SOURCE: Car Flooding-Not starting

I had the same symptoms. I had to count the correct number of teeth from the crankshaft pulley to the cam pulley marks.It is a different number of teeth to each pulley.It turns out that I was off by one or two teeth on one cam.

SOURCE: 1993 LEXUS ES300 FLOODING AND FUEL VAPOR OUT

ok, i tell you 3 possible causes.
check maf sensor connection , check fuel pressure regulator (max press fuel in rail 40 psi) , check engine compression (min 95 psi ) if less this cause spark plugs wet and not start

SOURCE: 95 dakota cranks but wont start

Well I'm a chrysler master tech & this is a little odd. There's alot of things not in the question so here are mine. I'm assuming it's a 3.9 no 4wd. When did this happen? When you check for power do you have some one turn the key on while you check? If still no power then make sure all the fuses are good from the one under the hood to the one inside the cab. Next be sure to check the grounds. You'll need to by a manual like a Haynes in order to get a decent wiring diagram. In a worst case senario the main power box under the hood has an issue & the asd relay gets no power,hence no start. Ran into it on a 95 caravan & it took a week to figure it out & no replacement was available & I had to hard wire it so it would run. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: have a 97 dodge 318 plugs flood as soo as you try

check your coolant temp sensor. possible map sensor.
The MAP sensor is fitted to the front of the throttle body except on 4.7L and 8.0L engines where it is installed on the intake manifold.

  1. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  2. On throttle-body mounted MAP sensors, inspect the L-shaped tube from the throttle body to the MAP for cracks, blockage, and damage. Repair as necessary.
  3. Unplug the MAP sensor connector.
  4. Test the MAP sensor output voltage at the MAP sensor connector between terminals "sensor ground" and "sensor signal". With ignition ON and the engine OFF , the voltage should be between 4-5 volts.
  5. Check voltage across the same terminals with the engine running at idle at operating temperature. Voltage should be 1.5-2.1 volts.
  6. Test MAP sensor supply voltage at sensor connector between terminals "sensor ground" and "5v supply" with the ignition ON and engine off, voltage should be 4.5-5.0 volts.
  7. Test the MAP sensor ground circuit at the "sensor ground" of the MAP connector, voltage should be less than 0.2 volts. If not inspect for open harness from pin 4 of PCM harness and terminal A . If no voltage is present, proceed to the next step.
  8. Turn the ignition OFF .
  9. Disconnect the PCM harness from the PCM.



WARNING Testing the wiring harness with the PCM still connected can cause serious damage to the processor. ALWAYS disconnect the PCM before testing the wiring harness, unless instructed otherwise.

  1. Test the MAP sensor output voltage at the PCM connector. At the PCM cavity A-27 , the voltage should be about 5.0 volts.
  2. Check the voltage at PCM cavity A-17 . It should be 5.0 volts.
  3. If all of the above tests pass, plug in PCM wiring harness and MAP sensor connector.
  4. With the ignition in the ON position, and the engine OFF , remove the tube from the throttle body to the MAP sensor.
  5. Connect a vacuum pump to the nipple on the MAP sensor, and pump the sensor to 20-27 in. Hg. Check the sensor output voltage, it should be below 1.8 volts. If not, replace the MAP sensor. If the voltage is OK, proceed to next step.
  6. Relieve vacuum pressure on the sensor, then check the output voltage. The voltage should be 4-5 volts; if not, replace the MAP sensor.
  7. Install the air cleaner assembly.

Overheating exaust system 1997 dodge dakota has caused exhaust pipe failure 3 times in past 60 days. Mechanic said unburnt fuel is burning inside pipe and causing failure. True?


I suspect that it is over fuelling and the cat converter is blocking the exhaust
check ignition timing as it is probably too far retarded which causes later spark in relation to the valve timing position where the exhaust valve is opening allowing burning fuel into the exhaust manifold,

My 1992 dodge Dakota is skipping and wants to stop. What is wrong? I've already changed the gas.


use a hand vacuum pump to test the egr valve. if you put about 5 inches of vacuum on it you should see movement of the pintale shaft. if not, it may need cleaned or replaced. Check the vacuum port and make sure it is not blocked or plugged.

I have a 1992 dodge dakota and awhile back i blew the engine. well we rebuilt it having it plained down and everything...then one day i was driving it and it just died and wont start. Its getting gas and...


when you say it has gas are you sure fuel is being injected by the injectors?
if not sure get whats called a noid light, sold at all large auto parts chain stores.they are inexspensive.plug it in to an injector connector and have someone crank engine if it blinks then injector signal ok. the light will give a dim blink which is ok.
no blink check for a blown fuse/loose connector/short to ground from engine to computer.
other causes of no start would be;
timing chain slipped
plugged exaust [melted down cat converter]
low fuel pressure
a major sensor failure,map sensor/throttle position sensor/crank,cam sensor
pcm [computer] failure or wireing to it
ignition switch
low compression
