Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus
On a 1998 dodge stratus 2.4 ltr replaced the cracked head with a freshly reconditioned head. after assembly checked compression, about 220lbs on all 4 cylinders. Started vehicle and when it comes down on idle motor shakes pretty badly like a miss. Pulled plugs wires while running and found #1 cylinder shows no very little to no change when pulled. New plugs plenty of spark changed fuel injectors with no improvement. Fuel pressure is at 50 to 60 but vacuum is around 13 inches. I let the car run for 30 minutes but no codes came up. What should I look for as the problem with #1 cylinder?
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.
