Long crank time, gives the same code 3 times


p0340 is a camshaft sensor circuit malfunction, and that will effectively cause long crank times before starting and also can cause rough idles, sputtering, etc.. Could be the sensor itself being faulty, could be the ring gear giving the sensor it's position that is dirty/damaged/bent, could be the connectors/prongs being loose or dirty, could be frayed or corroded wiring, or could be a faulty PCM, although it's alot rarer for a PCM to go bad. So start by checking the wires and connectors and the sensor gear, as this will be the only thing not costing money to do. If all else seems good, change the camshaft sensor if you can find one at a decent price.

Keep getting code p1391


You may need a shop manual for this one.
Code 1391 means the crank sensor or cam sensor signal is not steady or dead at times.
The distributor acts as the cam sensor, so it could be that or the crank sensor, or a problem with the wiring harness.

I have a 2004 Jeep grand cherokee 6.0 4WD and a code P0320 came on what is that. My car will turn on then after a while if will turn OFF please help ......


p0320 is-- ignition/dist, engine speed input curcuit malfunction. Check the two hoses on either side of the engine that go to the intake. Any kinks or cracks will give crank error. I beleive you have a bad crank sensor. not sending signal to pcm. crank sensor symtoms-- No RPM Signal to PCM . also check wires to crank sensor.

I have a 2004 Spectra. Driving to work this morning, car stalled out twice. Cranked car later in the day and the engine sputtered and idling high to keep from dying. Engine smoothed out, but MIL came on...


Well, it is either a timing belt/chain going out or a bad crank position sensor most likely causing the other problems. The O2 sensor may be bad as well but that usually doesn't cause the Misfire. The vehicle on board computer is confused, that is why it is throwing all those codes. and why it gives you that 1166 code which isn't defined. Check the crank position sensor and the timing and timing belt first. Once you have that fixed the rest should clear up.

What is wrong when a 1998 ford expedition cranks but won't stay running unless I give it gas.?.


There should be a trouble code stored in the computer go to Auto Zone they will read the codes for free, the code retreived will help you narrow down the problem instead of guessing, this problem could be a number of things from a misfire, bad MAF sensor to a bad throttle position sensor.

2002 Altima 2.5 is now giving me problems like it doesn't want to start...it is not the alternator, battery or starter. Very frustrating because it starts when it wants to..


I would be looking towards the crank angle sensor failure. Its located right above the passenger side drive shaft, where it goes into the trans. Good luck

I have a 99 BMW ROADSTER and I have changed


If there is a code for the Air Mass Sensor I would recommend replacing it. Also a common problem is the intake cam sensor going bad and not giving a fault but will cause the car to stall.
