Engine Performance problem
2004 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 99000 miles
Prior to replacement of plugs and wires engine ran fine minus a VERY intermittent misfire on cylinder 4. Now having installed new plugs and wires the engine runs incredibly rough and tries to stall. When placed in drive or reverse the entire vehicle will begin to shake violently. I then removed the plugs and wires and put the old ones back on to see if the proglem was the new parts. Even with the old plugs and wires the engine will misfire horribly.
Currently there are no dtc's though I have not driven the vehicle under these rough conditions to allow it to process a drive cycle. The only thing I can think of is a coil went bad during removal and installation of new plugs, I just don't want to throw parts at the car without knowing the cause of trouble.
Thanks for any help.
have the same problem?
