I've been going around in circles on this one. The original scan gave me a
code 161 and 300. so I changed the Oxygen sensor. Now I get code 300, so I
changed the fuel filter, and the spark plugs. I still get code 300, Random
misfire. When the truck is going uphill at about 110km, the check engine
light flashes. When the truck isn't working hard, the check engine light
goes off. The Truck now has 130,000 km. Any help to diagnose the problem as
opposed to just changing parts would be appreciated
You might start by changing fuel filter and doing a fuel pressure
check too. The fact that it tends to act up under load suggests that
it might be leaning out due to low fuel flow/pressure. It would be
nice if they would code this.
That's the way to make azwiley1 look bad (not). Thats one for you (not)
about 100 for azwiley1.
To speed your reply just post with the correct number below.
1) I'm immature.
2) I should grow up.
3) I'm really insecure.
4) You're a real threat to me.
5) Until I've taken a class in (insert subject here) there is no point in
continuing the discussion.
My lack of good manners? Or are you referring to what I would love to live
in, a good manor?
First, I am not a troll, IIRC a troll would be a person that is only in here
to spam and cause trouble. I on the other hand, do not spam, nor do I cause
trouble, unless point out to innocent posters that your information is
almost ALWAYS wrong, is causing trouble.
Sorry man, I am here to help people and if you were to ever follow any
thread I am in, both here and the dodge group, I do just that. Pointing out
that posters should not listen to you is just another form of helping them.
Talk to Troy about the GPS stuff, better yet, try to disclaim anything that
I said to him. You won't be able too, but people disclaim what you say on a
Again, to Ed, thank you for what you pointed out to me yesterday, point
Does that truck have a distributor? If so, pull it and look for worn
contacts or electical scoring. Even if it doesn't show those signes, it may
be time to replace the distributor, rotor and plug wires - check your
maintanence schedule. You might also check to see if the coil(s) are
misbehaving. First locate the coil(s) in full light, then in a dark location
(i.e. after sunset if outside) look for sparks, glows, etc. from the coil(s)
while the engine is running. If you see evidence of arcing then replace the
coil(s). If it is a multi-coil setup, replace all of the coils because if
one has failed the others aren't far behind.
Ed, being a 2000 model, I doubt that it has a distributor. I believe that
it is a coil direct to plug set up. Though I am shooting in the dark here,
when is the last time you changed your plugs and wires?
Not quite. You got called on it, then rationalized it by saying that 'at
least you read (most) of his post.' (as if he didn't)? And then you went
right on like you didn't have a foot crammed down your throat. And why?
because he suggested something that had already been done? wow.
I'll hand you a .22 first. Gotta take it easy on the old folks..
I'm sure you'll stop in and "bond" with your best friend for a few hours
first. Maybe he'll even undercoat your beast for ya when you're there.
Should be fairly well dripped off by the time you get to my driveway..
Slow evening around here. Weather was nice but it's in the 30's again. That
sucks. Was just getting a good start on getting equipment ready to go.
wow thats alot of reply's, i could not read all of them, three major
issues with this engine,if you have a k&n filter oil gets on the air flow
sensor and ruins it also cats plug easly with missfires, valve guides can
also cause these random misfires under loads..
