Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Are you looking for possible causes or would you like me to walk you through this diagnoses? Have you checked for codes in the computer? Is there an anti theft or security light on or flashing on the dash when trying to start the engine?
No to which question?
Ok, thank you for that information. Have you checked for spark and or fuel delivery?
I understand. Have you checked for spark and or fuel delivery?
Excellent! And what about compression?
What are the readings on each cylinder?
Can you check the compression for me and get back to me with the readings? Thank you
Yes Sir. I can help. I need you to run some tests so we can continue.
So the spark, fuel and compression are good. So then why does the engine not stay running?
I understand. Please listen.
It is not possible for spark, fuel and compression to check out good and the engine just simply stalls out. It is simply just not possible. How do I know this? Because I am the expert.
But you keep telling me they are all "good"
I am telling you sir, that is not the case.
If you are willing to speak on the phone, I can call you right now and explain
I can get the vehicle running. You must trust me
NO problem. Please check engine compression and report back. Thank you
Ok, you will need to purchase or rent one.
That would be the body control module sir
Check engine compression
So how do you plan on diagnosing this problem without any tools?
Does the engine remain running on starting fluid?
But there is no security light on the dash correct?
No sir. I only know this forum. You could have a BUS communication issue causing this problem
What codes are in the computer?
