It has to do either with your spark plugs, ignition coil or wires.
try changing them

    then check your ignition wires " spark plug wires "

    and your coil.

    the missfire is made by one of the three.

    plugs, wires, coil

98 dodge ram 1500 5.9L 2wd got misfire codes. Changed cap, rotor, wires, plugs, manifold gasket, TPS, truck still stalls when driving and won't start. Check engine light doesn't come on anymore. Help?


Retest it and post all the codes received, also do a engine running fault code test (requires a full function scan tool). Check for engine vacuum leaks and check the EGR valve for leaking.

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

Check for faulty fuel pump in a 98 expedition


A faulty fuel pump will do one of three things:
  1. Fail to run whatsoever, you will have 0 fuel pressure
  2. Run, but is worn to the point it won't hold pressure, your car will read low fuel pressure, it will spit sputter, seem to idle, but fails to run engine at speed.
  3. Develope an internal electrical short which will allow the pump to run as long as the tank is full with cool gas to keep the pump cool, but will fail to run properly when the tank is 1/2 full, 1/4 full etc.. usually starts to fail when gas gauge reaches a certain lvl.

1998 dodge stratus stalls while driving if gas tank is half empty


You need to check fuel pressure carefully. This happens when tank is so full of dirt that the pump screen gets clogged. After sitting down several minutes, some of the dirt settles and the car can be restarted, but happens again. Refrain from starting to change every sensor without knowing what is the real cause, because you could be thowing money and not fixing it. Aldo check pressure regulator is functioning correctly.

Dodge stratus misfire, runs rough has random misfires in cylinder 1,3,and 5 and a vacuum leak, I,m not too worried about the leak unless it is related to the misfire


I WOULD REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR.MARK LOCATION OF ROTOR OR MAKE NOTE SO YOU CAN INSTALL NEW ROTOR IN CORRECT FIRING POSITION. IF THIS CAR HAS A LOT OF MILES I WOULD REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP, ROTOR.SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES.REPLACE IGNITION COIL.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS, FILL GAS TANK UP TO 3/4 TO FULL TANK OF GAS POUR CAN SEAFOAM IN FUEL TANK IT WILL FLUSH OUT THE FUEL INJECTORS WHILE ENGINE RUNNING OR DRIVING CAR. REPLACE FUEL FILTER. REASON I SAY DO A TUNE UP PROBLEM COULD BE MINOR FIX.COULD NEED TUNE UP.IF TUNE UP DONT HELP THEN YOUR PROBLEM IS DISTRIBUTOR OR THE CAMSHAFT SENSOR INSIDE OF DISTRIBUTOR.THAT WOULD SET OFF CHECK ENGINE LIGHT.BUT I WOULD SAY TUNE UP COULD FIX PROBLEM.

1998 Dodge stratus ran out of gas - filled tank but car won't start now


I had the same problem with my 98 Stratus.....i ran out of gas and wouldn't start afterwards....checked the pump because i thought maybe it overheated due to running without fuel in it to cool it.......but that wasn't it.....It turned out that the crud in the bottom of the tank went and plugged the fuel filter up.....changed the filter and voila......it's good as new.....hope this helps you out.... =-)

Some things to check since it has sat so long.
Bad gas Fuel filter dirty injectors dirty throttle body
The p300 code is a multiple cylinder misfire code. It sounds to me from what you described, that you are having some type of fuel pressure issues.
