TRIED JUMPING THE CAR, STILL NOTHING

1995 Dodge Neon • 117,000 miles

Checked all fuses an there good. Tried jumping the car, still nothing. Checked fuel pump, thats good. Car is getting gas. Battery, an starter are good. Only getting spark to 2 plugs. Checked coil pack with a new one still nothing. Checked fuel pump, that's good. Battery, an starter are good. Could it be the crank sensor, if so how do I check it?

No check engine light. Cant find where there card would be your talking about. We are replacing the cam sensor right now. Napa auto said car wont start if thats bad, but if its the crank sensor it will start but not for long.

You mentioned that it sounds like it isn't getting spark. Have you checked? And yes, it could be a crank sensor.

If it is getting spark, check compression. Valve issues are a common problem with these.
