Hi John .
4 cylinder two coil on two plugs and two coil wires on 2 plugs.
Just making sure as need to be sure which engine you have.

You have code P0340 and P0302 is this correct .

two coils on two plugs that's correct codes are correct

Expert:  Greg replied 2 years ago.
Hi John .

Swap No.2 for No. 3 injectors ,
Clear codes test drive and when the check engine light comes back on
recheck for codes and if the fault code changes for P0303 then replace that injector ,
If the codes stays P0302 then do a compression test on all cylinders with all plugs remove and full throttle, with a fully charged battery . ..

Do this then please get back to me .
