Customer Question
My 2005 is in...

My 2005 is in jamaica. we put an engine in . it had trouble starting, to start it we had to prime it, then when it started it woukd drive but lack power, so i said it might be something to do with the timing , anyway we looked at the timing. by this time we burnt out the starter. so had to pull start. we pull start the van it start but keeps cutting out. so we think it might be eletrical?

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

We look at the crank sensor that it we done no more so far
