Chrysler LX: , my 2001 T & C would not start last night after…

Customer Question
Hi, my 2001 T &...
Hi, my 2001 T & C would not start last night after shutting it off. Engine just turned over and didn't sound it was even trying. This morning it did start but is running a little rough at idle. We are out of town for Dr appointments for my 6 year old son. There is between 1/2 and 1/4 tank of gas. I'm thinking maybe moisture in the fuel. Got gas yesterday at a station where we always get gas with no previous issues. We're 200 miles from home. ugg. Thinking some injector clearner/dry gas additive?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's very possible that you picked up some fuel with water in it. If you're in an area that's getting extreme amounts of rain like the midwest is that makes it more likely to be a water issue, leaking tanks at gas stations are usually found during periods of large amounts of rain.

You may have also lost spark due to a failing cam or crank sensor, ASD relay ow wiring issue, or it's possible that the fuel pump is failing.

The first thing I would recommend is checking for fault codes. If no codes are setting then I would recommend taking a fuel sample.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
