Default Re: Isolating cylinder misfire issue

Update on the Misfire Issue.

The shop changed the plugs and wires. They also changed out the timing belt, water pump and intake gaskets. They drove it around and there were no codes being thrown. It looked like that had solved the problem. So, I paid for the work and drove off.

That night, the Check Engine Light came on, again. Same code, #4 Cyl Misfire. Back to the shop.

More looking, head scratching and puzzlement. Pulled cylender head and found a burnt #4 exhaust valve. They replaced valve and I got the car back this past Thursday evening. Drove it off and had to make a 150 mile trip that night.

Good News! No lights, no codes, car ran great! UNTIL I was about half way to my destination, still no codes being thrown, but start hearing a gentle tap, tap, tapping under my hood.

Story to be continued in another thread, different problem now.
