Default Re: Downshifts from 4th to 3rd on its own & Reverse Slam

I think it was the changing of the spark plugs and wires. The spark plugs were pretty in terrible shape. There was a slight amount of oil in the first spark plug well so I replaced the valve cover gasket and haven't had an issue since. If the weather gets better tomorrow, I'm going to go out and try to get that 0341 code taken care of

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I checked the ohms of my coil packs and they read 7.83 and 7.9. That thread you pointed me to said about having 8.0 minimum. Would that .17 and .1 be the issue? Also, this reading was after I pulled the cool packs out and cleaned them thoroughly with a wire brush

I wouldn't think so, but I don't have experience with this. Are you sure the wire routing is good?

If you mean correctly corresponding to 4-1-2-3 then yes. And if you are referring to the wires themselves, I hope they are good. They are new wires that I purchased a couple months ago. After putting the wires and everything in, I no longer had the 0300 error but this 0341 won't go away

Not so much that, but this . . .
"The #1 and #4 plug wires must run parallel and adjacent to each other from the coil to the head."

You can check the resistance of those also.

I'm not sure what you mean by they must run parallel and adjacent to one another

It's important how the wires are arranged in the looms - although the #1 and #4 wires don't look adjacent in this photo (?) . . .
