Motor is miss firing p3o3 changer ecu after few mins mis fires is my crank position sensor not reading the third cylinder for some reason i did a motor swap ran new motor 3 or 4 hours had miss shift...

your crank position sensor does not read individual cylinders, only the position of the crank shaft. make sure the plugs and wires are good, check the spark coming from the coil, make sure there are no vacuum leaks at intake manifold, check timing, then do a leak down test to make sure you don't have a bent or damaged valve in the cylinder head.

Will turn over wont start getting plenty of gas new built 302 motor ran fine for last 6 months yesterday it died at a stop sign still wont crank had to tow it to the house

If I am reading this correctly, the engine cranks but does not start. It was running, died and will not start. I would be inclined to think it is a pickup coil in the disturbutor or the ingition control module. These are very common parts to fail in older ford products.

I have changed the engine and there is no fire. Tried changed the distributor and the crank engine sensor but still no fire The starter is turning the engine over but when i take a look at the spark plugs...

I have heard of these horror stories about cutting the wires on the ecu and splicing them back together to get the new engine running. We just did a motor and thought we were going to have to do that but the thing fired right up and ran perfect. We couldn't believe it. Anyway, I would try the ignitor, check the fuses, check the oil? Check the immobilizer? How about the ?? There has to be something you are overlooking. Did you get a new ecu with the new motor? Is everything hooked back up? No wires left disconnected? Hope this helps.

1994 Jeep Grand cherokee 5.2 no start

Check the crank angle sensor sensor near the transmission inspection plate.

CAS can intermittent and fail with no warning.

I turn down a job because the "other guy": used a tire iron pry open the inspect the flywheel!!!

After all said and was the crank angle sensor.

Xg300 failing ran diagnostics and ...

I'm a Platinum Certified Hyundai Technician. Low RPM and Limp Home are always accompanied by each other. Throttle body cleaning FIRST - see what that does. ETS motor not probable, crank position sensor (maybe, because engine stops).. if crank position sensor, there's usually a diagnistic trouble code which identifies it. Clean the throttle body first... then see what happens.

1996 Camaro won't start

My 94 z28 Camaro misfires whne shes hot, I got her on a diagnostic and they told me that the distributor {optispark unit} was reading faulty and that I needed to replace this before they could go further $1100 quoted, ye right, I bought one for new at $169, they quoted me $400 just for the unit, anyway, I havent installed it yet, Found out that backfiring could also be a module, well I have the dizzy now so I may as well get the module as well. Will let you know. I went to start my car today, it started briefly then died, I thought the dizzy had completely died. Checked fuses and connectors, It cranked over but wouldn't fire. Decided to surf for info on the net. 1 hour later I went back out and tried again, It fired up and ran, Must have had a gremlin, all seems to be back where it was now, Summary, go make some lunch and come back to it, nothing to lose except some time. {If still fails, check Air flow sensor, may be clogged}
