Van just stopped running on highway and rotor not turning

This shouldn't really be in computers. It's either a fuel or ignition system issue. If it doesn't studder or feel like it's shaking when the issue happens then more likely ignition. Could be Spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap or if it has a newer ignition system coil packs are typical causes of your issue.

Rough idle while in park, cutting out on highway

It could be something as simple as a vacuum line,but sounds fuel related. Possible pump.get a fuel pressure reading done and if pressure doesn't hold.....suspect fuel pump

2000 plymouth neon 113k miles misfire in cylinder #2 code read out by autozone. car feels like it studders when accelerating to get on the highway. i replaced all spark plugs...doing the wires tomarrow...

Not the spark plugs at all

Unless a wire burnt out,not that
You only get one of them in 50 years of driving

That leaves the ignition module,if you have one
or an individual coil for #2 if that applies

You can not have O2 Sensors in there over 100,000
miles or they slow down or quit. There goes your fuel
trim & thus your misfires as well

Clean your MAF Sensor
Check for vacuum leaks,every where on the car

I know how to convert km,I grew up in Ontario,500 miles
from here in N.J.
Point is ,10 years is too long on those O2 sensors, loose them

I have a 79 cj5, I had the distributor changed but it wont speed past 45mph. my mechanic now says it my be the carb.

I would think that a fuel pressure test was done, also check for a good solid blue spark from spark plugs, when you guess it cost money, what is the truck doing ?

Engine seemed to skip at about 70 mph and service engine light came on. Then seemed to skip several more times at different speeds. Ran fine. Just continued to skip as we drove.

hi the engine is not skipping the problem is the engine is miss firing
that is caused by a bad .spark plug or -wires-or coil pack - when was the last time the
car had a tune up . check spark plug connections
