Hi.depending on what year your nissan is,the obd1 plug(on some '96 and under vehicle's) is located in the fuse box, right next to the fuses.(it's a gray plug)If your nissan is a '96 or newer, the obdII connector is located under the dash on the driver's side,right where your leg's would go underneath the bottom of the dashboard underneath the steering column.(white plug)
Good luck!!! If you want any additional help,i can try to guide you since i am a mechanic @ local nissan dealer and can look up info for you...i don't know what kind of scanner you have,but it may not work on your vehicle,if it has CAN.you probably don't know what this is-just letting you know.not all scanners are accurate....john from N.Y.

Replace coil packs on the ford explorer 2006


What codes P0304 & P0308 ? This just means the PCM detected a misfire on those cylinders .an could be a few different things !
What ignition type does your vehicle have coil on plug or a coil pack with 8 plug wire towers ? If you have coil on plug ignition there are two wires going to the coils , one has battery + an the other is control from PCM . Check power first with volt meter or test light . Or use a spark tester on those two cylinders . No Spark Testing control testing

Got 2004 dodge stratus misfiring code says p2305 already changed coil and spark plugs and wires still misfiring


Who is doing the parts replacing?

Have you looked at Scan Tool Data & road tested?

Have you actually done any testing, to find a problem
& used the codes to component test

Till you answer that, I will say you need a repair shop

Lots of things cause misfires

Changing spark plugs & a coil or two ,based on a code,
is not doing the required testing to find a problem or the
need for parts just yet

2002ford tausar wont spark injectors for it to start


when the computer sees no ignition spark going to the spark plugs, it shuts down the fuel system. it wont keep sending fuel and injecting it because the cylinders would have too much raw gas accumulating. the gas would end up in the oil. very bad. so first, see if you have spark at a plug wire. if there is, inspect the plugs, if theres not, get a code reader and do things right. dont unplug anything else. read the codes in the memory. write them down. clear the memory. service the codes that indicate loss of ignition first.
this car may have been in LOS (limited operating strategy ) till the plugs fouled. the LOS is caused by system faults that required correction for too long. now, with new plugs, and the memory erased, you can run codes again to see whats at fault when you try to start. if theres no spark sent to the plugs at that point, then the pinpoint test is valid to run for loss of spark. dont forget to change the oil !!! report your findings or discuss it with your tech at the ford dealer. so many erroneous tests, codes and confusers may come up that he runs your vin and finds tsb info you may need to clear this up.
after the memory has been cleared you could have fewer codes, one code or no codes. now put a test light on an injector to verify pcm signals are going to the injectors. dont replace parts that dont fail pinpoint tests

I have a toyota corolla 2003 and it did not pass the emission test due to a sensor with code P0175


so get it fixed? no engine size posted. so ???? impossible to be accurate.
or DIY, you have tools? and skills. to do that.
it means the Oxygen sensor has issues.
means bank 2 is stuck rich
bank 2 means car is V6. bank 2 means bank with #2 cylinder loc.

for much better, reasons and test. see here

http://www.scantool.net/software/alldata-diy-1-month-subscription.html

is this the only DTC code.??? no others, and did you use a scan tool
that can read all Toy codes, like P1xxx ? codes factory codes.
if not you missed the boat.
my wild guess. (i do tests in real world)
bank 2 is rich.
due to what?
1: misfiring, ever do a tune up? see fouled spark plugs bank 2, look.
2: injector leaking.

there are lost of tests, im not going to list them all.
but it takes tools and time.
compression at spec. bank 2?
OIL FOULED SPARK PLUGS, there, oops.
or bad COP on bank 2,

I have a 93 dodge caravan van that wont start it wants to turn over but won't.


