Check engine light came on and I had pep boys test it. These codes came back PO0303 and PO0171 how do I fix it?

P0303 is a misfire on cylinder 3 - check the ignition and injector on that cylinder.
P0171 means engine is running lean (probably related to the above).
Start by checking the tune of the engine, verifying with a timing light that all cylinders have spark. Since these are coil over plug, swapping cylinder 2 with cylinder 3 should result in P0302 in addition to P0303 DTCs being set. If there's a problem with the VVT (Variable Valve Timing system) then there should be a DTC associated with that as well.

If you have spark, then it goes on towards a faulty injector. If both spark and fuel are present, it's possible that the VVT (Variable Valve Timing) system is freewheeling cylinder 3. Usually that implies the hydraulic lifter seals are faulty though there should be a noticeable valve tap at idle.

In any case, testing out ignition then fuel then ruling out VVT-related issues should resolve the problem completely. I have seen many of these have problems with the plumbing to the valve lifters getting clogged and that results in a dead cylinder.

I need the layout numbers of spark plugs on block and the firing order for a 1951 dodge pickup

I'm guessing that you have a 6 cylinder, because that is the only engine my book shows for 1951. The cylinders would be numbered in order from front to back. The firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4. Hope this helps.

The coil pack in front to the right will be 3-7-1. and to the left it is 2-4-6. On the rear coil pack to the right it is 9-5. And to the left on rear coil pack it will be 8-10.

1999 Dodge Caravan with a code 23. What does that

OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description
A P0020-023 code refers to the VVT (variable valve timing) or VCT (variable camshaft timing) components and the car's PCM (powertrain control module). That consists of an oil control valve (OCV), also called a solenoid valve and other components. Basically the check engine light and associated P0020-023 trouble code means that the voltage in the circuit has fallen below a set limit for a specific amount of time (varies by make/model/engine). Bank 2 is the side of the engine that doesn't contain cylinder #1.

A code P0020-023 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty oil control valve (OCV)
  • Open or short in the VVT/VCT circuit
  • Open or short in the OCV / solenoid valve
  • Damaged computer (PCM)
Possible Solutions
Some recommended troubleshooting and repair steps are:
  • Carefully inspect the Bank 2 VVT/VCT system circuit wiring and connectors, repair as required
  • With a warm engine, test the operation of the OCV, replace/repair as needed
