Fault code P1345

So I got my car checked and it threw up the code P1345, I've looked on line and it says "misfire cylinder 2 with fuel cutoff"...

So is this the Right meaning for the code or is it something else and if it is the misfire issue do I just need to change the spark plugs/coils or is there more to it?

Many thanks

A fault code of P1345 on a BMW is: "Misfire Cylinder 2 With Fuel Cut-off". This means that the OBD II system has detected a misfire in cylinder 2 and has shut off the number 2 injector to keep from flooding the catalytic converter with fuel making things nice and hot. You now have an inline five engine-just like Audi, GM, and Volvo...
It's either the plug, coil, or the associated wiring and connectors IMO. good luck!

I've changed the coil and spark today, sounds a better but still a tad shakey, might run some injector cleaner to see if that helps if there's any blockages, what sort of connectors would relate to that fault? Also would the camshaft sensor have anything to do with it, as I've been told but I have no idea,

Many thanks

canshaft sensor would set a SES code, so should a bad coil etc...but the connector/wiring fault may not.

I guessed your year and make, but I would change what is in between your coil and the plug...i.e. the wiring in your case.

Does this look like your car...

If so, change #3 too.

If not, look up your parts here: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do

Well it's a BMW compact 316 2002,

I already bought a camshaft sensor and thought it might be that but haven't got round fitting it yet

and from looking at the diagram I have no idea lol, sorry

I'll get the camshaft changed but a the moment the car is running smooth and no noises and no code so the plugs and coils may have done the trick just have to wait and see if it starts throwing any codes or messing about

Really appreciate the help bro, I'll post back soon

no problem, glad it is running fine again...you have a more conventional set-up..connector comes with coil...so if you had another issue, start with inspecting the mail connector on your wire harness that plugs into your coil (#4).

Ok if the problem starts again I'll give it a go,

what is it that I'm looking for in the wiring?

How would I check the wiring if it starts giving me trouble,

Many thanks
