Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
please explain...are you saying when the engine gets hot...it will just die?
tell me all you can
after putting gas in the car - i continue to drive to the grocery strore etc.. and while driving the car just dies on me. i then have to put the car in park and turn the key to continue driving.. as i continue driving when i make a left turn the car will die again.. as time goes by the problem seems to become less of a problem.. but as soon as put gas in the car the problem stars all over again
does the engine light stay on?
all of the lights go off and if i am driving at night myheadlights go off and my dashboard and everything goes out it appears as if as if someone disconnected the battery cables
do you get any trouble codes now?
my check engine light went off when i had the cashaft position sensor replaced the mchanic used his meter and he checked the battery and cables and could not find a problem he also test drove the car with me as a passenger he could not find a problem also the vehicle did not stop at that time yesterday after puting gas in the car my problems started again
sense you dont get any codes but you did get a code for the cam sensor before
the first thing you need to do here..
yes i did
is to check the battery cables at all 4 poits
the battery+ and -
\the engine -
and at the starter+
you also need to load test the charging system
if you dont have a load tester,,auto zone and most parts stores will do a load test for free
testing with a multi meter doesnt put a load on the system
your alternator may be shorting out
i think this sense you loose all lights when the problem happens
the mech check the voltage and everything the cables and everything i also purchased a brand new battery and he installed the new battery and took his time and he checked all of he connections he does not work in a hurry.. the problem onlys begins to happen after i leave the gas station could the nozzle be shorting something out?
i wouldnt the the fuel would cause the problem as you have described
another thing that could cause the engine to die without giving a code
is the crank sensor
the cam and crank sensors work together
and,,,may be bad,,and could have give the cam sensor code
now we are getting somewhere will the load test idicate the conditio of the crank sensor?
but,,it will put a strain on the charging sytem to make sure the alternator and cables are good
there is no good test for a crank sensor when the problem is intermediate
is there a way to test the crank sensor or do they go hand in hand like replacing the water pumup when replacing the timing belt?
the most logical thingto do is to get the "load test" from the auto parts place and would it make sense to go ahed and replace the crank sensor?
do the load test first
you may have a bad alternator
but yes,,if all gos well with the load test
replace the crank sensor

if the alternator is bad then it should be replaced and then i should continue driving the car and see if i get any more failures?
