Question about 1997 Dodge Stratus
1997 dodge stratus, 2.4 liter, automatic. idles like a fine swiss timepiece. hesitates on acceleration, stutters when upshifting, problem gets twice as bad when a/c is on, has new plugs, new fuel line from the fire wall to fuel injection system, new pcv valve, all vacuum lines new. car has 140,000 miles on it.
any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
Check the voltage on battery with a volt meter with car running. Voltage should be between 14-15 volts. If not then the pcm on car is causing the problem. The pcm (power control module is regulating the voltage from the alternator and you will need to carry it to a shop to see if the pcm can be reset or replaced. If the voltage is correct then the battery is at fault and you will need to replace the battery. Any battery that is a least 4 years old should be replaced and would not hold a charge. Hope this will help you.
