My truck misfires and will runs rough and only wants to go up to 40mph/usually am/intermittant
past had a failure code P0304 , cyclandor #4 misfire
we have replaced spark plugs, coil and fuel injector
Any other ideas as to what the problem is?
Wow, have you considered it to be more than just a misfire on cylinder 4? It could be a fuel delivery problem to the whole engine. Also, are you SURE that you are working on cylinder #4? Check and double check again. What engine does it have? I'll get you the cylinder numbering. Also, can you feel a noticeable misfire while the engine is just idling in park?
Do a compression test on all cyls this will locate the problem child, a valve w carbon stuck on the valve face will set the light,if you also have back fire it indicates a valve is open upon firing, possible burn valve may be the culprit, this would create a constant runnabilty issue. (Misfire) good compression numbers gas engines 120 - 180 psi diesel 250 - 300 anything below this range will not fire or balance the engine.
Hope that helps
Also low fuel pressure can give similar symptoms
joef-The engine is 5.7 liter HEMI. Yes, it misfires while in park. tommcmanis-I have not tried the compression test yet. Thanks
How many miles are on it? What maintenance has been done? What happened when this issue started?
87,000 miles. Maintenance-allways oil changes. Truck shaked and did not run faster than 40mph. Now it runs rough/misfires and tends to stop after the engine light goes on. The worst is in the morning. Sometimes during the day.
TPS throttle position sensor
I have a 2003 Dodge 1500. Same code replaced all the plugs and coils. After doing that and a lot of online research I removed my valve cover and found my rocker arm was thrown. It is a common occurrence in the 4,7 v8. Once you replace what the Dodge manual calls a lash adjuster and putt the rocker arm back in your error code should go away. The rocker arm thing is a common thing with the this engine and usually occurs on cold start up. Try running some fuel cleaner and or engine cleaner to clean build up. Good luck
The engine light flashing on and off is what my truck did and it will drive rough and will not drive over 40. If you can help it do not drive it due to damage it can cause to your catalytic converter.
I have a question for fresnonittanylion559??? Im have similar issues and have replaced all my plugs, wires, distributor, and rotor... I have a 5.9 v8 I have not removed my valve cover to check, but im also not getting any pecking sounds from the engine, just misfire and issues going over 50?
I am currently having the same issue with my 2004 Dodge Ram 4.7. Did you get your problem identified and resolved?
I have a 2012 ram 5.7, #1, missfire and sometime 2, head has been change, coil; plugs, lifters, pcm , fuls system good, still missfires
Thank you for the info, it's got to be something that is common on the ,5.7 Hemi, but I can't find anyone that can pinpoint it. My truck miss fires when cold, I can stop and restart, and runs fine the rest of the day, strong and smooth, next morning it all starts again, sputtering and back firing. It has two hundred and fifty two thousand miles on it, never had a minute of trouble, until now. Compression is good, fully maintained always. Love my Ram….
My 2003 Ram 1500 hemi 5,7 just started doing the same thing. It did it a few years ago and it wound up being a broke exhaust valve spring. Hoping that's all that's wrong now..
My 97 Ram w/5.9 was doing same thing. Fixed plenum ,changed cap ,rotor, plugs and plug wires. Still misses at idle and can't use overdrive cause it misses so bad. I pulled the fuel injectors and cleaned them with B12. There are some how to videos on you tube. Truck runs great now. 196954 miles on it!
i have a 98 dodge ram SLT 1500 318 5.2L i changed all senser all dash light went off but still missing so i check the spark plug magnum engine use plug number RC12YC NOT PLUG NUMBER ON TRUCK
