Blower works for back of van.
has new cap and a new rotter button and wires and a new crank sensor and a new distributer pick up
Dies going 60, 30, or at a stop sign with no indications like stumbling or running out of gas. Radio and power remain on, just the engine dies. What I have done: Changed distributor, cap, rotor, plugs, wires. Tried 2 different pcm's, changed sensors: tps, iac, map, crank, cam. Has a new battery, alternator, fuel pump, coil. Checked engine grounds, shot wires to all sensors - continuity and to ground. Verified all relays and have swapped them out. At my wits end. Dodge dealer and another mechanic could not find anything and didn't even have a suggestion. I have basically changed everything every forum suggests, this problem is very common if you go through all the forums and they suggest many fixes, none of which has worked. Thought I had it fixed, but it died again on the highway, help! No codes ever show up on this, dealer verifed no codes also.
[jsc]installpcm,new distributor pickup[sa] reprogramcom[uter[fci] replaced gas cap new battery 1,134.25 pd in full battery dead again please HELP
if turn off it does the clicking again. i cleaned the terminals and the code light lit up i believe 19 times.
Pulled codes:
P0351 (Ign coil A Primary Secondary Ckt)
P0300 (Random Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected)
P0301 (Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected)
P0303 (Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected)
P0305 (Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected)

Replaced plugs and wires, distributor cap and rotor, Ignition coil, Checked compression OK, Fuel Pressure OK, Fuel Injectors OK, Checked for spark (seems fine).Tested for blown head gasket using starter fluid but to no avail. Vehicle will also shut off randomly with no waning signs (except for once or twice when it stuttered and died). Only thing I can think of is possible PCM but not sure how to test the PCM. Also Cyl 1 3 5 are all on one side of the motor so what would cause misfire on only driver side?
