I then again got the codes ran and this time it came back P0304 (cylinder 4 misfire). I then changed the plugs again, a day later the light came back so I changed the wires. Then a day a

Engine sputtering my 2002 allroad is shaking, like a bad idle, after the car is fairly warmed up. I can usually drive it for about an hour straight before it starts acting up. The CEL is on and I pulled the codes at AutoZone. There were a number of issues. Error codes 355, 300, 491, 492, 421. I swapped out the plugs and one of the coil packs. The codes apparently indicate an open or short circuit, hence the plug and coil. I also have a cylinder misfire due to air/fuel ratio. That indicates t

I have a 1998 F150 and I have some trouble codes that I can not resolve. P0171 and P0174 and I had the system cleaned and it still there. I changed my spark plugs thats when all the problems started. I took it in and they said I had one spark plug loose and they flushed the system but it never fixed the problem. The codes still pop up. I even changed the fuel filter. Still no change.

I have a 1998 Lincoln Navigator... It was showing multiple cylinder misfire on 5 and 6... fixed and is responsive again... But now it pulls code P1401 Aux Emission Control... I need to repair something else I'm guessing its not a cat because no smell... Is this code for the EGR being stuck open?


If it does not run rough or stall then it is not stuck open but either stuck closed or the pipe is clogged or wiring or connections.If it is stuck closed then it should be replaced.Hope this helps.Good luck. ... 1998 Lincoln Navigator
