Miss fire #6 cyl 2000 dodge 3500 van 5.9 egine


100 PSI is way to low, I think you have a burnt valve. Check the cylinder compression on all cylinders, no cylinder should be 5% lower than the highest cylinder pressure measured or the engine will run rough or misfire.

I have a 2003 dodge stratus rt coupe it is misfiring on cylinder one all I want to know is on the distributor cap where is it located OR are the distributor caps for dodges numbered differently


Look at all the spark plug connections on the cap. There should be a raised number 1 next to the connector. You can also take out the #1 spark plug , turn the engine by hand with your thumb over the spark plug hole and when compression pushes your thumb off the hole watch the timing mark on the dampener. When the mark lines up with the TDC mark then the rotor on the distributor is pointing to #1 spark plug wire.

I have a 2000 Dodge Stratus with a random misfire on 1,3 and 5. The engine runs fine besides a twitch in the motor that can be felt while idling. Already replaced plugs and wires. Suggestions?


get the OBD codes read this will tell you which switch/sensor is causing the issue , the last random misfire i encountered turned out to be low cylinder compression so if the OBD code says " random misfire " then get the cylinder compressions read , hope this helps

It has a misfire ,we changed the plugs and the coil pack and wires still has a misfire what else could it be


Gas or compression. Check the injector circuit on 1 and 3. Are they pulsing, to put gas in the cylinders? Do a compression test to rule out loss of compression as cause for the misfire.
Kind of odd it would be 1 and 3, but that is one right after the other in the firing order of 1-3-4-2...so, you have a single coil? So you have a distributor-examine closely the distributor cap and rotor if those were not changed too, with the plugs and wires. Look for damage, little black tracks that indicate shorting of the spark, maybe damage at the electrode tips on the inside of cap on 1 and 3 plug wire towers. Most people change the cap and rotor when doing the plugs and plug wires.
Just a possibility also, that the injector ground wires for 1 and 3 might share the same ground. That is to say, they might splice together before going to the computer where the computer internally grounds injector circuits to cause pulsing. Well, those are my thoughts, good luck. And let me know what you find, always interested.

Dodge stratus misfire, runs rough has random misfires in cylinder 1,3,and 5 and a vacuum leak, I,m not too worried about the leak unless it is related to the misfire


I WOULD REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR.MARK LOCATION OF ROTOR OR MAKE NOTE SO YOU CAN INSTALL NEW ROTOR IN CORRECT FIRING POSITION. IF THIS CAR HAS A LOT OF MILES I WOULD REPLACE DISTRIBUTOR CAP, ROTOR.SPARK PLUGS AND WIRES.REPLACE IGNITION COIL.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS, FILL GAS TANK UP TO 3/4 TO FULL TANK OF GAS POUR CAN SEAFOAM IN FUEL TANK IT WILL FLUSH OUT THE FUEL INJECTORS WHILE ENGINE RUNNING OR DRIVING CAR. REPLACE FUEL FILTER. REASON I SAY DO A TUNE UP PROBLEM COULD BE MINOR FIX.COULD NEED TUNE UP.IF TUNE UP DONT HELP THEN YOUR PROBLEM IS DISTRIBUTOR OR THE CAMSHAFT SENSOR INSIDE OF DISTRIBUTOR.THAT WOULD SET OFF CHECK ENGINE LIGHT.BUT I WOULD SAY TUNE UP COULD FIX PROBLEM.

On a 1998 dodge stratus 2.4 ltr engine misfire


check compression,with engine running remove h/t leads 1 at a time to diagnose weak cylinder,check that cylinder has the same amount of spark ( jumps the same gap as others )try changing the plug from crook cylinder to a good one and note if miss follows that spark plug or stays with same cylinder,can do same with injectors but only perform one procedure at a time so you can determine which one works.

1997 Dodge Stratus, 2.5L 4 cyl engine. Engine diagnosis from a trouble reader = cylinder 3 misfiring. The plug and spark plug wire are good. I don't know how too test the electronic ignition or the fuel...


Test the compression in that cylinder. Make sure you have the correct plugs, and good wires, as well as the cap and rotor button. If you have good compression, and the plugs and all are good, I would suspect either a bad fuel injector, bad head, or a bad distributor.
