Customer Question
I did a mds...

I did a mds delete on my 2006 dodge charger...I took heads to the shop and I got some non mds lifters and the mds solenoid block off plugs..I put the the heads back on and the number 1 and 2 cylinders dont have any compression and it has a skip...Could changing the lifters cause the vlaves not to close?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Have you noticed any leaks lately?

154k no

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Charger yourself? What have you tried so far?

Its at a local shop

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Car was recently rebuilt about a year ago

The short answer is no, changing to non MDS lifters won’t cause this. What I do suspect is that may not have a pushrod correctly installed, this is easily done on this engine. I’d suggest you pull the valve covers off again and have a look.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
