Question about 1992 Dodge Spirit
I have replaced the rotor button and cap plugs and wirers plus the coil. I also replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump. The car starts with no problems now but as soon as you put it into gear it dies. I'm not sure what to do now please help.
Look under the hood to see some bare cables that connect the throttle pedal to the throttle body. Turn the idle screw clockwise 1/2 revolution at a time. Start the car, let it warm up and try it. Make sure the rpms aren't above 750 RPM or you'll risk crashing into someone. All this is assuming the car is in good tune, running well, has no major issues etc. These cars were pretty cheap and cheaply made so you may be limited by the age and lack of durability

I just went through the same issue with our 01 Intrepid. I am a 30 year ASE Certified Master Mechanic. Check the EGR Valve (located on the back of the block, passenger side). If it has any leaks, it can cause the problem you are experiencing. Also, if you have any surging during a "static" (in-park) idle, check the Idle Air Control Valve (IAC Valve) for carbon on the valve. Lastly, check your PCV Valve and the hose to the PCV. They tend to get very mushy and develop holes on the backside where you can't see them. Good Luck!

Then i think i'd be dumping some soapy water on the intake gaskets checking for leaks. ANd wiggle the **** out of all vacuum hoses. ( you probably did that) And if there aren't any, your cam could be tired. You got a tough one there. Hard to figure with a keyboard.

I changed all the parts I mentioned and finally I decided to try the crank shaft sensor and if that didn't work I was going to replace the cam shaft sensor. Luckily the crank shaft sensor worked but only after I replaced all the other parts. But at least now it finally started.

first you must determine if it has fire, and fuel pressure if so then injector pulse. Any OBD codes???? you really need a scanner to go any further without guessing.
