My engine light is on and it reads Code P0303 Cylinder 3 Misfire. Drives rough so I parked it til I can find a mechanic to fix it. Dealer ship cannot even look at it for 2 weeks. Guess I'll try having the same thing done from a friend I know instead of taking it to the dealer ship.Posting this here in case it helps anyone else out. But I also want to check whether I was ripped off. We have an extended warranty but are required to take the car to our non-preferred mechanic.
Our CEL came on with the P0305 code that cylinder 5 was misfiring. The mechanic wanted to change out two bad ignition coils and replace all spark plugs. In addition they recommended a fuel induction service to clean out the engine. I figured at 74,000 miles that wouldn't be a bad idea. Here was the cost:
Ignition coils - Parts $170, Labor $319
Spark plugs - Parts $155.94, Labor $145
Fuel Induction service - Parts - $90 (fuel system cleaner), Labor $99
Total parts and labor was $1337. Thankfully warranty covered $471 of it. But that seems awfully high.
