SOURCE: chrysler 3.3 vin r v6 mini van, starts then dies

Charlie. You have replaced the ECM on your van?.
Kedwin,, Your problem is, the computer on that 3.3 L.
Need to be programed with the VIN nember of your car.
The Antitheft System will disable the injectors due a incorrect VIN, Bucause the body computer is not recieve the correct pasword between 5 seconds after start up.
YOU have 2 options. 1 get a ALOHA Smith. some of they have the computer required to program ECMs.

The other option is: Get a new ECM from the dealer, They will program if ask for that.

NOTE:::::: Other way is . Put the body control module with the computer from the same car.

OK... I hope this work for yours.
If NOT letme know I can look for more information.
Thank you.

Locate your vehicle's computer connector (ALDL), most are on the lower driver's side. In some vehicles you might need to look around a little, on the passenger's side, and around the center console under a plastic cover. For more information, check your owner's manual. This device gathers information that was stored in your carsECM. This information ortrouble code can inform you the system or sensor that is malfunctioning. Look up the code in our diagnostic trouble code chart. After repairs have been made use the code scanner to clear trouble codes and recheck system. B. Testing Fuel Pressure. Test for proper fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge. Connect the gauge to the test port on the fuel rail. Fuel pressure reading's very depending on the system your in our vehicle, but most throttle body injection cars (TBI) are between 13 psi and 17 psi. and most (DPI) direct port injection systems are between 40 psi and 55 psi. To find out your vehicle system fuel pressure consult arepair manual. If little fuel pressure is present the fuel pump needs to be replaced.

C. Test for Weak Ignition Spark
. A weak ignition system can be a sign of a failing ignition component. Remove spark plug wire and insert an extra spark plug into end of wire, attach spark plug to engine ground then crank engine. You should observe blue spark between spark plug gap. If a yellow spark is observed, your ignition coil is weak and needs to be replaced. If your spark is not consistent you may need a ignition module.

D. Inspect the Main ECM Relay
. If the ECM relay fails it will shut down the engine management system. This relay carries high amperage and is prone to failure. To test install new relay then test drive to recheck symptoms.

E. Testing the Ignition Switch
. This test requires a electronic test light. When vehicle dies test the power side (+) of your ignition coil with the key on, the test light should illuminate. If your test light is not lighting suspect your ignition switch or ignition relay. To trouble shoot this condition you will needwiring schematic for your car.

Will not start with out holding gas pedal down while starting


you have "NO TOUCH" starting, so you should not touch the gas pedal during starting.

If you hold hte gas pedal to the floor during cranking, it shuts off the fuel supply so you can clear a flooded engine.

It started, when i put it in reverse it died. now it will not start.it turns over and acts like it wants to start but wont. there is gas in it.


Engage the "clear flood mode" by holding the gas pedal to the floor while cranking. This cuts down on fuel delivery to clear a flooded engine. As the engine starts and runs, let up on the gas.

2006, 3.0L V6 is hard to start


Based on what you described.
You have weeak ignition spark.The reason you have to wait for 1 hour to restart later to have all flooded fuel dried out so the sparks could ignite combustions.
1- Change all spark plugs.
2- Change air filter also
Have each spark plugs checked sparks when cranking to find out which one is really bad to replace the coil pack if applicable.

After these, if it still happens, then have the Cold start valve checked and replaced.

You don't need to go to a dealer. You can have any local shop to do this for you. Then you can control what you want them to do for you, not other way around for baloney recomendations from dealers. Good luck.

Moved my rx8 yesterday.i got ack in it this


verify condition by spraying some starter fuel in it.it should start and die if its a fuel problem.
if it still does nothing start checking any and all fuses.if all the fuses are good take out a spark plug and verify no spark.
if no spark check the ignition module.
it might be able to have it checked at autozone for free.but you will have to remove it.

1998 jaquar vanden plas won't start


The early V8s were bad to flood out. Try holding foot all the way down to floor when cranking.(This tells on board computer to shut off fuel while cranking) Crank like this for at least 45 seconds. Repeat this two or three times. The next time, while cranking, take your foot off the pedal for just a second, then back to the floor. These gives it just a little bit of fuel. Do this for five minutes or so. If it is flooded, you will hear that the longer you do this, the more the car sounds like it will run. If it catches, hold gas pedal half way down while running. This will clear the raw gas out of the system. If this doesnt work, in the trunk fuse box(take cover off) is a row of relays(brown 1 inch squares) in a "T" configuration beside fuses. Tap on them or swap them around. They are bad to stick. The second relay down in the center of the T should be the fuel pump relay. If these suggestions don't work, I would advise calling the dealer. But these are the most common faults. Good luck!

2002 odyssey injectors flooding


The owner's manual offers these tips on starting in cold weather. First, do not touch the gas pedal and crank the engine for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold the gas pedal halfway down and crank for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal all the way down and crank for 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal halfway down and crank for 15 seconds. During any one of the start attempts with the gas pedal part/all the way down, if the engine should start, slowly release the pedal so the engine will not race. Remember that fuel does not atomize as easily in cold weather and can be a problem.

When i crank my 96 taurus sometimes it floods out and wont crank.


Too much gas won't make it hard to crank. To thick oil or not enough antifreeze will. If it's flooding, slowly pump the gas pedal to the floor 3 times and then with the pedal held tight against the floor, crank the engine. This will open the butterfly wide open and will blow the extra gas out.
