You may also want to check the timing line of the engine if they are aligned when installed. If the timing belt snapped while running the pistons may have hit the valves and it will damage the engine. Have this one checked to be sure.

I have 2004 Chrysler Concorde lxi. A year ago Had problem where not start. It self healed and run great till now. It would not start. Tries to but no fire. After cooled off, it running fine. Wassup?


If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and injector pulse. If your missing all three, check the cam and crank sensors. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction. Any applicable trouble codes?
With intermittent issues have to test when problem is ongoing.

Truck wont start after changing the spark plug and wires


It's already not start before you changed or after changed ?
If before. the timing belt or might be broken , burn fuel pump's fuse, injector's fuse or main engine relay.
If after. It's possible miss some wire that still not connect.

Cranks but wont start


Engine Cranks But Will Not Start

For an engine to run, you need three things to happen inside the engine. Compression, fuel and ignition, without any one of these components the engine will not run.
Basic Checks:

A. Test Fuses. Test both under hood power distribution center and the fuse panel under dash. This is done with a test light tool. The test light should illuminate on both sides of the fuse, if not the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced.
B. Testing Fuel Pressure Test for proper fuel pressure with a test gauge on the fuel rail, most throttle body injection cars (TBI) are between 13 psi and 17 psi. and most (DPI) direct port inject systems are between 40 psi and 55 psi. If no or little fuel pressure is observed and there is 12 volt power present the fuel pump, the fuel pump needs replacing.
C. Checking Timing Belt Test for compression by removing a spark plug and insert a compression gauge. Crank the engine over about 5 seconds the gauge should read between 125 psi and 165 psi, if no compression is observed remove front engine cover to inspect timing belt or chain. Crank engine to observe cam rotation, if the cam does not rotate the timing belt or chain has failed. (note: if the timing belt drives the water pump it is best to replace the water pump at this time)
D. Test for Injector Pulse Remove injector connector to insert injector test light (node) or volt meter. Observe light flash or gauge pulse while cranking. If light/voltmeter doesn't respond, an ignition distributor/crank angle sensor (CKS) or an ignition module is most likely your problem.
E. Test for Ignition Spark Remove spark plug wire, insert an extra spark plug into end of wire, rest spark plug next to a ground source then crank engine. You should observe a blue spark between the spark plug gap and ground source. If no spark is observed, an ignition coil, ignition rotor or spark plug wires might have failed. (always keep hands away from engine when cranking)
