good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist

I assume you had a code 300 for random miss fire?? if you did, the most common issue is low fuel pressure. I would start with getting a fuel pressure tester and checking the fuel pump. it may be low enough to run the engine but not give good performance.

Expert:  Roy Belding replied 10 months ago.

thats the last thing I would go to.

you need to start with a fuel pressure test to verify the pump is good.

i don't think we are on the same page. did you read the last part on page 1
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 10 months ago.

I read your original post on this post, yes.

Expert:  Roy Belding replied 10 months ago.

I read your post but I do not guess or throw parts at a car without confirming a failure. anyone who is a tech has a process of diagnostics and follow those processes until you find the failure, then you replace the failed part.

I am sorry if you dont agree with that. maybe someone else can help you with your guessing to see if you find the failure.

good luck

I told you that everything and i mean everything has been checked and checked again by a mechanic with proper tools, I don't think low fuel pressure would cause oil sending unit not to work? I wanted to try this just answers to see if any body had a problem like this, sorry to have wasted your time I wasted 24.00!!
Expert:  Roy Belding replied 10 months ago.

your primary problem listed is the random miss fire.

when you tell me things are fine, I need specifics. I take no ones word for anythng as I dont know them.

good luck
