I have a chrysler dynasty. 3.3L V6. The problem is, I drove it one day and the first trip out in town the car was working. The 2nd trip around town I was sitting in drive waiting for roughly 5-10 minutes. My car started to sputter a bit like it was going to die out and shake a bit. Then the check engine light came on, oil pressure gauge dropped completely and the car died. I got it started again for a few seconds then it just stalled out again. A few days later I go back with a new fuel filter, and it sounds like it wants to crank over but it doesn't. So I replaced the fuel filter, checked fluids, and I still cant get it started. Please I really need help we are expecting our baby anyday and am 40 minutes away from hospital on foot.

Ok there is one thing I forgot to mention. It does crank over but not to the point of starting. When I turn the key I hear the fuel pump engage. And on my voltmeter there are 4 lines mine is at the 2nd one up

<--- I am sitting here
<----#2
(0)

when I turn the key it drops down to #2. Could it just be the battery? And the remaining 3 spark plugs and wires that werent changed yet?

Yeah I finally got to check it and there is no spark at all. So what would I check next?

I also forgot to mention that there is no distributer cap its just a diecast metal rectangle block that my spark plug wires connect to.

Ok so I dont have the equpiment to check that. So is it held on by just the one 1/2'' screw? And can I just replace the cam sensor with another one?
