there were more codes it read 1 of 9 it starts right up it just doesn't idle smooth it idles up and down like it wants to cut out I didn't try to take it down the road

how and when did this problem begin?
what were the other codes?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

it was a month ago it just happened all the sudden that's what surprised me i haven't been driving it i trying to call the one who read all the codes

you replaced all coils?,,the wires? intake gakets and the plugs?sense this problem began?

yes, even fuel pressure regulator and fuel filter and injectors I'm trying to get ahold of the guy who has the scanner no answer I'm sorry

thats fine,,just reply bwhen you get them
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX them for me now. The crank shaft censor was replaced about 6 years ago if that helps. the codes are Po300,po351, po352,po353,po354,po355,po356,po357 and po358 I hope this helps you

sense we get the 300 missfire code and a code for each coil,,,,
i think you may need to replace the crank sensor once again,,but,,the problem here may be the computer going to give you some tests/checks for the 358,,it is the same as the others but for the different seven cylenders..

please copy and paste the link below to your browser..i have uploaded more info on this there
