- Performed pre-scan finding multiple codes: p130a for cylinder disabling, p055 f00 for engine low oil pressure out of range, p0301 cylinder misfire number one detected, p0304 four cylinder number 4 misfire detected, p0302 for cylinder 2 misfire detected, p0300 for multiple cylinder misfire detected, p0341 for camshaft sensor circuit range performance. During general inspection found engine oil to be 2 quarts low due to leaking drain plug gasket. Topped off oil with 5W40 full synthetic oil, and continued on while monitoring oil level. Using scan data, confirmed cylinder number two has a severe misfire. Suspect possible spark plug or coil issue. Removed spark plug & coil and inspected. Spark plugs appear to be the original equipment and need to be replaced by mileage. However, verified coils and spark plugs were not causing the misfire. Found valve cover spark plug tube gaskets are leaking into number 4 cylinder and valve cover gasket needs to be replaced. While testing for cylinder number 2 misfire, detected loud noise coming from timing chain area. Suspecting possible timing chain tensioner is losing oil pressure. Found TSB number tt17-13-01 for oil pressure at idle stating that the mandrel maybe missing from not being transferred from old oil filter. Removed oil filter and inspected confirming the mandrel is still present. Inspected filter and found minimal metal debris. Drained oil and inspected confirming excessive amount of metal debris, indicating engine has internal issue. Recommend tear down of engine to pinpoint exactly what has failed (may be more cost effective to replace motor without tear down). Also recommending to replace all four injectors at that time for good measure.
- During vehicle inspection found: Engine Oil: engine oil is due for an oil change by color along with very low on oil Brake Fluid: brake fluid tested bad recommend brake service Belts (Engine, accessory, serpentine, V-drive): belt has unusual wear
- ENGINE OIL & FILTER – Remove & Replace – 2.0L Eng,O.H.C.- DOHC,Gas
