    Default 2002 Dodge Neon won't start

    Hi! We bought this car used just a couple of months ago and it was having problems starting, but not every time. Now the engine turns over, but it won't start. Battery, alternator, and coil pack tested fine. We replaced the plugs, wires, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, and finally the crankshaft sensor. It still won't start. Checked fuel pressure-that's fine and it's getting spark. No engine codes. We were reading maybe the camshaft sensor could be bad and it would not throw a code? What do you think? Any information you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    motoguzzi7 - If you have proper fuel pressure and you're getting fuel then the next step would be to look for spark and compression. If the compression is good and you have no damaged wiring and the crankshaft sensor is set properly, then the camshaft sensor is a strong candidate.
