Bad valve timing or sensor/s connections. Read the codes. you will need a repair manual with the codes in it.

96 kia sportage wont fire backfired once very loadly no power to tps cam or crank sensor fuel pump will turn over but wont crank


Being it is a 96. It could be many different things, electrical. Really should have the codes read. Check fuses first. No power to the cam and crank is a no start situation.

88 chevy 2.5l, gets fuel will not start


An engine shut not backfire unless the timing is off, it has a burnt valve or an exhaust restriction. Since the crank sensor was the catalyst for the problem, I would again check it. It definately affects the timing for the fuel and spark

Dodge Stratus 2.4 DOHC shut down on highway won't start back up


I follow your story and found it very interesting. Looks like as the vehicle was driven decided to get relaxed. For what you done up to now you spent quite good amount of money with no results. Has at all passed from your mind whether all that cause by means of immobilizer activation or any fuel pump failure? The Knock Sensor want stop deadly the car. It causes misfiring,stalling etc.Hope this help, Good Luck.

Car died one day taking a right hand turn. checked fuel pump, changed fuel filter changed cap and rotor, checked mass air flo sencor. backfires gas out the intake. it will idle but as soon as u give it gas...


Pull that distributor cap and watch the rotor as it is cranked. If the rotor doesn't turn the timing chain is broken and causing your problem. If it doe look at the crank position and Cam Position sensors.

Hi My car engine just died on highway. Check engine light came on. Diagnostic showed P0340 CAM sensor error. Got it replaced but error still there. Got Fuel filter and the sensor on the engine Oil cae(...


The cam sensor is supplied a reference voltage by the engine computer and the cam sensor should generate a signal back to the engine computer above 50 rpm of the engine cranking. The problem could be a faulty purchased cam sensor (yes this happens sometimes although rare) fwiring connector problem at cam sensor or faulty engine computer.

I would start with the crank sensor. Have you scanned it for codes? When it dies will it start right back up or do you have to wait till it cools off?

1996 Dodge Ram 1500 kept stalling while driving now won't start


First off you can test the fuel pump 2 ways
1.have a assistant turn on the ign to on while you listen for the pump to run at the gas cap (gas cap off).
2.find the valve on the fuel rail looks like a a/c or valve stem,take the cap off and press the needle and if fuel comes out then it's not the fuel pump.

But from a lot of EXPERIANCE on dodge engines the stalling and restarting issue is ignition related i.e crank or cam sensor which will throw a diagnostic code of engine misfire xxx cylinders.

So If its one of those sensors then you will not have any spark,and staring fluids will not fire the engine.
As for the headlights flickering they get there power through a relay straight from the battery,so I would look at the relays under the hood and find the one for the headlights and swap it out with the horn relay as most of the relays will have the same numbers.

The crank sensor is about 70.00 and the cam sensor is about 50.
depending on where you get them (dealer or aftermarket)
the cam sensor is the round plastic thing under the dist cap,and the crank sensor is on the pass side under the head into the top of the transmission bell housing and it's a 2hr job to change because of it's location is really hard to get to.
Hint -take the breather off and place a rag over the intake and a board from the radiator core support to the intake to lay on,it has 2 10mm bolts and the wiring harness unplugs from underneath.
