Did you try disconnecting and plugging any hoses going to the EGR, and see if it makes a difference?

I have a 2000 Dodge Stratus with a random misfire on 1,3 and 5. The engine runs fine besides a twitch in the motor that can be felt while idling. Already replaced plugs and wires. Suggestions?

get the OBD codes read this will tell you which switch/sensor is causing the issue , the last random misfire i encountered turned out to be low cylinder compression so if the OBD code says " random misfire " then get the cylinder compressions read , hope this helps

Eng code p0355 and p0305 2007 mbz ml350 eng runs rough but after restarting runs ok.

p0355 indicates that engine misfire is present.

p0305 indicates that the misfire is in the cylinder number 5

Have the spark plug tested/replaced and test the cylinder number 5 spark plug coil.

Dodge obd code p0305

The DTC (Data Trouble Code) P0305 is the generic OBD-II DTC for "Cylinder 5 Mis-fire Detected", and it means that the OBD-II control unit has detected a problem with the #5 cylinder.

The problem could be a faulty spark plug, or a spark plug wire for the #5 cylinder, or the coil for that cylinder could be faulty (2.7 liter), or the distributor or distributor cap could be faulty (3.0 liter), or the fuel injector for the #5 cylinder could be faulty.

Before you look for any electrical problems causing the mis-fire on the #5 cylinder, first do a compression check to be certain that the mis-fire is not caused by a mechanical problem.

Here are the firing order diagrams for the 2.7 and the 3.0 liter enginesto help assist you.

2.7 liter


3.0 liter

I would check out the EGR valve. That maybe what is causing all the misfires.
