Does yours have a theft deterrent system ? SECURITY light on dash ! Before replacing parts you suppose to test for spark at a spark plug wire . check for fuel pressure . You really should take this to someone who knows what he is doing . You already spent more then it would have cost at the dealer !
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table is an organized approach to identifying a condition that causes an engine not to start. The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table directs the service technician to the appropriate system diagnosis. In order for the engine to start and run, the correct amount of good quality fuel must be properly delivered to each cylinder. The timing of the valve train operation in relation to piston position is also critical, as is mechanical compression of the air/fuel mixture.
The Engine Cranks but Does Not Run diagnostic table assumes the following:
?€¢
The battery is completely charged. Refer to Battery Inspection/Test in Engine Electrical.


?€¢
The engine cranking speed is acceptable. Refer to Engine Cranks Slowly in Engine Electrical.


?€¢
There is adequate fuel in the fuel tank.


When you turn the key to the on position does the check engine light come on an go off after a few seconds ? Did you check EFI relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . Why are you unable to check for OBD 2 codes ? Don't you have a code reader ?

If the crank sensor is not working, the engine management computer will not actiavte the fuel injectors. Verify the wiring to the crank sensor.

I would have looked to the crank sensor before the cam sensor in the first place. The crank sensor is what tells the computer where the engine is in relation to the ignition cycle. The cam sensor just tells the computer if it is on the compression stroke or the exhaust stroke.

The diagnostic test shows no signal from camshaft sensor. I checked all the wires for breaks, and I replaced the camshaft sensor code (0340). The car turns over good, but it will not start. Any ideas as to...


Cam sensor? or Crank sensor? I know that the generic definition of DTC P0340 is "No cam signal at PCM" however, a crank sensor can also be the cause of this code.

A cam sensor normally will not cause a no-start. I can cause a long crank time before starting. The cam sensor signal is only used to sync the fuel injectors. If there is no cam sensor signal the computer will start firing all of the injectors on every revolution of the crankshaft to get the engine running. A crank sensor, however, will cause a no-start condition because it is used to control spark. If there is no crank signal there is no spark...period.

Part of the troubleshooting chart for DTC P0340 on your vehicle includes inspection of the crank sensor and checking for the crank sensor signal at the Powertrain Control Module.

starting definately has a lot to do with the crank/cam position sensors, but it wouldnt have nothing to do with hot or cold weather, oxygen sensor will make the vehicle run too rich if its out, you will smell fuel very strong out the exhaust, that could make it run sluggish also, and usually if the mass air flow sensor goes out the vehicle wont start at all...
