Best way to check Richards problem is to remove an O2 sensor in front of the catalytic converter. If you get more than 3 miles, replace the cat/s.

P0304 Steady Check Engine


P0304 is a misfire on cly. #4. Pull the plug and see if there is a lot of oil that may be fouling it out. If you are burning oil, one thing you can do is switch to synthetic. Synthetic oil will not burn and it can minimize the loss.


Also if you only replaced one coil pac, you may have a problem there, but that is remote since each coil runs two cylinders and you only have a cly.#4 code.

Hope this helps.

The power loss light kept coming on in our 1985 lebaron. So replaced the battery, still kept losing power, replaced the alternator, still is losing power. What should I be checking next and is it...


the power loss light has nothing to do with the alternator, the power loss light is part of the on-board computer system it is the equivalent of the check engine light on newer cars it is on because one of the sensors is not working on the car.

this is how to retrieve the code that is turning on the light.

turn the key on ( do not crank the engine ) turn the key off, turn the key on, turn the key off, turn the key on. ( never crank the engine ) this all has to be done in les then 10 seconds so to re-cap key on, off,on,off, on.

the power loss light will start flashing. all codes are 2 digit, for example a code will look like this.

flash,flash, pause (about 1 second), flash, flash,flash this code would be a 23 , the first two flashes would be a 2 the pause is the separator the next 3 flashes are a 3 so the code is 23, i hope you under stand.

after you get the code let me know what it is and i will look it up for you....good luck

Replace spark plug wires and plugs. Sometimes old wires will arc to the engine block, causing missfire. Check the wires at night with lights off and engine running, if they're bad, you'll defenitely see them arcing to the engine. if they are...replace.

Your cat is plugged, its not letting your exhaust leave the engine thus causing all these problems. You need to get it changed as soon as possible. You can get a shop to put in a universal one they are usually very cheep but do it soon. They can get hot enough to start a fire as you have already seen.
