Misfire detection is accomplished by monitoring the crankshaft speed with the crankshaft speed fluctuation (CKF) sensor
which is attached to the crankshaft.
lf misfiring strong enough to damage the catalyst is detected. the MIL will blink during the time of its occurrence, and DTC

lf misfiring that increases emissions is detected during two consecutive driving cycles, the MIL will come on, and DTC
P0300*5 or P1300*3 *a and some of DTCS P0301 through P0304 will be stored.
NOTE: lf some of the DTCS listed below are stored at the same time as a misfire DTC. troubleshoot those DTCS first, then
recheck for the misfire DTC.
