I HAVE A 99 DODGE STRATUS, IT HAS 185000 MILES ITS A 2.4 ENGINE. I HAVE HAD THE TIMING BELT, CONTROL MODULE, WIRING HARNESS REPLACED, THE CAR RAN FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS AND NOW IT JUST TURNS OVER, WONT START. FIRST IT KEPT BLOWING ONE OF THE FUSES SO WE THOUGHT IT HAD A SHORT. WELL IT DOESNT BLOW THE FUSE ANYMORE DONT KNOW WHY. NOW I WAS TOLD IT COULD BE THE FUEL PUMP, CAN YOU CHECK IT YOURSELF OR MUST YOU BRING IT IN? AND DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGUESTIONS ON WHAT IT MIGHT BE? THANK YOU !
1st we need to check for correct fuel pressure. You can have fuel all the way up to the injectors or carb but if its not the right pressure will cause the engine not to start. This has to be iron out before we get to the ignition system.
Fuel: F/pump relay,fuel pump, PCM/and could be the crazy ASD relay-automatic shutdown relay. this one at times powers both ignition/fuel in chrysler/dodge/plymouth. Depends on your model.
I'll be taking a break I'll see you later
Once the fuel pressure meets its specifications then we can move on to the ignition system.

WOULD THE FUEL PUMP CAUSE IT TO HAVE NO SPARK?

Nope its two different circuit-try this disconnect a sparkplug wire and ground it while cranking do you have spark? If No spark-check the crankshaft/cam sensors-then comeback
Do you hear the pump when you turn key to On. I need to know this and the spark.
