I'm assuming the car ran before the sensor? if so check the plug on the ignition control module

96 Dodge Dakota V6 replace the camshaft and crankshaft positioning sensors and when it runs it runs good but it goes to acting up and backfires then if it does that it will not start for nothing


Did this problem start after these sensors were replaced or were these sensors replaced to possibly correct the problem you are experiencing? The back firing may be the result of low fuel pressure indicating the fuel pump is weak/getting bad. I would suggest having the fuel pressure tested when the vehicle is in the backfiring/no start mode. Sounds as if the fuel pump may be a problem

2001 cherokee 4.0 idles fine but once in gear with not accelerate and backfires in intake


Is there a metallic noise (clanking) when you put it into gear?? You may have a crankshaft sensor or crankshaft wiring that is causing problems. Check to see if there is any wires on the exhaust manifold or the exhaust system anywhere.

Won't start


If it's backfiring through the intake, then more than likely it's a timing issue. The distributor cap has the cylinder numbers molded into it where the plug wires go... Make sure the wires are in the right spots. If that's good, then it's possible the distributor isn't lined up right.

2001 ford taurus, 3.0 vulcan motor. just rebuilt the whole motor, backfires out of the intake, seems to be out of firing order. i triple checked my work and can't find the problem. whistling sound of...


Back firing out of the intake is because the valves/cams are not set right. When you did the timing belt . did you set the crankshaft mark at top dead center of the compression stroke. If it's at the exhaust stroke this would cause backfiring and violent shaking.

My 2001 dodge durango dies right down when started even hot or cold it back fires i have changed the sensors it does this in open loop to closed loop


Backfiring is a great symptom because you know what the problem is right away. It seems to be a timing issue. Crankshaft positioning sensor, distributor, electronic ignition, etc. Diagnose your problem concentrating on anything to do with timing. Vehicle just don't just don't jump timing unless something goes wrong of someone does work to it recently. If it backfires from the the exhaust you timing is advance and if it backfires from the intake it's retarded. It's is your firing timing.

Explain :P0320 ignition engine speed input circuit malfunction: it was driveable but it just cut off and want run at all.


My truck was doing the same thing.... replaced the crankshaft sensor first, truck would still die after about 10 minutes of idleing, it back-fired thru the engine and blew off the back of the intake manifold. Pulled the monifold, reglued end-cap and put back in truck. STILL died after idleing for 10 minutes. Code PO320 kept coming up ( crankshaft sensor) researched it and found a bad camshaft sensor can cause crankshaft sensor to act up and give code for the crankshaft sensor. Replaced camshaft sensor and the truck runs like a dream !!!!!! I believe the Manifold was cracked for a while causing the 1299 code reading ( vacuum leak) the back-fire finished it off! I would check the back of your intake manifold for a leak. The combination of fixing the vacuum leak , cam/crankshaft sensors seems to have fixed the problem. GOOD LUCK!!!
