Code P0316

Can anyone tell me what can be throwing the code P0316 ? I did a bit of research and found that it means this: Engine Misfire Detected on Startup (First 1000 Revolutions) I also read though that the code is usually followed by another code indicating which cylinder is misfiring (ex. P0301 etc..) but all i got is the P0316 code?

according to the haynes book that code is for 95 and later. your sig says 94. Haynes says that code does not exist for a 94.


never mind. reread and saw the 04.
