The best ideea is to scan your Engine Control Module (ECM) with a diagnosis scantool connected to the Data Link Connector (DLC) of the car. You will find definitely the engine fault code - "P...." and the clear description of the error(s). Also you can try to erase this error(s) from the Engine Control Module (ECM) memory. If errors are "sporadic" type you certain have permission to erase them, also for some kinds of "static" errors.
If you don't have any diagnosis tool, you can also try something else. For check up if the engine have a proper turn, you can successively disconnect each spark plug coil from the engine wiring system, engine idle, car stationary. When you operating this you must be free of chassis ground (battery ground)!!! When you disconnect a spark plug coil and the engine speed (rpm) drops, that means this coil works properly. When one coil disconnected and engine speed (rpm) still remain unaltered, this coil (or spark plug) is out of order. First you can change only the spark plug and check up again. If no changes the coil is defective and must be replaced!
My recommendation is first to change all spark plugs on the engine, and after that check up coils.

04 dodge neon showing P0325 and P0340 codes at same time.


Code 0325 is for a Knock sensor. Code 0340 is for the Cam sensor #1 if this is an engine with 2 heads and it is an indication of a single sensor on single head engines.

So if you do have a multiple hed engine, you may have removed the good sensor and left the bad sensor in the other head.

Remember to wipe the computer memory after installing new parts.

HI, I KNOW THESE ENGINES GOOD! I HOPE YOU HAVE BEEN USING A FL820 MOTORCRAFT OIL FILTER AND 5/20 OIL. IF NOT YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH CAM PHASER'S AND OR TENSIONER'S. THR ENGINE IS A SINGLE OVERHEAD CAM ENGINE WITH VARIABLE CAM TIMING. I HAVE SEEN SEVERAL ENGINES WITH BAD CAM PHASER'S SIMPLY BY ADDING AFTERMARKET FILTER WHICH FALL APART INTERNALLY AND PLUG OIL GALLEYS TO HEAD AND CAUSE CAM PHASER'S TO ACT LIKE YOU'RE ENGINE IS RUNNING RETARTED UNTIL 2K RPM. IF NO NOISE IS HEARD TRY A FUEL PUMP ITS DRAINING DOWN AND COLD STARTS IT'S LIKE LACK OF ADEQUATE FUEL PRESSURE TO INJECTORS. IT'S REALLY SIMPLE. THESE TRUCKS WILL BE YOU'RE BEST FRIEND IF YOU USE AND FORD FILTER AND THE RIGHT OIL AND CHEVRON 87 OCTANE DUE TO THE INJECTOR'S CAN LEAK WITH CHEAP FUEL AND RUN LIKE ****. CHEVRON FOUND TO HAVE ADDITIVE TO KEEP INJECTORS CLEAN AND FUEL SENDER FROM BUILDING SULFUR AND READING FUEL LEVEL IMPROPERLY. HOPE THIS HELPS

I need a diagram to sincronize the timing belt of my isuzu tropper 3.2 sohc


if this is 6VD1 engine it has single cam gear each head, but is still a 2 cams per head, engine
if belt has broke or you have turned any gear you must remove rocker covers to check positions of camshafts front lobes are in certain spot as well as timming mark on belt driven cam gear to cover
this cam gear is a 3:1 ratio (3 turns of cam gear = 1 turn of cams)

Engine vibration


The vibration like comes from a misfiring cylinder when cold, which in turn can have many causes; bad spark plug, bad coil, bad fuel injector, leaking head gasket etc.

With such a major overhaul that you did recently I'd go back to the shop since it can be related to the repair. This is especially true if you see white smoke from the tail pipe.

Good luck!
