Question about Lincoln LS

Since the car ran in fail safe mode I have been having misfiring problems. Could there be a link? The misfiring has only happened on add number cylinders. What cylinders are disabled during fail safe mode?

Keep diagnosing the cylinder misfire issues

Need professional scan tool software, to use Mode $06,
& look at other data, as your not going to get a perfect
fault code every time & just replace a failed part

There are times when professional tools won't work & you
have to walk a new coil or use a scope on a road test & that
could take months before the coil goes down

How about the spark plugs ?

Range rove 2004 is in engine failsafe mode is not starting?

You need an owners manual or access to factory
manuals to find out how many fail safes your vehicle has

Example: Electronic Throttle Control
Engine Over Temp
Transmission Failsafe
Misfire Fail safe to protect converter

Once you have checked for codes which I assume you have
done long ago,you use them as well as trouble charts to
diagnose things

My 1998 beetle is stuck in 3rd gear. the engine and coolant light is on any suggestions?

This just happened to me. I drove the beetle in the snow and slid up to a stop sign. The slide engaged the anti-lock brakes. After that, the car was sluggish starting out and would not shift into 4th gear.
Turns out, the transmission was stuck in 3rd gear. If you can believe it, this is by design! It's a fail safe mode that gets triggered by the wheels spinning out of sync.
According to my mechanic there are wheel speed sensors on each wheel. If the computer senses the wheels moving at different speeds it will drop into fail safe mode. This requires a special scan tool to clear the codes.
Once the codes were cleared, ran like new.

Etc fail safe mode codes p2104 2107 2110 2111 2112

P2107 Throttle Actuator Control Module Processor
P2110 Throttle Actuator Control System - Forced Limited RPM

Seems like Throttle Actuator is the problem.

Good luck on this repair.

Misfire on #3

Re: 2000 Volvo S40 L4 1.9 Liter L4 1.9 Liter Turbo FI

Are you consider yourself a handy person?

Swap the coil and see is the misfire going to follow to another bank of cylinder.

You has total of 3 coil in your engine.

Do a detail record map and switch the two coils.

A replacement aftermarket coil is oil $46 w/one year warranty and $55 will get you a life time warrent coil.

Do the swap and see what happen.

A leaky/failing injector can also cause the same problem.

Do a Chevron Techron fuel injector clean ran and highway ran.

Good luck

Enigine fail safe mode

I encountered the same problem, my engine fail safe mode light came on and shut the car down. I took my car to my mechanic and he found the solution to the problem. The car needed a throttle body cleaning and the fuel filter needed to be replaced. After having my truck serviced my mileage increased from 14.6 mpg to 15.4 mpg

Error code p0303 cylinder 3 misfire

po303 is misfire on number 3 cylinder. It could be a bad spark plug or wire, maybe a loose plug wire, could be alot of things. injector problem drop of water in fuel that happened to hit that cylinder. but most likely a plug misfired. I would clear the code and see if it happens again. If so give care a tune up.
