Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi . I will try to assist you . Have you ever scanned it even though there is no MIL light on ?
how recently have you checked for DTC's ?
you say it does not start ? Do you mean it does not crank over or it cranks over but does not " fire up " ?
what sort of smell are you experiencing ?
okay then for the codes . :-)
are you ever needing to add oil or coolant ?
do you mean when it is HOT that it has a " slow " crank ?
Is it a " SLOW " or a " NO " crank when you turn the key " ?
when it is HOT ?
and it is , grunting and groaning ? Where is the smoke coming from , under the hood ?
what color ? White ?
it sounds like a cracked head or a head gasket . What you need to do is when the engine is hot ( Try to purposely get it really hot ) turn it off . If it will not start , right away ( as quickly as you can ) remove the spark plugs and see if the engine will turn over ( fast ) . reinstall the spark plugs and see if it will then start . You need to do this . prepare ahead of time to have the spark plug socket COP socket so you can do this fairly quickly .
you may actually see coolant or moisture/steam pumped out of one or more spark plug holes .
