Hi,

My car is due for inspection in PA.
I get codes P0300, P0302 and P0303.
Showing misfires.
I will replace spark plugs and coil packs for #2 and #3 cylinders.
I did the other plugs and coil packs for other cylinders.
Luckily the plugs have been replaced before, so the plugs are 1 piece and not the dreaded original 2-piece that had possibility of breaking off in cylinder.
Could there be other causes for these CEL codes?

Thanks!

Hello,

The most common causes for misfire on these 5.4 3V engines are spark plugs and coils.

A few other causes can be injector malfunction and intake air leaks.
