If the hard steering only occurred after the engine stalled, you likely have an alternator problem. There is diagnostics that you could perform, but you are kind of limited without a scan tool. Chrysler Master Techs are not trained to just replace parts, they fix the problem by diagnosing it properly. This information is used by the Electronic Control Module to control ignition and fuel injection. So the good Fuel pressure will not really effect the engine falling on its face as its a computer timing issue caused by bad sensor information that's causing the bad running. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change. At the engine It may be sticking.
Some alternators respond to the high points in the ripple. Maybe it skipped a tooth. Correction: Federal mogul will notify owners and replace the parts free of charge. That stronger electromagnet creates a higher output voltage which again creates a stronger electromagnet. The changing gap causes the magnetic field near the sensor to change. Also, I need you to check for any other lights that may stay on while the vehicle is moving.
Never had any kind of these issues before. The car has been kept up perfectly. Will a tune up fix it? The P0325 is a knock sensor code. You can find voltmeters at Sears, Walmart, Radio Shack, or better yet, a Harbor Freight Tools store if you have one nearby. See the possible causes of P0340 on p. I had to go at it from the top of the car.
A way you can test it is if you have a fully charged battery and you start it up, then remove the positive cable, and it still runs, your alternator is fine, but vise versa it dies, then the alternator is likely bad. If it's really bad, it not impossible a bit of oil is seeping in there. Drive the vehicle and see if the problem goes away. Either the alternator's current will be recharging the battery, and that can be up to 20 amps, or the battery is going to be supplying the car's electrical systems, and that can easily be over 30 amps. I've already changed the cam and crank sensors, timing belt and starter. Only Chrysler alternators are easier to diagnose. Pay close attention to the red gauge.
Provide details and share your research! Timing belt marks are lined up. Ripple will be very high and the most output current you will get will be one third of the generator's design value. Regardless if your generator is working or not there is going to be a big spark when you remove a battery cable with the engine running. Set Condition: If vacuum drops below 1. Cleared codes and tried again and only rec'd P0340.
One other thing to keep in mind is batteries give off explosive hydrogen gas. Is your check engine light on? That is your tachometer to measure your rpm. But do deal with it right away - it affects many other components. May give that a try first. If a mechanic is caught pulling this stunt he will typically get one verbal warning.
May give that a try first. The third time the car actually started and was on so we ran it for a bit and would press on the gas pedal to reve it. Most times, the thermostat will remain in the housing as you pick it up… About 20mpg. The sensor system consists of a rotating part, typically a disc, as well as a static part, the actual sensor. It is safer to see if there's gas in the tank by using a lit match, but obviously I'm not recommending that either! For anyone researching this six-year-old post, absolutely do not even think about pulling off a battery cable while the engine is running. I don't even want to get involved with a car that has had a battery cable removed while the engine is running. The change in the magnetic field cause the voltage from the sensor to change.
Doing so can instantly destroy numerous computers. Or how to fix it without going to a mechanic? A real common problem with an inexpensive fix is worn brushes inside it. The first time nothing at all the second the door being ajar would ding and power returned. Consequence: Decreased lighting visibility may result in a vehicle crash. Can your scan tool watch both the cam and crank sensors with the engine running to make sure that they are in 'sync'? The way you tell if the charging system is working is to measure the battery voltage while the engine is running. When the engine is running, the high and low parts of the teeth cause the gap with the sensor to change.
Won't rev past 2200 rpm. P0339 Chrysler Description The Crankshaft position sensor also known as the crank position sensor is an electronic device used in an engine to record the rate at which the crankshaft is spinning. Hello, Please I need your help I am a poor college student that bought a pt 03 cruiser limted two weeks ago. Test the battery with a battery load tester. For the second offense he will be fired. If you have a manual you can strip down the top of the engine to see the timing gears on the end of the Cam shaft and see if you can see the cam sensor and if there is anything obviously wrong i. That's why the belt needs to make it spin.
