Hi,

If you've already extracted the Trouble codes from your vehicle's computer (and no codes present), then inspect the components on that cylinder: Spark Plugs; HT Leads. If these prove ok, then have compressions done.

Vaccuum leaks can also cause cylinder misfire - spray liquid around the inlet manifold and vaccuum hoses, to check for leaks.

Either bad coil pack, leaky vacuum, leaky gasket, bad plug or plug wire or faulty injector.

Misfired cylinder 6, replaced coil, plug Misfired cylinder 5, replaced coil, plug Misfired unsure which yet, all of these happening within a week. It will run fine for a day or so after rep


change all plugs with proper ones - they are picky for some reason - do not change number or brand from original - coils were probably ok, - get some injector cleaner and run through it but check for exhaust leak at e g r tube - is a common over looked cause of misfire - a thing to keep in mind is misfire isn't always spark issue. hope I was of some help

Flashing SES, P0305, and P1145


A flashing SES light means that you are operating the vehicle under conditions that are DESTROYING your catalytic converters! This is not good.

Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0305 is defined by SAE J2012 as "Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected".

DTC P1145 is a "manufacturer-specific code" and is defined by Nissan as "Bank 2 Intake Valve Timing Control Position Sensor - High Or Low Voltage"

So, to put it simply, you need to find out WHY cylinder #5 is misfiring and get it fixed. You also need to diagnose the intake valve timing control position sensor circuits on bank 2 to (1) find out if the voltage is HIGHER or LOWER than specification (since the code itself is not specific about which it is). And (2) find out what is CAUSING the voltage to be out of specification and take the appropriate action correct it.

Missing,viborating


Misfire could be a number of things:
a) spark plugs - change them if used over 15K miles - inspect/regap.
b) spark plug wires - change them if over 15K miles - inspect
c) ECM (electronic control module) - test with HEI (high energy ignition) tester.

The vibrating tells me that the engine is running on less than its normal compliment of cylinders - the shaking is produced by the imbalance caused in the engine by one (or more) cylinder(s)
not firing at all.

The "Check Engine" light probably is coming on due the the misfire condition. Go to Pep Boys or
Advance Auto Pats, where they'll tell you (free) your codes causing the "Check Engine' light to be
lit - the code coming from your truck's computer will probably be one or more of:
P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder misfire detected
P0301 - Cylinder 1 misfire detected
P0302 - Cylinder 2 misfire detected
P0303 - Cylinder 3 misfire detected
P0304 - Cylinder 4 misfire detected
P0305 - Cylinder 5 misfire detected
P0306 - Cylinder 6 misfire detected
P0307 - Cylinder 7 misfire detected
P0308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected
P0313 - Misfire detected with low fuel

Cylinder number 5 is misfiring. Check spark plug, spark plug wire and ignition coil for the number 5 cylinder. The number 5 cylinder is the closest to the front of the car on the drivers side. With engine running in dark (at night) take a spray bottle of water and lightly mist spark plug wires and coil and look for arcing. Autozone will test coil for free.
