I have a 98 dodge stratus 5 speed it will start for about 10 to 15 mins and then shut off what could be the problem


When it shuts off you will need to figure out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

My 98 dodge stratus won't startbut it will turn


You need to check if its got air, fuel, and spark. spray some throttle body cleaner in the throttle body and quickly try to start it. if it fires up then your not getting fuel so you may need a fuel pump and filter. If it does nothing check for spark, if you have no spark then you need to check the coils and crank position sensor.

1998 Dodge stratus ran out of gas - filled tank but car won't start now


I had the same problem with my 98 Stratus.....i ran out of gas and wouldn't start afterwards....checked the pump because i thought maybe it overheated due to running without fuel in it to cool it.......but that wasn't it.....It turned out that the crud in the bottom of the tank went and plugged the fuel filter up.....changed the filter and voila......it's good as new.....hope this helps you out.... =-)

On a 1998 dodge stratus 2.4 ltr engine misfire


check compression,with engine running remove h/t leads 1 at a time to diagnose weak cylinder,check that cylinder has the same amount of spark ( jumps the same gap as others )try changing the plug from crook cylinder to a good one and note if miss follows that spark plug or stays with same cylinder,can do same with injectors but only perform one procedure at a time so you can determine which one works.

Won't go in gear when it's cold.


A good place to start is fluid & filter change if not done recently, and make sure they use Mopar ATF4. Insist on it.
