Question about 1999 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Dodge Intrepid. It runs fine . If I don't let it warm up for about 10 minutes in the morning, it jerks and sputters when you drive for about 1-2 miles. P1391 came up on the scan tool. What could my problem be? I recently changed the cam sensor and crank sensor. P1391 code is intermittent failure.

SOURCE: My 1998 Dodge Intrepid is starting & then stalling only after a few seconds. The engine light came on, & the code was P1391. Any ideas?

That code is indicating an intermittant crank shaft or cam shaft sensor fault. Because the engine is starting then stalling, check to see if you have spark after the stall. If spark is still present, you are probobley looking at a cam sensor circuit issue. The cam sensor controls the fuel injector pulse. If the cam sensor fails on a chrysler product, the fuel injectors will not function.

Had similar problems occur on various Chrysler products manufactured since 1986. What I did was remove the computer from the car and then take a Dremel tool with wire brush attachment and lightly buff all the pins of the computer--tops, sides and backs. After this I then take a jewelers round file and insert the tip into each connector pin hole and very lightly file it to remove any corrision. When I reassembling the connector plug to the computer I placed a good size dab of silicon grease on the plug in the center (acts as a seal when seated). This has eliminated the problem on four different vehicles.

That code means that the connection to the battery had been interrupted in the last 50 starts. I dont believe that it has anything to do with the driving issue. The issue is causing the code. Check all the wiring to the battery and the fuse boxes and the ECM.

The sputter you feel under load is either a spark plug wire or a torque convertor shutter due to transmission fluid not being serviced properly, A code scanner connot dictate these problems, You need it tested by a pro with a "Computer" that can read pids (Sensors) as it runs to eliminate un needed repairs..

2000 dodge intrepid 2.7 sputtering, revs up


you need to ck some basics you could have a vacuum leak which would hide during warm up but cause havoc when hot,the leak would cause high idle then your pcm would try to lower idle to spec thru use of idle control motor causing surging idle ,also fuel pressure needs to be checked while acting up,may be more cost effective to pay for an hour of diagnostic.

Amattison:

Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.
