Start by checking the service light. Go to your local Autozone and they can scan the computer for free. Post the code numbers.

Sorry about not getting right back.
Code numbers are:
P 0304 - Cylinder #4 misfire
P 2097 - Down Stream Fuel System 1/2 Rich
P 0522 - Pressure Sensor Low

and to top it all off, the rear view mirrow fell off, at least I an fix that.

There is a TSB about rough idle and P0300 - P0306, involving re-programming the PCM.

You may want to cal your Chrysler dealer and inquire about the TSB to see if that applies to you.

I am sorry to hear that. But the problem that you are experiencing is not for the faint of heart, unfortunately.

Zachman -

Chickened out, a friend and I replaced the Ignation Coil Pack and the spark plugs.

Engine runs great.

BUT - there is something wrong with the brakes (had no problem with them before replacing the above items). I have to really put a lot of pressure on the brake pedal to get the brakes to work, wife cannot drive the car because of this (its her car). Is it possible that some type of adjustment is needed in the cars computer to fix the brakes? Also I think the engine RPM is a little high, runs about 1500 and creeps up to 2000 while idleing. Any suggestion?

Thanks

Zachman - need to make a correction. Engine idles at 1400 rpm and stays there unless the car is put into gear.

I had two cracked spark plugs, 1 and 3, the metal inside the plugs were rusted (near the top of the plug), so that is my guess that is why the engine was running rough.

But it is still very hard to apply the brakes, takes a lot of foot pressure to make them work.

Brake has nothing to do with the problems that you were having. Unless, the vacuum line to the brake booster is accidentally disconnected while you were changing the coil. Check all vacuum lines under the hood, especially close to the vacuum collector (should be close to the firewall), and one hose goes to the booster.

You hit the nail on the head. Had a vacuum off, the one from the top of the engine to the connection on the firewall. After I put it back on, the brakes work like they should.

Zackman, thank you for your help.
