2001 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
Hello! My check engine light came on and the shop said it was a misfire. I replaced the plugs, wires, dist. Cap, rotor and had the compression checked, all within normal levels. I checked the codes again when the check engine light came on again and it lists all my right side cylinders as misfires! It does idle a bit rough at times so I do believe it misfires occasionaly. If my compression is good, all new wires, etc. Why would exactly and only the EVEN cylinders misfire? Seems strange. I know it's an high milage vehicle but I want to maintain and repair it rather than buy new. Something strange that may or not be related, I recently replaced my climate control blower resistor and noticed that the wires around the plug were very brittle and had developed some had cracks around the wire coating. Probably made worse by me bending the wires when I removed the old and installed the new resistor. The wire bundle to the resistor now needs to be jostled occasionally to make the blower work in all four speeds. I am in the process of fixing this, but couldn't help but notice that the check engine light comes on almost every time the blower motor resistor wires are jostled. May not be related, but though better bring it up now than later if it is important.
Thanks in advance!
have the same problem?
