Hello** and the car is a 3.0 liter I did test all the coils when I changed the spark plugs all tested good but #4 coil they all tested 0.5 to 0.8 ohms prime side and all but #4 tested 5.50 to 5.60 ohms 2nd output side I don't remember the ohms on the cam sensor but it tested same as the new one.

I am starting to think the pcm is bad but I want to test all the wiring before spending the money on a new pcm but I can't find the pin number for each as listed cam to pcm, crank to pcm, coils 1 to 6 to pcm. and I don't have a scope to run a trace on the pcm coil drivers.

After I changed the spark plugs it started for a few minutes and then died and now will not start up again cranks over fine but no fire on at least #4 will test #5 and #6 tomorrow

Normally these codes indicate weak coils. Is this a permanent miss or intermittent? I do have the wire diagrams and pin charts if they are needed. You can test the PCM coil drivers using a noid light. Its not as accurate as a scope but it does work. You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.Thanks Chris
