Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze

Open Question

How do you do the relearn procedure on a 96 Plymouth Breeze 2.0L for the crankshaft/camshaft positioning sensor without having the DRB scan tool

We have changed the crankshaft positioning sensor and I have looked on Alldata and it says to do the following...... 1) Connect the DRB scan tool to the data link (diagnostic) connector. This connector is located in the passenger side compartment, at the lower edge of the instrument panel; near the steering column. 2) Turn the ignition switch on amd access the " miscellaneous' screen (or appropirate screen on generic scan tool). 3) Select"re-learn cam/crank" option and follow directions on the DRB screen. The problem is the scan tool I have does not have that so how do I do all that without the scan tool or do I need the tool in order to do that. Someone please help I am in desperate need of some real help. Thanks.

I guess my problem was the new crank sensor has failed.
Replace crank sensor again , it has fixed the problem.
Not too sure if this was any help or not.

SOURCE: No fire at the distributor.

Hello charles_wigg,

Thank you for choosing fixya.com.

There should be a crank shaft sensor, cam shaft sensor. These should be located on the passenger side of the engine; the camshaft sensor is on the right bottom side of the water pump; the crankshaft sensor should be down and front of the camshaft sensor. Refer to service manual for exact locations, as vehicles may vary.

These two parts will affect the car not starting, however, it should not affect spark.

If you have replaced the distributor, have you replace the cap and rotor? If not, do so. Also, replace the plugs, wires, and if you still get no fire, you're coil is probably bad (I had to replace this on my van recently) Follow the coil wire (middle wire on the distributor cap) to the coil (actual part name is different, but slips my memory at this time) however, it's the same as a coil, they just gave it a new name. I have a manual for this van, as well as the 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan (same vans really), minor differences.

If this part replacement does not fix the problem, you may have a bad connection at the battery, on the positive, negative, and check the ground connection on the block/chassi (whichever it is bolted to); clean and reattach.

Check ALL fuses and relays in the vehicle. NOTE: DO NOT remove any relays or fuses while battery is connected. Disconnect battery, then procede to check fuses and relays (relays can be tested with a fuse tester. (found this little trick by accident one time (shere curiosity) - Relays have several prongs on them, and knowing which ones are live are tricky - so, simply adjust the tester prongs to the width needed, and touch two prongs at a time until you see the light on the tester light up. If the light does not come on (with a secure connection), then the relay is bad (just as the fuses would be) Also, when one is testing fuses, don't let the appearance of a fuse fool you - a fuse may look good to the naked eye, however, there is a spot on the fuse that you will never see, and sometimes this is the faulty area. If you are not sure, test the fuse - even if the light comes on, on the tester, the fuse may be weak; therefore, though it may be a tedious task to some, replacing all the fuses, allowing you to know that all are good, is the best way to go. Relays aren't necessarily as easy to do this with, since you can't see any part of them; and they tend to be a little spendy (depending on what the relay is for). They're not "expensive", however, they do cost more than a simple fuse, but necessary for it's intensions, so be sure to replace if necessary.

I hope this information helps you get your vehicle running. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Thank you again for choosing fixya.com.

Yes, I had this on my 97 Stratus....could be a couple of things....one, the there may be damage to the wire connector harness going to that sensor. That was the problem with mine. I replaced the cam sensor, crank sensor, coil pack, mas sensor..etc...it ended up being a burnt spot on the wire harness. They said this is a common problem for the stratus/breeze/cirrus/intrepid.....the most it could be is a bad ECM....there is a bad pin on it located half way down the side where the big connector is. It is the silver block with the big wire harness going to it in the engine compartment. Try wiggling that around...the harness area.

99 plymouth breeze 2.0L still dyes and check engine light came right back on after the camshaft positioning sensor was replaced..Heard something about clearing obd error code?


clearing the code is done by using a scan tool to reset the ECM
As it still dies and the light is still on then I suspect that you changed the wrong sensor
possible that it should have been the crankshaft sensor and not the cam shaft sensor
the error code will not effect the engine/ transmission performance
it is just a report to show you where the problem is

Resetting timing after replacing head gasket


Do you have the timing belt on and the tensioner set correct? If so, just rotate the crankshaft around until the notch on the crank sprocket is lined up with the pointer on the oil puimp housing (TDC). Now the camshaft sprocket's notch or pointer should be at the top and exactly in line with the mark on the rear timing belt cover. If it's not correct, you'll have to release tension on the belt, remove it, and set the camshaft to the mark. But before you do that, turn the crankshaft back (counterclockwise) just three notches. Then you can turn the cam to line up, then return crank to line up, and continue with belt installation, setting the tension, and re-checking timing marks after rotating the crankshaft a couple of revolutions. Once you know the timing is set to TDC, no further timing adjustments are possible, because the computer controls timing. I don't know how important it is, but just to let you know: Chrysler recommends after belt removal or replacement that one perform the "crankshaft and camshaft relearn alignment procedure" using the DRB scan tool (Chrysler's scanner device) or equivalent scan tool.
And the firing order on all four cylinder engines is the same: 1 3 4 2.
I hope this helps you out. Cheers.

Water pump replacement


Hope this helps you!

Removal & Installation
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
    NOTE After all components are installed on the engine, a DRB® scan tool is necessary to perform the camshaft and crankshaft timing relearn procedure.

  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Right inner splash shield
    • Accessory drive belts
    • Power steering pump and support the engine from the bottom with a jack
    • Upper and lower torque isolator struts
    • Right engine mount
    • Power steering pump bracket bolts, move the pump/bracket assembly aside
    NOTE It is not necessary to disconnect the power steering lines.

    • Right engine mount bracket
    • Timing belt and timing belt tensioner
    • Camshaft sprocket(s)
    • Inner (rear) timing belt cover
    • Water pump and discard the O-ring
  4. Clean all mating surfaces of any residual gasket material.
To install:

9ee0919.gif
Be sure the O-ring is seated in the groove before installing the new pump

  1. Install a new O-ring in the water pump groove.
    NOTE Hold the O-ring in place with a few small dabs of silicone sealant.

    WARNING Before proceeding, be sure the O-ring gasket is properly seated in the water pump groove before tightening the screws. An improperly installed O-ring could cause a coolant leak.

  2. Install or connect the following:
    • Water pump, torque the bolt to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm). Use a pressure tester to pressurize the cooling system to 15 psi (103 kPa) and check the water pump shaft seal and O-ring for leaks.
    NOTE Rotate the pump by hand to check for freedom of movement.

    • Inner (rear) timing belt cover
    • Camshaft sprocket
    • Timing belt tensioner and timing belt
    • Right engine mount bracket and engine mount
    • Power steering pump
    • Upper and lower torque isolator struts
    • Accessory drive belts
    • Negative battery cable
  3. Refill the cooling system.
  4. Use a DRB® scan tool to perform the camshaft and crankshaft timing relearn procedure, as follows:
    • Connect the scan tool to the DLC, located under the instrument panel near the steering column.
    • Turn the ignition switch ON, and access the “miscellaneous” screen.
    • Select the “re-learn cam/crank” option, then follow the instructions on the scan tool screen.
