Question about 2004 Dodge Sprinter

1 Answer

I have a 2006 dodge sprinter with 143,000 miles. One morning it would not crank. (27 degrees outside). I changed the air filter and it cranked but ran rough at idle. It ran fine above idle. After about 30 minutes it ran fine even at idle. It ran fine the rest of the day and into the next day. Then it starting to run rough and knock at idle again. It finally stalled and has not run since. It has been at a dealer now for almost two weeks and they have changed the fuel and checked the injector rail. They now want to install a set of injectors with no guarantee that the problem will be solved. They really don't know what is going on and now want to start replacing parts.

When the outside temp is below 30 degrees my 1994 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 will not start


lots of guesses. sure.. common here.
first would be a real tuneup , using the 60,000 mile list. for sure.
filters and spark parts. (my guess is you did)
1994 is a great year, all 93+ jeeps are good from 93 to now.
I presume this is USA car, and you scan it and there are no
DTC errors.????
seems its flooding ,
if 5% throttle makes it start, that is lack of air or flooding
if wont start and the super secret WOT crankings clear flood , then was flooded, Wide open throttle cranking , cuts all fuel (the secret)
so is , IAC/ISC stuck closed, chean it yet.
or injector leaks (pass the injector leak down test ,does it?0

got 500k miles o jeeps from 88 to 99+
and the ISC stick on them all.

the ISC is the electric, ldle speed control valve.
if it sticks closed, you cant get full air supply to start.
had to clean mine every 10 to 20k, miles.
until i found the magic, spray that cured that.
"klondike gun lube spray": looks like teflon after it dries.

that run rough started is called misfire.
and is flooding, (if injector are not leaking) its air supply wrong.
one more thing,
the ECT must read 30F when parked overnight, and was 30f.
see? a cold engine will be near ambient air, first thing, in the morning.

running old fueL:?
running summer fuel from last August?
the ECT sensor causes injections to match true temps.
make sure it reads right for all bets off.

clean ISC first. not shot gun parts
for that cash you could have got a nice scan tool.
like this.

Won't crank it up


Cars sometimes just aren't designed to operate at negative temperatures. Are neighborhood vehicles cranking? Garaged or out in the open air?

I have a 2006 ls impala with 126k on it. The last couple of days the computer in the dash,right after it's cranked, will say be careful of ice and the ac won't blow cool air. After a mile or so the...


Chances are the outside air temp sensor is defective. If it tells the computer outside air is below 32 degrees, you will get the warning and the air cond will not work because you don't need it.
The sensor is usually in the area in front of the radiator.
