2002 T-Bird with 17,000 miles. I have owned it about a month.
I had COPs and plugs replaced less than 500 miles ago with two year parts and labor warranty.
No problems for about a week then following problem started:
Engine misses just after start up, missing stops after driving about 30 seconds. No check engine light.
On next start up engine will miss just after start up, missing stops after driving about 30 seconds and Check Engine will illuminate.
I shut engine down and check codes. Will get P0301 code and clear code.
On next start up same process repeats even with engine still warm.
The 30 second missing seems to be on more than one cylinder. For you fly-boys, the missing is reminiscent of a radial aircraft engine starting.
I know that I could have a bad coil on cylinder one BUT my concern is;
Is there a problem other than ignition that results in P0301 codes ??
Can lack of fuel to injector system cause this code ?(low fuel pump pressure)?
Can fuel distribution or pressure to injectors cause this code ??
