What does a P0316 mean on Ford freestar

P0316 means misfire on the first 1,000 revolution, this is not a random misfire,or a steady misfire, it just means it there Ford has recently moved the misfire from 14000. to 1,000. It can mean the crank and cam synchonizer, a worn COP (coil on plug) COP would give a steady and exact misfire. the cranksensor itself or the harness.

P0316 will be set if any misfires occur during the first 1,000 engine rpms (about the 1st minute of operation). you could have a bad coil on that cylinder. check the coils out or replace them.

2003 Ford Ranger 4x4 extended cab- diagnostics checked and got these codes- P0171, P0174, P0300, P0316. Can you tell me what they mean?

P0171------ system too lean bank#1
Po174------ system too lean bank#2
For these 2 codes, try cleaning the maf sensor (mass air flow), that is mounted in the big black hose that goes from the air filter housing to the throttle plate, if it is dirty, that will cause those 02 sensors to send a signal to the computor to lean the air fuel mixture. If cleaning it doesn't work, the sensors will probably need changing.
P0300---- Random/multiple cylinder misfire
P0316---- Cylinder misfire at start up---- first 100 revolutions.
On those 2 codes, you have to do some testing to find out why there is a misfire.
Possible causes:
dirty/malfunctioning injectors
weak coil pack
fowling spark plugs/wires
Low fuel pressure
