    The Seafoam MAY help, but from what you post it sounds like a bad fuel injector. They are electrically fired and may have an electrical portion of it going bad, not just the nozzle(spray)portion acting up. Good luck and keep us informed as to how things go! AND check in and introduce yourself and ride to the whole forumz family!:)

    Have you done the Key Dance and seen if any other codes are present? There are many threads of how to do the Key dance, and it will give most of the basic DTC"s you may encounter to help diagnose what the computer is not liking for proper running.

    From an old thread:
    "The key dance is putting the key in the ignition and then quickly go ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON. DO NOT ACTUALLY START THE VEHICLE. When u do that, the Odometer should start giving u codes. That's probably one of the best features of a Dodge, the key dance!"
