Slight misfire with EML flashing

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My IS200 (2004) is slightly misfiring and not pulling properly, with the engine management light flashing.  This only happens when I restart the engine when it's already been run up to operating temperature i.e. if I've driven the car for a while, switched off the engine then restarted it a few minutes later.  I'm suspecting a sensor, possibly the Lambda sensor.  It's done 148k miles.

I know I need to get the codes read but just wondered if anyone else has experienced this.

I've now read the codes. 

P0300 Random/Multiple Cyliner misfire detected

P0301 Cylinder 1 misfire detected

P0303 Cylinder 3 misfire detected

P0304 Cylinder 4 misfire detected

P0305 Cylinder 5 misfire detected

As in the original post, starting from cold it runs fine, it only seems to be happening when I restart from when the engine is already pretty warm i.e. it's been run up to operating temperature, switched off and then restarted a few minutes later.


Any ideas people?

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
