through 6. If the ECM is able to determine that a specific cylinder is misfiring, the DTC for that cylinder will set, and the corresponding fuel
injector is disabled. The ECM will re-enable the fuel injector after 4 crankshaft revolutions when the misfire is not current. The ECM will re-enable
the fuel injector after 8 crankshaft revolutions when the misfire is not current, if the vehicle is equipped with a manual transmission.
Conditions for Running the DTC
* DTC P0121, P0122, P0123, P0221, P0222, P0223, P0335, P0336, P0338, or P0461-P0463 is not set.
* The engine speed is between 400-7,000 RPM and steady.
* The evaporative emissions (EVAP) leak detection is not active.
* The delivered torque signal is greater than 5 % at idle.
* The delivered torque signal is between 6-29 % with the transmission in drive.
* The intake air temperature (IAT) is warmer than -30掳C (-22掳F).
* The fuel level is greater than 11 %.
* The ECM is not in fuel cut-off or decel fuel cut-off mode.
* The increase in engine speed is less than 2,500-4,600 RPM/second.
* DTCs P0300 through P0306 run continuously when the above conditions exist for greater than 1,000 engine revolutions. 200 revolutions
after the first failure.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
The ECM detects a crankshaft rotation speed variation indicating a misfire rate sufficient to cause emissions levels to exceed a predetermined value.
P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304, P0305, P0306
The ECM detects a crankshaft rotation speed variation indicating a single cylinder misfire rate sufficient to cause emissions levels to exceed
Action Taken When the DTC Sets
* DTCs P0300-P0306 are Type B DTCs.
* When the MIL is flashing, the injector may be disabled for the misfiring cylinder to protect the catalytic converter.
* Depending on the conditions that set the code, the engine may go into Open Loop.
Conditions for Clearing the DTC
* DTCs P0300-P0306 are Type B DTCs.
* The DTC must pass under the same conditions that were present when the DTC failed.
* A misfire DTC could be caused by an excessive vibration from sources other than the engine. Inspect for the following possible sources:
- A tire or wheel that is out of round or out of balance
- Variable thickness brake rotors
- An unbalanced drive shaft
- Certain rough road conditions
- Transmission operation
- A damaged accessory drive component or belt
* High resistance in the circuits of the injectors may set a misfire DTC without setting an injector DTC. Test the injector circuits of the affected
cylinder(s) for a high resistance if you suspect a condition.
* If the condition is intermittent, observing the scan tool IC Circuit Test and Fuel Injector Circuit Test Status parameters may help isolate the
condition. The circuit test status parameters will change from OK or Not Run to Fault if a condition exists.
