Pull the spark plugs. If you find a wet plug or dirty plug that is the cylinder that is causing the miss. Could it be bad plug or bad coil or injector. Check that cylinder for spark.if that all checks out do compression test. Could be valve problem. If it wasn't missing before it was taken apart check timing. Could be off one tooth on timing gear.

May have not reconditioned the heads correctly may have a valve issues because the valve spring is bad or could be an injector or gaskets could be leaking on intake manifold could be a lot of different things that could have happened when they serviced the heads. Best thing to do is compression check find out the range for your compression to be at on the gague. That will tell you what’s possibly happening inside the engine. But you have to look in a chilton or haynes repair manual it will tell you what’s up when you read the compression testing gague.

Hello
Welcome to FY
Check the reverse light switch located on the transmission. It is located by the shift lever housing on the transmission.
also there is a 10 amp fuse in your power distribution center for this too.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: rusty anti freeze came pouring under my 2005 dodge caravan

I hope you're not driving it...They're called freeze plugs, and they are for when you have added too much water (not enough anti-freeze) to the system and it gets too cold, the freeze plug should pop out before the block cracks (very expensive). The extra water content also helps the plug to rust. They're relatively cheap, and not too hard to replace (if you can get to it without pulling the engine). I'm not sure about the Dodge, but most plugs are a press fit, meaning you simply put the plug up to the hole (make sure the old plug is out), take a small block of wood to evenly distribute the force to push the new plug in, and tap it in with a hammer until it is flush with the block. And make sure to fill your radiator with a 50/50 solution of water and anti-freeze...

Make sure the mechanic replaced your head bolts. Do not re use old head bolts. Then verify your compression at each cylinder, then you can move on to other possibilities. If you have good pressure and the torque sequence was followed, then check the basics; spark plugs, wires, and your coil pack. (I think you have a coil pack, not a cap) My money is on your coil pack. There is many things it could be, but this gives you a starting point.

My 2000 dodge caravan engine was run very hot and now i have coolant leaking out of the muffler. dose this mean i have a blown head gasket.i do not have any fluid mixed with the oil. please help....thanks


If you have coolant leaking out of the muffler the head gasket is most likely blown. The head gasket has passageways through it for coolant water, exhaust, intake and engine oil. Depending on which location the gasket has ruptured you can mix fluids or gasses in several combinations. The only way coolant can get to the exhaust is through a cracked head or blown head gasket. If the head is cracked and another head is installed a new head gasket is installed because reusing a used gasket is very risky. The only to be sure what is broken is to take the heads off. If only the head gasket is blown the head is usually warped and should at least be milled if not replaced. I hope this helps.

blown head gasket. do not start the vehicle until this is fixed. running with a blown head gasket can lock up the engine.

White smoke from exhaust


White smoke is a sign of bad head gasket, did your car over heat, if so blown head gasket, any auto repair shop can do a block test, this will let you know if cylinder head gasket is bad.

White smoke from motor


Checking oil when it's HOT with mask the coolant oil mix formation.
Check the oil when the engine is COLD. If it has creamy/milkshake like oil in the engine crack case then it's a real bad sign.
Check the oil cap when it's COLD. Like for the creamy/milkshake non-oil like cream.
Are you loosing coolant?
Keep a log book on the coolant lost.
Does it over heat or does it the engine ran hotter compare to few months ago?

To pin point a blowing headgasket you will need
1)coolant system compression tester
or
2)chemical reaction test for combustion test gas
If it's the org. engine from 1986,with over 86,000 then blown headgasket is a good possiblity.
Tow it to the shop and let the pro to do the coolant pressure test and combustion gas test.
A full head gasket job with head re-surface (if it can be re-use) is worth it.
Shop around on well estiblished independent shops.
Fix the blown head gasket at the first stage of failure can safe you thousand on a head replacement.

I have a 2000 dodge grand caravan with the 3.3L engine and it seems to have what sounds like or could be a blown head gasket. It starts, but will not idle. runs rough, so badly that it wont stay running.


Pull the oil dipstick and see if you have a lot of bubbles in the oil. If your head gasket is blown you will have coolant mixing with oil causing the bubbles. If you don't see the bubbles, you may still have a bad head gasket but should consider that it may a be a bad intake manifold gasket. Look on the ends of the engine block - where the transmission attaches on the driver's side and the drive belt is on the passenger side. Look for signs of coolant leaking onto the outside of the block castings at the base of the lower intake manifold chamber (it looks sort of like the flattened bottom of a V) . If it's there you may just have the manifold gasket leak. My '03 T&C with the 3.3l had this problem. It ran rough, and only with no pedal being applied. Driving was tough to get it to the shop since it died at each stop light and required the gas pedal to be feathered to keep it running.

If you have more than amateur skills you can replace it yourself.
