Did you replace that stuff because it wouldn't start or after you replaced it you couldn't get it started. Check the crank and cam sensors

How do i change the timing chain


Disconnect the negative battery cable with a ratchet and socket, read the serpentine belt routing diagram located under the hood, then release the serpentine belt tensioner using a ratchet and socket, and carefully remove the serpentine belt from all of the pulleys with your hands. 2 Install the new belt according the routing diagram, then ease the belt onto the belt tensioner pulley and tighten the tensioner with a ratchet and socket.3 Reconnect the battery cable and start the car to test the belt.

    I have a 99 Caravan 3.8l that won't start. It will turn but doesn't start. I've changed plugs, wires, crank shaft positioning sensor, coil pack, and tcm still won't start. Now I'm told...


    I had a caravan that would not start as well double check and make sure you have a spark at the plugs. I replaced everything I could think of as well and it turned out that the timing belt was broken if there is spark at the plug than you know you have a good timing belt I know this does not answer your question about the pcm serial numbers but I wanted to give you another thing to check before getting into the sensors.

    Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


    you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

    Turns over won't start timeing chains good oil leaking from valve cover gasket plugs not firing all the time could oil have damaged cencer on end of cam shaft how can I test it


    Check or replace coil pack, and replace spark plugs. Also check if fuel pump is functioning, if not or when you turn the key on and won't hear a 3-5 sec buzz sound, may have bad pump. Fuel pump and coil pack is most common reason that engine turns over and doesn't start.

    Engine misses, then shut off, won't start again


    not sure about the 2008 model, but the earlier ones had coil pack problems. it looks like part of the rocker cover with around four torque screws holding it down and one multi plug at the end on the n/s of the engine. oh they used to blow the fuse at the same time for the engine management. 30amp dooor pillar/"A"post area. test by removing the coil pack, fitting the spark plugs into the plug outlets. earth the body of each plug and crank the engine, you shoukld see a spark, if not then there are other tests before confirming the coil pack. let me know how you get on.

    2001 dodge grand caravan ex 3.8 does not turn over


    Try checking relays in the fuse box under the hood. If all checks out ok, check timing belt/chain.
