Default Intermittant Miss

Radiator end tank burst near upper hose connection spraying antifreeze directly onto engine and all over engine compartment. Hosed down engine and parked [running fine] for 3 days awaiting new radiator. Replaced radiator, but now engine has an intermittant miss. May run fine for 30 minutes, some times starts with a miss, then smoothes out after 10-15 minutes, or may miss on and off for 1 hour drive.....

What do I clean... first ???

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. Drop by the Newbie Checkin and introduce yourself. Have you checked to make sure there's no water in your oil, a milky coloring is an indication?

Thanks Red Ram for the welcome and reply:

NO water in the oil or oil in the water, drove to the dump today 4 miles round trip. Didn't miss a beat going, couldn't fire on all 8 on the way back.

Service engine light is on and blinks on/off when throttle is advanced during a power loss event.

Going into town tomorrow to visit parts store to check out light.
