Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan
When idling..going up hills...sometimes on straight stetches...it seems to act like it's not getting gas for a split second or like the engine is missing...the private dealership said it might be the spark plugs...it's got 85,000 on it...does this seem right??
It sounds right, it is called a light load miss. it occurs mostly at 45-50 mph on slight incline and it feels like a bucking or hesitation. It commonly ocurs when there is carbon tracking on a spark plug porcelin (sp) . note . if the porcelin has carbon tracking so does the plug wire boot. the spark will travel through the carbon track in teh boot after plug replacement causing premature failure of the plug. it is a good idea to replace plugs and wires if this is the cause of your miss.
