P0306 CODE after tune-up? Cleared codes after.

P0306 CODE after tune-up? Cleared the codes by removing battery cables. Started and ran fine. Next morning it was rough running. Test drove later in the day, ran like new??????????

I know the code shows a cylinder 6 misfire.

Could be lean air/fuel ratio
Could be ignition system
Could be mechanical condition
Could be vaccuum leak

Car ran fine on Friday did not drive after that. Sunday morning, check engine light was on and blinking when I tried to drive it. Now it is just lite solid.

If you bought the spark plugs at auto zone,these are factory seconds,and will fail under the ignition system you have,check the coil boots also,make sure they are good and the boots are on good,but it is most likely in the ignition area.

Having codes P0306 and P0316 show up for 2005 Ford Taurus

Well code 306 is for a miss on cylinder six and code 316 is for a miss detected on startup, which you probably already know.
Since I assume you have replaced the ignition parts for that cylinder,
the next component to check is the injector. You may want to check fuel pressure too.

i just had the same problem in my bmw 325i. Probably vaccum leak or exhaust leak. Check that nothing came loose in these areas. It takes time for your car to learn the new CPS (cam pos. sensor) so give it a few days and reset the code again and see if it works.

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

Rough running

Computers aren't ALWAYS correct. If a code wasn't cleared after the original problem, it will read the same codes off to the diagnostic. I would remove the wire connector to each injector while it's running. If one of them makes no difference THAT is your culprit. Let me know please!
