2001 Blazer rough idle and misfire cylinder 2 code


misfire codes are most often generated by faulty injectors and not what you have replaced
the misfire can be from blocked injector tip, failing injector wiring/signal and low fuel pressure
move the injector for 2 to another cylinder and see if the code moves as well to the next cylinder ( replace injector)
if not check wiring or ECM for problems

Could be a bad cam or crank sensor. But before you go to electronics, ck the plugs, wires & coil or coils (whichever coil system you have) Start with the plugs

I have a 2002mercury sable, idles rough but runs good when acceleration. I changed fuel filter,plugs, plug wires, coil, still idles rough.Autozone had three codes, P0316, P1151, P1131. What should I do...


P0316 crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position sensor, or a wiring issue. Since this code indicates a start up misfire, pay attention to items which may expand or contract when cold (if the code sets when the engine is cold), or hot (if the code sets on a hot restart).

If you have other misfire codes that pertain to individual cylinders, you should attend to them first P1151 has a huge list of things that it can be, But included in that list is the camshaft position sensor , po1131 is the same thing, all building up to your car is running lean , so I'd do the sensor (cam) and check timing,,

I have a 2001 Ford Escort. It was idling rough and starting to cut out when sitting at stop lights. I changed the plugs and within a week the Check Engine light came on. It is still idling rough but not...


Well the misfire in Cylinder 3 will commonly be that your plug has gone bad. If that is the only code that it is throwing out then it could be an array of things going on. It sounds though that you may have a throttle position sensor out or that you have your idle speed set too low. You will still have great response when gas is applied but sitting at lights the idle will be rough and sometimes bounce up and down.
