If you know which cylinder is misfiring, pull the valve cover on that side. Check for broken valve spring. The valve cover gasket is reusable. I had same issue on v8.

Need some more info on some diagnostic codes that came up on my truck & how to fix them. P0137 o2 sensor, P0300 random multi miss, P0303 cylinder 3, P0306 cylinder 6, P0307 cylinder 7


Replace your O2 Sensor and Spark Plug Wires. If you still have the Random Misfire, replace your Spark Plugs, then Replace your Distributor Cap and Rotor. If you still have the Random Misfire you may have a Timing Problem, or Ignition Coil problem.

Dodge 98 ram 1500, . got new battery, changed the fuel pump, relay okay, fuse okay.. new idle/air valve new plugs, wires, coil, distributor, cap, got gas in it.. will start, but a few minutes later will...


I would take a look at the plugs and see if they are fouled. You might have a bad fuel pressure regulator. Also, the control module or pick up coil could be bad.

Check engine light


A multi misfire may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wires, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty oxygen sensor(s), Faulty fuel injector(s), Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages, Faulty camshaft position sensor, Defective computer.

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 wire, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the the problems were faulty fuel injectors. 

Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

Good luck and hope this information helps, keep me posted, be glad to help you get the truck running 100% again. Not sure if your running a K&N air filter, and if you are there may be a flim of oil on the MAF sensor that is making you run lean. You may want to spray down the MAF sensor with a can of MAF cleaner.
