Question about 2001 Dodge Durango

2 Answers

I was driving and the car just quit running and won't start

My battery is new and it cranks but will not start. I was driving down the road and it shut off and would not start. It seems it is either not getting fyel or spark to plugs.

What can cause this?

    The car was running fine and it quit. If it was a fuel filter it would have been running rough up to the time it quit.

    If it was plugs or wires it would have given me advanced warning by running rough.

    It has to be a sensor or something.

    Thank you

    This happened to me the other day. The truck has no spark and no fuel pressure in the rail. We hooked it up to a very capable system analizer but cannot get into the pcm. Someone told me about an auto shutdown relay, says it gives these exact symptoms when it dies. Any imput to shed some light on this would be helpful

It's a fuse on side of the dashboard--I think its the one (20 amp) on the top left side or close to that area

What have you checked so far ?
There could be a long list of possible causes.
Does it not crank, or not start ?
Does the battery have power ? Does the starter have power when you turn the key switch to crank ?
Did the timing chain break ?
