Hi, My 2005 Chrysler Pacifica (AWD 3.5L 6cyl about 190,000 miles) began jumping/sputtering to and from work (mostly freeway driving, 70 mph, 45min each way). The next day, i drove in town (maybe 3 miles at 40mph) and no jumping, but when i stopped at a red light, the engine cut off. I got it on, but it cut off immediately. Then I got it on and I let it have a little gas while i waited for the light to change. I drove back home with only 1 sputter on the way back (no other stops). I hooked it up to the reader and got these codes: P0404, P0420, and P0108, which I googled to mean something with the EGR, the Catalyst system below threshold, and fuel temp sensor circuit malfunction. I had a similar problem just 1 year ago and took it to the shop with codes 0420 and 0406. they did new spark plugs, EGR replacement, and air induction flush. (it should be noted that i've been driving around with my engine light on for a while now). SO....i'm trying to figure out my plan of action. I'm low on $$$ (who isn't?) I'm not a mechanic and don't have any specialized equipment, but i'm mechanically competent and would like to know what you think the problem is, if I can do the work at home myself or if the difficulty level would be too high, and what would you estimate the cost would be? Anything you can offer would be great. Thanks!

Mechanically competent and having a mind to systematically trouble shoot drivability issues are two different abilities. No tools, service information, or experience is going to make this really difficult without guessing and throwing the parts cannon at it. If it we're me, I would be troubleshooting the P0108 code or take it to someone with the equipment and knowledge.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
