I have a 2001 dodge Dakota 3.9 quad cab 4x4 5 speed manual…

I have a 2001...

I have a 2001 dodge Dakota 3.9 quad cab 4x4 5 speed manual and I ended up changing the crank sensor and it started once again drove it to the store and back no problems went the next morning to start it and nothing after many minutes it finally started. Got to work and wouldn't start after work thought maybe I got a dud of a sensor took it back to autozone got a new one started up drove it that night no problems made it home went to start it again same thing just kept cranking and cranking bought another one now won't start at all any idea what the problem could be?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle stall at low speeds? Does it sputter?

Nothing at all when running runs perfect just can't get it to start

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Dakota yourself? What have you tried so far?

All new ignition system new distributor new coil and new cam sensor and as well as 3 crank sensors this week

Fuel pump kicks in just no spark
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Already changed the entire ignition system and it has always led to the crank sensor like I said I've changed it twice this is the third and now won't start at all

very possible ...need to verify crank signal with a scan tool...but with that said i have bad luck with aftermarket crank sensors

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.
