Sounds like the cat is clogged. Replace it. This is caused by bad gas or just because it got old. Also, have a look at ignition wires. Timing belts either are functioning or broken. They don't sound like anything. If you are at a recommended replacement point...do it. It's much cheaper than waiting for it to break. Engine damage could result upon breakage.

Pull the wires and plugs and check them for oil. Mine has a valve cover gasket leak that can cause misfires like this. The oil gets trapped in the spark plug wells and floods the wires.

Check out the AboutAutomobile.com site for NHTSA complaints. I believe there was a defect in the cylinder heads for this engine. The redesigned heads have a different suffix letter than the stock heads.

For a time, the Manufactuer was paying for the repair.

I have a KIA Sportage T reg petrol 2.00L and it is missfiring/chugging I hear this may be a common problem vcan you suggest anything Thanks


Misfire issues can generally be categorized as localized or random.A localized misfire in my definition would occur on at most two specific cylinders. In OBD II diagnostic code terms, that would be 2 trouble codes of the form P030x and P030y.; whereas a code P0300 or several different codes P030a, b, c, etc. would indicate a random misfire issue.These two different categories of misfire call for different troubleshooting procedures.In each case, however, the cause of the misfire can be electrical or air/fuel related and can also be continuous or intermittent.I will start with the localized case, so if you have a random misfire, please skip ahead to that section of the post.

better look at the blender door. this is a vacuum controled door that allows hot or cold air to flow into the HVAC system and blends the temps together to make the desired temp for you, but if this is electronicly controled you might have a temp sending unit bad or even a control unit bad, as for the miss fire most people wouldn't know a miss fire from a bump in the road anymore. engines anymore if there is a missfire code, there is a missfire, find out what cylinder if missfiring and replace the sparkplug, wire, or coil, you can have the wire loaded to see if its the spark plug or not, and then get the coil tested as well, this will say you money inthe long run since replacing random parts if a waste of money on your part. test it and find the failing part and replace...

Random missfires in 1 and 2 cylinder and the engine gets really rough between 2000 and 2500


Sounds like you have an EGR passage blockage problem. It would cause random misfires from being too lean, in a few cylinders, that are getting too much EGR gasses and the EGR valve just happens to open at appx. 2000-2500 rpms. Have it inspected.

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.

2001 Kia Magentis engine missfiring , installed


check new spark plugs for proper gap.
It may have gotten hit when installing it.check coils second for resistance/firing. sometimes one bank will work fine and the other side will misfire-always replace all together or as a unit. Check
engine for compression if problem pre existed
and check for low compression. if 1 cylinder
has 120 psi and two havepsi below 90 you may have
a cracked head or bad head gasket.

1996 VW Passat - Random cylinder miss fire, worse


Pop the heed, see the air box on the very left? On top of that box is the Ignition Control Unit. Little black square w/ winds about 1/2"
thick....

That is the problem. Or Your MAF sensor...
I don't know how to chech the Ignition Control Unit with out the proper tester.

But the MAF is located directly below in side the box.
If you POP off the large hose that comes out of the front of the air box. You can see the MAF, spreay it some contact cleaner for electronics not BREAK CLEANER>>>>>>.
