Hello Keith and welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this. Feel free to ask if further info is needed.

My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.

Was the compression pressure checked on all cylinders?
Do you have a manual or auto transmission? if manual, was the flywheel replaced with a low weight performance flywheel?
Was the timing belt and tensioner checked (too loose, too tight, or even jumped a few teeth)?
Apart from the fault codes, what symptoms are you experiencing with the vehicle?

Kindly get back to me on these, so we proceed as necessary

Regards,
Billy

Hi Billy

Thanks for your reply

Compression test has not yet been performed as I feel the car pulls to good... runs fine.. in fact there or no symptoms... driving just can't keep check engine light off...

Sometimes I car drive the car for 115 miles before the light comes on

other times its on after 30 miles

O the car is automatic with new ATF fuild (millers)

Timing belt done 30.000 miles ago.. by last owner so I'm unsure what has been replaced

possible just belt

Hope this information helps

Best Regards

Keith

Hello Keith,

Any additional details and info always help....

I would start by checking for compression pressure, and for any mild vacuum leaks (as most of the other checks are already done).

To give you an idea on the system:
A misfire is detected by monitoring the angular acceleration and speed of the crank and cam sensors. Whenever there is more acceleration or decceleration than permitted, the misfire code is triggered. The system also monitors at which exact moment this is happening to identify which cylinder is misfiring.

So it does not have to be an actual misfire event. Any irregularity with the engine rotation will cause this.

Kindly get back to me with your findings, or if further info is needed, so we proceed accordingly.

Regards,
Billy
