Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze

1 Answer

My 1998 plymouth breeze wont get spark. a scan tool was used which gave a code for the cam positioning sensor. i replaced that and still no spark. please help. when it happened i was driving and the power to the car just went real low and when i stopped at the red light the car stalled. it started back up enough for me to go 2 blocks and then it died. i have power to the car but no spark. if the timing belt jumped, would that cause it to not get spark and give that code?

Did you check the coil or coil pack? Also, I'm pretty sure that the crankshaft position sensor regulates the spark and not the cam sensor.

SOURCE: How do I change the

look around the power steering pump, (Under or maybe behind) you should see a belt tensioner, loosen it and any other brackets close to that have a sliding point, once loose, the belt should slip right6 off, pay close attichion to the way it comes off, you don't wanna put it back on backwards, or your water pump will run in the wrong direction and cause it to over heat

SOURCE: my car jump time

#1 are you sure it jumped time?#2 how do you know this? if in fact it has jumped time you will need to have the timing belt replaced.the average interval for replacement is 60,000-80,000.it is also a good idea to replace the water pump at the same time as it is driven by the timing belt.

SOURCE: 1998 plymouth breeze left rear brake stays on

Your E-brake cable needs a to be loosened up and you need to see if the E. Brake is locking up, if the cable is not frayed then you have a problem with a check valve in the master cylinder or in the T where the line goes to the left and right. If you want to know how to check out the hydraulic problem it is more detailed, but first you must make sure that the mechanical part is not binding up.

SOURCE: 1998 plymouth breeze is hard to steer. The power

I would expect teither the power steering pump or the steering rack has failed. The good fluid in the unit is just not being put to use.
I hope this may have helped,

SOURCE: 1998 Plymouth Breeze, heater does not blow warm

Check your coolant level. Replace your thermostat and flush coolant system. If you bought used and it never has worked, make sure that the heater core has not been bypassed. If it has, it will probably have to be replaced(was probably leaking on previous owner)

99 plymouth breeze 2.0L still dyes and check engine light came right back on after the camshaft positioning sensor was replaced..Heard something about clearing obd error code?


clearing the code is done by using a scan tool to reset the ECM
As it still dies and the light is still on then I suspect that you changed the wrong sensor
possible that it should have been the crankshaft sensor and not the cam shaft sensor
the error code will not effect the engine/ transmission performance
it is just a report to show you where the problem is

1997 breeze is shooting codes 12 46 43 55


OBD Code 12 - No Distributor Reference Pulse (Diagnostic Test Active) The Engine Control Module-ECM uses the distributor reference pulse to calculate the engine speed. On newer engines, the Crank Shaft Position Sensor performs this function.

Symptoms:
  • When flashing the Check Engine Light to read codes, code 12 will always display first, indicating the diagnostic system is active
  • The engine will not run with a "hard" code 12 set
Common Problems:
  • Chances are you will never need to diagnose a code 12. Rather, the problem would be a crank, no-start condition.
  • If code 12 does not flash, that would indicate a communication problem with the ECM.
  • Code 12 does not show when reading codes with a scan tool. If there is a communication problem, the scan tool will let you know.



OBD Code 46 - Pass-Key II System Error - Circuit out of Frequency Range The ECM receives a signal from the Pass-Key module. When the correct signal is received, the ECM will allow the engine to start and run. Please review the RepairPal article on the GM Pass-Key Anti-theft systems for more information.

Symptoms:
  • Engine may not start
Common Problems:
  • Faulty ignition lock cylinder



OBD Code 43 - Knock Sensor error The ECM receives a signal from the Knock Sensor based on the amount of engine ping detected. The ECM uses information from this sensor to help calculate fuel delivery and spark timing.

Symptoms:
  • Engine ping
  • Lack of power
Common Problems:
  • Faulty Knock sensor
  • Poor connection at Knock sensor


OBD Code 55 - End Test.


Hope ehit help (remember comment and rated this).

NO SPARK PUT A NEW COIL ON DID NOT FIX TOOK IT TO A GSRAGE SAID IT NEEDED A CRANK SENSOR CAM SENSOR WIRES PLUGS DIST CAP AND ROTER RAN ONE DAY NOW THEY SAID A HOLE DISTRIBUTER AND A TIMEING BELT.I REALLY...


If you are sure they said, a distributer cap a roter and a distributer, there is a problem! Because on a 1998
plymouth, there is no distributer or cap or roter.
Your cam sensor along with the crank sensor-temp sensor and a few other sensors, send a signal to the
powertrain control module, that sends a signal to the
coil pack(that you said was replaced) that fires the
spark plug. I would hold off from having any further
work done there, until you can check out what they
say they have already done. Ask if you can have the
old parts they replaced so far. You will want to have
an OBDII scan test done, to see what codes come up. It should have one of the first tests they did.
If I have read your post correctly, have them write an
estimate for what they will replace next. This info. is
based on the car being a 1998 plymouth and not a
1988 I would not wan't to acuse somone of anything
based on a typo. Hope this helps. Good luck.

1998 plymouth breeze won't start


I guess my problem was the new crank sensor has failed.
Replace crank sensor again , it has fixed the problem.
Not too sure if this was any help or not.
