CAR WONT START

1999 Dodge Intrepid

Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Dodge Intrepid 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 144000 miles

1999 Dodge Intrepid 3.2 car stopped while driving. Timing belt wasnt broke but I replaced timing belt and water pump. Codes came up P1391 cam sensor or crank sensor. I replaced both. Car still wont start, and there are no codes now. Fuel pump works, and the car cranks wont turn over. What should I do?

Do below

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

If both fuel and spark is present-check the valve and ignition timing, this will lead you to problems
with compression and valves opening and closing at the wrong time/broken or jumped timing
belt/chain.
