. One is larger than the other and if you get the hoses backward you will still get the 401 code. The 316 is a random miss which leads me to believe to have a large vacuum leak which will explain the high idle condition. The iac can't slow the engine down if air is getting in after it. Basically all the iac does is gives the engine a controlled vacuum leak. Run the engine and listen for a hissing noise. If you don't have a tester to monitor pid data use choke cleaner and spray around possible leak areas looking for a change in idle. The idle changes you have found your leak. The vacuum elbow on the throttle body collapses on those allowing in metered air. Hope this helps, Mike.

Random misfire with code PO300 07 Nissan titan. Put new spark plugs in and a fuel pump still hase vary bad miss

P0300 is random misfire code P0301 would be cyl # 1 etc.
With the odb2 scanner at erase codes turn the engine off. With the key in the run position erase the codes. Run the diagnostics again. If you still have P0300 code Check the plug wires. Loss of compression will cause misfire but it would not be random.

Using my OBD II on 2000 honda prelude trouble codes PO401 & (PO401 pd) all reads MIL on, monitors, 1 INC, EVAP, 7 ready, MISFIRE, FUEL, COMP, CATLYST, 02 sensor, 02 HTR, EGR. Will be cleaning out EGR, BUT...

I would start with whatever is causing the misfire. That seems to be the core of your emissions codes. Putting all codes together it seems to be clogged injectors vacuum leak. Seems to be causing stalling too.

I have no idea about cars so my maxima 01 service light on i scaned it n say 2 codes come on loke p1401 mil on, monitrs, 1 inc, EGR, 7 ready, misfire, fuel, comp, catlyst, Evap, 2 snsr, 2HTV WHAT DOES THIS...

Only 1 code (p1401) means EGR Temperature Sensor problem. Bad Sensor or EGR valve may need to be replaced. Autozone has some ways to test your sensor and egr valve.
If you do have a bad sensor it is about $170 average. If you have a bad EGR valve it is about $150 average.
Hope this helps!!! Let me know if it does!

Have misfire, code P0316, any ideals? 86,000 miles on

2004 Marauder and 2003-2004 Mustang vehicles built before 12/19/2004 equipped with 4.6L 4V/5.4 4V engine may exhibit a runs rough, lacks power, and engine misfire, prompted by a MIL light and DTC codes P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306, P0307, P0308, and P0316.
Diagnose engine for engine misfire concern. If diagnostics determine an engine misfire which is characterized by leakage through exhaust valve(s), only replace the affected cylinder head(s).
1. Perform relative compression check on all cylinders. If abnormal, check cylinder leakage and actual compression for "low" cylinders refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 303-00.
2. If leakage/compression check indicates a valve train concern, per valve train diagnostics in WSM, Section 303-00, replace cylinder head and cam assembly, pipe plugs and timing chain tensioner, per procedure outlined in WSM, Section 303-01.
3. If cylinder leakage and compression tests are inconclusive, perform misfire diagnostic, per TSB 05-22-8.

I have a Ford F250 Extended cab that started running rough and losing power this morning got Codes P0301 P0303 P1151 and P0171 What should i Do?

P0301 = Misfire cylinder #1P0303 = Misfire cylinder #2
P0171 = System too lean cylinder #1
Are you sure on the P1151 code? I am thinking this may be a P0151 which is O2 sensor related.
This looks like you have a fuel system related misfire. I would do a fuel injection cleaning service and then clear codes and see if the codes regenerate.
