ALSO, HAVE A COMPRESSION TEST PERFORMED TO CHECK FOR VALVE PROBLEM. SCANNER WILL SHOW CYL. MISFIRE.
AS THIS CODE INDICATES RANDOM MISFIRE,SCANNER WILL SHOW HISTORY OF MISFIRES ON EACH CYL.
THAT IS A PROFESSIONAL SCANNER, NOT JUST A CODE READER!
Another possibility is lean running condition caused by lowered fuel pressure. Check fuel injectors to make sure they are not excessively dirty or plugging up. Could also be some water in the fuel tank.
Had a similar problem. Took it to a mechanic and they changed spark plugs , but I was still getting the code and engine light would not go off. Finally took it to the dealer and they found that a small woodland creature (a mouse) had somehow gotten under my hood and was living in one of the compartments, had chewed on the fuel injecter, and left evidence of his existence on the fuel harness. Make sure your mechanic really looks good under the hood and not just a perfunctory peek.
