    This is most likely caused by either a defective camshaft position sensor or crankshaft position sensor. The other likely cause is a defective ignition coil.

    But if the compression test was not checked against Chrysler's minimum pressure limits or showed more than 15% variation between the lowest and highest pressures; then it may be a compression problem after all. And that could come from a bad head gasket.

    CRANK SENSOR WAS JUST CHANGED HAD A CRANKING PROBLEM SENSOR TOOK CARE OF THAT PROBLEM, CAM SENSOR WAS CHANGED A FEW MONTHS AGO I JUST CHANGED THE COIL, DIDNT WORK.... THE CAR DOES NOT FEEL LIKE THERE IS A MISFIRE AT ALL WHEN DRIVING OR WITH A LOAD ON IT... JUST KEEP GETTING FLASHING CEL AND RANDOM MISFIRE CODE.. COMPRESSION WAS THE SAME AT BOTH MISFIRE CYLINDERS...

    I appreciate the fact that the compression was the same in both misfire cylinders; but the relevant statistic is how the compression in the misfire cylinders compares to the compresion in the other 2 cylinders; along with what the actual pressure readings are in each of those cylinders.
