2002 Dodge Caravan that's misfiring

I have a 2002 Dodge Caravan that would not pass smog so I took it to a mechanic and he gave it a tune up. We had to take the van back to mechanic because it was misfiring and now the mechanic is saying that I need some type of harness?

Seems that mechanic likes job security to me.!!!! when you do a tune up and comes back misfering all us mechanics know that is a defected spark plug or in most cases the spark cable came loose or rubbed on something hot or it came loose. if you have the van at home turn it on at night comptly somewhere dark and stare at the engine and youll see static runnning loose like thunders at night and you ll see the problem. then use a flash light and check what happening. or youll will also hear like a whipping sound, i helped people in the past so many times this way remotely and it has helped them.

I have code P0704 transmission how can i diagnos and repair problem?

Well code 704 is usually found on vehicles with a manual trans. The code means the computer is not getting a signal from the clutch switch.
You may need to check a Caravan shop manual to find out if that code exists on automatic trans models.

Check engine lite was on changed right bank 02sensor took back to be smogged still didn't pass shows the other 02sensors gave acitivity but the one i changed does not . this make 3 times i have change

Probably something in the wiring harness or the engine computer.
A mechanic would watch the data stream from the O2 sensors to troubleshoot. You should also have trouble codes for the sensor in question.
