Customer Question

2.4 liter dohc vin g Dodge Stratus. throwing codes 171 and 172. Engine revs under throttle but no power and doesn't want to upshift. Usually performs fairly well up to around 1/4 throttle but falls on it's face under full throttle. Occasionally shifts and runs perfectly.
JA: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?
Customer: 180,000 miles
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: new tps, cleaned idle air control and mass air sensors.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Dodge Mechanic should know about your Dodge?
Customer: occasional rough idle. All symptoms are intermittent but runs poorly more that good.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dodge Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
