Star Diagnostic System (SDS).Yes, the fuel filter showed up at the same time as the plug wires. Will swap it out today so I know it has been done.
Is there a specific scanner that would be suggested?
There are so many inexpensive (and expensive) scanners out there. I would think any of them that can stream live data should give you similar options, as far as what engine data can be read. I wouldn’t spend too much money on this kind of tool. I doesn’t matter how fancy these third party scanners are, they will always have their limitations as compared to Star system. You might as well put that money towards the real thing.Is there a specific scanner that would be suggested?
That sounds like timing rather than a fuel cut out issue. Im interested to see how this works out.I did bring it up to high rpm range with little load (left transmission in low gear and just brought the revs up with light throttle) and it set the codes.
Yes, you’ll have enough there to do the basics. Air Mass, Fuel Trims, Manifold pressure and much more…is the Autel you noted above capable of performing the tests on the trouble shooting guide you provided on the first page of the thread?
Not very difficult but, impractical and unnecessary. On M113 to remove injector, all 8 need to come out, by lifting entire fuel rail. On re-assembly, even when re-installing old injectors, you need set of new o-rings for all of them.How hard is it to swap a fuel injector on that car?
Because this is what it is, a clone software and clone hardware, there is aways an element of uncertainty when buying these systems. I couldn’t even recommend the system I bought 3-4 years ago, which is bullet proof and was priced very reasonably… because this is a moving target. Vendors come and go, products evolve to a different packages.While we're on the subject- I see clones of SDS, and products such as Carsoft etc. Is there a preferred source if I were to go this route?
I'm leery of items such as this one off of DHgate, but if there is a known reliable source I'd investigate further.
I believe it's been established that there are two specific cylinders that learn to mis-fire after hard acceleration. I think the P0300 simply refers to the pair because no other cylinder-specific codes are presented.The P0300 code indicates that you have an issue with the spark plug or a single fuel injector. So you need to check the air compression system otherwise, it may cause misfiring and reduce your vehicle performance.

I don't know what Star Diagnostic does in testing Fuel Injectors but injectors have had my vote since the coil and spark plug changes failed.Star Diagnostic fuel injector test is a definite must try
The injectors get turned on and off one by one. No misfire induction means obvious bad injector. I remember Photodude running that test on my 500 last yearI don't know what Star Diagnostic does in testing Fuel Injectors but injectors have had my vote since the coil and spark plug changes failed.
Best of luck on this one!
