Sounds like a bad distributor. Had you pulled a spark plug out you may have found them wet with gas after cranking. If they are wet the crank sensor is working since both injector pulse and coil pulse rely on crank signal.

The distributors are known week points in the ignition system and used to be common when theses cars where still on the road. A reman will run you $250 U.S.

Your distributor definately needs to be checked. Replacement is not all that bad Dodge Avenger Distributor eBay here is a quick link to several options.
The coil is part of the distributor - if the spark plugs appear wets try this fix for fuel fouled spark plugs.
I ran into numerous instances of "Brand New" cars still on the dealership lot with "No Start" fuel fouled plugs where I needed to pull out the spark plugs / crank over the engine to clear the cylinders of excessive fuel / clean the plugs / reinstall and "Wha-La" Start up. For some reason those engines can fuel foul spark plugs. The back bank is hard to get to (under the air intake plenum) so try just doing that with the front bank - which you can get to easily. That had worked for me in the past - the start up may need the throttle pressed to the floor for Clear Flooded Engine mode. It will probable chug at first but if it works it will clear the fouled rear bank plugs.
Let me know if that works for you

Check the distributor center wire for spwrk, coil output, and igniter signal to coil
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1997 dodge dakota v6 engine wont start replaced

turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.

SOURCE: not turning over

it may be out of gas. all chrysler products especially the trucks/jeeps had problems with running out of gas when the guage would say between 1/8 tank to 3/8 tank. heres how to check. open hood remove cap on fuel rail pressure check port [it looks like a tire valve cap] crank engine briefly then push the pintle in the pressure check valve[it is the same setup as a tire valve stem] if air comes out or a little fine sray and air its out of gas. if no air or gas comes out then the fuel pump isnt working. if its just out of gas you can buy a new fuel level sending unit to fix the guage.

SOURCE: I have replace the spark plugs, wires, coil, crank...

You replaced all kinds of parts for no reason. Do you really think, at this time,that even one item was your problem.
I would suggest going to a repair shop,as you already spent more than, that would have cost,in the first place.

1997 dodge stratus wont start has no spark and no trouble codes.


The automatic shutdown (ASD) relay will turn off power to the coil(s) and fuel injectors if the PCM is not receiving a signal from the crankshaft position sensor. You can check the ASD relay, but the problem is almost always a crankshaft position sensor or the wiring/connectors between the PCM and that sensor.

01 dodge dakota 3.9. no power to coil replaced engine control relay still no power can jump across relay get power but no start and get code for no rpm


If you're getting a code for no RPM, the PCM is not receiving a signal from the crankshaft position sensor. The PCM uses the signal from the crankshaft position sensor to fire the coil/spark plugs. Check the wiring to the crankshaft position sensor and check the sensor itself.

I have a 1997 dodge average 2.5 v6 24 value its not getting spark to plug wires have replaced crankshaft positioning sensor and still no spark please help.


You need to check wiring first. After that would be the ECM. You need wiring diagrams/pinouts and a volt/ohm meter.

To much difference between 04 and 97. To use an 04 ECM, you need the trucks complete wiring harness. Then you would have to change the transmission also. You better get in line to sue him also..

Where is the location of crankshaft sensor in VW passat,1995,2,8?


OPERATION
The crankshaft position sensor detects gaps in the sensor ring corresponding to TDC of each cylinder. The sensor uses a permanent magnet, core and coil. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. This in turn varies the voltage signal to the ECM. The ECM uses the signals for ignition timing and fuel synchronization.
TESTING
Audi A4 2.8L
  1. Disconnect the electrical harness connector.
  2. Switch the DMM to its resistance range and connect it between the CKP sensor connector terminals 1 and 2 , using jumper wires from VW 1594 test kit. The DMM should show approximately 1,000 ohms.
  3. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
  4. If the specified value is obtained, connect the DMM between terminal 1 and 3 (GND), then between terminals 2 and 3 (GND). The DMM should show infinite ohms (open).
  5. If the specified value is not obtained, replace the crankshaft position sensor.
  6. If the specified value is obtained, check the wiring for continuity or short between crankshaft position sensor and ECM, using a wiring diagram.
  7. Connect a VAG 1598/19 test box to the ECM harness connector.
  8. Check the CKP sensor shielding for continuity by connecting a DMM between terminal 3 and engine ground (GND). The DMM should show a maximum of 1 ohm.
  9. Check the wiring for continuity between the CKP sensor connector terminal 1 and the test box socket A9 , then between the CKP sensor connector terminal 2 and test box socket A10 . There should be a maximum of 1 ohm.
  10. If the specified values are not obtained, check and eliminate any short or open circuits in the wiring.
  11. If the wiring is OK, replace ECM.

Passat 2.8L
  1. Disconnect the harness connector from the crankshaft position sensor.
  2. Switch the DMM to its ohms range.
  3. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 of CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
  4. Resistance between terminals 1 and 2 must be 500-700 ohms.
  5. Connect the DMM to terminals 1 and 2 , then 1 and 3 of the CKP sensor harness, using adaptor leads from VW 1594 adaptor kit.
  6. The resistance must be infinite ohms.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the electrical connector from the sensor.
  2. Remove the crankshaft sensor retaining bolt and remove the sensor.
  3. Replace the O-ring and lightly lubricate it with clean engine oil.
Installation is reverse of removal.

---
To remove the sensor:

  • Disconnect the wiring harness.
  • Unbolt the sensor mounting bolt.
If the crankshaft timing sensor or the camshaft reference sensor is removed, follow this procedure when the sensor is replaced:
  • Thoroughly clean the sensor tip and install a new spacer on the sensor tip. New sensors should be supplied with the spacer installed.
fr_24.15.gif

Spacer on crankshaft timing sensor and camshaft position sensor.

  • Install the sensor until the spacer lightly touches the sensor ring, and tighten the sensor mounting bolt 105 in.lb.

Look for the sensor on the axis of the crankshaft near either end of the engine.

Good luck on locating this sensor.

I need to know what the diagnostic code 340 means for a dodge 1997 intrepid


A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
  • a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
  • the camshaft position sensor may have failed
  • the PCM may have failed
  • there exists an open circuit
  • the crankshaft position sensor may have failed
Possible Solutions With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
  • Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
  • Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
  • Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
  • Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
  • Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
  • Diagnose/replace the PCM as required

I am not getting spark out of two of the 6 coil posts, I have changed the coil but still no spark from the same two positions. 2000 Dodge caravan 3.3


check or replace your crankshaft sensor. this senses notches on the crankshaft that tells the coil when to spark. follow the wire from the coil pack back to it. if the sensor and the crankshaft gear are ok, you have a computer issue.
