Question about 1994 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Car stalls, tach needle pegs,engine turns over but will not start

3.5 ltr engine, runs perfect, when it wants to. While driving at a steady speed, more than 20 miles, the engine jerks, once, stalls, the tach needle pegs past 10 ,and the cruse control light will flash on one time.
After coasting onto the shoulder , I stop, and try to start the engine, the engine cranks but will not start. I let the car set between 20 min. and 4 hrs, it then starts, and runs like new. It has a new cam sensor, crank sensor, coil pack,spark plugs and wire set, a new fuel pump and filter, a new timing belt and waterpump. Was in the shop (dodge dealer) several times and they claim they cant find the problem.
PLEASE HELP !!!

Engine stalls at idle. hard starting sometimes.can run absolutely perfect for a day or two.when engine stalls tach goes completely dead right now. cleaned out inside distributor with Wd40, thought it might...


stalls can be cause by at least 50reasons (and more for parts bad)
the #1 reason from 1920 to now, never doing tuneups.
ever read the operators guide? on tuneups? by mileage?
bingo

bar none. !
ill list (not a guess) the top three not tune up missed.
1: egr leaks. clean it, but is in the service sched for 50k on most cars made.
2: timing belt slipped.
3: isc sticking ,clean it.

the 50 ways are all under misfire, misfire causes too low RPM at idle
and has 50 failure paths. I can post the link, to the ways.
but will not.
