Stepped on the gas, heard a pop sound, lost all power but engine idled rough. Was able to coast it to my house where it now sits. I was able to get it to turn over once since and it idled very roughly. Since then it's only been a crank and no start. Every now and then I smell a bit of gas, but I imagine it is only from the injectors trying to start. I did hook up a OBD II Scanner to it, the codes were P0300, P0302, and P0308. I know these are misfire codes, and I did clear them out. It did not solve the problem. It still cranks but does not start. And no more codes are showing, and the scanner says PASS as well as the dashboard option for checking the errors. It says P done when tested. I replaced the Crankshaft sensor, reset the PCM, and still nothing. Help!
at around 45mph my durango jolts as if the coil isn't sparking the plugs.
Constant P0308 code.
No solution found at this time.
About 30 to 50 mph it's spits and spotters sometimes you have to pull over turn off and restart to get it to run right
