SOURCE: 2003 dodge caravan se, as i slow down to 30mph my car jerks

if its happening as the transmission is downshifting .. you may want to bring it to a local dealer and have the controller reprogram for that problem ..most dealers will reflash it for free since it is covered under 8year 80k federal emissions

SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Intrepid engine jerks, cuts off when slows down/stops

Amattison:

Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.

SOURCE: Cam sensor causing other probelems

the cam sensor definitly can cause the problem. pull the trouble code and make sure the check engine light is for the cam sensor. if so, replace it and retest

SOURCE: my 03 dodge neon has jumped time. What do I need

Most mechanics would pull the spark plugs and check the compression in the cylinders, but usually anyone with a trained ear can tell by the sound of the starter when cranking against the compression of each cylinder. Many of the smaller engines today have valving designed so that when they are out of time, the pistons interfere with them. That means two objects try to take up the same space at the same time and at minimum the valves bend. Worse case scenario would be upper head/camshaft damage and possible piston damage. That's pretty severe. You won't know until you get the valve cover off or maybe deeper. Hope that helps.

95 Tracker 1st to 2nd shift issue (automatic)


Would start by checking linkage or the cable that runs to tranny. Tranny fluid level is correct? Check fluid level first. Run 15-20 mins and check with motor warmed and running

Bad idle on my 1995 GMC Jimmy. 4.3 Vortec CPI 4x4. 163k miles. When I turn the truck over, fires right up, and then goes into a sick idle cycle. The idle throttles from 500RPM to about 1500RPM and...


Unfortunetly....these spider injectors and fuel pumps can have very similar symptoms when failing. What I do know is I work on this motor more than any other motor in my shop. Very common with fuel problems...and I can comfortably tell you that they updated the injector kits on these car for a reason. The original model is junk. I have done these on just about every one of my cutomers vehicles over 150,000 miles. However, I am not going to tell you that is your problem....but it sounds fuel related. Did/does your vehicle skip? Leaking injectors will usually cause a skip due to shortage of fuel to that cylinder. I also have a computer that allows me to monitor the firing of each cylinder, and do an injector kill test. This is what I would do first. Unfortunetly, sounds like you can't so start with this: Clean your throttle body. The pintle that the IAC motor pushes in and out goes into a small port. Spray that port out with carb clean. Get a fine wire brush and get that throttle body clean and shinny. That pintle can easily stick on existing carbon in that port...new part or not. Check for vacuum leaking with carb clean...spray it around the intake and vacuum hoses...see if any particular spot changes how it runs when you spray it. Do you have a vacuum gauge? what is manifold vacuum? Since you are in the intake...make sure your puddled fuel is not due to pulling the main lines off the the injector assembly. After intake is off. hook fuel lines and harnes back up to injector assembly. key up (no start) vehicle...this pressurizes fuel system. look for leaking. The fuel pressure regulator is built on to the side of that assembly....its the round diaphragm with the tube coming out of it. If it leaks fuel out...that may be your problem. And you can replace that without doing the whole injector kit...fairly cheap. If not fixed....what is your fuel pressure. You need to have 60-64 PSI at key up. Try the carbon build up and intake test first...both quick, easy, and cheap. If this is not your issues...its sounds fuel related....just want to confirm that you don have a misfire/skip. That could change diagnosis quite a bit. Keep me posted....more than happy to help. By the way....I own all GM's too...lol...haven't learned my lesson yet
