Check Engine Light On problem #6
The vehicle is a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica. The VIN of the car is 2C4GM68485_. Check engine light at approximately 40,000 miles. The check light has come on the vehicle indicating cylinder three misfired. I have taken vehicle to the shop the first time and had the coil replaced. The same light came on with the same warning. This time the spark plugs were replaced, the injections cleaned out, the throttle body cleaned out. I just got it back yesterday and I feel confident that I will have the same thing over the next few days. When this happens, the vehicle idles rough and the car has no power. This vehicle has been maintained higher than the standards call for in the manual. Looks like Chrysler is good for about 40,000 miles, then be prepared to spend some money. I plan to trade the vehicle for a Toyota, though I had supported american made vehicles in the past, with a product like this, you can't afford to. The total cost thus far has been $600. 00. It appears that chrsyler knows the problem exists because of the bulletins, yet they will not recall the car ,and do what is right for the consumers. People can't afford to pay for a vehicle and repair it at the same time with so few miles. The Pacifica is a great riding car ,and I otherwise thoroughly enjoyed it.
