You left out alot of info. We need more to be able to help you. What caused the fire, etc. Did you already check your fuses ( both under the dash and under the hood)? Is your check engine light temporarily coming on when you turn the key on? Can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key on?

Make sure that you have the plugs and leads and the firing order correct. Here is a diagram:-

First time changing fuel injector seals. i turned the switch to far the car backfired and caught on fire. i put the fire out with a dry chemical the intake was open. i changed all the wires and the spark...


When you replace the seals for fuel injectors, it's a good idea to soak the rubber seals in gasoline before installing them. This will help the rubber to swell a bit. Remove your battery connection before working on your car if you couldn't find your fuel pump relay. This give you fire insurance.

Maybe you fried your ign control module. If dry chemical went inside the intake you'll have to clean that up preventing it getting sucked inside the combustion chamber. If you fire this inside, you might bend a valve, damage your cat converter, damage your 02 sensors, damage your exhaust valve.

Working with fuel is risky, even if fire or sparks are not present it can ignite from compressing the mixture. Maybe you should buy more insurance. Remember a real mechanic may not know how each and every car works but knows every danger involved while working on it. Safety first. Cut all power before screwing around electrical work.

1999 Dodge Intrepid 2.7L Replaced starter,


Here is a pic of a schrader valve. They all look about the same.3.jpg
If there isn't much pressure, cycle the ignition without turning the engine over and try again. If it is still weak, you may need a new fuel filter. If it is strong, you may have dirty or clogged fuel injectors.

It may be spark, but I'm inclined to think it is fuel related.

Good luck, and keep us in the loop!

P0304* Cylinder #4 Misfire on a 1999 dodge intrepid. were is this cylinder located.


This would be the forth cylinder from the front(where the pulleys,and belts are).There will be a coil,and under the coil,is a boot,connected to the spark plug.The miss fire could be any,of the three.I would replace the spark plugs (all four)and the boots.Then if the miss fire is still there,replace the coil,on number four cylinder.

Engine light keeps comeing on mecanic change o2 senser worked for half hour came back on cods keep saying its miss fireing have had this problem for a month know


Start Small work to Big = Saved Money!
The Code(s) should be telling the specific cylinder(s) that are misfiring. Do you know waht the code is?
Target those cylinders 1st before testing the unaffected cylinders.
The following should isolate the problem(s).
1. Spark plugs - take out-reconnect back to wires and test spark plugs for getting sparks. If none: Don't replace them yet. GO TO 2. If the spark plugs are worn, dirty them replace them.
2. Remove spark plugs form end of ignition wires and test for spark from the wire. If none: Don't replace them yet. GO TO 3.
3. Remove the wires from the coil connection and test the coil for spark for each cylinder. If none: Don't replace it yet.
4. Test each spark plug and wires this way.
5. Coil Packs normally provide fire for 2-cylinders at the same time. The two are paired across from one another.
6. Test the coil for fire, amount of fire and if there is both cyclinders firing.
Misfire and the O2 Sensor got replaced??
Good Luck and get back with me if you need additional help or if this solved the problem.

Check engine light flashing


if the check engine light flashes than the pcm has detected a mis-fire with enough severity to cause catalyst damage.

you should have the vehicle scanned to fnd out which cylinder is mis-firing,

most likely cause is faulty spark plugs or spark plug wires.

good luck
