Good morning,

If you clear the misfire code how long does it take to come back on?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
maybe 2 mins...its also flashing service light..we were thinking maybe pcm or stuck or burnt valve
Chrysler Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Flashing means an active misfire that is bad enough to turn the injector off. You're right to suspect a valve issue. That's fairly common. Have you performed a compression test or leakdown test yet?

Is your PT the turbo model?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
the compression was 170 and yes it is turbo
Chrysler Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

That's not bad. Do you have a scan tool that will perform bi-directional controls?

no I dont
Chrysler Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

You've checked for injector pulse with a test light or noid light right?

Was the compression on the neighboring cylinders about the same?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
according to my mechanic it had pulse on #1 cylinder...I think he said the com pression on the next cylinder was 175
Chrysler Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

Since the misfire is so bad I would probably perform a leakdown test. That will tell you if you have a cracked valve. If that test comes out ok then next I would hook up a smoke machine and see if you have an intake manifold gasket leak. That's pretty common on this engine.

I just take out plug number one and hook up a leakdown tester?
Chrysler Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 5 months ago

You'll need to remove the valve cover so you can rotate the engine to the compression stroke (TDC) on cylinder 1. Then hook up the leakdown tester. If you can hear hissing through the intake or the exhaust then you have a cracked valve.

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.
