SOURCE: my 02 stratus has a fuel rail leak only when first

Their are O-rings on each end of the injectors, (if that is where it's leaking?) when they are cold they shrink up, if their is a small crack in the O-ring it will leak, as they warm up the rubber will expand, sealing it off.
I had this problem with an intrepid and had the rings replaced, I still had one injector that was leaking and had to replace that too, but the rings are relatively inexpensive, even paying a garage to do it.
Hope this helps you seal it up.

SOURCE: 2000 dodge stratus 2.4L has no fuel pressure at

check fuses and the fuel pump relay if good have someone turn key in the on position with key off while you listen for the fuel pump to kick on if you dont hear anything pound on the tank with hand while the person turns it over. you might jar it to come on. if not check power to the fuel pump. Also make sure you have gas in it if questionable on how much put 1 gallon in just to be on the safe side. No I am not poking fun I see the simplest things kick our(technicians) behinds

Ran out of gas and now got sand in fuel rail

The two are not likely to be related. The only way sand can get to the fuel rail is if the filter has collapsed or was removed. The sand likely got there during a previous repair...

03 Dodge Stratus ran out of gas and now wont start

There is no reset.
The fuse and pump relay should be in the fuse box near the battery.
You may have to disconnect the filter or the rail to let the air out of the system. And you may have plugged up the screen in the tank.

My 200 dodge stratus was running fine i shut it of and when i tryed to restart it it acts like it is out of gas

Dodge fuel pumps are notorious for going out without any warning. I would suggest that you check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail and if no fuel..check the fuel relay and then the fuel pump replacement. I would process of eliminate in that order.

Car trys but wont start

Might be bad gas or it sounds like your fuel pump is out. It doesn't cost very much but I think it is located in the tank itself. Drain the tank and discard the old gas. take down the tank and replace the pump. This should fix your problem.

I need to change fuel filtyer on my 99 dodge stratus,where do I locate this and instructions on ho to change it please.

it should be underneath the car jusy in front of the gas tank. when you climb underneath you should be able to follow the lines from the fuel tank right to it. it should be mounted right up against the frame rail. all you have to do is unhook your battery so you dont take a gas shower when you unhook it. then pinch the tabs together and pull the line off of the filter. they use quick connects on these and it makes them easy to change. then pull it out of the holder, slide the new one in, hook up your lines and hook the battery back up. you're all done.
