What did I do?!

Alright so if you read my post in the exhaust section for WK2 you will see my problem will the valves in the exhaust rattling like crazy!

On the way to run some errands my engine light comes on. I'm worried sick about it at that point. I check my trinity and he shows P0303. Misfire in cylinder 3.

What the hell did we do that made this all happen? I am so worried right now as I don't have tons of money to fix stuff. The only thing I can think of is go back to the exhaust shop and have them put everything back on! There goes 400 dollars out the window...

Someone please help. This is driving me insane. I am freaking out

I read your post in the exhaust section I would make sure that shop did not remove valves . I would make sure. Many have removed them but I left mine just to avoid this type of headache and fuel mileage

I'm sure he didn't. I watched him do the whole thing. We talked about what to do with them and he said research it and then we will figure out what to do with them.
The valves are for sure there.

Not knowing exactly your setup maybe the install caused one or more of the valves to be in a bind and be stuck either open or shut, you can check their movement from underneath make sure they move freely

I was playing with them before we took her off the lift. No problems. They were moving fine and were not stuck. The rattle is horrible and I am getting the check engine light sound more and more. Guessing the cylinder is misfiring more now. I'm getting worried.

What did I do?!

Do you know how to check your spark plugs? If so, pull the plugs on cyl. #3 and see what they look like? It'll be the second cylinder from the front on the drivers side.

I checked for leaks and missed welds. Did not see anything.

Anyone else chime in? I really would like to get this sorted out.

Does the check engine light come on when Eco mode turns on? Drive in sport or track to turn off Eco and see if you still get the light.
