Question about Dodge Caravan
1998 dodge dakota 5.2L 4wd. Engine dies after 20 minutes driving or idlling and wont start back up. ittermittant camshaft and crankshaft position codes. Both have been changed. Heres where it gets interesting; let it sit overnight and it fires right back up. Could this be a timing chain? how could it start agin the next day if it is?
Timing chains either go out or not go out, there is no such thing as an intermittent problem with a timing chain, what about the ignition module? it is sensitive to heat, and like the crank and cam sensors can cause your kind of problem. U did not mention fuel pressure either, electric fuel pumps can stop from heat when they get near the end of there service life (100,000), this is even more common if the fuel tank is run below 1/4 tank allot, this overheats the pump in the tank because it is not covered in gas, that is how it is cooled.
