1997 Boxster CEL

Hi guys,

new to the forum.
My 1997 Boxster is misfiring. I read the codes and got P1319, P1314, P0300 and P0302).
I did a forum search for some of these codes (P1319 and P1314) and there are a few posts related to the MAF.
Since these codes point only to cylinder 2 does this mean that the MAF is ok and that this is a cylinder 2 related problem.
I just need a starting point or a strategy to diagnose this.
Any help is really welcome.
Regards,

John, Portugal

Found this post

Sounds similar.
Should i change the ignition coils?
Maybe swapping the ignition coil on cylinder with other cylinder?
Any suggestion?
Txs.

They were recently replaced with brand new NGKs.

John,

Instead of fitting the old spark plug back in to test, just swap the new plug in cylinder 2 with another cylinder and see if the code follows the plug.

Sounds like cyl 2 plug, coil pack, or connectors just not seated properly. Probably an easy fix.

I'm happy to report that after replacing the coil pack on cylinder 2 everything is back to normal and the car is running great.

Thank you to users extanker, paulv and Topless for answering when I needed help.

Regards.
