Hello, any chance you can do what we call a power balance test? meaning, unplug an injector at a time with engine running? if no change in running when you remove a plug wire or injector plug,that is the cylinder with the problem.Hope this makes sense, Igf you unplug an injector or spark plug engine running and engine runs worse or stalls? that cylinder is firing. I need to know if it is only one cylinder not firing and which one OR more than one cylinder. LMk if you can, Thanks

hello, my name is***** am a certified Chrysler technician, I will pick up where tracker left off. does your scanner have any data streams, do you have a section that says misfire counters? if not doing the injector test will determine which cyl is misfiring. since you say you only have a p0300 code I am going to assume its either a wire, plug, injector, or coil problem due to the fact if it was a cam problem there would be other codes. but lets start with the basics.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Cylinder 1 3 4 car runs the same. Shakes 2 it cuts off.
Ignition coil is brand new not even a month olt
Chrysler Mechanic: Thomas Ragusa,

and they are plugged in to the correct spots, the ignition wires, from coil to plug, 1 to 1 2 to 2. just making sure. covering all basis, it is still possible coil could of went bad again. check to make sure there is spark coming from the wires. pull a wire and put it close to metal, BE CAREFUL! and turn the motor to see if spark is coming from wire.

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.
