car will not start with sensor plugged in what can I do I replaced the cam sensor, why don,t u answer me I,m stuck with a junk and it,s not funny
engine cranks but will not start,then some time it starts right up?
Same on going issue up in Canada with the intrepid ,, intermittent hard starts, intermittent stalling when stopped to long at light or stop sign,, cruise would not work intermittently,,sluggish on excelleration,, sputter also, changed crank sensor and cam shaft sensor with after market parts according to readings on check engine light, resolved issues temporarily. All signs returned , check engine read camshaft sensor again,, changed cam shaft sensor once again with aftermarket,, 8 months later same symptoms, progressively got worse would take up to 6 cranks of the key to start and it would run poorly!!! Read check engine light which had also become intermittent! Just said random misfire!
Took a chance on all I have read on internet and purchased dealer camshaft sensor ,, installed and so far ever ting is running correctly , no engine light, cruise is working all is good,, I'll keep you up to date!
car shot off when i drive
GOING ON EXPRESSWAY ENGINE JUST DIED, HAD TO HAVE SENSOR REPLACED.
Breaks down every day , I get about a 10 min window in the morning to get to work or I'm stuck sometimes it starts back up sometimes it dont
camshaf sensor code but i replace it
The car doesnt always want to start, check engine light on and had it checked to see what code it showed and it said cam shaft position sensor so i bought one and hopefully that fixes the problem.
car will not start sometime on one turn,and it vibrates slightly
Car will shut off while driving
in the process of getting fixed. was just diagnosed the other day
It's skips when starting it up, or not start at all!
car choked and stalled, then engine light went on with this error code. 140 to fix. then the next day the radiator went. then the thermostat was broken too. $140, $340, $180....bought the car for $1200. ugh.
Wont start . took cranksencer out and theres damige on the end. Scrapes on the maginet
I change the spark plugs in my 2001 Dodge intrepid es and now got bare wires showing on the clips by body ground and couple more places like cam shaft position senser
Cam sensor got too close and end shorted. Replaced with aftermarket
Car began stuttering and then dies, at some points does not want to start on first attempt.
Electrical works fine seems the engine will simply shut off.
