Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
What codes are you getting?
Ive never heard of a scan tool that will only give a code description. Try going to a parts store and have them pull the codes. Its important to have accurate information to diagnose it and I wouldnt be changing a bunch of parts creating more possible suspects when youre already having trouble figuring the issue out.
A burnt valve will show up on a compression test.
When you do a repair you need to clear the codes then it will take a little while to reset with the new cylinder number.
Yeah.. it wouldnt have changed immediately.. the PCM needs some time to see the misfire move.
You can ask all the questions needed.. this question will stay open as long as needed for follow ups even after you rate my service.
Sorry for the delay. Been so busy around here barely have had time to sit down and eat let alone work on the computer.
Anyway the codes would indicate an issue with the injector circuit on cylinder 2. Have you checked for an injector pulse with a noid light? If not start there.
Gotcha. Operator error ;)
For future reference moving the coil and injector is the best method to rule them good or bad as new (remanufactured) ones tend to have a high failure rate if they come from a chain parts store.
The only catch is you gotta clear the codes after doing it to see if the code moves.. or drive it a couple of hundred miles and eventually the PCM will remove the misfire from cylinder 2 and put it in history and set an active code for 5. The easiest method is to clear them.
Learning lesson for us both. Now I know to ask if they cleared the codes after swapping them if they say they already tried swapping them.
