I would do a compression check. They are easy to do. The tool is about $50 at any part store. If you have a harbor freight near by it's only $30.
If that is something you're willing to try let me know and I can talk you through it.

2002 volvo s60 cylinder 3 misfire detected

I have a bad feeling. I own a Volvo SW XC70 and I had to change the timing belt because I didn't want to have to buy a new engine. I changed it at around 150K miles. The belt is a composite and is not a chain (metal), so it can stretch, thus giving you "bad" timing and making it impossible to tune. If you have not checked or changed the belt, try it. It really won't cost that much (depending on where you take it. I went to Volvo. Good luck.

Have a p301, p305 codes (misfires) and p401, Engine runs really rough. 120000 and never changed spark plugs. Could a simple tune up fix this. Also replaced the egr back pressure sensor. What else could...

It is most likely an ignition system problem so starting by replacing the spark plugs and wires ia advisable.

If the problem persists then have the ignition module, and coil packs tested.

Possible problem with the alternator not putting out enough voltage. I had the same problem with my 2002 XC70, putting in a new alternator fixed it. I used a local mechanic who I found on the car talk web-site. Low Cost Volvo parts can be purchased at FCP Groton.

Volvo XC70 I have had several computer errors

Check two items, chassey grounds by battery, transmission and starter. Also, check to make sure the alternator is providing enough voltage, should be around 14 amps. Had a similar problem with my 2002 XC70, replacing the alternator fixed it! I used the Car Talk website to find a good local mechanic vs. the stealer.

2002 kia sedona 3.5l has rough idle replaced plugs wires and coil

this vehicle has coil packs for the ignition correct? have you ran the engine at night with all surrounding lights outs so its really dark. spray a mist of water on the coil packs and spark plug wires to see if you have spark/voltage leaks jumping out from them. sometimes the tiny sparks will be so fine and skinny you can barely see them so it needs to be dark. hope this helps your trouble shooting. a coil pack could have such a fine crack for the voltage to leak from that you cant see it.

Rough to start.

Fold the rear seat cushion forward so you can see the carpet covering the floor board.

Kind of pull up on the carpet area and check to see if you smell gas.

Most common problem we've been seeing is the fuel pump leaking and should be covered by an extended warranty.
