if the code is not present all of the time then it is not a continuous misfire. They are going to have to take the vehicle for a ride with the scan tool hooked up and see what the parameters are doing at the time of the misfire.

The Dealership says they cannot reproduce the issue... when i get it back and the problem occurs, by the time i get it to them the code is still there but the cause is gone
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
is this something i can get hooked up to the car to isolate this issue
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 month ago

as I have said, a scan tool is going to need to be hooked up to the vehicle while it is being driven, and when the misfire event occurs, the technician will need to freeze frame the parameters and then look at what happened at the time of the occurrence

Are there many things that could cause this intermittent problems
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 month ago

yes. spark plugs, coils, fuel injectors, low compression, bad wiring, a bad PCM, oil leaking into the spark plug tube, etc....

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.
