Hello and Welcome!

Misfire codes on cylinders 2,4,and 6 indicate a timing problem. Due to the misfire codes only being set on bank 2, bank 2 is the left bank.

P0300 is a random misfire code.

P0420 catalytic converter efficiency low. This code should be diagnosed after the misfire is fixed. Misfires can set a false po420 code to set.

For your next step i would recommend performing a compression check on the engine to confirm that the timing is off. bank 2 compression readings cylinders 2,4,and 6 will be low compared to bank 1 cylinders 1,3,5

Or you can remove the front timing cover and verify the timing marks are correct.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
