1999 jeepn wrangler 4 cyl 5 speed rough idle


rough idle is from faulty injectors or maf/vaf sensors or vacuum leaks
run the fault codes to determine the fault area

Rough idle and lost of power


is the CEL glowing key on,, and go off running
i bet not, but if you scan this PCM, with any scan tool.
it will show all the DTC errors. post them.
like P030x.
x = cyl, misfire. and if 0 is all cyl.
misfire always causes lost power.
ever do the 60k tuneup? if not do so.
diagnosis repairs cost way more than any tuneup.

What will cause a Misfire on number 4 cyl and intermittant misfire on 3cyl on a v70 2.4 liter volvo


Hi Eyeman, Have the vehicle diagnostically scanned. You will probably discover you have two or more defective coils. Intermittent problems with the knock sensor, the crankshaft and camshaft sensors can also be reasons, but not common for the described faults. Lastly the ECU, but very unlikely. regards John

Po300 code multi cyl misfire any sugg


The code you got may not have indicated the correct coil, that was bad

I would put the old coil back in #6 & either walk the new coil to another cylinder, or get professonal help in the form of a scan tool in Mode $06,
if applicable on your vehicle & check for misfires that why

Forget the PO300

2003 lincoln ls v8 has misfire code p0316 wat coil # is it to get it replaced


PO 316 -- is a misfire on the first 1000 revolutions

You get that & sometime a lot of other codes you ignore

You may or may not have PO301 thru PO308 codes
The last # is the cylinder

1,2,3,4 Pass Side
5,6,7,8, Driver Side

Front to back

All you can do is buy one new coil and try it in
a cyl with a code or you may have to walk the
new coil from one cyl to the next and drive few
days in between.

The other choice is a repair shop with an oscilloscope
and the inductive coil pick up adapter

CEL light flashing-shuddering when idle. 03 passat 1.8 Turbo. Thinking its an air leak somewhere? Can hear air but can't figure out where its coming from...


A flashing cel indicates misfiring. A common problem is a bad ignition coil. The easiest route for diagnosis is the check the trouble codes(autozone and some other parts stores will scan for free, or an OBDII code reader is not too expensive to buy). The code should tell you which cylinder is misfiring(PO301 means cyl #1, 302 cyl #2, etc). Once you know which it is, swap the ignition coils around. If you have a #1 misfire, swap coils 1 and 4, clear the codes, then check it again. If the misfire moves, you know you've got a bad coil. If the misfire is air or fuel related, as with an intake leak, other codes should come up as well as the misfire.

2004 Ford Escape with 3.0L V6. misfire with flashing "check engine" light. Codes retrieved are P0316 and P0304


P0316 = engine misfire
P0304 = #4 cyl
A very common problem is a bad COP or coil. They can be expensive ($75? at part store), so you could try switching the coil with another cylinder and see if the code changes location with the coil.
They are easy to replace. Unplug the connector. Remove the one screw (8mm?). Pull straight out.

2004 Ford Escape 3.0 V6 - I had the spark plugs replaced when first experienced misfiring, and code said misfire on #4 cylinder. Right after replacement, things were fine. About a month later, starting...


If you had a scan tool you would be able to see the cylinder misfiring, i would try replacing the coil boots on the coil, there like replacing sparkplug wires but there small boots that pop on the end of coil with steel spring inside them, run truck and if misfire continues then you have a coil thats going bad,hope this helps. note if you could find out which cylinder it was you could swap coil with another cylinder and if skip move to that cylinder then you would know if its a coil this is after replacing boots.

Looking for cylinder diagram/location on 2001 Ford Escape 6 cyl


here's the scoop. There is a TSB that addresses this issue.
First, replace the spark plugs.
Next, replace all 6 COPS, coil on plug. You have to because they feed back into the PCM, Powertrain Control Module and blow the drivers. Then you need to replace the PCM.

This was for 2004-06, but it might apply to yours if it's a 3.0L.

Misfire DTC codes identify which cylinder is misfiring.

Misfire Detection Monitor The Misfire Detection Monitor is an on-board strategy designed to monitor engine misfire and identify the specific cylinder in which the misfire has occurred. Misfire is defined as lack of combustion in a cylinder due to absence of spark, poor fuel metering, poor compression, or any other cause. The Misfire Detection Monitor will be enabled only when certain base engine conditions are first satisfied. Input from the ECT or CHT, MAF and CKP sensors is required to enable the monitor. The Misfire Detection Monitor is also performed during on demand self-test.
  1. The PCM synchronized ignition spark is based on information received from the CKP sensor. The CKP signal generated is also the main input used in determining cylinder misfire.
  1. The input signal generated by the CKP sensor is derived by sensing the passage of teeth from the crankshaft position wheel mounted on the end of the crankshaft.
  1. The input signal to the PCM is then used to calculate the time between CKP edges and also crankshaft rotational velocity and acceleration. By comparing the accelerations of each cylinder event, the power loss of each cylinder is determined. When the power loss of a particular cylinder is sufficiently less than a calibrated value and other criteria is met, then the suspect cylinder is determined to have misfired.
  1. Misfire type A:

    Upon detection of a Misfire type A (200 revolutions) which would cause catalyst damage, the MIL will blink once per second during the actual misfire, and a DTC will be stored.

    Misfire type B:

    Upon detection of a Misfire type B (1000 revolutions) which will exceed the emissions threshold or cause a vehicle to fail an inspection and maintenance tailpipe emissions test, the MIL will illuminate and a DTC will be stored.

    The DTC associated with multiple cylinder misfire for a Type A or Type B misfire is DTC P0300.

    The DTCs associated with an individual cylinder misfire for a Type A or Type B misfire are DTCs P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306, P0307, P0308, P0309 and P0310.
