2.7 dodge engine will turn over but won't start. No codes

An engine needs three things to run..fuel, spark, and compression. These also have to happen in the right order, but with you having the timing chain changed you should be able to mark this one off. You need to make sure your have spark at the plugs and have fuel proper fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that the injectors are metering. And you also need compression.

Which is the correct timing mark on the DAYCO PB1001N harmonic balancer, for the 1967 Dodge D100's 225 CID 3.7L engine?

Bring #1 cylinder up on compression stroke, TDC this will tell you which mark to use.

I have a 2003 dodge stratus rt coupe it is misfiring on cylinder one all I want to know is on the distributor cap where is it located OR are the distributor caps for dodges numbered differently

Look at all the spark plug connections on the cap. There should be a raised number 1 next to the connector. You can also take out the #1 spark plug , turn the engine by hand with your thumb over the spark plug hole and when compression pushes your thumb off the hole watch the timing mark on the dampener. When the mark lines up with the TDC mark then the rotor on the distributor is pointing to #1 spark plug wire.

I have a 2001 dodge stratus, new distributor, spark plugs, has air compression fuel and spark and it cranks but wont turn, also just put a brand new crankshaft sensor in. Trying to figure out why it wont...

An engine needs 3 things to run...air, fuel, and compression....but they also need to happen at the correct time. If you have verified that the engine not only has enough fuel pressure to operate the injectors, but that the injectors are firing. That all of the spark plugs are getting fire, and that each of the cylinders have enough compression to run. I would think you have to check your timing marks.

How to time dodge 5.9 motor. it wants to fire but will not. the marks of the harmonic balencer vs. where the distributor button goes

when you install the distributor the rotor button should point at the # 1 plug wire on the distributor cap make sure you are on the compression stroke of the motor when doing this you can verify that you are on the compression stroke by removing the #1 spark plug and turning the engine over while holding your fingure over the spark plug hole it will push your finger off the hole you need to spin the engine .spin the engine over slow while doing this so you don,t pass the timing mark on the harmonic balancer.

How do I know if my timing on my car has jumped other than the obvious (the car quit running)

You cant tell unless you can get it running. Its computer controlled. If you have no spark or RPM signal then its most likely a crank sensor or ASD relay.

I have a 2002 Dodge Dakota. 3.9 liter V6. I have been having backfire issues and hesistation problems for a while I have replaced the spark plugs and wires, fuel injectors and o2 sensors. I don't think I...

It sounds like timing issues or the spark plug sequence is incorrect. To check the timing, remove the number one spark plug. Place a long screwdriver into the spark plug hole. Rotate the engine by using a ratchet and socket on the crankshaft pully nut (clockwise) and watch the screwdriver. When the timing marks in the crankshaft pully are aligned with "O" or "TDC" (top dead center) the screwdriver should be all the way out of the hole, just inside about 1 or 2 inches. If you rotate the crankshaft just a bit the screwdriver will start to go down, back the pully up to the 0 or TDC mark and the screwdriver will go back up. The is the properly timed engine.
Sometimes the engine will skip a couple of teeth due to a worn timing belt. Replace the timing belt and re-time the engine. Good luck, Jim

97 dodge neon wont start

Have you turned the engine over to see if all the timing marks line up. Did you check for spark on all cylinders? You said it's getting fuel, is that fuel pressure or injection pulse? What is the fuel pressure?
