Question about 1995 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

1995 Dodge Intrepid ES 3.5 v6 cranks but won't start

This is my daughters car. I have replace the crank and cam sensors within the last three months. This fixed her stalling problem. I checked the fuel rail and it is getting gas. I also pulled a plug wire and it is getting spark.
The local garage I go to doesn't have the correct chip for their computer to check for engine codes. They are saying it may be the timing belt.

My thought may also be the engine control module. Does anyone have any ideas? Any way to check the timing belt or control module without a computer? I do have an old timing light

    Thanks, Live in Ohio. Not sure it is in the US sometimes. I have a NAPA, Advance Auto Parts, and O'Reilly's. I will check with them. Any easy way to see if the timing is off?

    It does not backfire, just cranks and engine does not fire at all.

Is there any compression??? If the timing belt is broken, the valves will not be moving. It will be making a higher-pitch cranking sound if its the timing belt.

You don't say what engine is in it (2.7 or a 3.2) but you need to check to see if it is getting spark at the plugs-it may be the crank sensor, weak links in Chryslers of this era. pull a plug just to be certain it is getting gas, but I'd guess it is a crank sensor.

The coils only power up during cranking check that first. If it sounds funny cranking,ie. cranks faster or slower than usual,then he's probably right about the timing belt. If it jumped the heads need to be replaced or rebuilt,both costly. Would be cheaper to put a used engine in.

Vehicle Stalls


you should have engine light on and engine codes
if its the cam or crank sensors, shouldn't be the starter i would start with the ingition switch.

Vehicle stalls sometimes


could be either the cam sensor or crank sensor , but I would check the crank sensor first , this sensor will not cause a check engine light either

check the asd relay swap it with another like it. also check fuses and old car alarm if it had one.the cam and crank sensor will not affect fuel pressure. the cam sensor should not stop this car from starting. but the crank sensor will. good luck.
