Fuel Injector Misfire 0304 error 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix, 3.8L, base

Asked by Mar 15, 2017 at 05:51 PM about the 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix, 3.8L, base
Cylinder 4 misfire at startup and under hill climb load
Completed - new plugs/wires, new ignition coils, cleaned injectors, then replaced #4 injector.
I also have a 0455 error which I'm pretty sure is emission canister valve fail.  I've bought the replacement but have not installed yet. (I've already replaced gas cap and purge valve).  I'm doubting that would impact a single cylinder or the misfire at all.
I'm about to go change the #4 injector connector.  After that I'm thinking I have a manifold gasket leak?  Any diagnostic tips or suggestions are appreciated.  Thanks

Check the intake manifold bolts to make sure there snugged up. You on the right path for diagnosing the problem. Other causes, I didn't include what you have done already... Fuel injector 4 harness is open or shorted, Fuel injector 4 circuit poor electrical connection, Ignition coil 4 harness is open or shorted, Ignition coil 4 circuit poor electrical connection, Insufficient cylinder 4 compression, Incorrect fuel pressure, Intake air leak...Here is some info on your other code....P0455 PONTIAC - Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected Gross Leak...Possible causes; Missing or loose fuel cap, Incorrect fuel filler cap used, Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close, Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap, EVAP canister or fuel tank leaks, EVAP system hose leaking, Fuel tank leaking...The P0455 it’s a very common code, because the code is set if the gas cap is loose or missing. Start by tighten the gas cap and clearing the code. In most cases the code can be clear by disconnecting the car battery for about 30 minutes.
