Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

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.

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...
