Just drove to the store. The nine ran for about 15 min... smooth... no problems. Went in for 15 min and ow it won't start!!! It cranks strong but won't start. I checked the codes, 1590 and 0440. I'm trapped! It's a '99 dII with 146,000 miles. Any ideas?
Ok... update. I sat there for 30 minutes waiting for a ride. I checked every fuse that had a fuel or engine symbol, and they were all good. After the 30 min I tried restarting. I would "run" for 5 or 6 seconds, very rough and slowly die out. I replaced the plugs and wires few days ago due to very rough running and misfires. It seemed great after that, ran smooth and strong. Then the joint on the front driveshaft went out so I had to remove it and locked the transfer case to drive without it. Again, everything was fine... running smooth, no issues. Then tonight, no indication of any problem, drove to the store and when I came out it just wouldn't start. I replaced the crankshaft position sensor maybe 3 years ago, but it almost seems like that again. So my car is sitting abandoned at the store with new plugs and wires and the front drive shaft in the passenger seat. Any thoughts?
You might get lucky and have it start after cooling right off. If it does, get her straight home . If not it may need to assume the "English position (back of a tow truck)... I'm putting my money on the crank sensor from all you have described
Good luck, let us know how you make out
