My 2014 Dodger Dart GT is about to explode it’s misfiring like crazy giving me the same message a lot of people on here also get the oil solenoid is out of range. Long story short they don’t make just that part so I have to replace the whole Multi Air Acuator Assembly the thing is the whole part is 1,200 but should I waste the money on that when I can buy a whole new engine for the same price my car already has 100k on it and from what I hear that because I’ve drove with it like that misfiring there’s probably also unfixable damage to the engine I already changed the spark plugs and ignition coils I checked the oil pressure and got an oil change it’s right on point it’s not low or too filled up. please help should I just replace the part or just buy a new engine

I would look for a wrecked Dart with a 2.4 at a you pull junkyard and just pull the MultiAir assembly. Probably will cost less than $100. Try not to turn it over so not too much oil drains. It will still take some prolonged cranking. Be careful installing it turning each bolt just a few turns sequentially so that it all lines up correctly.
If you do replace your MultiAir, consider trying to disassemble your old one or at least how to unstick stuck solenoid plungers.

Good evening I took your advice and went to a junkyard but could only find one for a Chrysler 200 will that one work?

If it was from a 2.4, it should be the exact same MultiAir assembly. Carb cleaner works great to remove the junkyard writing pen marks.

Since all these cars had the same problem do you find it worth the risk buying one from the junkyard for it to have the same problem?

Junkyard parts are priced right, cheap. Wrecked cars were running before they got wrecked. Not all 2.4s are having this problem. If you still get the same codes, maybe it wasn't the MultiAir assembly. At least you didn't pay $1000+ just for the part.
