Question about 2002 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

I had a cylinder 5 misfire on my 2002 chevy Camaro v6 3.8. I changed the spark plugs and the spark plug wires and the car runs great, until i give it alot of gas. If i accelerate too quickly now the car acts like it wants to shut down and starts jerking. If I let off the gas she runs perfect. No service engine light comes on anymore either but my code reader shows a yellow emissions light now. do I just have to run it longer or is it a fuel problem? Any clues?

Sounds like spark plug coil is bad. had the same problem on my truck also. check wich cylinder is misfiring and replace the coil and maybe the plug also. if the plug looks good leave it. autozone can give you a read out. when checking the coil, if it has a rust color to it its bad and needs to be replaced. 02 z28

My car is cutting off every time im going under 1000rpm. mercury sable 2002. codes were p0301 p0302 and p0316 until i changed crank sensor and spark plugs now it says p0316 p0305 p0306.. whats going on?...


Hi

P0305 is misfire in cylinder #5.
P0306 is misfire in cylinder#6.
P0316 is misfire on start up.
Have the plugs on those 2 cylinders, and the 2 fuel injectors checked, also check for spark from the coil on those 2 plug wires.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I have a 2001 chevy malibu. I am getting a misfire in cylinder 5. I have changed the coil pack and spark plug, and I am still get a misfire code on cylinder 5.


Did you replace the ignition wire? If you have replaced the wire litsen for a vacuum leak if your not sure take a can of wd40 and spray it at the intake manifold gasket if starts to run at a higher rpm your problem is here replace the gasket. Missfire codes are not always spark plugs , coils or wirers.

I changed my spark plugs and afterwards the chech engine light came on. the jeep runs great. what can make that happen?


IT could be something such as a loose plug wire.The best advise I can give you is to take your jeep to your local auto parts store and have them pull the codes out of your on board computer.This will give you an area that you can concentrate on to make the necessary repairs to get your check engine light to go out.

Have a 2002 Chevy Silverado 5.3 4wd. having engin hesitation problems.... service engine light came on...... Changed plugs (Autolite .040 gap) and wires. Problem continued, got worse Had auto parts...


Try swapping the injector on that cylinder with the one next to it and see if the misfire changes to the other cylinder.If it does then you have a plugged or bad injector.It it still stays on that same cylinder then check compression on the number 6 cylinder.Let me know what you find out.Good luck.

#5 cylinder misfire


I have a corolla and had #4 cylinder misfire also diagnosed at autozone. After changing the spark plugs, problem persisted, along with the same error code, so they recommended changing the spark plug wires, and that is what fixed it. I would have changed the rotor cap too, but was low on dough. Glad that was not the problem.
