P0302 means number two cylinder has a misfire, due to possibly a spark plug, spark plug wire, ignition coil, fuel injector or something mechanical in the engine like a bad valve, valve spring etc. Start at the front of the engine, where all the accessories are mounted(alternator, power steering pump, etc) then count each each spark plug from left to right in normal order. The cylinder to the left will be 1, and the cylinder to the far right will be 4. When you locate number 2 cylinder, check the plug wire for damage. remove the spark plug and inspect it for wear. A new set of spark plugs and wires will probably fix your problem. Otherwise it may me a coil pack or ignition module. Hope this helps.

    Does that mean that 304 and 306 are the 4th and 6th cylinders?

2004 jeep wrangler engine code P0301


P0301 - Cylinder 1 misfire detected........P0302 - Cylinder 2 misfire deteced, and so on........so either it is a current misfire, which you would be running on 4 cylinders instead of 3, or it is an intermittent problem.......i will provide some possiblities,,,
- ignition system (spark plugs, leads, coil packs)
- fuel system (injectors, ecu etc)
- running out of fuel
- low compression

Basically, if your vehciel has not had service for a while, change the spark plugs, and engine oil, and give her some loving, tender care....

However, if it is regularly servicedm there might be a bigger problem.....

More info required to help you.

Check engine light codes and troubleshooting


Sounds like you have a vacuum leak for the lean code and the misfires. I don't see a 473 code in my manual, but have a 463. The 463 is for the fuel level sensor open or voltage high.

Put the key in the ignition and turn it on and off (3) times without starting the jeep, leaving it in the on position count the (1) flashing indicator Light, Eg: (5) flashes, Then there will be a pause, then it may flash (3) times, this is a code #53. Keep your Eye on them and write them down. If you should miss (1) Repeat as many times as needed, Info: A #55 means there are no codes!!

2002 Jeep Wrangler 4.0 When Driving the Engine Dies


You need to do a code check. if no codes, check fuel supply (pump and filter) Quick way to isolate problem to either fuel or spark is to spray carb cleaner into intake while cranking. If engine starts, then it's fuel...If not, then I'd suspect spark...common problem there is crank sensor, but don't replace it without testing first!!!

Check Engine Light P0302 Code


p0302 is a cylinder #2 misfire. when they swiched the coils did the misfire follow the coil or did it stay on cyl.#2. if the problem stayed with #2 they need to pull the cylinder head and check the valves with known good valves. have them install it into the cylinder head with valve lapping compound and run a pattern. if the cylinder head comes out with a good pattern replace the valves with the new pieces and reassemble the motor. if not the vehicle will need a new cylinder head

My 2002 jeep wrangler sport 4 cyl engine lite stays on dashboard,it does not affect performance.


Have you taken it to your mechanic to run the diagnostics... I had the same issue and it turned out to be a vapor lock issue that required a gas tank gasket replaced.
