Anything to indicate possible combustion gasses blowing by badly seated spark plugs? Any carbon soot around or even through the middle of the plugs?

Over voltage is the main reason for this problem. Run the fault codes to check for sensor failure. Remember that coils operate on a pulse and the current used is kept low but if you leave the ignition on ( run the radio-fan,lights etc with out the engine running then the current will overheat the coils/packs.

SOURCE: 1994 Dodge Caravan intermittent missing, loss of power

Number one and four are fired at the same time on a single wire from the PCM. Look for it to be intermittenly grounding somewhere along the route to the coil. You can wiggle the harness with the engine running to see if you can duplicate the miss. This will help to localize the area where you need to look closer. Look at areas where the harness crosses brackets or lays across areas like the transmission. Long term vibration can wear a small hole in the insulation causing intermittent problems on any circuit. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1999 dodge caravan new pcm new crank and cam

If you have replace new cam sensor with no sparks and the coil are good putting out 12 volt, my guess would be the computer it self faulty. cam sensor sense the cam turning and send info to computer telling computer to disperse the charge from the coil pack to the plugs assuming relay, cam sensor, coil, plugs, and wires are good. make sure the cam sensor is put in properly and position.

SOURCE: 2008 dodge caravan 31k miles. I devevelped a drining hum.

Since you are still under warranty, I suggest getting your transmission checked at a dealer. We had to get ours replaced at about 28M miles. It was making wierd noises, especially in a parking lot at low speeds and when turning slowly.

There is no dipstick for the transmission fluid on our model :(

If you recently changed tires, then that could possibly be the noise too.

How can I locate my spark plugs on my 2008 dodge nitro?


The spark plugs are under the coil packs. Remove the screw and pull up on the coil pack you will find the spark plugs there. On a v-6 engine there will be six coil packs three to a side. Just be careful removing the coil pack pull straight up as there is a long plastic plug under it that is the coil wire. Its is better to be safe then sorry just take your time you will be fine.

My coil pack keeps going out in my 2005 dodge caravan.. There is no power going to the coil pack


I don't understand why you would replace the coil if you are not getting power to it.
The coil is powered by the ASD relay. Have you replaced the relay ?
