Customer Question

Have a 2000 Chreysler Cirrus that will not start. When the problem started it was being driven on the freeway and car started to spit and sputter. Once car was pulled over to the side of the road it would not start back up. Replace fuel pump, fuel filter, battery, spark plugs, coil, plug wires, crankshaft sensor, cam shaft sensor, and ecm. Car still will not start. It won't fire off ether but has spark. No codes are being produced either. Doesn't sound normal when cranking over but is still cranking. Any idea where I can check from here?

The timing belt seems to be good aswell as compression

There is also 50lbs fuel pressure at the rail
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

I see, thanks. Do the marks "seem to be" lined up?


Also what is the compression, in PSI?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
160-170 on all four cylinders and yes the timing marks are lined up. The belt has been replaced recent but before I obtained the vehicle.
Expert:  Jerry replied 1 year ago.

Fuel spark and compression it should start.

I will opt out and open it back up. Please DON’T REPLY to this post as that will lock the question back to me, also DON’T RATE THE ANSWER yet, someone should be along shortly, I’m sure, thanks and sorry I wasn’t able to help with it.

do you get any trouble codes?if so,can you give me the code#'s?

will it fire with a prime?[a little starting fluid or some fuel into the throttle body]?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No codes and it will not fire off starting fluid which I find odd since there is spark
