Dodge Caravan SXT: 2009 Caravan SXT 4.0l will not start. Replaced

Customer Question
2009 Caravan SXT 4.0l will...
2009 Caravan SXT 4.0l will not start. Replaced both cam and crank sensors full tune up even dealer cannot diagnose. No codes. It did start once but ran really rough and smoking.
Odd thing is when on a scan tool the RPM's when cranking got up and then drop to 0 and then up and drop to 0. Really stumped.
Even gone as far as rewiring the 2 sensors to the Computer to rule out bad wiring.

What Customers are Saying:

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.

This usually works, however I have had to drive home without lights while flashers are on. … read more
