    its getting fire and gas? so the cam or crank censor could be the solution

  • jchan1120 Jan 26, 2009

    i was 4wheeling and it started missing and would not stay running so we pulled it. for a coupled days when u would try to crank it would fire for a second and die,then it would not do nothing. now it wont do nothing

  • jchan1120 Jan 26, 2009

    it wont do nothing, but u can pull the plugs and they fire and get gas but wont hit a lick

    the crankshaft sensor is on the bottom of the motor the cam sensor is located on the cam cover they are both plugs i believe

  • Ronnie Houston Jan 26, 2009

    most likely the cam sensor is bad if youre getting fire it means the crankshaft sensor is good

  • Ronnie Houston Jan 26, 2009

    will it even try to turn over? if so and ur not getting any fire now replace both the cranshaft sensor and the cam sensor

My dodge neon shut off and wont start

What year? First check for spark at any of the sparkplugs.If you have spark and fuel pressure then take the mass air flow sensor off and clean the small thin wires inside with a non-chlronated brake cleaner and let it dry for 10-15 minutes then re-install it and see if it will start.

1998 GMC Sierra 2500 5.7L hard cold starts last month, now won't start cold w/o a little carb cleaner in intake. Codes for oxy sensors, mass air sensor and crank/cam position. Drove today, no power just...

starting definately has a lot to do with the crank/cam position sensors, but it wouldnt have nothing to do with hot or cold weather, oxygen sensor will make the vehicle run too rich if its out, you will smell fuel very strong out the exhaust, that could make it run sluggish also, and usually if the mass air flow sensor goes out the vehicle wont start at all...

Try changing the ignition coil.
The easy way to test this, is turn the ignition on,for about thirty second's ,then feel the coil ,if it is hot ,replace it.

Turns over but wont start

OK three essentials for a running motor......

1. Fuel - Check to ensure you have gas up to the engine. Check fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel injectors.
2. Spark - Make sure your system has electrical current to fire the plugs. Check your wires to the coil(s) the plug wires, cap & rotor and spark plugs and gaps.
3. Air - Check to make sure any air flow sensors are connected, most cars wont run with the MAF (Mass air flow) sensor disabled. Check your air filter to make sure its not dirty. if it is it can restrict air flow and cause your motor to flood its self out instead of allowing the gas to ignite, hope you found my answer helpful!

1995 Eagle Talon Will not start

check the mass air flow sensor, if this is bad then the ecu wont get a signal and it wont send the right amount of fuel to the cylinders causing a no start condition
