Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.Usually this is a bad coil pack. Does your scan tool have a misfire counter on it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
wow they just ripped me off for $26 to begin with..supposed to be $5 one time fee now $26?!!!!
2001 Caddy DTS all the sudden started missing really badly and service engine light came up for pulled a code PCM0300 and IPM B 0429
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 1 year ago.
You must have misread it. The 5 dollars is a deposit on the actual question value of 26 which is charged once you get a reply. Would you like me to forward this to customer service for a refund or continue knowing the cost?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
nope not a deposit its already withdrawn 26 dollars from my paypal....and I pulled codes from dash so no misfire counts
Expert:  mike switzer replied 1 year ago.
without a scanner to watch misfire counters it is going to be hard to identify what cylinder(s) are missing. what you can do while the engine is running is unplug one coil at a time to find the one that has the least amount of change when you unplug it. that will tell you what cylinder is being effected.
