Question about 1999 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Cylinder six misfiring

That's the message when I scan to see why the 'check engine' light is lit.
I have done a tune up -plugs, wires rotor, cap and have just finished replacing the fuel injector in cylinder #6.
Problem is it's running as rough as it was before it was "fixed".
How do I troubleshoot this?
Could be the wiring harness or who knows what else?

    Yeah, that's the last resort.

  • Curt Tresenriter Apr 29, 2009

    The problem was that I had the throttle body gasket installed upside down - allowing a lot of air in.
    While turning it around I found that I had also failed to plug in the MAP sensor.
    Cleared the trouble code and the problem seems to be resolved.

4.3 check engine light flashes with code303


Do you mean p0303? And on a gm 4.3l V6? If so this is a cylinder 3 misfire. Cylinder 3 is the back drivers side cylinder. You will need to check the plug and wire. A compression test to rule out any I ternary problem would be advisable as well. Compression test needs to be done on all 6 cylinders. The results should fall in a range of +/- 10%. There are tons of causes for this from ignition module, wire, plug, injector or fuel delivery, bad map/maf sensor, valves problem, ring problem etc.

2000 trail blazier with random misfire,sulfur smell, glowing convertor. New cap,rotor button plugs,plug wires and convertor NO CHANGE ! ANY IDEAS ?


Is the check engine light lit ? Any DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ? What engine ? 4.3 L vortex . Leaking fuel pressure regulator under the upper intake manifold . Leaking fuel injectors ! Ignition timing problem . How does the engine run ? Who installed the plugs an wires ? are they right ? Fuel pressure leak down test, fuel injector balance testing . Check distributor drive gear an slop in the shaft . Did you have distributor out ? Is it in the proper position ? What cylinder is misfiring ? engine mechanical problem ! What do spark plugs look like ? fouled , soaked with fuel . Do a engine compression test .
The camshaft drives the distributor shaft which rotates providing a spark to the correct cylinder by way of the cap and rotor. The camshaft position sensor functions much like the crankshaft sensor previously described but provides only a 1x signal to the VCM. That is, for every 2 rotations of the crankshaft, there is 1 rotation of the camshaft. Note that the CMP sensor will not affect driveability. The sole purpose of the CMP sensor is to provide the VCM with the necessary information for the misfire DTCs.

Check engine light comes on and code is for misfire on cylinder 1. Which is cylinder 1?


the first thing you want to do is a full tune up plugs, wire, cap rotor and you might want to have your EGR looked at at the same time

Good Luck!

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.

1)all spark plugs
2)do a oil change
3)spark plug wires
3)distributor cap and rotor

note misfire can be cause by:
1.bad gas
2.spark plug and/or wire
3.distributor cap and/or rotor
4.valve adjustment
5.injector
6.off timing
7.ECM
8.bad wiring(power, ground or feed line)

I would change the following in this order if your are tight on money...if not you could have it done all at once.

1. Change Spark plugs (most likely cause of the misfire)
2. Change Spark plug wires
3. Change Rotor Button (this is inside the distributor cap)

All three are fairly easy processes. I would try this first before giving up on the engine. Hope this helps.
