FUEL INJECTOR MISSFIRE

I WAS TOLD BY A MECHANIC THAT THE WIRING AND CLIP CONNECTED TO THE FUEL INJECTOR WAS CAUSING MY CAR TO MISSFIRE. BUT I TALKED TO ANOTHER MECHANIC AND HE SAID THAT COULDN'T BE. COULD THE WIRING BE BAD?? OR IS IT A BAD FUEL INJECTOR??

    the fuel injector is a electro mechanical device and is more prone to defects than an electronic control circuits, you can purchase a simple tester unit to check for pulses at the injectors, if the pulses are present your injector needs replacing, if not it may be wiring possibly an open ground, otherwise the fault is in the output output driver transistor in the engine management computer .

It could be a bad spark plug. just pull boot off of suspected bad plug. if engine performance changes then more than likey its a bad spark plug. i had same problem before xmas. simple fix. if you change one plug just change out all for overall performance.

2004 Ford Escape engine missfire


that sounds like those cylinders injectors might be the problem . When an injector over fuels or fails to supply fuel it would create a misfire just like if a plug or coil failed

Misfiring


code p0303 refers to cyl 3 misfire detected ===causes engine mechanical fault--wiring--ignition/fuel system--injector--ECT/MAF sensor--ECM
code p0316 refers to misfire detected during start up --first 1000 revs===causes --engine mechanical fault--wiring--ignition/furl system--injector
the common fault cause is ignition/ fuel system and injectors so I would be checking fuel pressure and injector systems for clean and wiring connections are good especially on no 3 injector.

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.

Try running some fuel injector cleaner through your fuel tank. What you may have are a couple of plugged or missfiring fuel injectors. I would suggest checking all of your wiring to your injectors to insure good connection, replace your fuel filter and check for vacuum leaks.
