Pardon me if im wrong but there might have been a recall on that years model for the IAC motor. may not apply here because i dont know what rpms your at when it happens. Also watch your gas dodges are notorious for water in the gas tanks. I have a 1998 and it still does some of what yours does until it goes to closed loop and its truly warm(have to keep my foot into it until then or it will trip the knock sensor after a while.)This ethanol gas is horrible when you get below a quarter tank. hope this helps

Chrysler 300M p1391 code misfires when hot.


From research Chrysler is having a lot of this same problem. If it were another vehicle I would say it's either ignition module or pickup coils going bad. Some vehicles have had problems with wires to pickup coils (Hall effect coils) getting hot and shorting due bad wire insulation. One cause is oil or dirt getting on pickup coils, cam position sensor, also if cam is worn and moving any that will affect the gap between sensor and cam. You didn't say how many miles were on the car.

How about the pick up coil in the distributor? A trick we used to use back in the day was to tap the distributor housing with a hammer, key word tap. If the engine missed or stalled than the pick-up coil was replaced.

I'm choosing between a 97 Dakota and a 97 Ranger. both are around 140k miles, 5 speed, 4 cylinder, base 2 person models. Same starting price. Which one do you think will cost less to operate and be more...


The ford ranger has less problems,and is easier to work on,and easy to diagnose ,when it does have problems,but for the most part the ranger ,all the way.Ranger does not have a lot of power,but is a very good truck.

1999 S10 Pickup miss fire


Your throttle position sensor should be located on the throttle body opposite of where the throttle cable hooks on too. Look for a small black box on the other side with wires leading into a connector. get your codes read and re post them it could be a simple fix.
