I got the flashing service engine soon light and the exact number codes i don't know but their missfire on #1 cylinder and something to do with the #1 injector


Missfire on any cylinder can be caused by a problem with an injector. You could simply replace the injector. You may also want to inspect the wire leading to the injector, sometimes that can rub against stuff and the signal can get grounded instead of opening the injector.

Ran out of gas ran fine for about 2 days went to friends when leaving it died,started right back up,but shaking real bad like a missfire,checked and seems the coil packs r ok,


Sounds like something in fuel system is clogged form running to low on fuel if vehicle is old and fuel filter has not been replaced for a long time.
It does not take much but a small particle to clog injector or it could be fuel pump is going out. You need to check fuel pressure and change filter and also you might have to get fuel system flushed and you might just have replace injector at worst. Hope this helps

What does the code "misfire on bank 1 mean" on a diagnostic code for a 2000 lincoln navigator mean?


Do you mean "missfire on cylinder 1", code P0301? If so, that means that the computer has detected incomplete combustion in the #1 cylinder, which would be the front passenger side cylinder. There are many potential causes to a cylinder missfire ranging from worn / bad ignition components, clogged / bad fuel injector or even internal engine damage.

However the most common cause, especially on ford vehicles is a bad ignition coil. When trying to determine the cause of a missfire on an engine such as the one in your Navigator i start with removing the plug and checking for carbon tracing, excessive plug gap or contaminants on the plug. If that checks out ok i then swap the ignition coil from the missfiring cylinder to one that isn't. For example, I would swap the ignition coil from #1 to #2 and clear the codes. Then drive around until the light comes back. If it comes back with a missfire on cylinder #2 then you know the cause is the ignition coil and it has to be replaced. If it doesn't then it is something else causing the missfire which will require a bit more diagnostics.

How many miles are on your Navigator? Have the plugs ever been replaced? If you have close to 100k it would be a good idea to replace all of the plugs. Be careful when removing the plugs, it's not difficult to pull the threads right out of the head when removing the plug.

Hesating, Though I had bad gas, I was told that my first piston is miss fireing. How can I fix it?


You will first need to determine what is causing cylinder number one to missfire. Could be a clogged fuel injector, bad ignition wire, bad spark plug, burnt/bent/stuck valve, cracked cylinder head, bent push rod, collapsed lifter, flat cam shaft. I could keep going, point being there is no easy fix unless we start eliminating possible causes. You having bad gas I would lean more towards the injector or the spark plug.

Motor Missfire in 1999 Buick Park Avenue Ultra


Yes it can be a clogged or bad injector or low compression in cylinder #2. Remove the plugs and run a compression test first. If compression is good I'd say it was a bad injector.
