My car is sputtering and somewhat joilting. It also idles REALLY hard upon first start up.
It is throwing a p1300 code. Ignition/misfire
MAF was just replaced after it threw a code for it, so that problem is cleared up.
No smoke coming from exhaust.
Wierd thing is that after the car has been driving for a while and the engine is really warm, the problem near disappears.
You can hear it misfiring by listening. We changed spark plugs about 3 wks ago. Only thing I did was I DID wash the engine bay out. But someone said if their was moisture from that in the plugs that it would have evaporated by now.
Going to do a compression test asap.
I heard coil packs rarely go out.
Ive checked 2 of the 3 plug wires and tehy are good.
And Im a female but trying to do this by myself.
have the same problem?
