Question about 2001 Dodge Caravan
Replaced coil and still misfires 80% of the time at idle (smooth not rough), voltage is fien, fuel flow is fine. What else could be causinf the problem? Wiring to ECU?
Friend, caravans, town & countrys, and voyagers of these model year group have a known problem that should have been recalled eons ago by Chrysler. The flywheel is a 3 piece flywheel that is welded together. (It should have been a single piece, forged flywheel, if they had made it to last.) The flywheel is about 18 inches in diameter and has the cog (gear tooth ring), spot welded near the outside edge. It has a center circular piece about 5 inches in diameter that is TIG welded. As the outside turns more slowly than the inside and torque stress in transmitted to the inner circle, the stress shears the welds and caused the inner part to shift about 1/8 of a rotation, throwing your timing off. You can either 1) replace the flywheel or 2) buy a rebuilt transmission.
