Check the cylinder number 1, it should be the one that is on side where the timing belt is. I would say check the spark plug cuz it might be bad and not sparking and causes a misfire. If you got any other questions please feel free. Good luck

WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF THE PO301 CODE?


The error code p0301 ,This code is related to misfire.The cylinder is misfiring. p0301 this is the indication of cylinder number 1 ,that is misfiring.If the code comes up as p0300 this is the indication of random misfire from all the cylinders.But in your case its indicating p0301 this is indication of cylinder 1 misfire.Check cylinder 1 and replace the faulty cylinder 1 to clear the fault.The spark plugs and the wires connecting to spark plugs also needs to be checked. Keep updated with any more query.Thanks.

I would check out the EGR valve. That maybe what is causing all the misfires.

Code scan: P0301 Cylinder 1 misfire detected


Code P0301 is a generic OBD Code for Misfire. It also indicates you have a misfire in the #1 Cylinder. I would start by checking the plug wire to make sure its clean and on all the way (at the coil as well). Then if that doesnt help I would pull the plug out and check the condition of the spark plug. hopefully this will give you some direction. Thanks for Using FixYa!

Sincerely,

OBD 2 code showing 301


P0300, P0301, and P0302 are all misfire codes (cylinders #1 and #2, and a multiple/random misfire). The only time I've heard of this being related to a crank sensor is if the sensor were loose. Furthermore, a crank sensor issue should affect all cylinders equally. So I'd expect you'd have the P0300 only, or all the codes you have plus P0303 and P0304 (and P0305 and P0306 if a V6).

You should continue checking your secondary ignition system. Presuming the wires and plugs made no difference in the codes or condition, check the coil. You'll want to do your checking when the problem is occurring. Perhaps even mist the wires and coil with water to see if you can see a spark jumping. If you do indeed see a spark jumping, that is the location of your problem.

Another strategy you can use is to take the #1 and #2 plug wires (if accessible) off the plugs and just set them back in place without clipping back onto the plugs. Then, start the car, and gradually pull the wire(s) off the plug(s). The spark should come out of the end of the wire onto the plug. If it comes out of the coil or the side of the wire, then the problem is in the location of the spark.

If you're unable to find a secondary ignition problem, then you should begin investigating whether you have a fuel delivery or internal engine problem causing the misfire. Most engine issues will show up with a compression test. If you indeed are only misfiring on cylinders 1 and 2, you can swap those injectors with the others to see if the misfire follows the injectors.
