Thank you for any help you could provide.
All those codes are misfire codes. P0300 is a general code for a misfire, P0301, is cylinder #1, P0303, is cylinder #3 etc. Check your ignition coil, spark plugs, and wires.
Coil is year or so old, Plugs, cap, rotor, & wires are 2 months old.
OK, then it has to be a vacuum leak. Start the car , open the hood and start moving some hoses around and maybe you will hear a leak. Spray some carb cleaner around and maybe the idle will increase. If that is OK, last step is check the battery. How old is it? Voltage?
Did some more digging found this thread. It just might be your smoking gun......http://www.dakota-durango.com/forum/showthread.php?t=161766
Thanks. Battery is 3yrs old. Load tests very well. Still holding at 98%. Charging system seems good too. Will try the carb spray. Thanks for the thread will check it out.
Fuel Injector could be misfiring, try cleaning the injector.
