    Thx Bman, the guages and lights seem to be fine...I'm thinking to spray starting fluid in the manifold just to see if it's a fuel problem

    you need to check injector pulses with a diode,you can rent them from auto zone,unplug an injector,plug in diode light, turn car over and see if the light lights up

I think I would check the basics first. Run a Compression test. If.you get a low reading you might want to see if your timing chain jumped time. Be sure.you.have proper residents at the Crank and Cam Sensor. Also check for proper sensor Alignment. I'm assuming this van has high miles.

CHECK PRESSURE & TIME THE AMOUNT OF FUEL COMING FROM THE OUTPUT OF YOUR FURL PUMP, THEN COMPARE TO OEM...id check &/or clran [replace?] your fuel filter first...

    you can do that,if it fires and stalls,make sure you have fuel pressure,if you do then you need to check injector pulses,go from there

  • Not Cranky Dec 07, 2012

    fuel pressure is at 48 psi (spot on) Injectors ohms at 12 (spot on) Hmmmm

  • Bman Dec 07, 2012

    Hmmmm is right

  • Bman Dec 07, 2012

    it didnt break the timing belt did it?

  • Not Cranky Dec 08, 2012

    from what I've read, the 3.3 has a chain and is pretty reliable...my tow dolly is hooked up to the DD and the "crappavan" is going to a shop...if I spent this much time hunting, my freezer would be full!

SOURCE: 1999 dodge caravan new pcm new crank and cam

If you have replace new cam sensor with no sparks and the coil are good putting out 12 volt, my guess would be the computer it self faulty. cam sensor sense the cam turning and send info to computer telling computer to disperse the charge from the coil pack to the plugs assuming relay, cam sensor, coil, plugs, and wires are good. make sure the cam sensor is put in properly and position.

SOURCE: i have a 97 dodge caravan 3.3 i have fuel

You have just about replaced everything that would cause a no start situation. Without being able to do any further testing, the only other thing that could cause that is the timing belt, check that, it could be worn, stretched out, and slipping. Good luck.

You could have a clogged Catalytic Converter which would cause the backfiring and non -starting issue.

Test at the spark plug if you are getting current there with a cheap spark plug tester, if not, it could be the spark box. ( it used to be an ignition coil on older cars ) double check the computer for codes which may lead to a cam sensor not giving the PCM information.

I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.

Check MAP sensor. If PCM gets wrong data from MAP sensor it should offset ignition timing and/or make fuel mixture too lean or too rich.
