Question Asked: ignition problem-coil on plug ignition type
March 08, 2010, 01:26 PM
car started missing more and more over ashort period of time. with 52000 miles i suspected spark plugs so i replaced them. The problem remained and a scan showed p0304(misfire at cylinder #4). I took the coil from #4 and switched with #2 and the code changed but engine was still missing. Does this sound like a coil assembly and wondering possible causes. Please advise.

Check your battery terminals or replace them if not already. Something may be slowly draining the charging system.

Go to the autozone near you and you can rent a brake caliber removel kit for free. This makes removal a snap.

You could also try lubricating the latch with WD40 and try working it loose. If that doesn't work take Superbob's advise.

Any parts store will be able to tell you your options and at least your dealing with this now instead of the middle of the winter

You would need a hex only if the bolt is recessed. Its most likely metric but test both or check your manual it will state which one and guide you through the repair.

Maybe there was water or impurities in the fuel you got that day. Have the fuel tank drained or at least use an additive and don't fill up at that station anymore.

Just use water to test the tank for leaks- the light should only come on after the fluid is below the check line.

There can be several reasons why this happens that is why it is vital that you have your engine light scanned to determine the specific code.

Try using a penetrating fluid to work into the bolt. Then, using a socket ratchet, tap the end of the ratchet with a hammer and "dink" it loose. Also make sure your turning the right way because it will be in reverse if the bolt is behind the caliper facing out.
