Customer Question
I have a 2005 Dodge...
I have a 2005 Dodge Dakota with a 4.7 Ltr and the engine just started to misfire on number 8 cylinder. It only does this when the rpm reads 1400 rpm to 1600 rpm. I have replaced the sparkplugs , the coil pack on the #8 cylinder, I replaced the fuel injector as well. the misfire gets real bad at 1500 rpm. need to know if this will be a easy fix.

Have you tested the compression of #8 cylinder?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Not yet but it doesn't do it all of the time that's what bugs me.
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 2 years ago
If it doesn't misfire all the time it's not going to be a compression issue.. Is the check engine light on and if so what codes are in the PCM?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The code comes up as P0308 and nothing else.
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 2 years ago
And it only misfires between 1400-1600 and run perfect before and after the RPM range?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yep. but it gets real bad if I keep it at 1500 rpms.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
at 1500 rpm for a short time then it will activate the check engine light.
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 2 years ago
Since you have replaced the coil and injector I will need for you to have someone hold the throttle at 1500 while you get a noid light or test light and clip it to positive battery post and probe the injector and coil to make sure the PCM driver is working properly. The test light should flash fast and you should also compare it to the other cylinders.. Let me know what you find,Brad

My wife has the truck today so I cant do anything until she gets home from work, which isn't until 6:00 pm or 7:30 pm if that's ok.
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 2 years ago
Sure.. That will be fine..
