DESCRIPTION

When the engine misfires, high concentrations of hydrocarbon (HC) enter the exhaust gas. High HC concentration levels can cause an increase in exhaust emission levels. Extremely high concentrations of HC can also cause increases in the three-way catalytic converter temperature, which may cause damage to the three-way catalytic converter. To prevent this increase in emissions and to limit the possibility of thermal damage, the ECM monitors the misfire rate. When the temperature of the three-way catalytic converter reaches the point of thermal degradation, the ECM blinks the MIL. To monitor misfires, the ECM uses both the camshaft position sensor and the crankshaft position sensor. The camshaft position sensor is used to identify any misfiring cylinders and the crankshaft position sensor is used to measure variations in the crankshaft rotation speed. Misfires are counted when the crankshaft rotation speed variations exceed predetermined thresholds. If the misfire count exceeds the threshold levels, and could cause emission control system performance deterioration, the ECM illuminates the MIL and sets a DTC.

DTC No. DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P0300

Simultaneous misfiring of several cylinders occurs and one of the following conditions below is detected (2 trip detection logic):


  • High temperature misfire occurs in three-way catalytic converter (MIL blinks when detect immediately)

  • Emission deterioration misfire occurs (MIL illuminates)


  • Open or short in engine wire harness

  • Connector connection

  • Vacuum hose connections

  • Ignition system

  • Fuel injector assembly

  • Fuel pressure

P0301

P0302

P0303

P0304

Misfiring of a specific cylinder occurs and one of the following conditions below is detected (2 trip detection logic):


  • High temperature misfire occurs in three-way catalytic converter (MIL blinks when detect immediately)

  • Emission deterioration misfire occurs (MIL illuminates)

When multiple DTCs for misfiring cylinders are stored, but DTC P0300 is not stored, it indicates that misfires have been detected in different cylinders at different times. DTC P0300 is only stored when several misfiring cylinders are detected at the same time.

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM illuminates the MIL and sets a DTC when the following conditions, which could cause emission control system performance deterioration, is detected (2 trip detection logic).


The ECM flashes the MIL (immediate detection logic) and sets a DTC (2 trip detection logic) when either one of the following conditions, which could cause the three-way catalytic converter damage, is detected.

Tech Tips

If a catalyst damage misfire occurs, the monitor informs the driver by blinking the MIL (1 trip).

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN


  1. Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

  2. Turn the power switch on (IG).

  3. Turn the tester on.

  4. Record the DTC(s) and freeze frame data.

  5. Switch the ECM from normal mode to check mode Click here.

  6. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC operation).

  7. Put the engine in inspection mode (maintenance mode) Click here.

  8. Read the misfire counts of each cylinder, Cylinder #1 Misfire Count to Cylinder #4 Misfire Count, with the engine idling. If any misfire count is displayed, skip the following confirmation driving pattern.

  9. Drive the vehicle several times with the conditions, such as engine speed and engine load, as shown in Misfire RPM and Misfire Load in the freeze frame data.

    Tech Tips

    In order to store misfire DTCs, it is necessary to operate the vehicle for the period of time shown in the table below with the engine speed and engine load the same as Misfire RPM and Misfire Load in the freeze frame data.

    Engine Speed Duration
    Idling 4 minutes or more
    1000 4 minutes and 30 seconds or more
    2000 2 minutes and 30 seconds or more
    3000 1 minute and 30 seconds or more
  10. Check whether misfires have occurred by checking DTCs and freeze frame data.

    Tech Tips

    Do not turn the power switch off until the stored DTCs and freeze frame data have been recorded. When the ECM returns to normal mode (default), the stored DTCs, freeze frame data and other data will be cleared.

  11. Record the DTCs, freeze frame data and misfire counts.

  12. Turn the power switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.

  13. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC operation).

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Tech Tips


  • If any DTCs other than misfire DTCs are output, troubleshoot those DTCs first.

  • Read freeze frame data using the intelligent tester. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can be helpful in determining whether the vehicle was running or stopped, whether the engine was warmed up or not, whether the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, as well as other data recorded at the time of a malfunction.

  • If the misfire does not recur when the vehicle is brought to the workshop, reproduce the conditions stored in the ECM as freeze frame data.

  • If the misfire still cannot be reproduced even though the conditions stored in the ECM as freeze frame data have been reproduced, one of the following factors may be a cause of the problem:


    1. The fuel level is low.

    2. Improper fuel is being used.

    3. The spark plugs are dirty.

  • After finishing repairs, check that no misfires occur in each cylinder (Cylinder No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4).

  • Be sure to confirm that no misfiring cylinder DTCs are stored again by conducting the confirmation driving pattern after the repairs.

  • When one of Short FT #1or Long FT #1 in the freeze frame data is outside the range of +/-20%, the air fuel ratio may be Rich (-20% or less) or Lean (+20% or more).

  • When the Coolant Temp in the freeze frame data is less than 75°C (167°F), the misfire has occurred only while warming up the engine.

  • An extremely imbalanced drive wheel which causes body vibration may cause misfire DTCs to be stored.

      Tech Tips


      • If it is difficult to reproduce misfires for each cylinder, check the Data List item called Misfire Margin. Try to find vehicle driving conditions that lower the Misfire Margin value. Values above 30% are considered normal.

      • If the freeze frame data record of the engine coolant temperature is below 75°C (167°F), it may only be possible to detect the misfire when the engine is cold.
