Question about Ford Freestar
Hi, P0316 code means that the PCM has detected a misfire in the first 1000 engine revolutions, upon start-up (to light of a miss to set a cylinder code) The most common thing on these engines are the COP (coil on plug) ignition coil packs which have a high failure rate!!!
To properly diagnose this type of misfire you will need a professional type scan tool eg; Snap-on Modis,solus etc. (not a code reader) and on the ford you need to go into mode 6 data so you can actually see # of misfire counts to get an accurate diagnosis!!! If it was a airbag code it would be a (B****) series code and the airbag lamp would be on or flashing!
Likely Cause of P0316 - Misfire Occurred in the First 1,000 Engine Revolutions
