This car will start everytime idle for a while and stall out. Can rev up but miss's and check engine light will come on and die when back to idle. The hotter the engine the quicker it dies. Always flass'es code 11 I have tried a different crank sensor even is there a way to test a crank sensor? If I unplug the sensor the car will not fire up. So it must be getting some type or reading at the computor or can it still be a broken wire or did I just get un lucky and get 2 other bad crank sensors? Could the pick up that the sensor reads fall off? I am lost as to why the only code I get is 11 any help would be a great thing. The car smells like its fuel so it must be fireing at wrong time with a bad crank reading im guessing on this car. Again any help would be great thanks

You need to describe this vehicle properly-Chrysler don't have the Intrepid, Dodge has it-the code you're picking up there's no such thing on vehicles above 96-Up, its suppose to be a P code/s

When you read the engine light it gives code 11 no crank reading at pcm. Would a loose battery conection cause that at all? I changed the cranks senser. It rivs up and miss's at about 2000 and is I idle it will idle fine for a bit then stalls out. Its a 3.5l if there was a broken wire would it not start at all like if you discontect the crank sensor? What should I be chasing on this any idea's would be helpfull.

Is this a 1997 or 1987 vehicle? The code you have is coming from an OBD1 on a 87-89

Try testing the crankshaft position sensor

One to clear it up at least here in canada it is not dodge that makes the intrepid it is chrysler. Next it is a 97 and that is the code from the check engine light when made to flash codes. I am unsure as to why other board I posted on has everyone understanding and here very simple and almost insulting answers. You think I do not know what car I am working on or what code I am getting. Sorry I am not a 15 year old and I am not a back yard repair guy we are having a actually problem sorting this car out as it isnt timing it isnt a crank sensor. Volatage is good. If I step on gas it is like a miss fire engine cuts of basicly and if taken down to idle will just die after a few seconds and will fire right up easy. When we tried to limp it over for the guy the more it ran the faster it just died. Not fully sure what to check and was hopong for answers helping as to what to check not asking what car I have as even if it was dodge that made the intrpid think everyone has enough ability to understand what is was meant yet it is chrysler that makes the intrepid. Anyone have any idea or tips. I dont car if you have wild ideas it maybe right just dont need to be asked what car like I have no idea or anything. Yet thanks for the bit of wisdom you seem to provide me.

In my country Dodge makes the interpid not Chrysler. I asked this question bcuz I'm not coming up with that-code. There's a differences to me-When I verify your vehicle in Chrysler In my Mit1 and Alldata its not matching-you get my point. This is what happens if we don't get the correct information from the user. I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, this is how I am when I pursue the question I drill it out so I can get a better picture as to what's going on and provide them the right direction to fix their problems. It doesn't matter what vehicle they all have the same principles to me.
