04 Dodge Stratus. Hesitates while driving down road. Dies at idle sometimes and other times will rev itself as if I am pushing gas. Getting p0158 and p0108. Could this be a vacuum leak?


DTC P0108 probable causes:
  1. Sensor or solenoid faulty
  2. Connector terminal contact is damaged or corroded
  3. Wire harness - Check harness for correct voltage, open, short to ground or short to voltage
  4. Update control unit software - Check for the latest control unit update
  5. Powertrain or Engine Control Module faulty

have you checked the leads or dispac. any cracks in leads or rubbers change. dispack you need to take this out and check for splits in the case. and water damage if any replace. also check the fuel line filter. and pressure valve on fuel line.

1998 Dodge Stratus 2.4l bogs down suddenly while at cruising speed


You need to get the engine trouble codes by performing the "keydance" or using a code reader, then start checking fuel pressure at pump and regulator. Best luck. Amclaussen.

My 96 V6 dodge stratus idles rough or sometimes does not idle at all. when moving the engine hesitates but will stay on as long as I'm stepping on the throttle


If EFI style fuel system, Faulty fuel pump common. Does not perform at idle because of reduced voltage. above idle car behaves normally.
