Misfiring 1,3,5, dodge dakota 1998
\015 My initial problem was jerking along with cutting off at idle speed. No check engine light came on. So I changed the crankshaft sensor and the plugs,wires,distributor,rotor button and pick up sensor.But truck was checked after each to see if that was the problem.No luck. Well after a few day the the truck has not jerked but the check engine light came on and gave codes for cylinder 1,3,5 misfire.We changed the ignition coil and the IAC sensor. It is not cutting off anymore now.It drives ok but still misfiring on 1,3,5.Mechanic was thinking fuel injectors. He took the ones from 2,4,6 and swapped with 1,3,5 and it didn't work. Still misfired on 1,3,5. So he said injectors are not the problem.Another mechanic suggested the wires might have been bad, so I changed the plugs and wires. Plugs set at .040, drove it 25 minutes and check engine light came right back on. Misfire cylinders 1,3,5. I'm stumped and broke. Anyone got any ideas? Will be greatly appreciated. 1998 Dodge Dakota v6 3.9.\015
What about checking for vacuum leaks or low compression or a leaking head gaskt
