Hi There
I have a 2.0L petrol Auto Nissan X Trail 2003
Has misfire when hot , fault of timing chain sensor came up on computer which we changed but fault still there?
any suggestions?
Hi James .

Misfire when hot is normally a bad coil . the coil will short out when hot .

You need to check which cylinders are misfiring .

After fitting a new sensors did you clear the codes

Did you recheck for codes and find any other codes .

Basic checks to be done for misfire.

Spark Plugs .
Fuel pressure
Coil / coil boots
Cylinder compression test .

This engine has 4 coils and on each coil is a plug boot these boots are known to short out and cause misfires.
Pull the coils and also check for engine oil as the plug seals are known to leak oil into the plug holes and cause misfires .

Timing was the timing checked ,

Recheck for codes then get back to me if you need further assistance with this issue But please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.

Kind regards Greg.
