Have you checked for spark and fuel while cranking?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Our timing light to intuitively check for the spark is damaged. We r getting another one right now.

You can use a spark tester or screw driver in the mean time to check for spark.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Cat started. Ran then shut off again. It has fuel and spark

Ok, excellent!

Would you be willing to speak on the phone?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Now it does not start or tun. It shut down on it s own. I did not turn it off . I have a new crank sensor that we may to install. I am beginning to believe that is the problem.

Ok. Let me know.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Does that sound like the problem or could there be something else. Shows no codes and problem is intermittent.

So does the engine have spark now when cranking?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
There is no way to tell. No spark plug wires

Ok, then I cannot say for sure if the crank sensor is at fault.

Is it possible? YES.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
We already changed the crank sensor. Where is the spark relay that sends spark to each individual plug coil

In the PDC

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
What is that

Power distribution center.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Where is that located

Under the hood that contains the fuses.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Ok. The fuses are all good

ok, good

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
What else might it be

Too early to tell.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Which is the spark relay (looking at relay area from left to right)?

It is labeled ASD

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It is a 30 amp fuses relay that can be pulled out and replaced?

YES sir that is correct.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
We ate trying to see if the auto parts store has one. We already have a new crank sensor to change. Changing one or both of these should fix things. What about the auto shut off relay?

You will need to check engine compression sir.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
The engine runs fine. It just quits after 10 to 15 mins

Ok, got it!

Then we need to check fuel pressure when this condition occurs.

Let me know!

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
The engine is running, but will stop inexcpectantly. We changed the auto sit off relay . The ADS is a 30A fuse, not a relay and it is good. The engine has stopped twice, but will restart (it would not before).

Was the cam and crank sensor replaced?

What about the fuel pump?

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Only the cam sensor. We anew crank sensor, but have not changed it yet.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Do the crank sensors intermittently not work?

Ok, that would be your next step.

Also, dont forget about the fuel pump.

YES, the crank sensor can fail intermittently.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
We have the crank sensor, so we will change it. That will take a while, lousy access.

Sounds good!
