1989 Dodge Omni Stalls out

So I changed the oil pump in my 1989 Dodge Omni, and now when you start it, it sputters and eventually just cuts out. I asked someone I know and they said it sounded like one of the cylinders wasn't firing. Any ideas as to what is wrong here?

A sparkplug wire may have been loosesed or disconnected or damaged.
If you can't find it then wait until late evening when it's dark.

Open hood and start the car. You will see the sparks from the damaged/loose sparkplug cable. Don't touch it while ignition is ON. It will shock you!

If you "disconnected" any sparkplug wires when you replaced the oil pump, then they were not put back in the proper firing order.

Hope this helps!

Omni stall


I wouldn't think sensor problem. Need to monitor data to see what is not showing up. Some input to the PCM is not being seen. You need to monitor sensor data to see what disappears, it will lead you to the problem.

1989 Ford aerostar van sputters and stalls.


have you had the throttle cleaned? Sounds like your fuel pump may be getting hot and cutting out. Its possible it could be a faulty ignition module,but that usually just causes a no start not a suptter and stall.

Hey my omni wont start at the moment. we replaced the distributor cap and rotor and its not the map sensor what else could the problem be please help


If the car has current in the plugs and gas coming to the cylinders then it damn well start. Is the car being cranked? if yes, the battery is fine. Check the current in the plugs. The spark should be blue. The fuel pump working?

Car hard to crank and stalling


Hi

Expensive part to fit, as a guess.!

Have an exhaust gas tested first, this will confirm that the cat converter is shot or not !

Sounds more like a sensor problem to me .

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice Please !

Fuel gauge doesn't work on a 1989 dodge omni


Hi

Sounds like he forgot to reconnect the wires ?

Check this first, if they are OK, bridge them, and the fuel gage should read full.
If this is so, you can get a new tank unit.

Expect he has left the wires off !

Good Luck !

a FixYa rating would be appreciated Please !
