Look at the spark plug, if looks ok then that's not the problem.with spark plug out check cylinder compression if good then check fuel injector, reinstall spark plug, start engine and listen for clicking noise at fuel injector, if none bad injector replace.

How can i get rid of misfiring on engine


First, you must determine why it is misfiring. Any codes set? Replaced spark plugs and wires? Rotor and cap? Random misfires are often bad ignition module, which can be tested at parts store. It would help to know what you are working on.

What does po 305 cylinder 4 misfire mean? Po 316 misfire on startup? po 300 random misfire? Po 305 Cylinder 5 misfire?


Hi Micaela:
I'd be looking for ignition problems like shorting out spark plug leads or a bad distributor cap. Try running it in a really dark place and see if you can see sparks around the plug wires.

I have 03 envoy so 6 cylinder change sparks plugs change oil p0300 GMC code check engine light blinking misfiring


engine misfiring can be either plugs ( changed) HT leads ( broken internally from pulling them off the plugs to do the change)and injector faults. Moving wires around to get to plugs.. If you have individual coil packs for the plugs then check that they have refitted correctly or the wires and connections for them are properly connected .. If all is ok then have a compression test done as low compression shows up as one of the reasons for random / multiple misfires (po300)

I have a 1996 dodge grand caravan,v6 3.8L .it keeps pulling the code(random misfire). I've changed the coil pack,did a full tuneup(plugs,wires,fluids,all of it.and it still keeps misfiring when I first...


misfires are more from faulty injectors / leaking injectors so check the codes as the misfire code will indicate the problem cylinder
exampl code p0300 is random misfires and codes p0301 through to p 0308 is the cylinder ie p 0303 is no 3 cylinder

Misfires while idling


When the compression is at it's peak at idle the cylinder pressure prevents the spark from occurring because of the high resistance caused across the plug gap. IT there is a problem in the carbon tracked leads and connections then the spark fails and the plugs misfire . So change the leads out for some good quality leads . Next check the injectors as they will also cause random misfire if they are dirty and squirting and not spraying

The plugs and crank sensor could have done it, but the TPS and idle air control would have nothing to do with a random miss.
A more likely cause is the ignition module or a fuel problem. You may have to wait until the problem is bad enough to kill the engine or you have more codes to check out.

P0300


Im assuming your asking about the ODB-II codes, this code,P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected.
A P0300 diagnostic code indicates a random or multiple misfire. If the last digit is a number other than zero, it corresponds to the cylinder number that is misfiring. A P0302 code, for example, would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring. Unfortunately, a P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinder(s) is/are mis-firing, nor why.
Here are a few things that could be the cause.
  • Faulty spark plugs or wires
  • Faulty coil (pack)
  • Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  • Faulty fuel injector(s)
  • Burned exhaust valve
  • Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  • Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
  • Faulty camshaft position sensor
  • Defective computer

    I would start things out with a tune up, new plugs and wires, wires break down after time and could be grounding out, or arcing between themselves causing a misfire.

    Heavy idle, random misfire code 04 trailblazer


    I would start with the inlet manifold gasket, these are know to break down causing vacuum leaks which can cause this issue, also check around engine for other vacuum leaks

    96 bmw 740il misfire


    This is a pretty common problem. I would change your valve cover gaskets. They run around ~ 50 bucks. If they are bad it will leak oil into spark plug well and cause a misfire. Very known on the 740.. Also if tune was not anytime not too long ago id change spark plugs while you at it. Then clear the computer and if you still get misfire on 8 try changing the ignition coil which is right about the cylinder with cylinder ignition coil 5. clear the computer. if you get random misfire and misfire cyclinder 5 after then its your ignition coil. parts store runs around 100 bucks
