Services Performed
  • Scanned engine codes, found misfire as well as other faults present (P303, P316, P0072, P0578, and P0579). Complaint is runs rough so only misfire diagnosed. P0303 indicates cylinder 3 is offending miss, scan tool data confirms this. Removed the engine and coil covers. Swapped cylinders 1 and 3 and then ran motor. The miss has now moved to 1, condemning the coil. The remaining 6 can also be replaced to prevent future issues. Additional diagnostic time required for codes P0072, P0578 and P0579.
  • Brake noise was heard in the morning from the rear. Plenty of pad material is left at this time (6mm).
  • Remove the engine and coil covers. Remove the oil breather unit. Disconnect the electrical harness and remove fasteners. Replace all eight ignition coils and reassemble. Test drive and verify the repair.
  • Removed and replaced wiper blades. Verified proper operation

  • Inspect/Recharge Battery and diagnose starting and charging system using d-tac tester. Client reports has to jump start – advise
  • Competed Inspection on Tablet
  • Using low amp probe, tested for parasitic draw and found roughly 300 milliamps present (specification is about 50ma). Starting by removing fuses until the amperage drops. Once the amplifier fuse was pulled, dropped to 18ma. Removed the right rear trim panel and disconnect the amplifier and verified the drain is now gone. Customer decided to just remove the fuse permanently as the radio is currently not functioning. Reassembled with the fuse out and verified less than 50ma present with key off.

Services Performed
  • Scanned engine codes, found multiple stored faults. Fuel pressure sensor (P018B, P018C), misfires (P0303,P0304,P0313,P0316), catalyst efficiency (P0420) and engine temperature and cylinder head temperature correlation (P1026). Customer complains of the misfire, this will be diagnosed. Additional codes will require additional time. Started the engine and noticed misfire, scan data identifies as cylinder 3. Noticed what appears to be a new coil on the offending cylinder. Performed ignition component comparison, swapping the coil with 1 and the plug with 2. Started engine and misfire now moves to cylinder 2, condemning the spark plug. They read Ford but may have been replaced at some point. These vehicles have issues with coolant leaking into the combustion chamber. Warmed engine, pressure tested cooling system and let engine cool. Using boroscope, inspected inside the cylinder and no evidence of coolant found. Scan data shows abnormal fuel pressure and cylinder head readings. This will not cause an individual misfire but will continue to illuminate the engine light if not repaired.Additional diagnostic approved. Code P018 diagnosed first. Data shows erratic signal return. Disconnecting the plug causes a 5 volt return open, so reading it's a constant 108.7 psi. Tested for 5 volts and ground, present and steady. Low fuel pressure sensor has an internal defect and requires replacement. Next up is P1026 for the temperature sensors correlation. Data reveals no voltage return from the cylinder head temperature sensor. Disconnected the plug and verified 5 volt reference and ground are present. At operating temperature, typical resistance is 3k ohms. This sensor is reading 78 mega ohms, or 78,000,000. This reading is basically an open circuit. Cylinder head temperature sensor is defective and requires replacement. P0420, catalyst efficiency, is last. Warmed engine to operating temperature and monitored the sensors. The downstream sensor is mirroring the upstream, which indicates the converter is not burning the exhaust gases. The catalytic converter will have to be replaced. This is a federal emissions vehicle.
