Chrysler Repair: 1994 Chrysler T&C no start, crank pulley, pulley bolt
crank pulley, pulley bolt, camshaft sensor: Hi Larry, Yes, if the cam sensor signals were inadequate/missing, then I believe that neither the injectors nor the spark coils would fire appropriately and at the correct times.

plymouth voyager, powertrain control, 1994 plymouth voyager: Hi Carl, It sounds to me like your belt drive for the alternator is not tight enough and so the pulley and belt are slipping between one another.

Chrysler Repair: 1995 Stratus, camshaft position sensor, o2 sensors
camshaft position sensor, o2 sensors, digital voltmeter: Hi Dan, No, the decision as to whether to fire 1 and 4 vs. 2 and 3 is determined by the camshaft position sensor on the rear of the engine at the camshaft. I conjecture that it may be failing as it heats up. You can check out the difference in the voltage...

Chrysler Repair: 1996 Dodge Stratus:No Start, crankshaft position sensor, dodge stratus
crankshaft position sensor, dodge stratus, liklihood: Hi Peg, The key code to the problem is 11 in most liklihood.

obd ii code reader, 4 digit numbers, plymouth voyager: Hi Randi, These electronically controlled transmissions have so many different parts that it is not possible to diagnose what might be the solution based upon simply what it is doing.

Chrysler Repair: 1998 Sebring JXI low idle, screwdriver blade, light flickers
screwdriver blade, light flickers, penetrating lubricant: Hi Dino, The idle speed is controlled automatically by the engine controller and it should be arount 750-800.
