As the title says, I have a P0300 for random misfire but only at idle. The truck is an '01 Silverado 4.8 with some mods done to it. I've chased this problem for longer than I'd like to admit, so here I am. I am both the builder and the tuner and I can post the tune file if anyone wants to take a look through it.
Things I've checked:
I'm genuinely at a loss for this problem. The truck does not misfire under load above about 1,000 rpm, the only time it ever misfires is at idle. I've attached a lengthy log so anyone with any input can see exactly when the misfire counts start going up. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hi. What is your AFR ratio at idle? On some engines the lean mixture can cause misfire at light loads. Also i would check out the dwell time for ignition coils at idle to ensure they get enough charge time to fire the spark plug...
My pro link gets here today so I'll be able to log the AFR now. If the dwell time is off, how would that be corrected?
I'm not particularly familiar with HP tuners software but all stand-alone ECU have the option of altering dwell time. You just slightly increase the dwell time and check if it helps to solve the problem.
As far as I know, there is not a way to adjust dwell time in the PCM. The fuel system is all new except for the injectors. I wouldn't mind replacing them if they're the problem.
