Hello, my vehicle upon startup (recently) has been generating code P0201-Injector Circuit Open - Cylinder 1/ P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire.

To troubleshoot, we replaced all spark plugs, and the coil pack (on cylinder 1). The codes were reset, but came back on after driving (once engine got warm). Could the injector itself be bad? Thanks

Hello,

Yes it could be. A fuel injector is nothing but a simple on/off solenoid. It has electrical parts in it that could very well develop an open in the circuit and quite working. This would also cause Direct Trouble Code (DTC) P0301 to set as well. If you are going to replace the fuel injector, I would recommend purchasing a fuel injector of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) quality or better, and not a cheap Chinese injector of Ebay for $10.00. These knockoff fuel injectors that have flooded the market are cheaply made, notoriously unreliable, and, in fact, can cause major engine damage, should they fail at the right time. Please keep us informed as to how everything is progressing.

Thanks,
Alex
