Having problems with your 2008 Chrysler Town & Country ?

P0303 Same problem. Third time in, they did a compression test. Compression in 3rd cylinder was almost half what it should have been (should be 205, was 115). They had replace spark plugs, coil pack, and finally got around to a bad spring or valve in the third cylinder. We'll see if it works this time.

Just changed spark plugs, around 150 miles later noticed a sputter or mis-fire between 45-60 mph. pulled the plugs when i got home, no obvious issues with the plugs. problem continues to persist and the truck is progressively running worse. the check engine light just now came on. runs rough at idle and all the way through highway speeds. removed all the 10mm bolts to the coil packs and pulled each out one by one. even swapping the packs that were thought to be bad. getting an intermittent spark

You are running out of possibilities....check all vacuum lines....then check fuel pressure. Fuel pump efficiency may be low. \012After that, a diagnostics check....maybe computer failure.\012Good luck, Paul ... Ford Escort

My car is Audi A4 avant 30v 2.8 1998 with only 30k miles. It started with misfiring and couple days later one of the coils burned. I got new spark plugs, new coil pack and spark wires. After running for couple weeks the coil burned again (stills 4 cylinders working) but this time with no previous misfire. I took the car to workshop but they couldn't figure out what was the problem. They just told me that ECU was getting code 18010 power supply terminal 30- voltage too low but seems that wiring

Car hesitating 2004 Chev. Cav. when i start my car, the engine light blinks and the car putters. When I drive, i smell gas and the car sucks gas bad!! I have changed the ALL the parts that have to do with the spark plugs, includ. the coil pack and boots, spark plugs, the silver ignition piece on top of the coil pack.

My 2002 galant motor shakes like a harley.when it started it give me a misfire code 302 it turned out to be a bad injector.i replaced that and no more 302 code but motor runs rough at low idle it felt like the timing was off so i replaced timing belt and all the components that has to do with the timing my wires and coil packs are less than a year old just replaced spark plugs and the problem still there. does anyone have any sugestions?


My first question would be - did you do a compression test before and after you replaced the timing belt ? ... 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

Bad miss and poor performance. timing marks are all on and 2 of the spark plugs were fouled. changed them and didn't help performance. compressions checked in at 145psi so I am thinking the coil packs are bad on them two cylinders. any thoughts?


Compression was 145psi on the cylinders with the fouled plugs? If so I would have to agree that there is something wrong with spark. Check the plug wires for leakage. One trick to doing that is to start your car at night or in a dark garage and look ... 1992 Nissan 300ZX

I have a 2002 model manual Ford Focus. The best way I know to describe what it does is "acts like there is water in the gas". It starts losing power and has a really bad miss. It will finally quit pulling at all and I have to pull over, turn the car off, and sit for a minute or two. When I start the car back, I usually have to rev it and then it will go for 30 or even 60 miles before it happens again. This has happened 3 or 4 times. I have changed the coil, spark plugs and plug wires. (al

My car has a system too rich bank one code and multiple cylinder misfire. When I purchased it I changed the fuel pressure regulator right away and the oil pressure switch because each had a leak. Oil got into the spark plugs but I dried it up , replaced the plugs, boots , coil packs , housing unit , and had the ignition module tested and it was good. I also changed the fuel filter, and the o2 sensor off of the exhaust manifold. Advanced auto parts told me my timing was jumping from 7 to over

My 2003 Mustang Mach 1 has a skip in the engine when I first start it up. After I drive it for a short distance ( about 6-7 miles ) the skip goes away. I thought it might be a bad spark plug, so I replaced the plugs. Still skips. I'm wondering if it might be a weak coil pack. Anyone got any ideas.


I'd suspect a sticking injector--car should have set the check engine light. Read the code(s) to progress further. If the coil pack were a problem, it would not be likely to fix itself. If the codes indicate an injector problem, try an injector clean ... 2003 Ford Mustang

My 1995 mitsu eclipse is sputtering and has trouble staying on when I turn it on for the first time in more than 5 hrs. It also stalls and throws me an oil light. I've changed the spark plugs (which are black after 10,000 miles), the plug cables ( which look rusty after 5k miles) and the ignition coil (coil pack, coilendra, solenoid, whatever you wanna call it). I've changed al that 4 times in the last 30k miles. Except the spark plugs I've changed that 6 times. I've had the check engine light c

CRAP.............. I have a 2002 Saturn Vue 2.2L. I thought I needed to replace the timing chain, but when we took everything apart, the timing chain tensior, timing chain, and head, plus all the gaskets had to be replaced. We also replaced the spark plugs. We then went out and purchased coil pack modular. When we take the part that the spark plugs plug into out of the engine, and have it upside down, we have spark, when its in the engine the way it supposed to be, we dont have spark. We can not

I have a 2002 Saturn Vue 2.2L. I thought I needed to replace the timing chain. When we took it apart, we realized that the bolt on the timing chain tensior had snapped off and went into the head. So, we replaced the timing chain tensior, timing chain, the head, all the gaskets. New spark plugs, and a coil pack modular. Now, when we put everything back together, it wont start. When we take the piece that the spark plugs go into, out and turn it upside down, i have spark, but when I put it back in

Hi I have a 1996 Mucury Sable it was running rough. It was missing on one spark plug. I found one bad cell in the coil pack so I installed a new coil pack, the car started and ran well. I came back the next day and the car will not start, there seem to be only a weak spark at the plugs.


Hi, did you also change the capacitor that sits on the side of the coil pack? If that capacitor is shorted, it will pull down the power at the coil. You can try disconnecting the capacitor to see if the engine will start, as it is only there to red ... 1994 Mercury Sable

I have a 2001 Volvo S40 Turbo. Several months ago, My cars turbo didnt seem to be working. and the car was spitting and sputtering. I had the codes checked and found a misfire on Cyl 1 and 2. Or possible bad oxygen sensor. I changed out the coil packs, spark plugs, wires and the oxygen sensor. Cleared the code and it seemed to be better. A few minutes later, the check engine came back on. The spitting and sputering returned. Well, I drove it like that for a long time. I took it into a garage and
