Question about 1995 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Won't start, engine turns over with no spark

It ran fine yesterday, but we had heavy rain and I don't remember running through any major puddles. Today I'm not getting any spark and no voltage reading going into the coil's primary. For testing can I bypass another line in and what type of reading should I get. Thanks for any help. DS2

I can tell you this from my experience with my dakota is that the wire harness that goes from cpu to the carb/coil/transmission is notorious for burning on the manifold. I have 2 dakota's and both had same issue. Just remove the harness and check all wires to make sure none are exposed.

If you spray something into the intake & it runs,
then you obviously have no fuel pressure, so you
check that & the fuel pump

You not at a loss,your just doing nothing

I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem


if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

The engine got wet wont start, why? Where to start looking?


First check the air filter to make sure you didn't suck water into the filter.

Car ran good yesterday..won't start today..completely dead..no clicking when trying to start


Open hood and look at left side of engine compartment. Find the braid jumper going from engine block to fender. Grab hold and wiggle. It may be loose from corrosion at the fender end. If possible tighten. If not replace with a new heavy jumper from block to body of car. This a major design flaw since battery charging current and starter current is forced through this skimpy wire and connection. I replaced battery and alternator twice before discovering this defect.

2003 chevy silverado occasionally runs rough, now won't start


Could be the crank sensor or something in the wiring. Each cylinder has its own coil, so it would be something affecting more than one cyl.
If it won't start at all now, you will have to figure out if it is a lack of fuel to the injectors or lack of spark to the plugs, or something else.
Are you saying the check engine light does not come on when you turn the key on, or just not when it is running rough ?

1989 golf turns over, new distribitor and starting


Did you use electric grease on these parts, the plug wires,and coil pack need this grease on there. It prevents moisture and wetness from rain getting within the components and causing mis-fire. Did it rain or was it cold outside to produce moisture. Grease is $2 for small pack. I just worked on a 95 VW, changed the cap,rotor button, spark plugs, cleaned throttle body, new air filter, fuel filter. His would run fine, but would cut off sometimes up to hours until the moisture dried. After tuning it up, he no longer has the problem. He goes through water puddles to see if it will quit, but it hasn't yet. Worth a $2-$3 try.

Engine won"t turn over(crank)


I ran into this once also, and I remember that I just disconnected the battery for about half an hour.

Try that if you haven't already.

2000 Volkswagen Polo runs rough and dies in wet weather and rain


Girlfriend's 99 Polo had same issue. In fact it recurred yesterday! Anyway, am not expert, but it seems to be due to deposits building up inside distributor cap area and then getting damp in wet conditions, causing shorting of ignition 'signals'. Found solution is to clean inside cap every 6 to 12 months with a cloth and IPA (or water if you're stuck - just make sure to dry it properly!) and the problem goes away. Silly thing about her Polo is that there's no decent splashguard to protect the engine area from splashes from puddles etc. I've lost all respect for VW coz of the amount of silly things that have gone wrong with her car...! Hope this helps - sounds to me like it's exactly the same problem.
