Use a bottle of yellow HEET dry gas to remove any moisture problem in the fuel.

Clean / replace air filter.

Top off ATF to MAX level.

Use starting fluid to aid starting.

01 dodGe stratus. Starts then dies. When it sits overnight I canfire Otho like there wasn't ever a problem but the when I turn it off or even drive for a bit it dies ignores I turn the key off and


Probably loses either gas or spark. So check fuel pressure when it won't start, and check for spark on a plug wire. If fuel pressure is low, probably a bad pump. If no spark, diagnose the ignition system: coils, ignition coil control module (ICM), crank position sensor, etc.

An easy way to see if you lost gas, is to spray carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air intake while cranking engine. If it rumbles and tries to start, you know it is a fueling problem.

1997 dodge stratus dies when coming to a stop no warning just dies. Car will restart after cranking for a bit. then may stop again. Noticed that the alternator light comes on randomly and interior lights...



  • These cars loose memory for the idle when they loose voltage. So if the voltage suddenly drops it can just die like you say. The battery can read good voltage and be bad. The alternator could be intermittently working as well. Charging part time and other time not. If the alternator light flickered then it threw a code in your computer even if the light is off now. So you have a couple of things you can try but getting your car scanned will be what you may need to end up doing.
  • First start the car and get a multi meter and set it to DC Volts.
  • Now take the pos to pos and neg to neg on the battery terminals. If that multimeter reads.14 or more volts the alternator is good and If not it is bad.
  • The battery can have a volt test done and perform poorly under a load test.
  • Often times a part store will load test your batter as well as pull the codes from your car for free.
  • I suspect the alternator to be honest but going to the parts store or a trusted mechanic is going to give you the for sure reason for your car acting up.
