  1. Past hour
  2. Misfireon cylinder one

    Also engine is 2.4 and I find that if I cut car off it resets itself with no misfire, but once I start driving it starts misfiring again. Did a power source check to injector 1 and found it working but under pressure something cuts power causing misfire. Please any suggestions will help.
  3. Today
  4. as i said above i did notice a slight drone noise when i hit the gas didn't seem to hear it before the install of the hitch( thinking it might be from the hitch making a more solid connection at the rear between the frame) but i havent noticed any loss of power or such. now i did add a folding carrier that has a folding loading ramp for my wife's 3 wheel medical scooter and even with that didnt notice any loss of power. i avg about 22 mpg ( in town and some out of town driving) with or without the scooter loaded and the scooter weighs about 250 lbs, but on long trips on the interstate i still will avg about 23-25 mpg. happy with my Journey anyways....
  5. Happy New Journey owner but crazy hitch question

    You're absolutely right... I spoke too soon, had a few too many beers after the game tonight, and looked at the tongue weight, but it still may be noticeable given where the hitch is. We did notice the extra weight a bit just because it was at the very rear of the vehicle, unless it was in our heads. If it's extremely noticeable though they should take it to ensure it is mounted in the right position, honestly I'm not too sure what could have happened to make it feel "significantly" heavier during normal driving.
  6. the 400 lbs is the tongue weight max for towing it weighs 37.5 lbs same one i put on my crossroad and mine is a class 3.....
  7. My 2009 dodge journey is misfiring on cylinder 1, and I have changed all the coils, spark plugs, and even injector 1, but it still keeps misfiring. I even went so far and changed my pcm, but code returned. Please help with any suggestions.

  9. Happy New Journey owner but crazy hitch question

    In most cases it shouldn't but if you've been driving it without you may notice a slight bit of difference... especially if the vehicle is new, it is at the far rear of the vehicle so added weight at that point can be exaggerated during regular driving.
  10. the tow hitch i bet doesn't weigh more than 40 lbs,so that wouldn't cause any difference
  11. What year is your DJ? Up until mid 2012 they used the 4 speed auto for the 2.4l engine so that may play into what is wrong. Your best bet is to take it to the dealer and explain what is going on. If you are looking for someone who has had a similar problem here that information will probably help find people who may have had similar problems. Other than that you should either take it to the dealer or a specialized mechanic.
  12. Misfire code

    Please tell me how to post in correct forum. Thanks
  13. Battery shelf

    The DJ was designed pre-pentastar engine, and that was the best place to place the battery with the new engine. However, if your DJ is a 2011, in the last 6 years of maintenance (especially is you went to a Dodge dealership), if it was a true risk to anyones life they would have let you know. One of the steps that they have to take when performing regular maintenance is an inspection of the battery and the housing. You should also be inspecting this area yourself occasionally.
  14. transmission, more than clunk

    I have same problem like yours: my car history: gear shift hard some times during wither (more), some times in warm weather. Dealer had updated the software for the PCM, but not sure if there is any updates from about 2 years ago (when I got the last update). Generally, gear shift big bang disappear after update. but now I got this bang badly again every time in this mild fall weather which is 20 degree C.
  15. 2012 Dodge journey Crew 6 cylinder FWD 1. history: gear shift hard some times during wither (more), some times in warm weather. Dealer had updated the software or flashing the PCM couple times, but not sure if there is any updates from about 2 years ago (when I got the last update). Generally, gear shift big bang disappear after update. 2. two days ago, car rpm jump up when slightly touch the gas pedal, then check engine light on. after changed engine air filter (dirty), the gear shift big bang comes every time when shift gear from parking to any position. any advice for trouble shoot? Based on my reading from this forum: Causes maybe:??? 1. Mass air flow sensor dirty, need to clean 2. solenoid pack, 3. update the software for PCM 4. problem from the TIMP 5. transmission fluid change... 6. fuel pump filter clog: refer to the following http://www.dodgejourneyforum.com/topic/2656-transmission-problem/ Thanks.
  16. Happy New Journey owner but crazy hitch question

    Tow hitches can be pretty heavy... since you have been driving it without the hitch you may just be noticing the difference. That being said, if they installed the actual Mopar/Dodge hitch they should be able to tell you whether it is the hitch weight or if something is actually wrong. We had ours put on at the dealership and I did notice a bit of a difference. Mostly it was because I came from a small car, and got used to the horsepower of a V6, then they added the hitch and I definitely noticed the weight addition. I would ask if the tech could drive a new DJ for a mile or two then drive yours to see how substantial the difference is.
  17. How To Change Spark Plugs

    I agree, the 3.6 takes up a lot more space, making everything harder to reach. My first car was a 93 mustang with a 4 banger and I had about 10 inches to work with which made working on it a breeze. Nowadays they cover everything up and make it impossible to reach.
  18. Misfire code

    Hi Denise, unfortunately there isn't much that we can do on the forum... hopefully somebody will chime in who has maybe had a similar problem, but unfortunately you didn't post in the right section. Under the Engine and driveline section is where you should post this, just to make sure everyone else knows where to look to provide a response. The admins will probably be able to move it or you can repost... sorry to hear about your problem though!
  19. How To Change Spark Plugs

    i would do the 4 cyl, but i have the 3.6 and i watched a video or 2 on how to do it, and i guess i'm showing my age but think i would rather pay someone to do it since it only once every 100k...
  20. blacktop rim scuff :(

    Black nail polish. I know it sounds crazy, but it works.
  21. I pieced together an air intake and primed and painted my original calipers. The intake was pretty easy. Items needed were the pipe, filter, coupler and hose clamp, and brass fitting for the small hose coming from the motor that was connected to the original air cleaner box. I went with a 3.5” pipe, coupler and clamp. Painting the calipers was easy. Take the wheels off, put a couple coats of VHT caliper primer on, and then a couple coats of VHT black caliper paint on the calipers and anything else you want to spray while your down there. Lol. I can honestly say, the caliper paint made a big difference visually.
