Also there is a 3 piece vacuum hose connection that goes from pcv valve to intake manifold,the last segment going towards intake manifold, oil vapors break down rubber propedties and that hose collapses and starves the enginse vacuum, and wont throw a code. Then last week my fuel pump died. When your had the problem, did you hear a small ticking before it occured from the engine? I have never had this many codes. So I change the coil pack and the 3 sparkplug.
What I should be looking for? Had to rent a tool and will do that in morning. Have a done a bunch of diagnostics including a new timing belt to no avail. Any help would be great. Finally, I changed the timing belt to no avail. I thouht I might of good a bad pack. But if you stop and try to start again, no joy unless playing with gas pedal.
When you start the car cold the computer uses what is basically a preset table of numbers to decide upon fuel delivery. Please advise on what I should look into to get this issue fixed. In the time that I had it repaired and it came back on maybe a month and a half ago I only drove the truck maybe 3000 miles, if that. Always comes back to the same thing. Any advice on diagnosing the issue, or what the cause could be? My assumption was that one of the injectors was sticking open in the cold. Things I have done, all with no change: 1 Checked for Vacuum Leaks 2 Replaced all the spark plugs 3 Moved all the coil packs from one side to the other 4 Replaced the Cam position Sensors 5 Moved all the injectors from one side to the other 6 Inspected as best I could the variable cam timing system under the valve covers.
I have a 2001 Escape 3. This is less easy, but not that big a deal - one could swap the 5 injector with another one and see if the misfire code moves to that cylinder. It literally takes less than 2 minutes. I put in new spark plugs 3 days ago, ran great until 2day.

When this code appears, a misfire has been detected on startup during the first 1,000 revolutions.
I had a coupon and could get a price from them so that is why they won my business. For money reasons, if I can wait to replace the converter, that would help. I havent changed the sparkplug wires or sparkplugs yet. Some Ford vehicles even needed a new cylinder head as a result of the valve. Remove the one screw 8mm? Clear the codes and wait for the codes to return. I am very capable of changing the plugs but am finding it hard to think after 45k they are bad but stranger things have happened.
Anyway, I suspect fuel vent hose or valve on top of fuel tank since my options are limited now. Drove it home and searched what codes mean. But that doesn't explain the ruff idle, or fould plugs. I have no idea where to go from here. Posted on Feb 01, 2012 The P0300 is a general misfire code, and can be a result of numerous things. I did notice on the cylinder 1 spark plug that there was a little oil at the bottom of the plug when it was removed.
The check engine light started flashing but it's on continuously. I may go ahead and replace the plug wires since the current ones are high mileage and it is not an expensive fix. Hope someone has a fix for this. I have P0303 and P0316 codes. No, I do not hear any rattles, nothing at all. I first notice a surge or a miss while driving at highway speeds with the cruise on. They said needed engine work, but said they didn't know where the bad valve was so i don't even know how the made the determination.
I installed a new belt and all the rollers + tensioner. I have had the engine light flicker a couple of times when I step on it merging into traffic but not consistant. Missfire detected P0305 random multiple Missfire detected cylinder 5 misfire P0306 cylinder 6 Missfire P0316 Missfire detected on start up first 1000 revolution A couple of weeks ago I got a check engine light.
