Question about Plymouth Cars & Trucks
Ok so about 2 weeks ago my car just quit working. I thought my wife had run it out of gas. I was unable to get any gas for it for 2 days. Once we got gas however it would not start. Car will crank like it is going to start but then doesn't. I am not mechanically inclined when it comes to automobiles. A friend of mine did a few tests and said there was no spark at the plugwires so I changed the ignition coil. Problem persists. He then suggested it must be the ECU. Got a new one, and the problem persists. Now I'm hearing about a camshaft position sensor. I took my old one off and it was "filled" with oil. It is attached vertically so cannot really be filled but you get what I'm saying. I cleaned it and put the part back on and there is no change. However I am told the oil is a fairly strong indication of a crack in the CPS. Can anyone confirm this. I cannot keep buying parts I can't afford. Thanks.
I am sorry about the money situation but you need to have the dealer do a diagnostic on this system, the whole thing is electronically controlled.

there is no crank sensor on this vehicles 2.0L. If you have power to the coil, new coil, cap and rotor try this if not done yet>>>Unplug coil power first....Try pulling off the distributor cap, and make sure the rotor is spinning with the cam...If this fails to spin, inspect the entire distributor assembly. If it passes, Inspect all the power circuit and wiring to the dist assembly, if ok possible ecu. i recommend having a mechanic check it out!! Hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks

not likely the coil,is engine check light on?has come on at all? if not light at all suggest you wait till check engine light comes on,then take to an autozone,or advance auto parts. they will code read it for free! just the check engine light HAS to be on to get a correct reading. only other suggestion is replace the idle control sensor.$20.00 for part 2 screws to remove and anyone that works at a parts store can tell you where it's located!i've always trusted advance auto parts,but i cannot recommend any one parts store to you as it would be considered as advertisement,so i suggest you do research on parts stores and use the one that you will be comfortable with. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

You're either out of gas or you need a new fuel pump.
Roll the keys back to the 'off' position.
Have someone sit by the back tire and listen as you roll the key forward until the lights on the dash come on DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE OVER.
If they hear the pump then you're out of gas, if they don't hear the pump your pump is likely burned up.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
