Hi, there may be many reasons why the cars starts up then fail after a short time.

Often the engine is turning down when is cold because there is nit enough air in the fuel mixture. About this problem check, air intake and air filter, and electronic injection control module.

If fuel is not getting regularly pumped with enough pressure, the car will also shut down. Check the fuel filter if present, check if the fuel pump is running, and that there is enough pressure.

If car is misfiring on one or more cylinders, the engine can also turn off after a while. Check if one of the spark plugs is dirtier than the others. Replace spark plugs. Try to understand if engine is firing on all cylinders. Check distributor, or electronic distribution module.

In some case, even if not frequently, a dirty injector can cause the engine to turn off.

If you still cannot fix the problem go to a good car garage and have car computer module (ECU/ECM) scanned, this will return error code that will help to identify the problem.

If you had a key made and didn't order it from a dealer that will cause it to shut off. Security feature, the key has a chip in it.

Why would a 2000 Stratus rough idle then die?


if now it won`t start it could be a spark(ignition)problem, check for spark at the plug. you should check for a code in the pcm this may help, not all codes set the check engine light. could also be a bad fuel pressure problem.

2000 Dodge stratus - runs ok but at times will "chug" or misfire driving down highway - think its an electrical issue as it will almost "act up" when using cruise, turn signals, air conditioning, etc.


check the vacuum lines for leaks first,since the cruise uses vacuum to pull on the gas pedal, and ac controls use vacuum to work the baffle doors in the ductwork..then start looking for loose connections on these 3 itemsrepost findings

We have a dodge stratus 2006 4 cylinder, timing chain has been replace, it started and now it turns and won't start, help


The timnig could be out of time. The system could have skipped . When replacing the timing chain you should turn the engine over by hand with out starting two or three times to make sure the marks stay lined up. The timing chain tensioner could be weak.

Good Luck
