Customer reply replied 4 months ago
my mechanic checked number 1 cylinder and another cylinder...not sure which one...he said it was 170 and 175...he pulled spark #1 the other day...I don't know ifn itb was wet
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 4 months ago

ok, he needs to do a continuity test of the wiring from the pcm to the coil and from the pcm to the injector. do you know if he check the injector for pulse?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I think it was pulsing but I will check with him
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 4 months ago

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
what does the continuity test tell us?
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 4 months ago

if the wiring between the coil and PCM and the wiring between the injector and PCM is good.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
do you think it could be the computer module?
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 4 months ago

It could be, but I never condemn a component unless I know its bad. the wiring must be checked.

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.
