SOURCE: car shaking and sputtering. just changed o2 sensor

Exhaust couldbe stopped up. remove the O/2 and run it for a minute with the leak and see if the power is back like it used to be. If it is change the stopped up part ( cat converter, Muffler or bent pipe) and drive on. When running with a bad O/2 the convetor can melt and cloggup ( happen all at once)

SOURCE: While driving my car suddenly started sputtering

this sounds like an intermittent wiring problem. the wires to one of the spark plugs, coils, or fuel injectors may be faulty or damaged. Mice love to chew on wires and you did mention that they found some small animal debris or maybe nesting materials. This will have to be tediously checked out with a multimeter. the good news is, once the damaged wire is found, it can be inexpensively repaired.

SOURCE: Chrysler Pacifica will not start.

I had the same problem, could not figure it out. Looked all over the inter net found a post that said something about the ground wire that had a bad connection. So i followed the found wire and this is what i found. attached photos, plus whati did to fix it.

What does the MIL code "PO 320" mean, please?


code p0320 refers to cam shaft position (CKP) sensor/engine speed (RPM) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --wiring--CKP/RPM sensor ---ECM
because the engine runs ok until it is on cruise control I would be investigating the RPM sensor for a fault
The cruise control takes its control from the RPM sensor and if that circuit is interminable the the cruise control doesn't know what rpms to maintain.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

The flashing light means the problem is serious enough to cause damage to the catalytic converter. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed. And get the plugs replaced.

The PO 316 is still misfires om first 1000 revolutions
so the shop did a poor job for you on resolveing the
cylinder misfires

Try a diffferent shop

Have to clean the MAF Sensor & replace upstream
oxygen sensors if over 100,000 miles

Need the correct oem spark spark plugs/any brand

No reason the gas filter should be clogged unless it was in
the car for 10 years

Fuel pressure should be checked

Need to check for cylinder misfires on a road test of 20
miles or more with professional software in Mode#06

I changed the crank shaft sensor but the car still wont start what else could be wrong if that was what the diagnostic said was wrong?


a bad camshaft sensor will cause a no start also. Engine Sputtering, Poor Acceleration, Stalling/Inability to Start. At low speeds a bad camshaft sensor will cause the car's engine to stall. The engine may also experience an inability to turn over, resulting in the car not starting. This may not happen all the time since the car's on-board computer will use the last readouts from the camshaft sensor to operate the pistons and manage fuel flow, which will allow the car to start; but if camshsft sensor. check engine light will be on, if its really bad.

good-day !

Van starts, runs fine, then puts at low speed and dies when idled


If you have a check engine light on, than it is likely a sensor that needs to be replaced. If filter has been changed, you may have weak fuel pressure, or a bad sensor. A leaky fuel injector will also cause this
