Hi all. I posted some of my problem in the whatever thread yesterday, and got some info, but I will re-type everything I can think of now, and see if you guys can help me out.
Yesterday morning I was on my way to work, and after taking a right turn, the car stalled out, and I rolled to a stop. No lights on the dash of any kind, no wierd idling, or anything like that, perfectly normal, and then just shut off... It wouldn't start up again, just kept cranking, so I pushed it to the side, and called a tow truck. Now the car is at home, pushed into the garage (up the damn driveway).
When I turn the key, it just cranks until I let go of the key. Doesn't turn over, doesn't almost turn over, it's not cranking too fast or too slow, everything is normal except for the not starting part... The tachometer doesn't move anywhere, just sits at zero. I can hear the fuel pump, so that's not the problem.
I tried pulling the codes, and there are none active, or stored in the memory.
ManicMechanic said probably the ICM or the CPS. I took the ICM off today to get it tested, since it's easier to access than the sensors. Got it tested a couple hours ago, ran the test multiple times, and it checked out alright. So it's not the ICM... I found out there are two crankshaft position sensors, how do I know which one I should be looking at, and is there a way to test them out? I know where the one is by the pulley, but I have no clue where the other one is.
What else should I be looking at? Maybe the wiring to the ICM, or something else? Any ideas are more than welcome. Would something fuel related have anything to do with the Rpms sitting at zero at all times? Or is that a spark problem? Help me dudes, and dudettes!
That's the first time the Cutlass left me stranded in the two and a half years I've owned it. Feels kind of wierd, but I'm not that mad, I'd just like to get it fixed up as soon as I can, since I canceled the plates on the Maxima...
Thanks for any help you can provide, and if I left something out (I have a feeling I did) let me know...
