Fix code P0316 Serious misfire in first 1,000 engine revolutions

The P0316 code means that the PCM has detected a serious misfire in the first 1,000 engine revolutions. If there are no other misfire codes, this code can indicate a problem with a crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position sensor, or a wiring issue. Since this code indicates a start up misfire, pay attention to items which may expand or contract when cold (if the code sets when the engine is cold), or hot (if the code sets on a hot restart).

If you have other misfire codes that pertain to individual cylinders, you should attend to them first.
