So... I'm starting to get just a bit frustrated... after installing the new PCM, my dodge avenger, 96 2.0L ran for 5 days then went out again, fuel pump works and I've got spark but no start..


after all that work its terrible that something else goes bad however since you do get spark and fuel i would say crank or cam sensor but then if one of those goes bad it wont allow engine to turn over and would shut fuel pump off. so there is only one thing left to cause it you have a short in the harness somewhere maybe just a lose connection on the cam or crank sensor put dieelectric grease in all your connectors

I have a 98 jetta 2.0 k2, recently replaced dist. And ignition wires after car would not fire after running fine previous day. Serviced car and very next day same problem occured only to learn that it may...


If you just changed the dist and wires the timing may be off or the wires may be in the wrong position. You shouldn't have to replace them again. The cam position sensor and the crank position sensor are different and you should be able to change them yourself. You can go to your local Auto Zone and they can print you step by step instructions (USUALLY) or at least show you where the sensors are located.

96 2.0 jetta. started up as usual then died 2 mins later. Will crank but not turn over, no spark from the plug wires. what should i look for?


Are the injectors pulsing on and off? If not, it is your Crankshaft position sensor or the wiring to it.

Is the ignition system coil on plug or what?

96 vw jetta 2.0l will turn over but will not start


I had a problem like this on a 1997 VW Jetta 2.0L. I suggest you obtain a multimeter, a gas pressure gauge, and a used injector from a junk yard. You need to find if the car has spark if it is getting gas and if the injector is firing. Plug a used spark plug into say # 4 spark plug wire and ground end against the manifold or other ground. Have someone crank the engine and see if there is spark. If there is spark then disconnect the electrical connector and plug in the used injector and hold in your hand. Have someone crank the engine and if it clicks as the engine revolves the injector is firing. Now if you have spark and an injector that clicks then put the pressure gauge in the upper line going to the injector manifold. Use a T so that the fuel can still flow into the manifold. If these three things check out. You need to also verify the engine is timed correctly and the timing belt did not slip a few teeth. I had a problem with my crankshaft sensor. I bought a new one and although I was getting about a .3 volt ac signal, I still had no spark at spark plugs. I wound up getting another new crankshaft sensor and read 3 volts ac from the new sensor. I then had good spark Hope this helps
