1996 dodge grand caravan 3.3 will turn over but will not crank seems to be no fire to the plugs

It is hard to say with the info posted, it could be related to a number of issues. If you have verified that there is no spark to the spark plugs, it could be the CPS (crankshaft position sensor)

Code reads P0340 Camshaft position Sensor circuit

That makes the computor think the timing is off. Replace the sensor and see if that does it. You will then have to have the code cleared (erased) or the light will come back on/stay on.

2001 dodge caravan 3.3 flex fuel engine making a tapping or ticking noise. It sounds like it is between the flywheel and oil pan, well it just sounds the loudest right in that area

well hope the crank bearings arent thrashed, but it might be the swith from fuel to fuel, as that is hard on engine internals, try to stick to one or the other

1997 Dodge Caravan won't start - has a tick tick sound

It sounds like the crank shaft sensor is hitting when you spin it over. It is probably in too far. There is a piece of card board stuck to the end of most of them to set it correctly. If it is not the the magnet will pull it to the metal reluctor. Pull it out and see if the end is rubbing. Then take a piece of card board from the box the sensor came in, put a dab of grease on the end of the sensor eg: magnet and put it back in, when it spins over the card board will be rubbed of. That should give you enough clearence for the magnetic sensor to work and not rub eg: the ticking noise.

Dodge 1996 caravan/engine starts then abruptly shuts off

I would check the iac(idle air control valve) first it controls the idle, and then if it is still acting up you may have to change the crank/cam position sensor

1997 Dodge Caravan won't start - has a tick tick sound

Hi savvyuserbyo;

That tick, tick sound is probably the starter solenoid trying to activate the starter.

Here's a couple of things you can try. Take a hammer and tap the starter motor (not real hard, just medium) and then try to start it.

The 2nd thing you can do it to take a piece of wire, like lamp cord and(with someone helping) touch one end to the small terminal on the starter. (There is a large battery size wire connected to a large terminal on the starter, this is not the one you use) use the small terminal. Have your helper touch the other end to the positive terminal of the battery.

If the engine cranks. the solenoid is probably bad. If it doesnt crank the starter is bad.

The final thing to do is to remove the starter (after you disconnect the ground lead of the battery) and take it to an Auto Zone type store and have them check it out for you. BTW, starter and solenoid are sold as a unit. I just replace mine on my 94 F159 and is cost $100 exchange. If you need a replacement get a rebuilt rathert than a new. Just as good and cheaper.

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if Appropriate. Thanks
