    Well after $400 or so I fixed one problem just to turn around and have another. I replaced the crank shaft and timing belt. The car ran for about 1 week and then it would not turn over "again". This time I took it to the mechanic shop. A $1230 later my car is like new. I wound up having to replace the battery and radiator.



    Thank You For All Your Help

    Sincerely

2002 dodge ram 1500 4x4 with 5.9 with distributor has no spark


The crank sensor on this vehicle is a magneto type sensor which reads a toothed gear on the crankshaft. The gear has a blank spot on it that the sensor reads, which tells the ECM when to fire. If the sensor is faulty, which is fairly common for Mopar engines, you won't get any spark. You should definitely try replacing this before the ECM. Just be very careful when pulling the sensor out: if it breaks off, it's time to remove the oil pan to push what's left out of the block. Hope this helps

2002 Madza 626 has fire but seems like it's not getting gas


I had a similar sounding problem: my '02 626 would turn over but not start and I know my solution will sound strange but it worked. To start with I had a 4.5 year-old battery and I cranked on the starter until the battery started dying. I then left the car in my driveway overnight and the next afternoon, when I had time, I hooked it up to my battery charger (set on 'fast charge' ) and I pulled off one of the spark plug wires and tried to ground it then had my 17 year-old turn the starter over to see if we had any spark reaching the plugs. The car then started! While I was holding a spark plug wire in my hand! I replaced the battery that night and have not had a problem since (about 4 weeks ago). How old is your battery? Take it to a parts store that does battery diagnosis and have 'em check it out... It may just be your culprit.

Driving and car dies. Will not restart


It could be two choices either trouble with ignition or fuel. Check to see if you have fire at the spark plug. If you do then i would say its the fuel pump. If it was injector it would have to all of them at same time and that's not likely.

Are plugs and wires good? Did you check distributor? Firing order correct-timing set right? Maybe some of the new parts are faulty? Are grounds all secure and are fuses good?
