Another f'n problem with my GTS...help please
my gts is really pissing me off, i got a cel today took it to autozone and they did a diagnois, it read multiple misfires, the guy at autozone said it was a problem with the fuel filter or injectors so i bought a really good injector cleaner. the cel hasnt come back but the idle sounds chopy. there is a faint tapping bass sound, like its still misfiring. wtf?!?! help me out gts owners, i mean it rides normal i got lift back jst this came out of no where.

2 new coils? those dont go bad often so sad.

random misfire, can come from mis aligned valves, ignition problems, (check your spark plugs), or fuel delivery.

look into those three.

clean the fuel system and try some new spark plugs, if you got $60 laying around goto to the dealership and get some.

welcome to the hell that is GTS ownership. I have a problem once a month. It's either a CEL, or water in the headlight, or a broken something.

Great quality. I should have bought a Dodge thumbsdown

boy could I tell you some Dodge horror stories. NEVER buy a dodge, 'cept a viper. Back to the subject, clean your MAF before you go to far. I've heard of a bad MAF causing the same code. Try the cheap fixes first!

Ya, the only dodges I like is the viper and ram. I have some friends with intrepids, neons, and stratus' and they have troubles. I honestly dont hear that many problems from GTS owners...

well, most of these problems are because you've got an 00.

there are TONS of service bulletins for updates to the 2000 MY.

Tranny, weather stripping, headlights, sun roof, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. Wait till your tranny breaks, that'll be a headache thumbsdown

It won't break unless you abuse it. the 6spd trannys are fragile and must be treated delicatily.
