Customer Question
I have a question about...
I have a question about the 4.7 in my 04 Durango. I replaced the oil. engine ran normal before hand... little noisy as expected out of the 4.7. but after the oil change I attempted to to start it and it fired then died immediately. then it sputtered on the second try and on the 3rd try nothing happened at all. engine cranked but no start. I have fuel at the rail and ive used starting fluid to no avail. the only thing that showed any difference what so ever was a long time of having the battery disconnected. after that it spits one time but doesn't start. not with my foot on the throttle, not with starting fluid. nothing. I'm wondering if I accidentally tripped the security system to shut down the injectors or spark some how

not p0552, P0522 oil pressure sensor
Dodge Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 4 months ago

Dodge Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 4 months ago

that means?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I mean I know its not sparking and that its suppose to pulse but why isn't it? bad PCM?
Dodge Mechanic: Tim Mohr, ASE MASTER TECH replied 4 months ago

it could be a bad PCM, or a bad crankshaft sensor, but if it were a bad crankshaft sensor, it would set a P0340 code?

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.

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.
