Can you give the actual DTC code? Someone might be able to give you more info with the actual DTC code, the short description a lot of aftermarket scanners give are often only very loosely related to...

Don't get too excited yet, as I mentioned above everything I said is just speculation and might turn out to be wrong. But at least I'll believe I came to the wrong conclusion logically!

That's got to be aggravating. In my opinion, I don't think you have enough information yet to throw a $220 part at it, but it's not my $220! It doesn't make sense that your throttle body is...

I was sure that when reading up on the system in my ‘05, that I read that the relief valve automatically resets once the system pressure is below the blow-off level so I just went and looked it up...

Just my opinion based on zero experience - you’d probably be better off running heavy gauge dedicated wires from the vehicle’s main positive and ground than trying to tap off of the trailer wiring...

Did you disconnect the battery before unplugging the throttle body?

First impression would be a large vacuum leak somewhere on the intake. It's sucking in a lot more air than it expects. Frankly,...

This monitor should only run when the engine is transitioning from 8 to 4 cyl mode. Meaning the code should only ever set when the engine activates MDS, which requires you to be cruising in a higher...

Not that it's your main concern right now, but one of the most common causes of airbag lights coming and going are the connectors underneath the front seats. Try re-seating them.

It wouldn't be a...

Chrysler products were kind of notorious for flaky integrated power modules in the early '00's, causing all kinds of crazy electrical gremlins. I once saw a Caravan with power sliding doors that...

From looking at pictures of converters for 3.7s online, it looks like the upstream O2 sensor on bank one is a long ways above the converter. I doubt you could get a camera from there all the way down...
