If you could elaborate a bit more on what was done to the car we could pinpoint the problem right away. However, typically a tune up is plugs, wires, cap, and filter. Given those four changes, I would point my finger at the plugs. Many of times spark plugs do not come pre-gapped. Meaning the distance between the metal and the electrode, white looking ceramic are not measured per spec. If you did not gap the plugs, I would recommend taking them out and adjusting the gap to spec. You can call the dealer and ask them for the recommended spec. I have attached a pic of a spark plug with an arrow indicating how the gap is measured. You will need a feeler gauge to measure the gap and adjust.i have a knock sensor - rltofixya_3.jpg


Without proper gap the engine can/will misfire.

Check engine light P0302


there are such things as new coils bad from the factory.. Engine control computers have been known to go bad as well. Check the connectors from computer to the diagnostic port, make sure they are tight, make sure your engine has no vacuum leaks, and check as electrical connections of battery, coil, ignition module, etc.

Check engine light came on last week. They said it was the heated oxygen sensor. I had it replaced and today the light is on again. The code at Auto Zone is P2096 and P0300. It says P0300/P0301/P0302...


Yes a misfire could cause a false 02 code. As far as why it's misfiring could be a plug and wire issue but hard to say without looking at it

Occasionally the service engine light will appear for my 1999 Nissan Quest. The code associated is 0325 the knock sensor. Here lately the idle is becoming rougher.


the knock sensors on Nissans are a microphone detector,, which causes a bunch of faulty codes,, There is one knock sensor. Check the connector. Sometimes just disconnecting and reconnecting fixes the fault. Otherwise, it is not difficult to replace. It is a round gizmo attached to the block with a bolt through the center, and an electrical connector on the side. Sometimes this will pop up due to a misfire in (normally ) the number one cylinder,, check the plugs and plug wires,, a misfire will set off the sensor and in turn reflect on the code coming up , I'd do a tune up procedure rather than worry about the sensor,, once tuned,, your idle should be better, and the code should clear

Why does my car throw the code P0100 and P0325? I have a 1995 Nissan 240sx. and it has a random misfire once in a while.


Hi,

Often a single issue can trigger multiple diagnostics codes, especially if the circuits are closely related.

Code P0100 = Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit malfunction

The computer has detected an issue with the MAF sensor.

- Verify the MAF sensor wiring is connected and wiring is in good condition
- Unplug and reconnect the MAF harness
- Check that voltage to the MAF sensor is within factory spec


Code P0325 = Knock Sensor # 1 Circuit malfunction

A knock sensor tells the engine computer when one or more of your engine's cylinders are "knocking", that is, exploding the air/fuel mixture in a way that delivers less power and can be damaging to the engine if prolonged. The computer uses this information to tune the engine so that it doesn't knock. If your knock sensor wasn't operating properly, so that it was always indicating a knock, the engine computer's response may have been to change the ignition timing on your engine. Knock sensors generally bolt into or thread into the engine block.

- Check condition of the knock sensor wiring.
- Test the 'Ohms' reading of your Knock Sensor (undo the connector and measure the pins) to ensure it is within spec (ask Nissan for this measurement). If out of spec, replace the knock sensor.

Cheers,

I have a code p0325 knock sensor 1, circuit bank 1 or single sensor problem


A knock sensor tells the engine computer when one or more of your engine's cylinders are "knocking", that is, exploding the air/fuel mixture in a way that delivers less power and can be damaging to the engine if prolonged. The computer uses this information to tune the engine so that it doesn't knock. If your knock sensor wasn't operating properly, so that it was always indicating a knock, the engine computer's response may have been to change the ignition timing on your engine. Knock sensors generally bolt into or thread into the engine block.

This P0325 code may show up intermittently or the Service Engine light may be lit constantly. Other knock sensor related DTC codes include P0330.

Symptoms: You may notice drivability problems including a lack of power and perhaps some hesitation. There may also be other symptoms.

Causes: A code P0325 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
* The knock sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced
* There is a wiring short/fault in the knock sensor circuit

Possible Solutions
* Check the resistance of the knock sensor (compare it to factory specs)
* Check for broken/frayed wires leading to the sensor
* Replace the knock sensor


Test it and tell us news.

1996 not 1997 codes reading p0303; po304;p0325 also need to know what abs light on may mean need new right front driving light left rear tail light thanks


codes 03-40 are misfires on cylinders 3 & 4 and 325 is ur knock sensor if u had bad gas/water in tank or need tune up and those 2 cylinders misfired could set off code for knock sensor or visa versa as to abs light sheck sensor wires for connection and or damage none observed have rescanned and find out if sensor or unit if sensor scan code will tell u which one ur directional usually blinks faster on the side with the bulb out

98 camry engine light on w/misfires & system too lean


take sample of your fuel into clear plastic bottle from fuel line
is there any water present?
this can cause these codes and then not go on storing codes for other bank even though that bank will be missfiring also due to water & P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected being logged
check all connections to coils/leads & wiring connectors
due to miss fire codes for cyl 1,3,5 all on the same bank
also look and check for air leaks on that bank (hose knocked off or splithose)inlet manifold gasket,brake booster etc...
3 injectors being blocked slightly on same bank posible!!!
check wires and signal

was it running like this b4 tune up & repairs?
this is what codes are
P0170 Fuel Trim Malfunction (Bank 1)
P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
P0301 Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected
P0303 Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected
P0305 Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected

the last code is for trans due to misfire/running lean on bank 1 probably a torque problem code

Trouble codes and why


p0325 is the knock sensor
p0301 is misfire on the #1 cylinder
p0582 and p0340 i don't know

check to make sure the oil is full and in good shape ... if it is replace the knock sensor, drive it for 20-30 miles and recheck codes.
