    Why does my van make a clank clunk sound when I first start it each day ?
    It doesn't do that when i start it after that first time through out the day. Only when it has sat overnight. Sounds bad but don't know why it is doing that. Only when I try to start it.

      Have the trouble codes checked. Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free. How long since a tune-up?

      Not all but most newer dodge products have the voltage reg built into the ECM (computer) . The alternator just makes power and the ECM tells it how much and when .

    Stopped a leak in the engine of oil. How long before the oil that was leaked clears out?
    Replaced the valve seal cover, the spark plugs, and pcb valve. The leak is stopped but it's still got excess oil from the leak in the engine and the exhaust still has a bluish white smoke coming out. We had a accredited mechanic work on it and that was the only ...

    Questions about strange Idle and possible solutions
    I'm not sure exactly what is wrong with my car, so I thought I would just post the things I've noticed that are uncharacteristic and perhaps we can arrive at a few solutions. My car's idle seems to be acting up lately (for the last year or so). If I am at a stop ...

      Plug in a code reader and see if any codes are stired. the check engine light does not need to be illuminated for a code to exist. get a $20 code reader from amazon. this step cannot be skipped. Clean the battery terminals inside and out like your life depends on how clean they are. Chrysler products are very sensitive to low voltage because of either a bad or degreded battery or corrosion on the battery terminals, as the low voltage caused by same affects the idle air control heavily and can cause erratic behavior with the idle speed. Sometimes the diale air controil needs to be replaced. Make sure the air intake tube is not cracked underneath where you can't see.

      Replace the pickup coil in the distributor. Too bad you went and spent all that money on all those unnecessary parts.

      Try to visit this link http://www.automd.com/diagnose/inspection to have an idea what to do if you don't have spark.

      Did you check for spark in your spark plugs or coil? You should check for spark in your coil first, if there is spark in your coil and plug wires but no spark in your spark plugs then it is possible that the fault is inside your spark plugs.

      Confirm some basics That you did not mention here. Is there ignition spark? Yes / No
      When you turn the key to "on" and the dash warning lights illuminate, do you hear the fuel pump turn on and run for two seconds and stop? Those answers first and I will continue to assist you.

      spray starting fluid in the throttle bore opening, the crank over engine if starts/fires, then have a fuel not getting to cylinder problem, verify that the fuel rail has fuel pressure, check if there is a fuel rail engine pressure tap, if so then remove cap which looks like a tire valve cap and depress schader valve to see if fuel is present, do not crank engine when doing this. Also you could get a fuel pressure gauge to measure fuel pressure within vehicle specs. Check some other sites for more info, assistance, or diagrams/specs
