Question about 1999 Dodge Avenger

1 Answer

Bad o2 sensor at back

I have a 1999 dodge avenger V6. The O2 sensor at the back is bad. I have not had it replaced yet. Today I noticed my car when I started to stop wanted to cut off. The tachometer hand went to to zero then back up. When I took off from the light it kind of stuttered along. I also need front brakes. I have not had a tune up either. Also when I put my car into drive when the car is cold the tachometer hand goes to zero and then back up . Could you please tell me what is wrong with my car? The service engine light is on also. The guy at the shop said it was because of the O2 sensor.

Have a 1999 Dodge Avenger V6. Keeps blowing Engine Fuse under hood


Fusible link 3 feeds the PCM. the ASD relay, and fuel pump relay. Assuming it has A/T, that fusible link also feeds the starter relay, the EATX-ECM, and the EATX relay. A short in any of those elements could be causing the trouble.

I have a 1999 Dodge Avenger V6 and the vehicle stopped running yesterday about 2-21/2 blocks from my house. When attempt to restart would not start, tried starting and sounded like it was going to a couple...


Jenifer, it sounds like the oil lines from the oil pump are clogged or the pump itself is defective. Please do not run the engine until you get it checked out. If the oil pump in the bottom pan is not pushing oil to the top of the engine the valves and cams are not being lubricated and will burn up...Bue, Bye engine!

98 Dodge Avenger 2.5L V6 isn't getting any spark.


Do you mean it's actually grinding while trying to start or it just cranks & won't fire?If it's the latter,i've had to replace 2 distributors on my 99 2.5 because the sensor which isn't serviceable has failed.

Transmission codes:


I WOULD TRY REPLACING THE INPUT SPEED SENSOR..A DEFECTIVE SPEED SENSOR CAN CAUSE ALL OF THESE FAULTS..IT IS LOCATED IN FRONT OF TRANS ABOVE SOLENOID PACK..IT IS THE ONE CLOSEST TO THE ENGINE..IT SCREWS INTO TO TRANSMISSION..A 1 INCH SOCKET FITS IT..ALSO CHECK WIRING TO BOTH SPEED SENSORS..A SENSOR IS ABOUT 35 BUCKS,AVAILABLE AT YOUR LOCAL DODGE DEALER..GET A NEW ONE AND YOU'LL SEE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE..FAIRLY COMMON PROBLEM..HAVE REPLACED LOTS OF THEM

O2 sensor


are you sure that it is still the O2 censor? are you assuming because the check engine light is still on? because you have to reset it after fixing something you just disconnect your battery completely for a bit like 15mins and then reconnect it and the light should go away.

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start


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.
