You likely need a new fuel sending unit (it's in the trunk, and is what drives the gauge).

1998 dodge stratus stalls while driving if gas tank is half empty


You need to check fuel pressure carefully. This happens when tank is so full of dirt that the pump screen gets clogged. After sitting down several minutes, some of the dirt settles and the car can be restarted, but happens again. Refrain from starting to change every sensor without knowing what is the real cause, because you could be thowing money and not fixing it. Aldo check pressure regulator is functioning correctly.

My 2003 dodge stratus idles rough like it might die out then when you start pressing the gas to accelerate it has a tough time accelerating right away but then when it starts goin it gets smoother also...


check or replace fuel filter for clogging up. if it does clog up, then you will not get enough fuel to engine to run it properly. it will stall at stops, and be very sluggish on takeoff. check fuel pressure if need be. could also be a bad catylist convertor. so check above first. Rent a fuel pressure guage from advance or oreilley's and check fuel pressure if needed. they will tell you the proper fuel pressure for your car.

2004 Dodge stratus randomly stops working, acts like lack of fuel. If it sits for a day it will start again and be fine for undertermined amount of time.


Could be many things, But id first check and change fuel filter. It may be fuel pump but hopefully not. If you get a check engine light when it acts up, Id hook it to a computer and get codes..

My check engine light comes on after it has rained and goes off once it's dry. The computer gave me a code of U110C. What could this be?


code should be for fuel level lost message - does the gas guage or mileage to empty change when this happens
