A misfire could be a sign of a problem coming up. You might not notice anything major until the cylinder stops working all together. However, other that it sounding terrible, and a loss of power and some shaking effects, it's not terrible.
In other words, if it happens, it's time to get it to a shop now, instead of later.
Yet, it all depends on why it's misfiring. If there is coolant leaking into the engine cylinder, it's a much larger problem. I would suggest taking it to another shop for a second opinion. Sometimes it's just a simple fix.

Engine lite on--code 304--also reader says-- cylinder 4 misfire--multiple


misfires can be from the ignition circuit ( coil/s HT leads -plugs) and it can also be from injectors (low fuel pressure -faulty injectors - leaking injector washers --wiring to injectors).

Got a check engine light? Get the codes read to find out if the misfires are on all cylinders or just 1. Could be ign coil, bad crank or cam sensor, or a valve issue

    Press the button located in the center of the instrument cluster ONCE. The display should now read "OIL LIFE" instead of vehicleicon1.png mileage.

    2006 Saturn ion 2 won't start.


    You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
    - Spark
    - Fuel
    - Compression

    All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

    Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

    Gas gauge shows low fuel but there is plenty of fuel


    Hi.
    3 options.
    1.The electrical coupler to the Fuel tank may have got corroded, creating a power "shunt".
    2. The tank level foat, with has a rheostat on it has failed.
    3. The tank Level Float has perforated, and the inducted fuel has made it "sink", giving a false reading in all cases.

    2005 saturn ion 141k miles on it. when you start car it runs real rough, put on a code reader and it read miss fires all cylinders.


    Try this; get the car in an area that is as dark as possible, open the hood and let it idle. Allowing several minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark, look for any sparks around the ignition wiring. My Saturn (now junked-too many problems) needed all plug wires replaced in under 3 years.

    I need to know if i need to change spark plugs


    Depends. How many miles are on the car? Is it idling or running rough? Are you getting poor gas mileage? Is your check engine light on? If so, take it to Autozone and ask them to plug their code reader into your car. They can tell you if you've got a mis-fire. If you do, then sure, go ahead and change the plugs. Make sure you gap them to the correct specification and torque to the correct spec.

    You could also take one of the plugs out and look at the tip. If it has a light-brown color to it and isn't covered in oil or looks burnt or black, then that plug is fine.

    04 Pontiac Vibe bad gas mileage without a code and then the p0420


    that code is from having the plugs wires reversed as you did and the o2 senors regrsitered the overload on gas emmions once you remove the battery cables for about 5 minutes and then recconect and run the engine it should be okay
