A misfire can be caused by a number of different defects

  • A spark plug may be breaking down under certain conditions.
  • The cables which carry power to the plugs may be defective.
  • If the "Check Engine" light came on the fault would be most likely found in the ignition system.
  • The ignition coils
  • The crankshaft or camshaft pickup sensors.
  • The computer output circuit may be defective
  • Any one of the above problems may be caused by the electrical circuits or a defective component
Auto Zone gave the correct information.

08 G6 GT the engine light is on and the traction control light is on also . it ran great the night befor this bit it is missing and has no power now


If your lucky, your car is still under warranty. If your warranty is over, you can go to Auto Zone and have the car scanned for the DTC codes. The DTC codes will inform you the issues that need to be addressed so you can have your car running 100% again. Note: Auto Zone scan free of charge and can give you the step by step instruction to address the issues free of charge and if there are any parts that need to be replace, there parts price are reasonable and most of the time are life time replacements. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again soon. As long as your DTC codes are active, the engine will be powered down at 30% less.

Make sure you installed the correct TP sensor. If so you may have a bad one. I have gotten bad "new" parts before. If all your problems started with the installed part start there.

Code P0401 1998 Toyota Camry


I'm assuming that it is a four cyl.The p0401 code is for insufficient egr flow.Most of the time it is the egr vsv valve (vsv means vacuum switching valve)which is what controls the vacuum to the egr valve to open it.It is kind of hard to get to as it is on the block under the head on the back side.If you follow the hose from the egr valve it goes to the vsv.I have also seen mice eat holes in the vacuum line which would also give you problems.I hope this help and let me know if you have anymore questions

It sounds like a electrical problem to me. Like the ignition control module. It can be tested at your local auto parts stores.
