Misfire at 5. P305 code. Spark plugs were changed 20k miles ago so I figured it was not this. It was the ignition coil. $337 at the nissan dealership.
Engine started misfireing bad. Scanned the motor and had multiple misfires. Cleared the codes and rescanned engine while driving. Cylinder 1 misfire. Changed the plugs and found cylinder one plug was bad. Move cylinder 1 coil to cylinder 4 to see if the code would move in case of a bad coil. Yep. Code moved to cylinder 4.
numerous problems: engine coil misfired (I paid for that). The car jumps in drive and reverse, I later found out I had a mixture of coolant fluid with transmission fluid. I have had the vehicle for 7 months. Single mom with children and grand-children transported in the vehicle. THE DEALERSHIP, WELL THEY GOT ME !!!
