Hi there the problem is we purchased an 89 Dodge Omni for $200.00 and haven't had to put much into it . We started to have a problem when you made a right turn the car would sputter and sometimes stall. Now the other day I was out and the car was fine and then all of a sudden it just died and would not start again . What do you think it could be? The engine light comes on solid for a second then flashes and it just won't start.

Re: stalled out and won't start now
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

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?
On the positive side of battery Julie is where your fusible links are,you say it's getting hot,I would follow all wires,look for burnt or swollen wires,they go to starter.Here's a wiring diagram,it shows that you have 3 fusible links leaving your positive battery,they need looking at,check all wiring in line with positive battery cable.Look at diagram number 25,enlarge to see.
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.
