We have a code of P0301, replaced cylinder one, replaced all four plugs, and replace the head gasket still getting error code and the traction control warning light keeps coming on and the check engine light stays on all the time
My car has 93000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Diagnostic Trouble Code P0301 means that Cylinder No. 1 is misfiring but the causes of that misfiring can be very varied. The fuel injector could simply be dead or there is little cylinder compression due to a burned valve or leaky head gasket. Even though you replaced the head gasket, cylinder compression should still be tested. Test for power to the coil as if there is no power to the coil the supply circuit (including the PCM) has to be diagnosed to find the fault. If there is power to the coil, I would check to see if the fuel injector is functioning and again check compression. You also have to rule out intake vacuum leaks at that cylinder. If you want these steps performed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a misfiring diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this diagnosed and resolved for you.
