Question about 2006 Chrysler Pacifica
I put in a bottle of fuel injector cleaner
HAVE IT SERVICED BY A DEALERSHIP. OTHERWISE YOU ARE GOING TO WASTE ALOT OF MONEY AND TIME GETTING IT RIGHT. THEN IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DO IT ON YOUR OWN TAKE A COUPLE OF CLASSES AT A LOCAL VOLTEC ON CAR MAINTENANCE. WATCH ALOT OF VIDEOS ON CAR CAR AND MAINTENANCE, ASK ALOT OF QUESTIONS.

The fuel injection cleaner isn't the problem, it's just a coincidence. If you get the codes checked , I believe you will find that the problem is with your mass air flow sensor which is located between your air cleaner and throttle body. It may just be dirty and in need of cleaning. CRC makes a cleaner for this sensor, and you can do this yourself. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

did you check the throttle position sensor? Or, the fuel filter? the filter on my 92 lebaron is just a canister in front (towards the front of the car) of the gas tank. My tps went bad and it was causing the engine to cut out at random intervals. If you can get a multimeter, i can walk you through checking the tps for correct/wrong readings.

P1444 Purge Flow Sensor Circuit Input Low
The evaporative emission control system checks to make sure there are no leaks in the lines that run from the gas tank to the charcoal canister and up to the engine. It also checks to make sure the gas cap is sealing correctly.
When you fill your car with gas, the vapors in the tank get forced into a canister filled with activated charcoal. Also, on a hot day as the gas heats up and vaporizes, those same vapors push into the canister where they're stored. But the charcoal can only hold so much vapor. At some point it has to be emptied. The emptying process is called "canister purge." Here's how it works.
The computer orders a canister purge by powering open a PURGE solenoid. That opens the vacuum line between the canister and the intake manifold. At the same time, it opens a VENT solenoid. That allows fresh air into the canister. So the engine is literally sucking out the gas vapors and purging the canister with fresh air. The computer has to adapt its fuel strategy to take advantage of all the extra gas vapors coming into the engine.
The computer notices the canister is empty when it detects a leaner condition (all the vapors are used up) and it resumes normal fuel delivery. Some car manufacturers then close the VENT solenoid but leave the PURGE solenoid open. That creates a vacuum throughout the entire fuel storage system. Once the correct vacuum is reached, it closed the PURGE solenoid and waits to see if the vacuum holds. If it doesn, the system passes the test. If it detects a leak, it sets a code.
In this code P1444, the computer sees a lower than expected value on the purge flow sensor. bottom line? replace the purge flow sensor.

I helped a friend with a similar problem on his T&C. No check engine code. It was a dirty MAF sensor.
You can get special MAF spray cleaner at your local auto parts store.
As I recall, the sensor is located between the air fliter and the throttle body.
Remove the sensor from the air inlet.
Spray the sensor, soak, spray, soak, etc. Take your time. But, do NOT scrub it with a brush or cloth. Spray only.
