The distributor is not the crank sensor. just because you have a code does not mean its a bad sensor. There are other reasons the code can set. The other half of the crank sensor is a magnet inside to cover. You need to inspect the magnet to be sure its clean and did not crack and fall down. The crank sensor can be checked for a signal to verify its not working. Go to youtube or do a search on how to test it. Just throwing parts on a car without verifying its bad can get expensive if you choose to skip the diagnostics.

My 2002 dodge stratus ran hot lost pressure of a hose and want crank after repair


Well you need a few things for an engine to run. Spark , Fuel, and Air..to start. Assuming that the plugs are the correct ones, and all the wires are connected properly & that the distributor cap was installed properly (AND SET IN TIME correctly). I would have to lean towards maybe a warped head. But there a quite a few variables that need to be eliminated before you can really begin to start down the road with a diagnosis. Good Luck

I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus that refuses to start in the rain. It will crank but it just wont turn over. Its a 6 cyl 3.0L engine, if that helps... Ive had many suggestions but none of them have panned out....


Hi, the most common reason for a car not starting in the rain is found in the spark plugs. Wire insulation can wear thin and this causes the voltage to arc to the metal of the car engine rather then going into the spark plug. You can check for this visually by opening the hood when it's wet outside and trying to start the car. You might be able to see an arc from the spark plug wires. Secondly check the distributor cap. Take a good physical examination of your distributor cap for any signs of a cracks. Also remove the distributor cap and check the inside of it for moisture. If you find any, wipe it clean; it won't work while wet.

2002 Stratus check engine light came on. Code said it has something to do with possibly the gas cap so I replaced it and had the light reset. It came back on. Also, I notice the fuel system does not seem...


I have a 2002 Dodge Ram and i have the same problem with my check engine light coming on because of the Fuel Cap. Most likely it is the sensor itself that needs to be replaced because i have done the same thing as you and replaced the cap.. Sometimes it shuts itself off after i fuel up but a couple days later it will come on again.

I have two codes that come up for my 2005 dodge


Multiple miss-fire and miss-fire on #5. I would first change the sparkplugs then replace the distributor cap and rotor. There is a good chance this will fix the problem, but no guarentees.

Im not getting spark to my spark plugs


Remove the distributor cap, so that the rotor is visible. Have an assistant turn the ignition to crank the engine over. If the rotor does not turn when the engine is cranking, then you need a timing belt or chain.

If the rotor does turn, then replace the coil.

1996 Dodge Stratus stalls when starting


I had this problem with my 99 Durango and went to AutoBeef.com to discover this was a major problem with 98 & 99 Durangos. The fix was easy -- PCM "brain" was exchanged with a refurbished PCM "brain" from an online PCM company in Florida. You can google as I can't remember name of company. I called them and they said - Yep this is the fix -- the guys told me 3 screws all I had gone to several mechanics and dealers -- none could figure it out. I was so grateful that someone gave me the clue I needed.
