Hello, let me review your request. Please stand by.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question

Does the engine run smooth in park?

Yea it isn't shaking or anything . I also know I didn't have the p0300 code before I did the head gaskets

Have you checked for vacuum leaks?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Yeah I did . Also I don't have the exhaust connected to the manifolds yet

What was the reason for head gasket replacement?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Was running hot .

Since the exhaust is not sealed, a fault in oxygen sensor reading can cause p0300 code. Since it is running smooth at idle i doubt timing is incorrect.

What would make it cut off when put in drive then ?

It is possible as the air /fuel ratio can get affected with faulty oxygen sensor reading. If not, once you put the exhaust back on more codes will show up.

Ok I will put the pipes back on

Also were the cylinder head tested for leaks before reinstalling?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
