Question about 2004 Dodge Durango
I've had p2317 before and it seems we are taking the Durango into the shop every couple months when we haven't driven it that much, as its a towing and spare vehicle for us. When I took it in last time, they replaced map sensor, all 16 spark plugs, and throttle body for the issue that it had at the time(according to the codes). Today they said with those 3 codes listed the suspect coil is going bad. Are they trying to just take my $ and "shotgun" parts in or what?!
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Check all plugs and wires..If they are grounding out it will make it miss.Also check for vacuum leaks..Hope this helps you..Have a great day..

yes i would change the plug wires , you can take a spray bottal with water and spray that wire, and if it starts to run real bad then it is shorting out, you may also have a injector going bad you can test this buy puting a ohms meter on it and ck the ohms it should read the same or close to the same as the other if not it will need replaced

From your description it sounds like your ECU is believing you are at Wide Open Throttle (WOT) when conditions are to the contrary.
MAP sensor is a good place to start, but their failure rate is seldom, Id be more apt to look at the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), and while you are at it take a look at the throttle stop and AIS motor/sensor too.
When you open and close the throttle from the throttle body is there hesitation, does it open/close all the way, etc? If you answered "yes" to any of those, look at your throttle stop and kick down (if automatic)
I'd Check the injector too while I'm at it. Does it pulse constantly? There may be a ground issue. or a problem with the ECU.
Another place to look: On the smaller engines with TBIs the male connector cable likes to rock in out of the receptacle. make sure it's tight.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: 97 dodge ram no spark
then i would replace whats called the hall effect sensor its that black plastic plate you see when you take dist cap off. just pull rotor and lift up the sensor.dist cap is what holds it on.also under the sensor will be a stamped sheet metal piece that looks like the top of a castle wall. make sure its not loose on the shaft.if it is then new dist will be needed

You still have random misfires (PO300)
You most likely replaced those coils that set a code, and those were not the one bad offender,spiking the computer module.
Take a new coil and put in a cylinder,no change, replace old coil and move new one to next cylinder. You can do that once or twice a day, if you have nothing else to do. You need a 90 degree day, to really get that solved,unless you have an ignition oscilloscope.
Never had a bad spark plug in 45 years.
