Engine Performance problem
1998 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

Hi, I just replace my engine 3.3 V6 and now it cant start. The starter is running and the noise is like starting for 3-4 seconds but wont keep running. I replace the camshaft and the crankshaft sensors with new, check the sparks and they spark normal, the injectors are working. The sound is making is like there is a miss firing order or something like that.

Do you
have the same problem?

Are you sure you have the plug wires on in the correct order? Also, have you checked fuel pump pressure?

Let me know.

The plug wires are the wright order and the pressure is good and the only things left are the timing chain loose or the computer.

Thanks

To check the computer, you need to have the proper test equipment. As far as the timing, place the crank on TDC and remove the distributor cap. The rotor should be pointing at the #1 spark plug wire.

Let me know.
