Hi, Fran, I hope you are doing well. I'm really sorry to hear that you are having misfire issue with your fiat after spending so much money and i totally understand how frustrating this can be. Have the fuel injectors been tested?
ok, so the codes suggest the engine computer is detecting a misfire on cylinder 2 . A misfire is where the fuel and air mixture within the cylinder is not igniting correctly. Now, this can happen for a few reasons from fuel, spark, or compression problems. we can rule out the compression because the issue would be there all the time at all speeds. the ignition system that supplies the spark has already been replaced so the next logical step would be to at least swap the injector from cylinder two and see if the misfire follows the injector confirming its a fault before spending more money on parts that are not required
The average cost for the part is around £120 plus around £50 to fit. I'm sorry to tell you its likely that more money is needed to rectify the issue but i hope this helps remove some of the stress
You are very welcome. Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions-I am happy to help!
the stop-start system is turned off as soon as any fault like this is detected because the system doesn't want to turn the engine off if its unsure it will be able to restart
