Check engine light comes on in carwash and rides rough.
I have had problems with the vehicle stalling in the car wash and with heavy rains. I had maintenance done on my vehicle in May of 2016. While replacing the spark plugs and wires, they found I needed to replace a rusted coil. The vehicle ran good except the occasional stalling in the rain. Now for the last 3 months, I have been dealing with intermittent battery drainage with no idea why. Sometimes it will drain in 8 hours and other times I can go 2 weeks without it draining.
Hydrolocked engine = worthless truck - help me have dodge issue a recall on this vehicle.
Got car wash and Check engine light illuminated. Threw code for p0123 and 4th coil bad. Replaced both problem resolved. Need replacement cowl seal as well. Trying to find online
I just finished washing my car Saturday and for the first time my engine which is a brand new crate engine has hesitated for the past few days, runs bad, and won't accelerate at all. I am pissed and don't know what to do. Any suggestions.
I ended up replacing the cowl, which was crack around the bolt hasten.Water was dripping onto the head/ plugs causing a rough ride in rain storms.
I have this problem since I bought the car but never mentioned it because it doesn't rain a lot in Arizona.
Everytime it rains or when I go through the car wash it's like the engine want to stop running.
But now I am worried since the car is getting older. I guess when it rains I shouldn't drive.
