I've changed plugs, wires, and coil pack but my 3.8 2001 Grand Caravan still miisses and runs very rough. What might be my problem?

Asked by Sep 18, 2015 at 04:06 PM about the 2001 Dodge Caravan SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For no apparent reason my 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan, just started running rough and missing,   The check engine light came on for just a few seconds, so I took it to my auto parts store.  They ran it for codes and the codes said number one cylinder was the problem, so I changed plugs.  It didn't help.  I changed wires.  It didn't help. Then I finally changed the coil pack and it seems to run rougher than ever.   What might be my problem?
Thanks      Pete Mills
