Dodge Repair: replaced ecm but check engine light is still on., autoparts store, emissions test
autoparts store, emissions test, emission tests: Hi Hank, Disconnecting the battery (which causes another 1684 nonetheless) should erase the 0601 so it suggests it is still valid.

Dodge Repair: Transmission issues 2006 2500 dodge ram, dodge diesel, autoparts store

Dodge Repair: ECT Sensor inaccurate?, coolant temperature sensor, engine coolant temperature sensor
coolant temperature sensor, engine coolant temperature sensor, engine coolant temperature: Hi John, Thanks for all that information about the ECT readings.

Dodge Repair: 1994 Dodge Caravan: HVAC blower motor
Hi Jack, It could either be fuse #26 if it has a crack in its wire which is opening when it heats up, or it could be the blower motor resistor block which has a series of resistors any one of which could behave similarly. If the blower stops operating on...

Dodge Repair: 1996 dodge van 2500 igniton problem

Dodge Repair: 2003 dodge neon: vibration cause?

Dodge Repair: '94 2.5Lflex-fuel: engine stalling
Hi Rebecca, It is good that your son identified an injector not working properly. I wonder how much the store in Washington state wants to charge you for it; is it new? A fuel injector for a non-flex fuel engine, which only has one injector in the throttle...

Dodge Repair: 94 Dodge Spirit Flex fuel injector
I would check at a Chrysler dealer about the part number. It may be that the Washington state store wants to sell you the injector for the non-flexfuel engine as that one does cost $150. It is very unlikely to be useful at all. If your car was sold new in...

Dodge Repair: '95 Ram: blower motor and airbag dummy light

Dodge Repair: No AC compressor clutch: '91 5th Ave.

Dodge Repair: engine rpm drops at full throttle
