what was the EXACT code you retrieved?

and is the white smoke there with the injector UNPLUGGED as well?

the white smoke is raw fuel (most likely) caused by an injector being held constantly open or stuck open

Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

does it have any codes NOW?

unplug the injector and see if the smoke clears IF it does there is a wiring problem OR failed computer if NOT the injector is defective

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Son is going to run codes again and try what you said as soon as he is done I'll let you know

With van running injector unplugged codes are p0123 and p1193 . with car off and injector still unplugged codes are p0202, p0201, and p0123. He's now hooking up injector and going to run codes again . still smokes while injector is unhooked.

far have replaced #1 injector and throttle sensor
Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

if it still smokes with the injector unplugged and it DIDN"T smoke before you replaced the injector the injector you purchased is defective

My son is going to go get a new injector tomorrow after work if we need help again will you be available and is the cost the same to speak to you again because I think god sent me to you dad usually is my go to and his name is ***** ***** Snapp so bill too.
Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

all the experts are independent contractors so YES i will be available BUT remember you MUST REPLY TO THIS THREAD if you DO NOT and open a new question you will get another expert and be charged again.

please also remember i work full time as a chrysler tech at a dealer so there is a chance i MAY be working when you reply and cannot reply back quickly, i am on the east coast and there also may be a time difference

once you're satisfied with my service i will ask for a rating once you rate i will be paid for my time, i usually don't ask for ratings until the question has run it's course and my pay comes out of the fee you paid already the expert splits the fee with the site

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Totally a triple AAA rating god bless you .
Expert:  bill replied 1 year ago.

not asking yet lets see if we can get this van running right first
