Question about 1997 Dodge Avenger

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start

I came home from work back in December and parked my 1997 Dodge Avenger. It was running fine all the way home. We had a very cold night. When I went to start it the next morning, the engine would turnover; but it wouldn't start.

I replaced the battery; the starter; spark plugs; and fuel pump. It still won't start. The plugs have a lot of fire, and It's getting fuel. It will turnover and act like it wants to start.

It's a four cylinder. Any suggestions?

Thanks!!

Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.

Check the vacuum line on the fuel pressure regulator for any sign of gas being sucked into the line. A failed regulator will let extra gas get into the engine. If it's okay, have the fuel pressure checked. That's sure a lot of gas, way too much for the engine. Good luck.

I have a 1997 dodge avenger and it sprays my anitfreez from my engine i can fill it up with antifreez and drive about a month and then it sprays it out in one day then the car runs hot


you need to probably change the thermostat as it can stick closed intermittently causing this or you might want to have a block check done on the cooling system to check for a possible head gasket starting to go bad.also you may want to check to see if the engine cooling fan is working when this is happening.

1997 dodge avenger won't go into reverse. All other gears seem to work fine. Just went to leave one morning and car wouldn't go into reverse.


First thing you need to do is check the fluid level, to see if it is low-the trans has to be warm, and the car has to be running, on level ground-Use ATF+4 for Chrysler.

1997 dodge avenger won;t start. engine has no spark. checked the spark plugs, they look good.


Does your engine turn over, just not fire? if it sounds like it wants too start but its not firing, try your distributor. this happened to my car last week actually, went out and bought a new dist. and it is fine now. its a big expense, so try to find one at a junk yard and they say you can take it back if its not that. thats your best bet. hope it helps.

1997 dodge avenger engine problems V6 2.5


Check your EGR valve. It may be stuck open. I had a similar problem 2 years ago on my 97 avenger w/ 2.5L V6. Engine idled rough and would die when I stopped at a stop sign unless I feathered the gas pedal as I coasted to a stop. Replaced EGR valve, problem solved.
