Question Asked: Misfire Cyl 1&3
April 09, 2009, 12:12 PM
I have an ’02 with 190,000 miles
The car started misfiring occasionally on takeoffs and under heavy acceleration; it has progressed over time about 3 months (10 miles a day). Now it happens almost always on takeoffs and any time the throttle is more than 1/2 way, yet it will still get up to 70mph without a problem, it just takes a while.
I have multiple engine codes P0300 (Multiple Misfire Detected), P0301 (Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected), P0303 (Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected). I have checked and rechecked the plugs and wires and replaced the ignition coil as well as adding dry gas, premium fuel and injector cleaner (to rule out bad gas). I am out of ideas
I don’t want to take it to Hyundai, the dealerships that I have delta with have been thieves! But that may be my only hope.
Any advice would be helpful

Gets you where you’re going at an affordable price. I’ve had very few problems.
If you need a 25K dollar car…buy one. If you need a ride to work, pick up a Hyundai.
