Either the fuel injector is blocked or not functional on #2 cylinder, or the coil pack is not firing the spark plug there.

Check coolant level and if thermostat is stuck closed and if the fan is not running for the radiator.

2006 ford freestar po304

Code 300 is a random miss not serious enough to peg a cylinder, code 302 is for cylinder 2 and code 304 is cylinder 4. Code 402 is for an EGR flow problem.
Its possible the EGR problem is causing the missfires. The computer sets the 300 codes when RPM drops on a cylinder. The computer does not know why. So it could be spark, fuel, compression, or a vac leak.

It could be the co2 sensor, but have you thought of having a cylinder leakage test done?? A competent garage should be able to perform this test for you. Basically they pump compressed air into each cylinder on the firing stroke, in turn, to establish that all is gas tight. If you have a broken piston ring or leaking valve, this will show up as a leak and could explain the rough running, especially on number five.

Depending on the miles on it, Usually a missfire has to do with a bad spark plug or spark plug wires, If they never been changed, If it has verry high mileledge on it end was not maintained well, There could be low compression in a cylinder, That can cause it to run rough, Hope this helps you out,

i would definately replace the coil. pretty certain that will solve your problem. do not drive with misfire or that can cause fruther damage such as catalyst failing, which is prety expensive.

How to repair car showing dianostic code P0316

P0316 is a code that sets when the pcm detects a cylinder missfire at initial start up. Do you feel a rough idle when you first start it up? Its common for the ignition coils to fail on the 3.9v6 on the LS due to water intrusion. If you have access to a scanner you can see which cylinder it is that is missfiring and swap coils and spark plugs with other cylinders. If the missfire follows either then you can determine that the fault is in the coil or spark plug.

Sounds Like the Common Item on these Saturns, and that is ( (COIL PACK) you Probably have the Missfire on Matching Cylinder BANK . You DO NEED to Check For Codes to ZERO in on it I think you will see a CODE po161 - 166 < I Believe these are the Codes that set for MISSFIRE .
