1990 chrysler newyorker won't start

3.3 cranks but won't start. I can't get any fire to the plugs. I have replaced theCrankshaft Position Sensor and PCM both used parts also a new coil pack. It ran briefly and I was able to restart it several times then it hasn't ran since. Using the engine check light I keep getting a trouble code of 355 which belongs to nothing I can find. I have charged,disconnected reconnected the battery several times. I don't have a scan tool and parts of course are expensive. Please help.

Hello, I saw your problem and want to suggest several things which other car makers have on their A/C systems and to comment on the Emission problem.

First, the Climate controls on some A/C units have their own self-diagnostic routines and Codes. This means you use the A/C digital display to find out the problem in the unit. The Codes are also different from the engine and pollution Codes. The routine is started by punching in a combination of the keys. For instance, press and hold the Cold key on the temperature while pressing and holding the Recirculate key. (Not the actual buttons, but to Illustrate). This sends the A/C control head into a self-diagnostic cycle. It will make the Display flash as it "thinks", then it will flash the Code for the defect. It will blink the number Code.

This may be similar to the LED's you see on your brand of car. It is worth investigating. I found my Codes and Self-diagnostic sequence by using the Browser and you may be able to get this info free by searching the Internet. It worked for me for my Mercury.

The Emission problem requires a "smoker machine" to locate the open hoses. I am not familiar with Chrysler, but I would think the LDP pump must shutoff after a Vacuum level is reached. Since you have a continous leak you keep burning out the LDP. On some cars the gascaps leak, or vent hoses from the gas tank and to the Evaporator canister will leak. One area I would look at are Emission parts that require your vehicle to be in gear and traveling at a minimum speed or RPM.

This would explain the difficulty in finding a fault while the van is in Park and sitting in a Service bay. Some Emission controls do not operate until the van is underway. I hope this was informative for you.

Engine won't start

the spark plug wires can be confusing but a 4 cylinder is not that hard from the front of the engine being where the pulleys & belts are its 1,2,3,4 on the coil or distributor it can be in counter or clockwise rotation 1&3,2&4 or 1&4,2&3 likely its 1&3,2&4 hope you find this helpful

Not cranking and not firing

If the engine cranks, but won't start, and you are not getting spark to the plugs, you need to find out if you have voltage to the coils and module. Is the check engine light on ?

You replaced all those sensor,Your problem is mechanical, The timing may have slipped.If the timing belt is good and all on the mark,how the crank position sensor, The crank get its signal from the transmission flywheel,if the flywheel is cracked and lost its position then it does exactly what you describe . You either have a cracked flywheel or a jumped timing belt.The exhaust can be plugged also

My 1990 3.0 Toyota 4 runner won't start in the cold

If you have spark and fuel, the next stop would be either the crank position or camshaft position sensors.Either one of those can stop the engine from firing.

I have a 1998 Chevy Cavalier that I can not figure out why it won't start. The following list of parts are brand new: Battery, PCM, Park Neutral Safety Switch, Alternator, Ignition Switch, and finally...

Your car has a sealed transmission, in order to check it you have to go to the dealer or a transmission

shop, its not owner servicable. takes dextron vi, 4 speed 7.4 quarts, 3 speed 4quarts

And as far as the no start, are your plugs getting voltage, if not check your coil, if there is no spark

to your plugs the car will not fire up. good luck!

Have replaced the starter solenoid, spark plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, air filter, water pump and battery all within the last two months. When the truck gets hot it will not crank. Has electrical power,...

If you haven't already done so, replace the distributor cap and rotor. There is most likely corrosion inside the cap that is causing a crossfire condition.

This is a common problem on that engine.

Don't know why being hot would aggravate it, but start with the cap.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.

you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

Car wont start.1990chrysler newyorker 3.3 my car will not start.replaced switch,tested starter still nothing.

if it will not crank have you checked all your fuses and relays? there should be a crank fuse and a starter relay. is the relay functioning propperly. next check at your starter yould should have a larger wire that is hot or has voltage on it at all times directly from the battery. there should be another smaller wire that comes from the ignition and at the keys crank position you should get 12volts on this wire this is what energizes your solenoid on the starter. not sure if you have already checked this hope it helps
