Had a meeting cancelled tonight, so had time to change the plugs. Let the engine cool for about an hour and a half .. hood up, engine cover off. It was still warm, but I could lay my hand on the engine for a good 30 seconds without getting hot. I upgraded the old plugs from the stock V-groove copper to platinum, ($11/pair) took her for a drive, no more jerking on hills, nice smooth downshift when it needs extra power.
Makes me very happy to have this fixed so cheap - and before we do about 2,000 miles to kick off June with a little vacay and to bring our daughter home for the summer. Makes me even happier that it was a $32 fix, including the anti-seize and di-electric grease. w00t! WAY better than the $3k I'm putting into a transmission rebuild for my old truck this week.
Yeah, I don't think it was 25 minutes ... that included spreading anti-seize on the threads and adding some di-electric grease to the electrical connections. EASIEST plug job I've ever done, and I used to think the old 1960s inline sixes were da bomb for plug changes. Upgraded the old plugs to platinums, took her for a drive, shuddering problem is gone. I'm going to have to check my service records, but I'm suspecting these were the original plugs.
Can anyone help me find where cylinder no 5 would be located on my 2009 dodge journey sxt 3.5L. It has a check engine light on and the code is P0305.
The other code that is listed in P2314 and don''t know if the other code regarding the cylinder is causing it come on. Any help would be appreciated.
