Exclamation Issues.

Gday,

So there's an issue with the dodge breaking down under load, seems worse on cruise control on an incline.

Engaging the Tow/Haul when it's breaking down does help slightly but doesn't totally eradicate it..

I thought fuel pump,fuel filter at first, not having changed or worked on before I'm hesitant to go down this road first, so the easy fixes for spark include coils, plugs and leads but after that I'm at a bit of a loss.

Does this sound familiar to anyone ?, if so I'd be keen to hear your findings.

Cheers

Do you happen to have the Check Engine Light on? Might be a good time to check. Cheap and simple to perform and even if you don't, great investment for the future to purchase a Scan Tool. Good Luck!

No mate, there's no check engine alerts etc, I'll just go with the usual suspects and change the plugs first, thought there might've been similar experiences from members though.

Thanks for the links
