Chrysler Mechanic: Amedee, Chrysler Technician replied 3 months ago

When it does not start, does it crank over and not start?

If so, does it have spark while cranking?

Has anything been replaced for this condition up to this point?

It does crank. We dont know how to test for spark. Cam position sensor has been replaced by the previous owner. Just bought it last night
Chrysler Mechanic: Amedee, Chrysler Technician replied 3 months ago

Thank you for that information. You can use a spark tester or a screw driver to check for spark when it is cranking but not starting.

If it is hard to access the ignition components or you don't have a spark tester, you can spray some starting fluid into the intake when this no start condition occur to see if it will start and run for a brief moment. If so, you know it has spark and the root cause is just a fuel delivery concern.

However, with these codes you are getting, I suspect it is not going to be getting spark when this condition occurs

We qr3 standing next to the road. 750km from home. Ehat can we do?
Chrysler Mechanic: Amedee, Chrysler Technician replied 3 months ago

You will need to get some tools.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Ok. But what tools and what must we do
Chrysler Mechanic: Amedee, Chrysler Technician replied 3 months ago

You will need to get a can of starting fluid and a spark tester.

You will need to check for spark and see if the engine will run on starting fluid.

You need to gain access to the ignition components and insert a spark tester to check for spark while an assist cranks the engine over.

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.
