If you have replace new cam sensor with no sparks and the coil are good putting out 12 volt, my guess would be the computer it self faulty. cam sensor sense the cam turning and send info to computer telling computer to disperse the charge from the coil pack to the plugs assuming relay, cam sensor, coil, plugs, and wires are good. make sure the cam sensor is put in properly and position.

You could have a clogged Catalytic Converter which would cause the backfiring and non -starting issue.

99 dodge stratus dies while driving


Were the plugs covered in oil? With the plugs that go through the valve cover you might need new seals. Did you replace the plug wires? You need to scan it for codes. It's most likely a missfire, but it could be a bad speed sensor (also called, VSS vehicle speed sensor, cam position sensor,or crank position sensor).

Please help


had the same problem in mine we found it was the cam shaft positioning sensor. my van had shut off and we had no current to plugs and at first thought coil pack but still nothing. no power to coil pack. then found sensor no good. also we replaced the sensor with an after market sensor and worked fine for couple months then started to shut off again. after a little research found we needed original cam shaft pos sen from dealer and since then no problems. hope this works for you.
