I have Factory Master Gold certification with Chrysler

Ok, If you dont have a factory scan tool, any diagnosis will not be 100% accurate. You need to access valuable input and output values that would lead you in the right direction. I think you would do yourself a favor and get it diagnosed at a dealership level shop instead of just replacing parts.

I may well be the the ECU or the TCM, but this needs to be verified by concrete tests that requires special tools.

is there anything i can do before dumping any more money into this contraption from home im just tired of taking back and forth thats pretty much what the book told me to do
Chrysler Mechanic: Meister Tech, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Honestly, from home all you will be able to do without scan tools and other special test equipment is just replacing parts. I believe you need a diagnostic tech to look at your situation. Or at least get your hands on a scan tool that can query the ECM and the TCM for codes.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA

Thank you so much for your answer. My initial estimate was $325; I got it done for $100 - part and labor.