For an engine to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine, compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run.
  • Compression - Engine compression caused by crankshaft rotation and pistons moving up and down inside the engine block. If the timing belt or timing chain fails it will cause the camshaft to become out of correlation with the crankshaft or allow the camshaft to stop rotating. Either of these conditions will cause the engine to lose compression and sometimes cause internal engine damage.
  • Fuel Delivery System - The fuel system includes: fuel pump, fuel injectors, pressure regulator, fuel filter and pressure lines. This system is used to supply fuel under pressure to the fuel injection system, the lack of fuel pressure or volume will cause the fuel delivery system to fail and the engine to stall or not start.
  • Ignition Spark Delivery System - The ignition system components include: spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor (if applicable), crankshaft angle sensor, camshaft angle sensor, ignition coil, ignition module, knock sensor and ECM (engine control module). The engine relies on the ignition spark to be delivered to the combustion camber at the correct time. If the ignition spark stops or is delivered at the wrong time the engine will not run or run poorly.
If Your Engine Cranks but Does Not Start Follow this Troubleshooting Guide
Most vehicles operate by the same principle; basic troubleshooting procedures apply to most cars.
  • Step 1: Anytime you have a problem with electronically controlled components such as an engine, transmission, ABS brake, or SRS (supplemental restraint system, Air Bag) inspect all fuses using a test light and check the under hood power distribution center and under dash fuse panels. If all fuses test ok continue to the next step.
  • Step 2: To check for problems with electronically controlled components such as an engine, transmission, ABS brake, or SRS (supplemental restraint system, Air Bag) and the fuses test ok a trouble code scan is needed to identify any system trouble. Use a simple scanner tool to retrieve trouble codes and see if they relate to the specific problem, like a crank angle sensor failure code. If the trouble code present does not pertain to the immediate problem like an EVAP code ignore it until a later time, after the car is running. The reason we repair non-related codes after the engine is running is because sometime false codes can be triggered by the engine not running. Once the engine is running again the code present might cycle and turn itself off. You might say "if the engine doesn't run shouldn't it have a trouble code?" Sometimes conditions occur that will not be detected by the computer, example: if the fuel pump fails the computer cannot detect the failure, so the engine doesn't start and the computer thinks everything is ok with no codes. If no trouble codes are present proceed to the next step.

  • Step 3: The spark plugs in your engine are used to ignite the compressed fuel air mixture. If the condition of the spark plugs are fouled by excessive fuel or carbon the engine will not start, backfire or run rough. Remove all spark plugs to inspect their condition. Please use this spark plug condition reference guide to see how the spark plugs are operating.
  • Step 4: Determine if the engine has compression, this can be done a number of ways but the most complete method is to perform a compression check. Remove the spark plugs and perform a compression test on one cylinder. If one cylinder has compression then the remaining cylinders usually will be close to the same. Crank the engine over about 5 seconds, normal compression readings should be between 125 psi and 160 psi on each cylinder. If no or little compression exists additional tests will be needed. The most common reason for an engine to lose compression is a timing belt or timing chain failure. If low or no compression exists remove the oil fill cap and observe camshaft rotation when the engine is cranked over. If no rotation exists the timing belt or chain has failed. If your engine has a timing belt and you cannot see the camshaft easily remove the upper bolts to the timing cover and gain visual access to the belt, recheck cam rotation by cranking the engine over. Sometimes a timing belt or chain can jump causing the camshaft to lose correlation with the crankshaft and therefore causing low compression. The best test for this condition is to remove the timing belt/chain cover and inspect timing marks. If the compression is ok proceed to next step.
  • Step 5: Test the ignition system output, ignition systems can vary in configuration but operate on the same principal. Ignition systems can consist of a coil, pick up coil, crank angle sensor, cam angle sensor, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, ignition rotor and a distributor and any variations of these components. An ignition coil is a voltage stepper coil that transforms a low voltage (12 volts) signal into tens of thousands of volts needed to jump the gap of the spark plug. This coil is activated by an ignition module triggered by using the camshaft/crankshaft angle sensor; timing is adjusted by the ECM (computer).
    This primary electrical signal is generated by the ECM which calculates spark timing by using a variety of sensors including coolant temperature, mass air flow, and oxygen sensors. To perform a basic ignition output test you must have a test light and follow this ignition system output test video.
    crank_trigger_ignition_system.jpg
    Distributor less Ignition System Configuration
    Some ignition systems have a coil for each spark plug. This is called Direct Ignition (DI) system; there are no plug wires in this system just individually controlled ignition coils. The amount of coils or spark plugs depend on the number of cylinders the engine is designed with, example: four cylinders, six cylinders etc. To perform a basic ignition output test you must have a test light follow this ignition system output test video and substitute the ignition coil for the plug wire (Note: leave the coil trigger wires connected).

    Coil Over Spark Plug
    If the ignition system test is weak or non-existent test the car fuses, both under hood power distribution center and the fuse panel under dash. This test is performed with a test light tool. The test light should illuminate on both sides of the fuse, if not the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced. If the fuses are ok a manufacturer specific repair procedure is required and an online auto repair manual is needed to continue. If the ignition system tests ok proceed to the next step.
