Clean the value out with carb cleaner instead of replacing.

The oil from the valve cover gets pushed through the valve. The valves tend to get stuck easily.
I would suggest K&N oil breather/filter instead of PCV valve.

Random misfires are some of the trickiest problems to solve, usually an ignition system problem a bad or weak coil pack or possibly a spark plug wire. If not the ignition system then surely a clogged injector.

Dodge Caravan 2000, 3 l engine, 109000 km/ mechanical valve lifters that are out of adjustment


The next time you do an oil change, put a liter of tranny fluid in with the oil BEFORE you change it. Let it run for an hour or two.The tranny fluid will clean out the gunk that causes your lifters to stick.Now do your oil change. Do this each time you change your oil, only use a 1/2 liter each time. You will be amazed at the difference, I was.
