Fuel pressure spark car wont start


code p0341 refers to cam shaft position sensor(CMP)sensor A bank1---range/performance problem===causes--insecure sensor/ rotor---air gap---wiring---CMP sensor.. I would pay attention to the sensor and the possible causes as listed because the timing of the engine is related to the position of the cam shaft. Timing is computer controlled and will not be "off" unless the CPU cannot get a definite position of the piston to set the timing

My 2000 Chrysler 300m wont start it turns over but wont fire its getting gas but wont fire


Are you certain it's getting gas, does it smell flooded?
Pull one of the plugs, see if its wet after cranking.
Ground plug and check for spark, if no spark, problem could be crank sensor or coil packs.

My 2002 jetta will crank but wont start


turn your key to the on position and see if you hear the fuel pump kick on, if so and you have gas in the vehicle then you should check to see if you have spark at the plugs. you can remove the sparkplugs one by one and check for spark by grounding out the end of the plug and cranking for just a few seconds. if you dont have spark it will be in either the spark plugs, the plug wires, or the coil packs.

Engine wont start, has gas and spark?


Crank or cam sensor. Have a OBD II reader plug into it and see if you have any codes.

96 Golf wont start .. turns over gets spark but wont start


Hate to do this hard way but assuming you have no test equip. Pull the starter and have the Auto Parts Store check it out on the bench tester for free.

Car wont start


ok inot to familiar with vw however if its a diesel motor then it runs on glow plugs i would belive that , that would be the problem. (atleast with semi's) however if you do have spark plugs to check for spark pull the spark plug with that goes from the ignition pack to the distributer cap, (the distributer caps main feed in not out) have a friend start the car, let the wire hang in view and look to see if a spark emits if no spark comes then it could be the distributer. the rotor in the distributer cap, or a busted timming belt...Anoyther way to test for spark is to pull a plug from the head, re-connect it to the spark plug wire that it was connected to, take a screw driver or something , wait a butter knife is the best tool actually, put it on the end of the spark plugs head, rest the butter knife on top of the alternator or anywher you can geta good ground(non-painted surfaces) and hold the the spark plug wire on the rubber part pushing the head of the plug on the butter knife which is on a good ground and turn the car over, just a couple times not really trying to start the car just a couple revolutions and look for a spark..if no spark is seen then the above problems are true for this problem......If you are getting spark, then you need to check your fuel pressurecontroll modulator , i believe its called, its the last gateway b4 fuel is disspursed through the injectors...let me know if this was helpfull.

96 vw jetta 2.0l will turn over but will not start


I had a problem like this on a 1997 VW Jetta 2.0L. I suggest you obtain a multimeter, a gas pressure gauge, and a used injector from a junk yard. You need to find if the car has spark if it is getting gas and if the injector is firing. Plug a used spark plug into say # 4 spark plug wire and ground end against the manifold or other ground. Have someone crank the engine and see if there is spark. If there is spark then disconnect the electrical connector and plug in the used injector and hold in your hand. Have someone crank the engine and if it clicks as the engine revolves the injector is firing. Now if you have spark and an injector that clicks then put the pressure gauge in the upper line going to the injector manifold. Use a T so that the fuel can still flow into the manifold. If these three things check out. You need to also verify the engine is timed correctly and the timing belt did not slip a few teeth. I had a problem with my crankshaft sensor. I bought a new one and although I was getting about a .3 volt ac signal, I still had no spark at spark plugs. I wound up getting another new crankshaft sensor and read 3 volts ac from the new sensor. I then had good spark Hope this helps
