To determine if a faulty electronic control module (ECM) is causing the cylinder to misfire, perform the following:
Note: Carefully disengage the lock tab on the power harness and injector harness connectors when removing.
- Remove the thru-bolts holding the ECM to the engine;
- Remove the ECM from the engine and tag the ECM for core return.
- Obtain a new reprogrammed ECM for the engine you are troubleshooting.
- Inspect the ECM isolators for any damage. Replace if necessary,
- Install the ECM to the engine using thru-bolts;
- Torque the ECM thru-bolts to 23 – 27 N · m (17 – 20 lb · ft).
- Torque the ECM connector hold-down screws to 24 – 30 N · m (21 – 26 lb · in.).
Faulty ECM Repair
No repair authorized for ECM.
Verification of Repair for Faulty ECM
Perform the following steps to determine if the new ECM resolved the misfiring cylinder condition:
- Start the engine.
- Run the engine speed up to the occurrence of the misfiring.
- Listen for misfiring cylinder.
- If the engine is not misfiring, shut down the engine. No further troubleshooting is required.
- If the engine is misfiring, shut down the engine and check for worn or damaged valves and cylinder kits;
