1997 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 157K miles
You guys helped me with my 76 Chevy Truck. Now I'm looking for insight on my 97 Stratus! Here ya go. And I know I have read similar problems. Just don't remember what the fix was.
First, engine was hesitating. Replaced Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor. BINGO! Ran like a champ! 6 months later. Similar problem. Checked the sensor and cleaned it. Same problem. Replaced it. Still hesitated. Got the check engine light and read the codes. Cam and crank sensors. Replaced those. NOW! Here is the problem, I never got to drive the car after replacing these two sensors. It would crank but not run. No codes to be read. Did a spark check and no spark coming from the coil pack. It was replaced with a new one in Feb/Mar this year. Same for the plugs and wires. I checked some wires. Relays (replaced a relay and no fix), found a broken wire at the alternator connector. Fixed it. Still nothing. Car has not run now in 2 months. Need help, single Dad and active duty military. Truck's gas consumption is KILLING me! Any thoughts? I donated last time. And if I get a fix from you guys, I'll donate again under a generic question. So hook up an Air Force aircraft mechanic! Just remembered a couple of other things.I had the operation of a few of the gauges not work while driving, the odometer was not working. I also bought and replaced the ASD relay, checked the fuses, and did the spark check by pulg a plug wire, grounding it and not spark. Stater works, laternator is good, had it tested before car crapped out, and tried reading codes. None to be read. I haven't looked at the timing belt.
have the same problem?
