P0545 & Po307 engine codes...
I'm having problems with my '98 Dakota (318ci).
I've just started getting the P0545 code which refers to an A/C Clutch problem. Any idea what this maybe? I've read somewhere that this may be the relay? Not sure where to start on this one... Don't want to order parts unneccesarily as it's expensive getting them shipped to the UK, especially if it's not the right one! I usually run the A/C on her and it's still putting lovely cold air out without problem.
Also, I keep getting the P0307 (misfire on cylinder 7) code come up. I've replaced the sparkies several times now and it seems to work for a couple of months and then comes back. I've also replaced the HT leads twice. Other times the error will just come up, turn off and turn her over and it's gone.
the truck seems to be pulling fine, plenty of power and doesn't sound sick so I'm not convinced there is a misfire.
Would appreciate any advice on these, as being in the UK, there aren't too many Dodge's round here and most garages don't want to touch it, so I'm learning it all myself as I go along.
All advice appreciated.
Thanks - Rich
