P0308 Fault Cylinder H-Misfire Detected (CYL8)

It means that for some reason Cylinder 8 is requiring more fuel than other cylinders to keep crankshaft speed constant

Is that the only code you have?

Do you have the abillity to do a balance test?

You have to have a Code reader. You can buy one from a local auto parts store, or most hand held tuners can read codes

No i doesnt. The only thing that will come up is a light that says "Service Engine Soon" or atleast thats what mine says, then you have to have EFI LIVE or PPE or any other programmer that you can go and read the DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) codes and once you have that you can go to some of these forums and they have a DTC list that has a good majority of the codes listed and a brief description of the problem.

Brian this is a serious thread lol. The code came up while I was in town, so I ran into Best Buy and used one of their computers to post this thread in asking for help. I cleared the code with my old superchips programmer, and it hasnt came back up. But the last time I went to Georgia to get retuned, Harley noticed that #8 injector was requiring more fuel. Is the #8 injector going out?

3 hour drive to Harley's :rolleyes:

I wont worry about unless the light comes on again. I guess all I can do is add injector cleaner and hope for the best since I dont have the tools to check the balances.
