Can anyone help or any suggestions........I have a
2008 Dodge Charger and my check engine light
came on after a few days it went off, it came on
again and I took it to my mechanic, he said its
reading cylinder 1 miss fire, he changed my head
gaskets, light went off a few days later it came back
on reading the samething, so we decided to change
the o2 censors, light went off and now it's back in
again. Can any one give me some suggestions.

What? If the CEL indicated a Cylinder misfire #1, that would mean the spark plug on cylinder one was worn or bad, or the coil for that cylinder would need replacing. He replaced your head gasket for big money and an O2 sensor? Sheesh, you need to use another mechanic.

Thank You and we also changed the spark plugs......so I guess our next step is to change the coils. My husband actually wanted to change the head gaskets and sensors. I have a really good mechanic and honestly my charges have really been at a low cost compared to what the dealership was giving me.

Also when I look up the coil I'm giving like 5 different types of coils.......so confused

Probably different brand names all the same tough. I'd replace #1 coil and not all. Make sure you get the correct one for your engine size.

Ok great so I have a 6 cylinder, so I'm assuming it's 6 coils and I should just replace #1 coil. Thanks for your help
