Similarly, it is asked, how do you know if a cylinder is number 4?

Four cylinders sit on both the right and left sides of the engine, for a total of eight. To determine the location of parts on a car or truck or its engine with regard to left or right side, the accepted method is from sitting inside the car.

Similarly, what does code po304 mean? When the code P0304 is set in the Powertrain Computer, it means that the Misfire Monitor has detected more than a 2 percent variance in RPM between the firing of any two (or more) cylinders in the firing order. The Monitor wants to see a smooth increase or decrease in engine RPM.

Beside this, how much does it cost to fix a cylinder 4 misfire?

It depends on the cause. For example, if the misfire is caused by a bad on-plug ignition coil, which is quite common on many newer cars, the repair might involve replacing a bad coil and all the spark plugs. This could cost $300-$400 for a 4-cylinder engine or $450-$700 for a V6.

How are cylinders numbered on a 4 cylinder engine?

Numbering the cylinders based on their position along the crankshaft (e.g. 1-3-5-7 along the right side bank and 2-4-6-8 along the left side bank). This approach is typically used by V8 engines from General Motors, and Chrysler.
