An auto parts store does not give out advise

They are parts counter sales people-- not mechanics

Spark plugs seldom fail in your lifetime, so you need to
check for vacuum leaks at O2 Sensors,Exhaust leaks,Vacuum leaks
in inlet ducting ,pcv vacuum leaks,egr system issues

Check & listen to hear if injector all click & have same resistance

An OBD Codes for a cylinder doesn't have to be correct

You have mechanical integrity also

You don't have the tools to test as needed I don't suspect
or you could check cyl contribution,fuel trim,fuel press,cyl misfire
counts,O2 switching times,etc

SOURCE: van is running bad (coil misfire alarm code)

Suggest you check the wiring harness for continuity.
(Unplugged from ECM, of course!)

These wiring harnesses have a bad rep for intermittent breaks, in the wires of the harness. You have to wiggle the harness while running a continuity check, (Multimeter set to OHMS), otherwise the break/s may not show up.

Yes, I know where that harness is located. No, it's not Even going to be fun to remove, and check this harness!

I had to do this with a 1992 Pontiac Bonneville, with a 3.8L engine, not too long ago. Everything had to be removed, on the front of the engine, Including the water pump, in order to extract this harness.

Made me SO happy! (I still get the 'Giggles' when I think about it!!)

SOURCE: New battery & new alternator, still not charging...

Take it to another auto parts store to test to verify.
If you put a voltmeter on the battery when the T+C was running, it should read 14-15V.
It could have a bad diode. If this is the case the alt. will be pumping out AC instead of DC. This is BAD. Batteries do not like this and the battery will fail because of it.
Be careful in those 'auto parts stores'. I have found that they employ alot of 'kids' who know little about how a car works. Try NAPA. They are much more knowledgeable and professional. But they cost alittle more.

SOURCE: I just change the spark plugs on my 2005 Town

you may have accidently disconnected something. ie senser, vaccum line etc. I would just look to see if something is connected in the area I was working or something I removed to get to the plugs. good luck

Why dose my car miss at take off till it get to 40 mph then runs great

First of all change all the spark plugs, fuel filter, & Wires if there really old or U have nit changed them. Once installed if this doesn't solve your miss fire then have the engine check light checked for free from Auto Zone if the check engine light is on light is on. Have it checked anyways bc it could be stored in the computer memory even though the light does not show it is lite.

2001 chrysler town & country oil light is on

If you are taking the car to the garage or a mechanic, mark the oil filter before leaving home to make sure the filter is changed. After the oil has been changed when you return home you can check the filter to see if it was changed because the oil will only be changed. Since some mechanics know an owner of a vehicle will not check. Also, AutoZone have a very good quality oil for the chrysler town and country. Good Luck

1997 town & country won't starter & plugs + wires, I have changes fuses and the engine still willl now turn...can you solve?

now turn??? or will not turn? makes a diffrence...if the eigine turns over...but will not start...pull a plug wire off from a spark plug..take another spark plug(that you know is good).groung the plug on engine block...have some one turn the engine over(make sure you have no loose clothing that can get caught into belts or pullys and that yours hands are not near them either)check the plug for fire..if you have not fire the problem is an ignition module more than likely.If the engine is not turning over...check the connections to your battery..and make sure the battery is good as well..if connections are good and battery is need to do the next step...which is to follow the cables to their destinations..the black (ground to the engine block or body ground) make sure its firmly connected and has clean contact..and is not broken.if this is ok...go to the other (red or positive cable)it will go to the starter. or starter solinoid .do the same with this one as the ground (check for good connection and not broken) if the wires are good and good connection...go to advance auto and they will check solinoid for you (free of charge) I hope I have been of some help to you :-)

It starts fine but it misses when it is started we changed plugs n wires and egr valve. could it be the timing?

Check the firing order of the engine and make sure the plug wires are on correctly. Timing doesn't change when replacing plugs and wires. If the order is correct check to see if the wires are on the plugs correctly and not broken. Looking in a dark place you can see if there is a spare jumping from a defective wire.

Ijust spent 300. on a complete fuel system clean...carbon blast . my town & country ,01 still hesitates at initial acceleration. Just like it was doing prior to the work. so now what?

do you have an engine light?1) check your spark plugs first. when is the last time you had a tune-up? it could be the ignition/timing. might need a new distributor cap/spark plugs/plug wiring. 2) check your intake and look for any vaccum leaks and check your engine light if you do, if you do and its a mass air flow input low, then you need a new maf sensor. 3) if you have a clean fuel system, then that is eliminated as a problem.
