Question about 1994 Dodge Spirit

1 Answer

1994 Dodge Spirit

My car starts ok and runs fine for the first three to four starts. Then when I try to start it won't. I check the coil for spark and there was no spark from the coil to the distributor. I changed the coil and the problem persists. After I replaced the coil I took the car for a nine mile run. It ran fine. When I parked and then started after about two hours it would not start. I left it overnight and it started fine. It has also started running even after the ignition is turned off. Usually runs for about five seconds. I have had the ignition switch replaced. Any suggestions?

    1994 Spirit will not start sometimes. Had wires replaced due to lump in one wire. Chrysler mechanic's scope shows zero fuel pressure, so replaced starter relay. Same problem. Then replaced fuel pump. Same problem. Up to $1,000 now.

Check the Hall Effect pickup which is under the distributor rotor. It will cause the problems you are describing if it fails. It might be sticking, then when you play with the cap or rotor you jar it loose for a while. It tells the computer that the engine is turning, like a crank sensor. Cheap fix if that's what it is.

93 dodge spirit won't start


if the engine turns over then check for spark at the plugs. if this is good then check for fuel pressure with a gage. if the pressure is not right the car won`t start. you could have a plugged fuel filter.

My 1994 Jeep grand cherokee won't start. It tries to start but doesn't. Tried replacing cap and rotor and still will not start. When I checked the spark it was yellow. What does that mean?


Yellow means weak spark should be blue check the coil tower where the coil wire attaches on the coil for corrosion. Also check the spark plugs for wear.

Test at the spark plug if you are getting current there with a cheap spark plug tester, if not, it could be the spark box. ( it used to be an ignition coil on older cars ) double check the computer for codes which may lead to a cam sensor not giving the PCM information.

My car is not getting fire the coil is fine and the spark plugs are brand new battery is fine starter is trying to turn over but the engine just won't start


Possible cause: failed pulse pickup. This device is located inside the distributor and are not uncommon failures.
If you have a multimeter, you can measure at the thin leads coming out of the distributor on the Ohms scale. Disconnect and measure across them. They will typically have ~1,000 Ohms resistance but could be higher and still be OK. If it measures very low (<10Ohms) or very high (10,000 Ohms) the coil is defective and these are normally separately replaceable.
If you need to replace it; 'shop' it, the prices are all over the map on this thing.

i had the same problem, and it turned out the coil pack was moulding inside wich stopped the spark all together, i ended up changing my coil pack and putting on new wires because the ends connected to the coil were very corroded and that cures the not running part just fine
