My 2005 dodge neon sxt will start but won't turn over. The engine sounds like it wants to start but it won't happen.
I've tried multiple things with my car.
My fuel pump is good so I'm getting
gas, i put new gas in my tank just to
see if it would work, I changed all my
spark plugs , I changed crank shaft
sensor and cam shaft sensor.
Alternator and battery are both new.
My mechanic and I have done all
these things together and even he is
stumped. He mentioned that the fire
from my plugs were weak and he's
gonna change something else but I
don't remember what he said. They
sparked but not very strong. Could
that even be a problem? I'm blowing
a lot of money and I feel lost. Any
suggestions? Anybody ever had this
problem? Help please.
Just because you hear the fuel pump running doesn't mean the injectors are working spraying fuel. You need to get a noid light and put in the injector electrical plug in and see if it flashes while cranking. If not you have no power or no ground. The ignition switch supplies the power and the ECM/Computer supplies the ground.
He checked them. If I'm not mistaken their were 4 of them. He checked the line with a pressure gauge and they squirted gas out when I turned the key.
Have you checked the engine relay fuse?
Check timing belt and compression on all cylinders. Bad coil can do this too.
I think he said he was changing the coil pack next. What does the coil pack do?
It sends spark to the plugs.
Could changing the coil pack be my answer? Or is that a slight possibility.
Yes it could be the problem.
so what happened I am having the same problem
