I own a 1989 dodge omni and it's acting up bad. Some days it runs great others this happens.
It is hard to crank and then after you drive it for a little while it cuts completely off. Some people have said it is the converter. Any suggestions before I replace the converter.

if the motor oil was out I'm afraid the engine was damaged and some bearings of it make now noise and other problems.
then you need to look for a replacement motor from a junkyard or eBay....as rebuilding the engine might be too expensive... 24results for 1989 Honda Civic
You need a scanner. Does the PCM see the engine cranking?
Are the injectors firing (evidence PCM see's engine cranking)?
Does the system show it is firing? This is things you need to know to diagnosis a a no start/hard starting engine.
I've seen Dodges not seeing engine crank due to bad crank sensors. Usually jeeps.
Good luck and ask more if needed?
I wouldn't think sensor problem. Need to monitor data to see what is not showing up. Some input to the PCM is not being seen. You need to monitor sensor data to see what disappears, it will lead you to the problem.
If the car has current in the plugs and gas coming to the cylinders then it damn well start. Is the car being cranked? if yes, the battery is fine. Check the current in the plugs. The spark should be blue. The fuel pump working?
the pcm may have a cracked board, i had an 88 cavalier z24 with the same problem, replced the ecu and it ran fine, the problem is that the boards inside the pcm crack and lose connection, the next time it acts up open the glove box and try tapping on the pcm, if the car responds at all, the pcm is bad
hi there this sounds like a fuel problem to me if the fuel pump is faulty this will also happen make sure you have a clean new fuel filter in the car and make sure there and no splits in the fuel hose and if all Else fails check the fuel tank if something si blocking the flow in the tank this will cause no fuel to run to the car at all , fuel tanks corrodeinside and **** falls in to the fuel which is why you have a fuel filter make sure the out going line in the tank is free from blockage might mean tanking the fuel tank off and having a look or if theres a big enough opening were the fuel sender unit is you might be able to see ther without tanking the tank off
