2001 Grand Caravan 3.8 code says camshaft or crankshaft sensor how to tell which one it is van stumbles and cuts out from time to time and at low RPM occasionally stalls out

Crank and cam has the same power and ground wires tied together. The signal return are separate wires to the PCM. Guessing, I would say you have a bad/ broken wire at the crank sensor. The wires tend to break at the plugs. When you loose the cam sensor, the PCM goes into default mode. It will still fire the injectors. You just have lower gas mileage. When the crank sensor dies or can't be read. The engine will not start. No fire to the coil/s or plugs.

My jeep is turning over but wont start. I replaced the coil and it will occasionly spark and attemt to start only to soon die then it wont get another spark at all. How do i fix this??

Jeeps most common problem is with these particular vehicles are the crank sensors. May also have a bad reluctor. which is part of the flywheel. What you need to do first, Need to first remove the crank sensor which is on top of the bell housing. Remove it and inspect for cracks if you see any cracks replace it. and reset gap. You can use a small piece cardboard like the thickness of an oil filter box,tape it to the tip end of the sensor,and reinstall. After inspection or replacement of the sensor, start vehicle,Also keep an eye on your tachometer . Your tachometer should slightly come up when cranking. If not replace sensor.The crank sensor is a part of the ignition system, the pcm needs to see where top dead center is or where #1 cylinder is to determine when to spark, simply put. So the pcm knows when to fire.

98 ford f150 has 4.6 motor cranks but no power to coils . Could this be a crank censor.

with any scan tool attached, you crank for 5seconds
and the tool will tell you what is or is not bad.
eg: if no DTC for Crank or cam sensors, its NOT THEM.
any OBD2 scan tool sold in USA works on this car. 1998,
any. the trick is.
1: keyon
2: crank for 5 full SECONDS.
3: release key , not off, wait for 1min.
4: see the DTC codes?????????
the PCM makes spark if the PCM is happy with the crank sensor
then it then uses what is called and igitor to fire the coils

better is to read the FSM on this car. (BOOK from dealer)

crank +cam >>>> PCM >>> ignitor the coil, the spark plus.
this is the path, note how the PCM is in the middle.
if it sees either sensor mess up 1 out of 10 times, it pukes, DTCS
like a swiss watch.

2000 Plymouth breeze... no spark... no start condition. Test light. Checked for power to coil all three wires lit up. Like WHAT???? Thinking can sensor? Or crank? Crank sensor would make only #2,3...

The dark green orange wire is voltage from the ASD relay. The other two wires are ground signals from the PCM. The PCM or computer takes the signals from the cam, crank, and temp sensors and decides when to fire the plugs and injectors.
You'll need a shop manual to get the test procedures for the coil and PCM. Its possible the cam and crank sensors are not in sync.

Im not getting fire on my 2001 jeep cherokee. coil rail is good and the cam position sensor is new and still no fire. im getting fuel but i think there is no fire. any idea as to what im overlooking? jeep...

If no spark at the plugs, engine cranking, did you check primary voltage at the coil assemble, dark green wire with orange tracer, engine cranking, use a test lite on the wire check for voltage. If no voltage that will lead back to asd relay. There are some fuses involved. I believe the computer has to see both the cam and crank sensor signals or it won't ground the asd relay. All I can do is make testing suggesting.

1999 Dodge Ram 2500 P/U 5.9L Gas V8 Standard cab Auto transmission 4x4 @ 38K miles. Started and ran January 10,2010 but will not start anymore. Tried Starting fluid down the throat of the carb - nothing....

This could be a number of things...
Crank sensor, cam sensor, coil, PCM, spark control module, ect.
Start with the sparkplugs, make sure they are firing if not work your way back from there spark pligs, wires, coil, control module, cank and cam sensors, PCM this is what i would do if this rolled into my shop.

1995 ford explorer doesn't start, crank & cam sensors replaced

Does you fuel pump delivers fuel. Is it there a spark.

1999 mitsubishi eclipse 2.0L na. no start. will crank. no power to coil pack. no codes. cam and crank sensor replaced. still no start or spark.

On this model engine, the power to the coil pack is delivered directly from the power transistors located inside the PCM.
If you are not getting the signal to fire going into the coil, verify you are getting a good waveform from the crank angle sensor, and that the wiring from it to the PCM is intact. If the crank sensor is delivering signal to the PCM, and the PCM is not generating pulse via the internal power transistors, the PCM has failed (the power transistors blow open, it is fairly common on this Chrysler PCM).
