Thanks - went to advanced auto, code p301 came up with all this:
1. Ignition system fault-spark plugs, coil, ignition wires
2. Vaacuum Leak
3. Injector Fault
4. High or Low fuel pressure
Which and how many vacuum lines are there?
I believe 301 is a #1 cyl misfire only and I don't think it's the fuel pump. It may be an injector, plug or wire but if you don't have a p300 (multi cyl misfire) I don't think that's you main issue with the engine not running.
That's a great suggestion, is there a way to test one, or get to them?
I replaced the small vacuum hose between the PCV valve and connector- and reset the battery - no code for two days, it hasn't died yet, BUT the check engine light came on today! Bummer!
Not that I know of, it's always best to replace them both anyway, Intrepids are known for bad sensors. Once I changed mine they care has been running good. However, I'm having a new problem, sometime the car starts sometime I hear a clicking noise. It's not the starter cause that's new...Oh well.....
Kshep90407- I TOTALLY agree abour the sensors, once, while I had this car in Italy, no ****, the transmission was jerky and not shifting-it was BAD. I thought I was out 3k for a new transmission and being in europe-not an easy task dealing with Europeans (no offense) - it ended up being two sensors, less than 40.00, and I was back in business crusing the Itialian Piazza's and cobblestone roads!
Now it runs, hasn't died after replacing the vaccum hose to the PVC; Check Engine Light is on - disconnecting battery - I've tried this several times, it keeps coming back. Although its just over 97K miles, what else could cause the check engine light? She runs ok, just always had the light- any ideas?
With the hood open, look at the front of the cylinder head on the driver side. There is a small black sensor being held in with one bolt. The wire colors going to it are: 1-Orange 2-Black/Light Blue 3- Tan and Yellow..
and the crank sensor is on the back passenger side of the motor right on the front of the transmission
