Answers :

No. The ignition coils most of the time when you get a misfire, are not the problem. Most of the time it is the plugs, or wires. Usually when a coil goes out then it is out. Or will quit firing when the engine is warm. Then fire again when the engine cools off. Make sure that your plug wires are all seated good. A misfire is not a huge deal. It won't hurt the engine what so ever to misfire a cylinder every once in a while. So it is very safe to drive the Rodeo to work.

Two-fold problem: (1) Check engine light would come on when I was low on fuel. After refueling, it would go away. Eventually it came on and stayed on so I took it to the shop. They said it needed an emission vapor canister. However, after that day the check engine light didn't come on for months so I didn't get the canister. Eventually check engine came back on, I took the car in and got the new vapor canister ($350). Three weeks later the check engine light was back on when I was low on

My check engine light came on. I had it checked with a scanner. I was told the code came up that it was the gas cap is not sealing and to buy a new gas cap. I did. The check engine light came back on two weeks later. Had it checked again and was told the same thing. I then asked a friend who is a mechanic, he said the problem was thr fuel purging sensor in the gas tank. To fix it I had to remove the fuel tank, or the just ignore the check engine light.


Best not to ignore the check engine light because it also can indicate a serious running problem just as it is indicating a pollution problem now. I don't trust folks that have 'snap' answers for a given problem without any kind of testing (the fuel ... 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier

I have had a Check Engine Light on my dash for a good 3 weeks. I noticed the Van running really ruff. I took the van to autozone and got the codes ran. The code of P0303 (cylinder 3 misfire) came back originally so I changed the plugs and it fixed the problem. About 1 week later I got a check Engine light again. 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

I have a 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8S and the engine light came on and indicated a misfire #2 cylinder (Auto Zone check). I took it to the dealership I purchased it from new. They insisted on replacing my spark plugs with NGK ones ($11.00 each), drove my car, and said the engine light was off and car was fixed. I asked them to do a diagnostic test but never got an electronic printout. Two weeks later the engine light came on again and the same problem coded at Auto Zone. Took the car back for them


Yes, I have a solution - an immediate recall or, failing that, a class-action suit. I leased a 2005 1.8L Sentra new from the dealership. It came with a 5-year/100,000K "bumper to bumper warranty." Today - April 2010 - it has just under 66,000Kms. on ... 2005 Nissan Sentra

Can you drive a car with a third cylinder misfire? I'm driving to NYC from Pittsburgh PA and my check engine light came on for the 3rd cylinder misfire...I already had the tune up already and they replaced the spark plugs and wires, but the light came back on about 3 weeks later as the same thing. I don't have time to have it fixed now, so I have to drive it with the engine light on and just want to make sure it's ok to drive it 6 hours to and 6 hours from NYC. A mechanic said it was ok, but I

2005 Honda Accord LX. Engine light came on about a week ago. Read the manual. Said to check gas cap. Did that, but the light turned off sometime before I checked the gas cap. A week later and the light is back on. Any advice?


Could be a # of things. Instead of randomly guessing-take the thing into the shop and have them hook the computer up to it to look for the trouble code. \302\240Then you can go from there to see if you want to fix the thing or if you want them to tur ... 2005 Honda Accord

My 2004 Santa Fe had he check engine light come on several times in the past week. It started to run rough, like it was going to stall, then the check engine light came on. I took it to a mechanic. First, the code was for the wires, which were replaced. Later that day, after it was fixed, it started doing the same thing and the check engine light came on again. Then the mechanic said it was for the engine coils, which were both replaced. 2 days later, the car stalled on me and the check engi

1997 Toyota rav4 Had serpentine belt and timing belt changed and all gaskets on engine, was hit on left driver side front fender on the way home and my check engine light came on. I'm told the hit didn't cause the light to come on. Flush was done on the egr system and vacuum modulator replaced. Light came back on a couple days later. Mechanic can't figure out what is wrong, light was off for a couple of weeks and just came back on.


If its the same code it should be fairly easy to see if the EGR valve is functioning correctly. Its vacuum operated so with the engine running you can apply vacuum to the solenoid and expect the engine to run extremely bad if not stall. If it does th ... 1997 Toyota RAV4

My 'service engine soon' light came on, then went off a couple of weeks later. It came back on and I had it scanned by a mechanic. The p0128 code came up. He reset the onboard computer and it went off but it came back on again shortly. He said it would be at least $500 to replace the engine coolant thermostat. He also asked if the heat worked in the car and I said it works great. I have no problems. The temp gauge seems to be working fine as well. I called Saturn and the repair dept said this co

Always had a problem with 2006 grand prix GXP 5.3L V8 "using" lots of oil. This weekend check engine light came on, tech told me it was an oil pressure error.

Tech said its either the oil pressure sensor or the oil pump. Engine is NOT knocking or sounding like its about to break down...how do i know what the problem is? I can't afford to fix both...
