Electrical problem
1999 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 93000 miles

Car has been having rough starts lately. It has leaking head gasket, I fixed it with the quick fix block sealant. This repair lasted for a month, then drove car in summer heat, and has been occasionally been boiling over again. Driven yesterday, this morning it only cranks when I try to start it. Is there water in the cylinders? Sounds like it's not getting fuel when I crank it

To answer your question. You should probably replace that head gasket, because coolant can get into the cylinders, also is the engine cranking over slow or at normal speed? Make sure that your getting spark when it is cranking, and that you have a voltage around 12.6 volts at the battery.

Reply soon, and I hope that this helps a little bit.
