Default Getting ECM Flashed and Installed

New member here. Taking my '03 Pt GT to Chrysler get computer flashed and installed. It's been throwing out crazy injector codes so I decided to order new ECM in hopes it'll solve my problem. Apart from that my battery light been turning on as well which deemed my Cruiser useless for the time being not sure if the ECM is related to that as well but I do know I'll need to get new battery terminals and snip the wires. Wish me luck

Just a quick update got my ECM flashed and installed. So far everything seems to run well but turns out my upper and lower engine struts are really bad (due to engine leak) it just seems like an endless lists of repairs with my Cruiser

I am assuming that you are referring to the engine mounts. If so whom ever replaces them make sure they install them as per the Factory Service Manual procedure.

These mounts are easy to install and so many because of that ease of installation fail to set the engine correctly with the new mounts. This will cause a number of problems for you done incorrectly.

Repairs and replacement of parts really is so much cheaper then a hefty new car payment!

Just when I thought my car is alive, not even driving it a full day, engine light pops right up again. Couple miles after I make a left turn, begin accelerating, and my car begins jerking. Reading previous posts my best guess would be camshaft sensor but won't really know for sure until I run DTC tomorrow morning.
