Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 T&C with a complete tune up and a brand new crankshaft and
when i try to turn it on it only cranks it doesn't start. I'm trying to figure out
along with a mechanic what could be the problem but it's been two days and
we can't seem to find what else could be wrong any advice or suggestions

Is there spark? And is there the proper fuel pressure? One more thing...find a new mechanic.

Yeah the thing is i live in a very small town and he's the only mechanic nearby that i can afford, it is frustrating i'm thinking if tomorrow we don't fix it i will have to go to the city and find another mechanic and spend more money i don't have but yes it does spark but it won't start and proper fuel pressure we also checked and that is also good.


Have your mechanic there check that the injectors are getting voltage to operate. If there is a security system on there, it may have something to do with this, when activated security shuts down the injectors. Sounds like your mechanic is doing his best, give him a chance long as he is not overcharging you on time spent on the problem. Another thing is this is a Chrysler product, so it can be difficult, I don't like Chrysler.
