P0300 p0303 p0304 code...

P0300 p0303 p0304 code just replaced all coils

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

P0300 p0303 p0304 and iu just replaced the coil harness since the old one was fried from the engine heat

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Volvo?

96 960

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 960 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I pulled the coils when i got a p0300 code coming home from work the number 3 coil was fried the connectors on 4 56 were melted in and the loom on the wire was goner don't know how long it was like that since i just bought the car

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

hi,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, on the wiring harness, were any of the wires melted or brittle and missing insulation and bare wires touching each other? and if so, do you remember the wire colors

I am trying to determine if the ecm may have been fried on those circuits due to exposed wiring shorting against each other or the block
