I had this problem before, they way i got round it was to put the sensor just say half way in until the engine sound good on tick over, once that is good make a spacer to keep it like that...or.. like i did buy a new sonsor.

2004 cavalier. Changed timing chain head gasket. No spark. Won't start


we have no idea what you touched, or pulled. ?
which engine option, why make us guess the most vital part????????
on all engines, we check compression first after fiddling cam timing.
this proves we didnt Frackup. 150PSI on all cylinders, is GO.
or read the FSM on Compression, that be SPEC.
next comes spark,
you said no spark but fail to say no spark on 1 cylinder or all cylinders.
IT MATTERS !
but if you connect a scan tool , and crank the engine for 5 seconds.
all modern cars 1987 to now, will show why it dont starts. for spark
all cars will in fact set a DTC error
all care will show bad CMP or CKP. sensors. (precusors to spark)
or more info, the newer the car, every year, newer. (evolution)

here is the engine line up off wiki, (fastest source)
2.2 L LN2 I4 (gasoline)
2.2 L L61 I4 (gasoline)
2.2 L L42 I4 (gasoline/CNG)
2.3 L LD2 I4 (gasoline)
2.4 L LD9 I4 (gasoline) pick one.?
now my wild guessing based on 1000s of owners asking same quesitons same way, zero input.
1: unplugged cam or crank sensor.
2: coil packs not plugged in , 1 or more.
3: timed wrong. didnt read the FSM pages on how to do it right and tenssion a belt right if belt.
4: lots of other parts not connected ,?

wider guess 2: L61 engine
aka;
his engine is also known as a Z22SE in other countries such as The United Kingdom and Australia.
On engines produced before 2007, spark was produced via 2 coils in a cassette that bolted to the top of the valve cover which contained the boots for each spark plug on the bottom of it, eliminating the need for wires.
ok no wires, so no crossing them or forgetting them.

tell more get mre
tell engine, and 100x more.

really, what engine.
it ok 99% ask with out telling here.
but how can you fix something like an engine and not know what is there.??????

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks


My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

My 2000 honda civic wont turn over and has no spark but the ignition coil and modual are both fine


Won't turn over? Do you mean the starter won't crank the engine over?

Or the engine cranks over and won't start, and you have tested for spark when cranking and have no spark? And then you have tested the coil and ignition module, and they tested out good? Am I on the right page here? If so, maybe the next thing to check would be the crank position sensor. The ecu (computer) signals the ignitor (ignition module) when to initiate spark after it digests the signals from the crank position sensor and the cam position sensor.

My 1996 Ciera Oldsmobile through a PO336 code?


Hi there:

DTC P0336 - Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Range/Performance


The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) is usually a two wire sensor: a signal and a ground. The CKP sensor consists of (usually) a permanent magnent sensor that is mounted in front of a reluctor (toothed) wheel mounted to the crankshaft. As the reluctor wheel passes in front of the crank sensor, an A/C signal is produced that varies according to engine speed. The PCM (powertrain control module) uses this A/C signal to interpret engine RPM. Some crank sensors are hall-effect sensors instead of permanent magnent sensors. These are three wire sensors, provided with voltage, ground, and signal. They too have a reluctor wheel with vanes and "windows" that change the voltage signal to the PCM, providing a RPM signal. I will focus on the former, since they are simpler design and more common.



The crankshaft reluctor has a specific number of teeth and the PCM can determine the position of the crankshaft using only this sensor's signature pattern. The PCM uses this sensor to also determine cylinder misfires by measuring the reluctor teeth locations in the CKP sensor signal. In conjunction with the Camshaft position sensor (CMP) the PCM can determine timing of spark and fuel injection. If the PCM senses a loss of CKP sensor signal (RPM signal) even momentarily, P0336 may set.


Symptoms of a P0336 DTC may include:
Intermittent stalling & no start
No start
MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) illumination
Intermittent misfire


Potential causes of a P0336 code include:
Bad crank sensor
Broken reluctor ring (missing teeth, debris lodged in ring)
Reluctor ring dislodged/stripped from it's stationary location
Wiring harness chafing causing short
Wiring open in CKP circuit


Possible Solutions: Crankshaft sensor problems are at times intermittent and the vehicle may start and run for some time until problem occurs. Try to reproduce the complaint. When engine stalls or if the engine will not start and continue to run, then crank engine while observing RPM reading. If there is no RPM reading, check for a signal coming out of the crank sensor. Using a scope is best, but since most DIYers don't have access to one you may be able to use a code reader or the tachometer to check for RPM signal.


Visually check the CKP harness for damage or cracking in the wiring insulation. Repair as necessary. Make sure the wiring isn't mis-routed near high voltage spark plug wires. Check for loose connection or broken lock at the sensor connector. Repair as necessary. Obtain a resistance spec for the Crank sensor. Remove and check it. If it doesn't pass, replace it. If it checks out okay, check the reluctor ring for damage, broken teeth, or debris lodged in the ring. Make sure the reluctor ring isn't dislodged. It should be stationary on the crankshaft. Carefully repair/replace as necessary. Note: some reluctor rings are located in the bell housing of the transmission or behind the front engine cover and cannot be easily accessed.


If the vehicle intermittently stalls and after stalling you have no RPM signal and you have verified the wiring to the CKP sensor is good, then try replacing the sensor. If that doesn't take care of it, and you can't access the reluctor ring, seek help from an automotive professional.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1989 camry turns over but won't crank also no spark at spark plugs


What about the magnetic pick up. This is the crank angle sensor reporting to the ECM and creating spark. This is known as the G and NE sensor. Just for giggles with the distbutor on cap off crank the engine and see if the rotor change postion with the engine crank. if it does the timing belt is good if it doesnt you will need a timing belt.

98 crv won't start


Check compression and timing belt. If belt is ok and you have compression, check to see if you have a pulse at the injectors. You use a device called a NOID light (basically a light bulb that plugs into the injector plug. Unplug the injectors one by one and plug the light in then crank the engine. Light should blink on and off if the system is working properly. If not check for a bad crank sensor, blown injector fuse and wiring harness. Hope this helps.

Galant won't turn over when trying to start. No spark from plugs. Changed crank sensor and timing belt and still won't start. Any suggestions


you now need to check for 12 volt power, and signal to the coil, also be sure all you timing marks are correct, if you have no spark, unplug one of the injectors and using an led test light check for injector pulse power across the two terninals while cranking, if you have no injector pulse then you could have a problem with the ignition passlock system, or key decoder

When I stop at a light my 2005 Kia Optima engine dies. No check engine light is on. It cranks right back up. Sometimes while going down the road it feels like its dieing and then it will lunge. If I...


Change your crankshaft sensor located behind lower timing belt cover. The way I check it is to unplug the maf and see if it will start if so stop the engine and do a diagnostic 3 DTC's should come up on screen ,one would be the crankshaft sensor. This should be done by a experienced tech.

My car will not start, it turns over but wont ignite. i have changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, and ignition coil. i am at a loss on what else could be causing this.


fuses, relay, corrosion at wire connections, ignition switch, pick up coil, ignition control module. Is the distributor rotor turning when you crank the engine? I ask this because a broken timing belt would cause a no start condition.
