Code 303 Cylinder 3 Misfire?


So I was driving my car today and it started to run like crap. The SES light came on and it threw Code 303 Cylinder 3 misfire? What would cause this? I just replaced the plugs about a week ago! Thanks!

I'm guessing a bad COP? Do these go bad often?

It's not real common for them to go bad, but it might have. Do you have a friend that could pop one off thier car and see if it fixes it?

If the COP and injectors are ok, the problem almost has to be internal

I replaced the COP and it's still throwing the code. I guess that leaves me with either a bad injector or internal motor damage? BTW the car has 70K......

i had a similar code before when i got my 4v swap done on my GT. turns out a vaccum leak played a big part in it. check your vaccum lines 1st. another trick is to replace the #3cyl COP with another COP from a diff. cylinder and see if the miss follows the change. if it isnt the COP or the plug, then like you said its probably the injector.
