2015 GMC Sierra 6.2 P0308 Misfire Cylinder 8 CANT FIGURE IT OUT


Recommended Posts

Okay guys I bought this truck from a dealership in September. It was used and I got a 30 Day warranty. After the 30 day period, this is what’s happening. I got in my truck and noticed a rough idle. My truck would shake and out of no where the check engine light starts flashing and my traction control light comes on. I took it to my buddies and we got a P0308 Misfire Detected Cylinder 8. So I did some research.. I also had a code which was P219B. Air/fuel mixture ratio. 

 

I changed the spark plugs.. didn’t work. I moved coil packs.. the misfire didn’t move. So we watched Live data on the scanner and injector 7 was acting up. So we replaced all the injectors on that side and this truck is still missing.. I’ve ran seafoam through it and cleaned the throttle body and MAS.  My buddy things I have a valve issue or something wrong with the cylinder…
 

there is no AFM deleted or anything of that sort. The truck has worked flawlessly until now. 135,000 miles on it. The rocker arms all

looked great.
 

please someone give me something to try. I just want my truck fixed lol.  
 

posting a link below of what it’s doing…

Worst case is that it's a smoked camshaft lobe.

 

Probably need an ociliscope to make sure everything is working like a normal like a non issue cylinder.

 

I noticed you say you replaced all the injectors on the one bank but did you actually replace the cylinder 8 injector? Because cylinder 7 and 8 are on opposite banks.

We replaced all injectors on that side. It seemed like injector 8 was working fine but #7 was acting weird on the live data scanner.. so we replaced all 4 just in case. The weird thing is the truck idles like crap but drives amazing. 
 

I don’t have a scope is there any other way to see if the camshaft is working correctly?

So just to be clear, you replaced all the injectors on the driver's side so 1, 3, 5 and 7?  

 

If its the cam lobe, time to pull the head to pull the lifter.

Okay I’m sorry I have you guys confused. I have a misfire on cylinder 8. So if you’re looking at the front of the truck, it would be the furthest cylinder on the passenger side. We replaced all the injectors on that side of the engine. I’m not sure of the injector # correspondence but we replaced all the injectors on that side and still have a misfire. All the connectors looked good as well.  
 

it only does it at idle. I can drive it and it be completely fine.

i had 2 trucks give me the same symptoms that you are saying and both had electrical probs. over by the main fuse box on top the fender. the rats nest wiring and plug may have a lose pin that causes funny ****** to happen. but idk i hope you get it figured out. i do think if you had a plugged cat you would know for shure

mine was the big plug in frt of the fuse box ....maybe the best place to start ...check the whole main engine harness for damaged wire also ...your gonna need a wiring diagram. Somebody on here might be able to help with a pin number for #7 and #8 injectors i don't have that info

oh sorry forgot to answer your second question.....the computer controls the injector pulse so a lose or wonky connection screws that up big time ...also you said in your vid that it goes away witch is suspect too but this is all my best guess so ..........?

      I recently bought a Sierra 1500 Denali because I love this truck but I am now noticing parts are really hard to find, I want to replace or delete my quad steer but have no idea where to start or look. I haven't been able to find anything in hours. Any help?

      I have a 2014 Silverado LTZ, with a 5.3L engine. There is approximately 145,000 miles on the engine. I have a misfire on the #3 cylinder. I have replaced the induction coil on the #3 cylinder, but I still have a misfire on this cylinder. My mechanic says that the lobe on the camshaft is worn and the camshaft needs to be replaced. 
      I would think that if the lobe on the camshaft is bad then other lobes would also be bad, a defective camshaft.
       
      Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be causing the misfire.
       
      Thank you in advance for any advise the you can provide.
      Julian.

      BLUF: Ticking noise under truck, not heard from top of engine compartment.
       
      I noticed a ticking/clicking/pinging noise under my truck today, took a video, hopefully you can hear it.  Anyone else?
       
      Truck was in Park and Neutral (Parking brake engaged) and still heard the sounds.

      Hey everyone. I have a 2016 Sierra Denali. A while back I opted to do away with the magnaride struts and installed BIlstein 6112s in the front with Cognito UCAs and BIlstein 5100s in the rear, also added Xineering bypass kit to clear the Magnaride errors. I had an issue recently with the stop mount on the drivers side strut blowing out. I contacted BIlstein about it and the rep told me he thought he had been told that the distance between the LCA and where the strut mounts into the truck frame at the top on a magnaride equipped Denali is shorter than a normal Sierra and that it was possible that the strut was too compressed, causing it to push through the top mount. Has anyone ever heard this or experienced this issue? I can’t find anything mentioned about it anywhere. I’m taking the truck in next week to get it fixed but if it’s going to just happen again I am wondering if I need to get different struts all together.
