Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. Is the check engine light on? Are there any codes in the computer?
Ok, have you had a basic tune up done?
What is the engine vacuum at idle?
Ok, the engine vacuum is WAY TOO LOW. This is either caused by an air or a vacuum leak or incorrect valve timing. I would start by checking for vacuum leaks first and then check the timing belt marks as needed.
In addition, the engine compression specs for this engine are 170 to 225 psi.
21 inches of vacuum at idle
Ok, good! Then I would be checking the timing belt and marks next.
I am glad I can help!
