Customer Question
I have a 2005...

I have a 2005 Pacifica, New plugs and gasket, new water pump and timing belt and tensioner.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the timing belt? Have you ever had to change it before?

No the car was new to me with 165,000, the water pump was leaking I went in and did the whole thing when it began to run rough all of a sudden.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pacifica yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am, I was an ASE certified Tech for 15 years before my accident. It takes me longer to get the job done and to type this.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just that It was running when I pulled it in the garage and it runs now but no better than it did before. It did have Misfire codes before but does not now so far

Sorry, I have another job, was wondering if a fuel pressure could be the problem. Codes cleared just falls flat with throttle
Chrysler Mechanic: eric remington,
 replied 3 months ago

that is a possibility...you can purchase a fuel pressure gauge at harbor freight... like 20 bucks...sometimes parts stores have gauges available......just misfire codes? coils god injectors..I know its hard to figure out when its not acting up. get me vin number and I will check and see if there are any tech service bulletins

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.
