Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
Changed plugs, wires, and cap. Check engine light on. Has leaked gas under truck near front floor board area.
This code is for a random misfire. It can be from any cylinder. If the plugs etc doesn't correct the problem it may be a bad injector/wiring. Are there any other codes? You will have to try and isolate which cylinder/s are causing the problem and diagnose from there

OBD II 300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
When the misfire monitor detects a misfire, it will trigger the check engine light with the specific cylinder number as the last digit in the P030X code. For instance cylinder 1 misfire is P0301, cylinder 2 is P0302 etc. In this case we have either multiple cylinders misfiring, or the computer simply can't determine the specific cylinder, and as such we are left with the P0300 in computer memory.

SOURCE: P0171 code and P0301 misfire.
I have a similar problem. I'm replacing the fuel pump and might get an aftermarket coil. The coil on my 5.2L Dakota is right behind the radiator on the front right side of the engine. Stupid spot! I'm surprised it hasn't melted!

With the truck running, spray some water with a spray bottle on the wires and cap, also spray the coil. See if you can make it misfire by doing this. It may help to have a helper in the truck with it idling in gear. You may hav egotten a bad wire or plug, too. I find these run pretty decent with the Champions like they came with.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE WIRES ON THE RIGHT PLUGS.YOU MAY NEED TO GET THE CODES SCANNED TO NARROW DOWN YOUR PROBLEM BUT I THINK IT'S A FIREING ORDER PROBLEM.IF THIS IS NOT THE CASE THEN DO A COMPRESSION TEST ON THE MOTOR TO SEE IF YOU NEED TO GO DEAPER.
