Check the vacuum lines for leaks first,since the cruise uses vacuum to pull on the gas pedal, and ac controls use vacuum to work the baffle doors in the ductwork..then start looking for loose connections on these 3 itemsrepost findings

My car runs only on 5 cylinders. During a check-up it showed that cylinder 5 doesn't get any gas. I have checked the thing that gets the gas into the cylinders by switching place on them.

I have mesured that all the cables are whole, even the dead earth. I have switched the controller box with an exactly the same numberwise, and still cylinder 5 doesn't get any fuel.

By starting all the 6 cylinders get gas at the same time but then it starts to go round between the cylinders but skips cylinder 5.

You should definitely replace the fuel filter though this probably won't fix your hesitation. It wouldn't hurt to replace the spark plugs this is usually the culprit on these engine. I have the same engine in a '99 caravan and found the for some reason the spark plugs on cylinder 3 and 4 loosen up after one year and cause a misfire between 45 and 50 mph under load (when mildly accelerating).

SOURCE: 2000 dodge caravan turn signal switch won't work

Try the Combo Flasher. It is located in the Junction Block in the drivers area under the dash. You may have to pull off the knee panel to get at it. If you're vehicle is equipped with "Daylite Running Lamps" it will be part of that relay. Located in the same spot only a bigger relay. With the window - do the interior lites dim when it has issues going up? If so it is probably drawing to much amperage thus the motor. If not then the switch probably has poor contacts and needs replacing. Good Luck.

there is no up shift sensor or down shift sensor,
there is a output sensor,input sensor,speed sensor,
you need to have your TCM checked to see which of these are at fault.

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

If you have done basic tune up stuff, I would check fuel pressure with gauge installed and running down the highway. Other possibles are bad ignition module, loose wire somewhere in coil circuit, bad fuel pump, filter, many others.

You should still take it and get the computer scanned for trouble codes.
If the check engine light comes on for more than 10 seconds there should be codes set.
