Question about 2004 Audi TT

1 Answer

Misfiriing I have an 2004 Audi TT 1.8. For a long time, I kept getting an OBD code signifying that the #3 cylinder was misfiring. I replaced the #3 coil,but the car began to smoke, so I put the old one back in and the misfiring went away for awhile. Now I am getting codes for #2,3, and 4 cylinders misfiring. Additionally, my Actron scanner is giving me a 2181 code. What does that mean? I asked an import parts store what could be wrong and they said that the ECU goes out a lot on these Audi's. What do you think the problem is? Ed

I have a 2000 Dodge Stratus with a random misfire on 1,3 and 5. The engine runs fine besides a twitch in the motor that can be felt while idling. Already replaced plugs and wires. Suggestions?


get the OBD codes read this will tell you which switch/sensor is causing the issue , the last random misfire i encountered turned out to be low cylinder compression so if the OBD code says " random misfire " then get the cylinder compressions read , hope this helps

Codes p 300 and 302 has been tough to get it read bc won't stay on hut a few daysand then q uit


These codes indicate a multiple misfire (P0300) and a misfire on cylinders #1 and #3. This can normally indicate and issue with jumped timing or a possible vacuum leak. May also indicate a faulty ignition coil and wire.

Check engine compression and compare. then test running engine compression most engines have about 130-170 cranking compression and about 90-110 running compression. OR bring that cylinder to its Top Dead Center compression stroke apply air to the cylinder and check to see where the air is going open throttle plate bad intake valve, from exhaust pipe bad exhaust valve, from oil cap piston rings.

P0316 p0301


both codes signify a misfire code 301 is misfire in cylinder 1 and code 316 is misfire detected in the first 1000 rpms from the sound of a 2004 im guessing it has coil on plugs meaning a boot and wires from the boot to the computer those boots can be real espensive but your fuel injector could of gone out in cylinder 1 as well

While driving the car started to miss badly, the check engine light came on then began to flash. checked for codes, engine missfire was the only stored code. owners man. said cat. problem ?


It's not a cat problem or you'd have misfires on all cylinders. P0300 is random misfires, and the codes increment to show what cylinder is misfiring. P0301 is a misfire on cylinder 1, P0302 is cylinder 2, etc. You likely have a bad coilpack. Whichever cylinder is indicated, replace that coilpack.

Poor performance, hesitation, sluggish and shaking


Those are cylinder misfire codes. PO300 is random misfires (meaning 1+ cylinders misfired) and the other 2 codes are for cylinder #1 and 2. Did you change the ignition coils yet on 1 and 2?

Do you let the tank go to empty before refueling a lot?

2004 Audi A4 misfire


it is always a good idea to stay with o.e.m parts and yes there is updated parts in the newer coils. and yes the M.A.F will also cause misfire faults but will not make check engine light flash or make car shake and shudder. also check you wire harness going to your coils make sure your ground wires are not cracked. That could be the main culprate. good luck hope this helps
