Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!!

I see that you have a cylinder #3 misfire, but what have you done to correct it? If nothing then I would swap coils, spark plugs, injectors, until the misfire moves and then replace that component..

Let me know what you find,

Brad

little history on the engine. has 150,000 miles. at 120,000 lost a valve seat, had both heads done.I am throwing a p0303 code, I've replaced plugs, coil packs, pulled injector - cleaned and then swapped with another.
did compression test on the left bank, I got 145, 140, 130 (cyl 3), 140
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Running compression test gave me on cyl 3 idle 50 and snap acceleration about 92
I have removed the valve cover also to check for broken springs - Look good

I see you wrote this:

Are you testing the 3rd one back on drivers side as cylinder #3? If so then #3 is the 2nd one back on the drivers head.. Drivers head is 1-3-5-7, pass 2-4-6-8.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no that was back to front..... and I'm sorry its P0304 so cyl 4 is 2nd on pass side... that is what I am working on
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 1 year ago

And #4 is 2nd from the front on the drivers side, so you have swapped coils-injectors-spark plugs and it still misfires? Is it dead cylinder or intermittent misfire? If you grab a test light is the coil and injector receiving proper ground pulse from the PCM?

used a noid light. both getting pulse.
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 1 year ago

I'm sorry I posted #4 is 2nd back on drivers, and I meant to say passenger side.. And is this a dead cylinder?

What is compression of #4 and are you using Champion plugs?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
130 and I believe champions...not really sure. what would the brand have to do with a misfire?
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 1 year ago

Because I have had Independant shops bring misfires into my dealership and the problem was they used Autolite plugs. Once I installed Champion the misfire went away...

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I've swapped plugs between cylinders, old and new -
wouldn't the problem follow?
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 1 year ago

Yes and if it hasn't moved your issue isn't the plugs.. What year model do you have and is it a dead misfire or intermittent? Since it's 130 and the rest are 140 I would perform a leakdown test to see if you have an issue with the rings or valve seats. Which cylinder did you have an issue with valve seats?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
2002 and I don't believe its a dead cylinder, idols rough, not horrible and it runs smooth when driving. Nothing noticeable in much power loss.
Dodge Mechanic: -Brad-, Dodge Dealership Tech replied 1 year ago

If it's not a dead cylinder then yes I would perform a cylinder leakdown test to see why it's lower than the rest..
