SOURCE: 2000 CIVIC System too lean Cylinder 3 and 4 misfire Deteced

  1. P0171: This means that the oxygen sensor has detected a lean air-fuel ratio. This can be caused due to a vaccuum leak or a problem in the HO2S circuit or the HO2S (Heated Oxygen Sensor) itself. (Bank one Sensor one). This is commonly located along the exhaust pipe. It could also be a bad Mass Air Flow sensor or a bad Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. Diagnostic checks will be needed to be carried out to be verified though
  2. Well as for the other codes, it means #3&4 cylinders are misfiring. It is a possibility that the P0171 code mite have caused the others to show up. I can be wrong though. But it is a strong possibility. If the air fuel mixtue is too lean indeed, mis-firing will occur, unless it is an actual electronic and not a mechnical problem. By the way, when these codes appear, how is the engine's performance. Does it remain the same or behaves poorly?

SOURCE: 2002 pontiac grand am 4 cylinder sedan cant pass emissions

not enough information so i will cover many possibilities:

new spark plugs would be a good place to start .. then replace the ignition wires, clean the coil insulator .. clean or replace the distributor cap .. when you replaced the O2 sensor that should have eliminated the "heater circuit" problem (the O2 sensor has a built in heater that gets it up to working temprature faster at warm up) .. .. if the wiring and connectors to the O2 sensor are ok then that fault code should go away .. multiple misfires will keep the trouble light on .. that could also be caused by a sticking or dirty injector or dirty throttle body.. you can use a good injector cleaner for that .also look for a cracked vacuum hose ... it would be good to know the present fault code since it should have changed once you installed the new O2 sensor .. there may be two O2 sensors (one later in the exhaust system) ..it sounds like you got the right one but make sure ..it may take some time for the computer to adjust to the new O2 sensor and for the injector cleaner to work .. make sure new plugs are gapped properly and use an "antiseize" compound on the threads .. that reduces the probability of the plugs sticking in their sockets .. on aluminum heads the plugs want to seize (or weld) in place after a long time. .. that makes them really hard to get out later .. just a tiny amount of antiseize compound on the theads helps a lot .. be careful not to overrtighten plugs in aluminum heads ..
if your engine is badly missing on one cylinder (you should easily detect that) then a sticking injector would be suspect .. there are some simple ways to get it working again if thats the case ..

SOURCE: 97 k1500 5.7 liter vortec misses on cylinders 3

I have had continuous missing issues on my 1997 Silverado after i had a new engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Today I purchased a new gasket for the EGR Valve and removed it. The mechanic had re-used the old gasket when he replaced the engine and cut corners to save $2.00. I found he had installed the EGR bass-ackwards causing my check engine light to stay on and the engine always to miss. Engine runs GREAT now

check the level of dot 3 oil in the reserves...remember you replaced the lines and air has gotten into it- ti may take a bit to fill caliper..
if this doesnt work there might be a problem with the brakes fluid dispersion- it regulates the amount of fluid to each wheel...

I have a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus. Check engine light came on and it has been just losing power.


Yes, the misses are cutting your power in half. The cylinders in the back half of the engine are not firing. The problem must be diagnosed to estimate repair costs. Possible causes are
1. Injector wiring harness cut or disconnected.
2. Major intake manifold gasket leak.
3. Camshaft slipped timing.

I have listed these in order of cost to repair, so have someone check for these conditions in the order above.

If your car is the 2.4L 4 cylinder ( most popular) then it doesn't have a distributor.
The 2.0L 4 cylinder doesn't have a distributor.

The 2.5L 6 cylinder does have a distributor.

Need the firing order


I apologize for the late response...Due to the bad economic situation this site has had a substantial (+50%) increase in the number of questions being asked in the last four months.

Not sure if you have the 4 or 6 cylinder, so I've included both below:

For the 2.4L (4-cylinders):
Firing Order:
1-3-4-2
Cylinders:
1------2------3-------4
(front of vehicle)
Ignition Coil:
.............................<--------4---------
------1------->
.............................<--Connector
------2------->
.............................<--------3---------
...........(FRONT OF VEHICLE)

For the 2.5L (6-cylinders):
Firing Order:
1-2-3-4-5-6
Cylinders:
1------3------5
2------4------6
(front of vehicle)
Distributor:
...................5
........4
.............................3
........2
......................... 1
...............6
(FRONT OF VEHICLE)
