Question about 1999 Dodge Avenger

1 Answer

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 of times but never actually kicked over and ran. Today when attempted to start it turned over right away with no problems. I am not sure y the vehicle did this but the oil pressure gauge runs below middle line except when pushing on the gas pedal but after running for 20+ minutes the oil dipstick is barely warm. What could have happened to make it stop running and seem fine today and what could make the dipstick not heat up after 20+ minutes of the vehicle running.

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!

SOURCE: truck wont start

1.) spray engine starting fluid into air intake ---remove air filter if necessary.
2.) if ignition only on this spray, then seek bad fuel supply problem.
3.) if no ignition, check for spark.

SOURCE: 2008 Dodge Avenger window problem?

Sounds like u have a bad window regulator which is a system of channels and guide wires that move the window up & down. since i do not know the whole situation I would make sure the window channels are lubricated with silicone spray to make sure the window is not being held up on anything.

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.

How do you know it is getting plenty of fuel, did you do a pressure test? I would check for spark on all of the cylinders. You also don't mention if this is the V6 or the 4-cylinder.

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.

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.
