Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The lights on the dash do not come on but they are ok when I turn the key on. No I do not work on the car myself

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

I need help because no codes can br gotten to tell whats wrong

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned you will receive a system automated call request, that is not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Also I am not paid hourly by just answers, I am only paid when you rate me, so if you could please respect my time and knowledge by rating me when we are finished that would be wonderful. If you could please indicate your level of experience and what you are looking to get out of your session today. Ok lets get started! When its in the fail condition have you monitored the spark and fuel to see if there are any fluctuations in its activity ?

so what ai mentioned above is where we need to start for diagnostics, if your unable to do that its basically blindly replacing parts from a guess at the symptoms or taking it into a shop

Please I can't afford another $26. There are many sites I have seen on line and there are many people that are having the same prob..
Jeep Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 27 days ago

please tell me what you want from me

Customer reply replied 27 days ago
At least a thought as to what might fix it. Other sites have suggesed from a stuck thermostat, plugs, sensers, wires and anything else. Hope 'bout an educated guess.
Jeep Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 27 days ago

thats what im trying to relay to you it will just be a guess and what good is that ? we can sit here and guess all day but until we do some actual diagnostics there will be no solid answers, so I give you a couple of guesses then what?

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
have you thought of calling the dodge co or might you have a jeep manual you might look it up. There may be a flow chart some where. It seem to me a sight that charges $26.00 for a phone call might think of something
Jeep Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 27 days ago

that would require you doing some diagnostics as stated before, I need to you check fuel pressure and spark on all cylinders when its in failure condition

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
How do I do that
Jeep Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 27 days ago

you will need a fuel pressure gauge and a inline spark checker or similar, do you have these tools ?

Customer reply replied 27 days ago

Jeep Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 27 days ago
