Hey guys, I have been getting misfire on cylinders 4,5,6 after I took off my EGR system. My car is OBD2 so I wanted to know if any of you OBD2 guys have done the EGR removal and have had this problem.
First, chill... look at your orignal post. Do you see any mention of ODB2 codes pointing to cylinder misfire? You provided absolutely no background research on your part in the post. Plus, when is the misfire occuring; or are you just relying on the codes to tell you something is wrong? Details William... your original post lacks details.tuanthuy_99 said:Scott,
The reason why I know that cylinders 4,5,6 are misfiring is because I got OBD2 codes that state that misfire was detected in those cylinders..I didn't just grab it out of my ass. The reason why I know that I believe that it is my EGR removal is because I didn't have this problem until after my EGR removal. It states in my repair manual that if misfire is detected in cylinders 4,5,6 that you should check your fuel injectors, fuel pressure, EGR, and finally MAF. I haven't touched my injectors, fuel pressure or MAF so I concluded that it has to be my EGR.
I am still running w/ my distributor setup
Details: OBDII codes are P0304, P0305, P0306 which stands for misfiring in cylinder 4, 5, and 6 respectively. Misfiring occurs while cruising on the highway. Back ground research I found which made me conclude that it was the EGR(also the fact that this misfiring never happened until after I removed my EGR system):First, chill... look at your orignal post.

I appreciated all of the help that you gave me Scott and I have always thanked you and have offered to help you also, but that is not true stating that I would rather have someone else do my work. Yeah maybe I asked you to help me drill my block and you got my oil return line but I did everthing else to install my turbo kit. On my last car, I did everthing on my own(including putting a new motor, transmission, wiring it up, etc.) and never sent my car to a shop to get fixed. You've only known me for a couple of weeks and you come to superficial conclusions. Please....All I've every done in the past is help you. Unlike others on this forum, I've worked with you before, and you'd rather have someone do the work for you instead of doing it yourself. You know that's a fact.
I posted in 2 different message boards...this one and clublexus. Big damn deal..I am sure there are some guys that browse supraforums and not clublexus and vice versa. That also goes with the NA section and TT tech. If I offended you by cross-posting, I am sorry. Please.....P.S. BTW, cross-posting to 3 different forums/sections is just plain rude.
