Hey guys. I have an 04 SE Murano with almost 228k on the cluster. I currently live in Cali and need to get my smog test done asap, so I can register the car in less than 3 weeks. Anyways, I get the occasional Check Engine Light due to a P0420 code. That code comes and goes...and so does the light.
As of today, the CEL is off. I did have the codes checked, and since the light is off, the P0420 is not showing up anymore. On the other hand, the P0302 is popping up on the scanner, even without the CEL. From my understanding, it is a cylinder 2 misfire (the "02" in the P0302 meaning that it's cylinder two), which will fail me during the test. Without digging in too deep (since I don't have much time, or work space, or any real sense in spending much money on a car with these many miles), would anyone know if replacing the #2
cylinder coil possibly fix the issue?
I did replace my spark plugs with the OEM set about 50k miles ago and don't believe they should be causing an issue. The #2
coil should be right upfront...resulting in easier access than having to remove the entire intake mani, like I did to replace the spark plugs (maybe I could swap between another coil up front). Truthfully, I do not want to spend much time, money and effort on this car. Im ready to replace the beast but would like to run it until I find my next vehicle. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance!
