P0301 Code - Cylinder #1 Misfire Detected

What does that mean?
A P0301 code means that the the car's computer has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing properly. In this case it's cylinder #1.

Symptoms may include:
* the engine may be harder to start
* the engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitate
* other symptoms may also be present

Causes
A code P0301 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Faulty spark plug or wire
* Faulty coil (pack)
* Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
* Faulty fuel injector
* Burned exhaust valve
* Faulty catalytic converter(s)
* Running out of fuel
* Poor compression
* Defective computer

Possible Solutions
- If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.

- If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Hope this help (remember rated this). Good luck.

SOURCE: replace a catalytic converter for a 1999 dodge stratus

The cat is located just off of the exhaust manifold. You have to remove things to get out of the way. Loosen down pipe to converter and unclamp the converter and it should pull right out. Use a good penetrating oil to help loosen the down pipe bolts.

SOURCE: 1999 dodge stratus belt noise

Your belt may be worn & slipping. Check on the inside of belt for lost belt v grooves. If O.K., you may have a a bearing starting to sieze i.e. on alternator, power stearing, air conditioner condenser, or idler pulley. You will be able to check this by slackening belt & spinning each pulley. Good luck & Merry Christmas!

Why is the check engine light on in my 1999 dodge stratus but is showing no codes


ECM is shorted internally. I've seen it in many makes and models. In different years. If the car runs fine and isn't getting terrible gas mileage. Leave it alone. Just check for codes every couple months, or if the gas consumption goes up. If the light bothers you, do like most, put a piece of tape over it. To fix the problem, you have to replace the ECM and have it programmed.

How do I pull up engine codes on a dodge 1999 stratus using the ignition key?


it's best to check it on a computer,it will give P0000
numbers that will be more accurate then the key.
if you want to use the key,turn the ignition switch on and off three times and then leave on ,and get ready to count light blinks.they will only be three digit numbers
