The knocking can be from #5 cylinder which should be the front cylinder on the drivers side.
You should disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes and see if the reader says the same thing after you restart the car.

If it does not cure the problem, it could be the coil pak for #5. The last thing would be a dirty or bad injector for #5. Hopefully the reader will show you fixed it.

The knock you refer to can easily be a balljoint or tierod end. If you are due for a frontend alignment those are parts which will be checked before an alignment can be done.

Eng code p0355 and p0305 2007 mbz ml350 eng runs rough but after restarting runs ok.


p0355 indicates that engine misfire is present.

p0305 indicates that the misfire is in the cylinder number 5

Have the spark plug tested/replaced and test the cylinder number 5 spark plug coil.

Why does my car shakes and goes dead when pushing the accelerator


It could be couple problems:
-Misfire. (Include bad injector, Coil, spark plug wire)
-Lost compression due to broken valves, cylinder wall and head or gasket.

Solution:
1 -Do compression test.
- If not with in specification (Too low) Need rebuild engine due to broken valve, blow out gasket or even broken cylinder wall.
-All cylinder has good compression:
Now need to check Spark plug, wire and all injector. Injector must be
with in specification (In Ohm) Follow its manual.

Engine light comes on - Code shows P0300 and then


OBD II 300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected

When the misfire monitor detects a misfire, it will trigger the check engine light with the specific cylinder number as the last digit in the P030X code. For instance cylinder 1 misfire is P0301, cylinder 2 is P0302 etc. In this case we have either multiple cylinders misfiring, or the computer simply can't determine the specific cylinder, and as such we are left with the P0300 in computer memory.

Possible Causes:

Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect Fuel Pressure
EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiring
Ignition module or related wiring issues
Ignition related sensor faults or wiring issues

1999 Town Car began running very rough - suddenly.


When cleaning your engine, water/degreaser went down the spark plug ports. Try using a air compressor blow gun to remove the moisture from around the spark plugs and boots. The water was causing the engine to misfire on 3 cylinders at first and as the ports started to evaporate the moisture, the less misfiring was occuring. Dry thouroughly and hopefully coils do not have damage to them. Also check to make sure the boot is making good contact with the spark plug.

Replace spark plugs with plat core plug


Platinum plugs are NOT recommended for the Echo. The heat ranges are different. Put the right plugs in it (buy them from a Toyota dealer) and see if your problem vanishes. I get this quite a bit, customers put in new plugs, and it runs worse than it did before they changed the plugs. Note that ALL Toyota engines have a specific plug engineered for each engine. Platinums do not work unless the engine was designed for it. Same with iridium and NO Toyota runs well on the "split fire" plugs. If the problem persidts, change the coils around, see if the misfire "moves" to a new location, and you get a DTC P-0300, P-0301 and P-0302. If so, your coil pack may have failed, BUT, do the plugs first.
