I have a 2009 dodge journey. When my truck is cruising at a steady speed it starts to shake badly but as soon as I hit the gas it stops. Mechanic's Assistant: Have you noticed an increase in fuel consumption? And how does the Journey start—same as usual? Yes it starts good and yes it has been burning alot of gas Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Journey yourself? What have you tried so far? No my husband is fixing it for me. He changed 3 of the spark plugs and it still does it so he was going to change the other 3 spark plugs and I bought a [ignition coil](/topics-ignition-coil-dodge/) today but haven't put it on yet And my engine light blinks and when I put it on the tester it said something about cylinder 3 was bad. Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? No thats all

Hi my name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* I will be assisting you today. The system will offer a phone call but please disregard. So to start with it sounds like cylinder three has a misfire. I would start by finishing doing the spark plugs then of the problem still persists I would advise to have a compression test done just to rule out anything mechanical.

What about the ignition coil I boughtWill that do any good to change
Automotive Expert
It is possible that it can fix it. has your husband verified spark at the number three cylinder. If so it wouldn’t do any good to replace.

No. He isn't sure which one is cylinder 3.Bc there is 6 spark plugs 3 in the front and 3 behind them he only changed the first 3 in the front..

Can you provide me with the vin number and I can pull a diagram for you.

3 would be behind the first row??

Ok thank youCan I contact you on this number tomorrow? When he changes that row to see if it worked?
Automotive Expert
I’ll leave the case open.

Still not sure what you need?

Have a certified mobile mechanic diagnose what's wrong with your car, at your home or office.
