Question about 1989 Dodge Omni

1 Answer

Stalled out and won't start now

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.

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 corrode inside 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

hope this helps thanks for Using FixYa

Need help troubleshooting 89 omni?


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?

1988 Dodge Omni won't start


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.

Omni stall


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.

89 K5 Blazer 350 TBI cranks but won't start... the rad hose blew, i fixed it then the next day it bogged and backfired, ran fine cold, but when warmed up it would lose power and stall when trying


Have you checked Google I found this hopefully it's not your timing or it may be flooded but doubtful have you tried spraying starting fluid into the intake while cranking it

1989 Dodge Omni Stalls out


A sparkplug wire may have been loosesed or disconnected or damaged.
If you can't find it then wait until late evening when it's dark.

Open hood and start the car. You will see the sparks from the damaged/loose sparkplug cable. Don't touch it while ignition is ON. It will shock you!

If you "disconnected" any sparkplug wires when you replaced the oil pump, then they were not put back in the proper firing order.

Hope this helps!

Car hard to crank and stalling


Hi

Expensive part to fit, as a guess.!

Have an exhaust gas tested first, this will confirm that the cat converter is shot or not !

Sounds more like a sensor problem to me .

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice Please !

John.
