My scanner is showing 2 codes 303 & 306..i know its for #3  cyl. any advice /next step/is it coils? / plugs? /help


Common Problems That Trigger the P0306

Worn out spark plugs, ignition wires, coil(s), distributor cap and rotor (when applicable)
Incorrect ignition timing
Vacuum leak(s)
Low or weak fuel pressure
Improperly functioning EGR system
Defective Mass Air Flow Sensor
Defective Crankshaft and/or Camshaft Sensor
Defective Throttle Position Sensor
Mechanical engine problems (i.e.—low compression, leaking head gasket(s), or valve problems


I hade the same problem and changed the cranckshaft sensor and that was it. Above I have included the possible reasons for this code if you meant P0306.

REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR REPLACE SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES IF NOT BEEN CHANGED IN LONG PERIOD OF TIME.CHECK IGNITION TIMING.CHANGE AIR FILTER CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS.IF ENGINE STILL MISFIRE IGNITION COIL IS WEAK OR YOU HAVE LOW CYLINDER COMPRESSION.

Its like its missing,no power.maybe one cyl not working prop


MANY THINGS WILL CAUSE MISSING AND NO POWER LIKE FAULTY TPS SENSOR. SOUND LIKE STOPPED UP FUEL FILTER, CLOGGED FUEL INJECTORS, CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS IF YOU HAVE ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTIONS.OMIT IF YOU HAVE 2 BARREL CARBURETOR. DO A LITTLE TUNE UP.REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR. REPLACE SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES. A BAD IGNITION COIL WILL CAUSE ENGINE TO MISS.DO A COMPRESSION TEST CHECK FOR WORN CYLINDERS WILL CAUSE ENGINE MISS.

All my cylinders are misfiring.


Hi. This vehicle is equipped with a Electronic distributor ignition assembly. There is no ICM(ignition control module) on your model. This will narrow the problem areas down a bit. The most common area of concern will be the distributor cap.This Component may be worn, cracked, or loose. Inspect the cap for faults, and replace if necessary. The next area of concern will be a set of faulty, or worn spark plug wires. Inspect the wire sets for damage. If you have not replaced the sets for quite some time, simply replace them asap.

Another area of concern will be the coils. The ignition coil is designed to operate without an external ballast resistor. Inspect the coil for arcing. Test the coil primary and secondary resistance. When using an ohmmeter, the primary readings should be 0.97-1.18 ohms and the secondary resistance should be 11,300-15,300 ohms. replace the coil(s), that do not rate correctly.

The above areas are the most common. Here is a list of some other problem areas, that will cause multiple misfiring.

1. Crankshaft/Camshaft sensor- Check the wiring at the Crankshaft sensor housing. Make sure the sensor is not loose, or damaged. The cam sensor is mounted in the distributor rotor area, under the cap. It is an integrated part of the distributor.

2. Spark plug(s)- replace if necessary.

3. PCV Valve - Check the valve, and hose for damage.

4. Fuel Pump - A weak fuel pump will produce less than normal pressure. this will cause the engine g to misfire. Check the ground at the pump for corrosion. Clean, ro replace, if necessary.

5. Timing settings - A slipped timing chain, or belt will cause a misfire, also. check the timing ratings for slipped intervals. replace the belt, or chain, if needed.

6. Injectors - A faulty set of injectors will cause a misfire. make sure that the injectors are functioning properly.

7. MAP- A failed MAP sensor will induce misfiring. This will, usually, will trigger the engine light.

1994 toyota corolla has a runs rough at idle and lacked power, would stall sometimes at stop. Also has low idle,try timming and new plugs, and checked distriburtor cap and fuel filter and fuel regulator


I have a similar problem with one of my Toyota Corollas. It's a 95 model with the 1.8L engine (7A-FE, automatic). But unlike yours, it has plenty of power while running. Here's what it does. Occasionally the engine misses. Sometimes it will die. This is most likely to happen when you start the car and put it in reverse and start rolling without giving the engine time to adjust. I've been told by some customers that it will die sometimes when coming to a stop. But this has never happened when I drive it. I don't think it's a fuel issue because the car runs just fine when it's running.

Here's what I've tried so far:

  1. Replaced spark plugs and wires.
  2. Used gasoline additive fuel injector cleaner.
  3. Checked air filter.
  4. Checked vacuum hoses for leaks.
  5. Replaced PCV valve and hoses.
  6. Cleaned the air intake and throttle body with carburetor cleaner.
So far there is no change in the problem.

What I plan to do next:
  1. Check the throttle position sensor.
  2. Check the MAF sensor.
  3. Adjust the idle via the set screw.

After that I have no idea what to do next if the problem persists. The check engine light is not on so I don't think there are any error codes. Will let you know.
