Question about 2005 Dodge Dakota

Open Question

Multiple missfires on 1,3,5,7 at startup and 7 fouls the plug.

I have had a mechanic sheck the problem with his scanner and the indication was multiple plug misfires on 1, 3, 5, and mainly 7 with a lot of carbon build up on 7 in one day. He thought the problem was the coil so I replaced # 7 coil and nothing changed. The scanner showed the missfires stopped after a few minutes and the engine runs fine but the ck engine light continues to come on after a few stops and starts.

SOURCE: P0300 multiple cylinder missfire

You need a tune up... plugs, should have individual coils per cylinder, so just replacing plugs is all you need to do... that will fix it..

Check the EGR valve. Replacing the EGR valve fixed my error code for misfiring. I also had to remove the battery cable for 5 minutes to turn off the check engine light.

1995 chevy blazer fouling on number 2 cylinder

with this issue , fouling can mean many things, i,ll assume, & i don,t like assuing at all, ? i,ll assume you mean missfiring inderperforming two different issues, two answers, (1) missfiring ,ok change all plugs and remove and overhaul number two injector, replace it,, (2) fouling,? under performing, this can have a few causes i,ll list all, pressure loss in cylinder due to either worn piston rings or valve seatings, or head gasket,?(a) piston rings, luckily this is probably not the problem as usually all 6 cylinders would be effected, (b) valve seatings , hope its not this as it,s a major opperation involving removing the cylinder head an totally reconditoning it, all valves cleaning and reseating, replacing vavle seals , new head gasket ,inlet manifold gaket , exhaust manifold gasket, a good mechanic can get away with changing only the head gasket, but that ain.t you,unfortunatly, so hope its (a) peter.

What could be causing multiple engine missfires

This could be one of many things:

1. Bad or dirty spark plugs. Oil could be getting on the plug tips and fouling the plugs.

2. Bad plug wires. Wires are arching and causing the plugs not to fire properly.

3. Bad electronic ignition. This could be a bad module,

4. Dirty fuel injectors.

5. Cam Sensor is bad. This usually happens after the car warms up.

6. PCM (Powertrain Control Module) could be failing

7. More more more

Check or have checked the OBD codes and verify the exact problem. This will tell you the cause and you can resolve the problem based on this result.

2005 GMC Yukon 1500 XLT Getting following codes: 131,171,307 Started immediately after replacing fuel pump Wondering if related- maybe dirt in filter or something. Missing on 1 cylinder (7)

Codes P0131 and P0171 indicate the fuel system is lean at least on bank #1.P0307 indicates a missfire on #7 cylinder. Tou didn't indicate if you replace the fuel filter when you replaced the pump. If not that would be the first thing to do. Beyond that you'll have to check the fuel system for pressure and volume. If that's OK you could have a weak O2 sensor on bank #1. If fuel system checks out you'll have to check #7 plug, wire, coil, etc,

I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer 4.3 . It is running bad . I used an OBD II scanner and it pulled up a PO300 code which suggests a Laundry list of things that could be wrong . ...

p0300 should be multiple missfire. check for compression these engines tend to bend valves very easily if ran on old gas or a batch of bad gas. causing it to missfire in more than one cylinder. they also crack heads between valves if overheated.

Chevy suburban 5.3 2006 random missfire on all cylinders

Have you used all the gas that was previously in the tank, It sounds like you have a slight water in the gas. If you haven't used any gas since it started this, then I would drain it out and re-fill it. Also what type of plugs are you running, this will have an impact on how the engine performs. Some people use the most expensive platinum plug and the engine will only perform with the mid platinum or the OEM. I have seen a lot of cars like this and once the plugs are changed to a OEM or a little better plug, the problems go away. Good luck.

99 5.2 durango :pulled codes for multipe missfire cylinder #5-7

Aloha We have just replaced all of what you have replaced, plus water pump, fuel pump, pcv valve and 02 sensor. Took it to mechanic today we had misfire on 1,2,6,7. Mechanic said that the 99 dodge is known for bad computers, he checked ours and works great turns out that it was the coil. Ours was jumping 1/4 inch and had a orange/yellow spark. it is supposed to have a 1 inch spark and be blue. This has solved our problems after 527 dollars later.
Check the coil!
