Clear the computer. Either use a scanner or disconnect the NEG battery cable for 10 minutes. The old defect takes 25 to 35 startups to clear itself. Then there is the possibility that #5 is a different cylinder on that motor. The engine may be misfiring because of a bad injector on #5.

2004 Sorento began with code P0305, cyl #5 misfire. Inspected and replaced plugs, wires, and coil pack on cyl #2. Repair shop told me cyl #5 injector bad so they replaced. Still has misfire.I suggeste


If you had code P0305, I don't know why they would have done anything to the #2 cylinder but if they have already replaced the plugs, wires and injector; here are a few more items to check:
1) Check connections from ECM. Look for any corrosions or bent/broken pins.
2) Check the fuel line pressure
3) Check the engine compression
4) And if the above are good, then you will probably have a defective ECM

How do i replace the wire harness connector that clips to coils on jeep liberty sport 6v 3.7l


It's pretty basic on this. Test your clip by plugging it into the coil first, and make sure that it is the correct one. If yes, you need to simply cut the old plug off and connect the wires to your new one (in the right order) with a simple but connector sold at any auto shop/parts store or electrical shop.

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 have a 1998 D1500 318 V-8 3.2L . The computer keeps tripping the check engine light and coding cylinder 4 misfire--yet the plug is good and the distributor cap is not purnt...computer problem??


Hi, there are 2 common reasons for a single cylinder misfire you have not addressed it: faulty fuel injector and burnt valve.
You need a voltmeter to test the injector:
Check the resistance across the injector terminals. It should be about 12 ohms. If open or shorted, replace the injector.
After removing an injector, apply 12 volts DC across the terminals. A "click" should be heard. If not, replace the injector.
If ok, then you need to do an engine compression leakdown test with cylinder compression gauge. if compression leaks down in that cylinder, then you have a burnt valve causing the misfire

I have a ford explorer 99 but it's giving a error code PO306 what do u think it is


It sounds like a misfire. Check spark plugs 5 and 6. It could be bad fuel, bad plug wire, or weak coil. Check the fuel injectors as well. Other possible causes could be an egr valve stuck open, vacuum leaks, low fuel pressure.

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
