I am not a mechanic, nor do I play one on TV. But if you've replaced the common misfiring culprits, I would next look for a coolant leak, or something off with the radiator fan, or a thermostat gone bad. The thermostat is probably the easiest and cheapest fix to start with. * Thermostat: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv0HpH2ymB4&ab\_channel=1AAuto%3ARepairTips%26SecretsOnlyMechanicsKnow](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv0HpH2ymB4&ab_channel=1AAuto%3ARepairTips%26SecretsOnlyMechanicsKnow) * Water Pump: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9xCAXg9-5s](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9xCAXg9-5s) * Radiator Fan: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nb5mSe3oZ4&ab\_channel=1AAuto%3ARepairTips%26SecretsOnlyMechanicsKnow](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nb5mSe3oZ4&ab_channel=1AAuto%3ARepairTips%26SecretsOnlyMechanicsKnow) My mechanic isn't taking any new clients (he's awesome). But I can recommend C&C Automotive - they're not cheap, but they were always good to me when I was a younger single mom. I've also heard good things about Smith's, but I can't verify that. And finally, a friend of mine works for Butler Automotive and she has good things to say. They'll finance repairs, if needed. But I think you can at least try the thermostat yourself. AutoZone does same-day delivery: [https://www.autozone.com/lp/same-day-delivery](https://www.autozone.com/lp/same-day-delivery) I do recommend also buying a code reader. They're not expensive, and mine has saved my bacon more than once.

Coolant pump

Very likely. If the pump is operated by the timing system, then a lot of the symptoms you described would make sense.

I’ve had nothing but shit with local shops. Dealers will charge $$ but generally get the job done and warranty repairs. The mopar warranty is pretty decent.

Any codes? Get a free scan for active or past active codes. There could be several possibilities and could be related to the climate or just a coincidence. Could be a bad coolant temp sensor which is reading too hot, which would reduce the amount of fuel required by the ECU, causing misfires. Or it could be something as simple as a run of bad gas or over heating fuel pump. Lots of things. There are decent shops around. Most will charge a realitive high price. auto repair in the csra is flooded with small shops and mobile mechanics that aren't licensed or insured as well. You may get lucky with one but if you do some research on the company you will have better judgment. Good luck and let us know how it goes! Ps....make sure you have enough good coolant in as well. Correct type and all. Make sure no air pockets in your cooling system too.

I've always heard good things about Smith's on Peach Orchard, but I've never used them so I can't personally attest to that. Good luck and welcome to Augusta!

I have had good experiences with Oil Express by Costco. One side is for oil changes and the other side is for all other work. I had brakes done there for half price of C&C. And they’ve told me when I didn’t need work done. Honest people.
