    I did some research and the fuel filter is located by the tank. Back the car onto some car ramps. Chock front wheels and put park brake on of course. Follow your filler pipe down to the tank. Your fuel filter you will see mounted with a bracket near tank. It looks like a small tin can. Out of curiosity, are you sure your fuel pump was gone the first time? Why did you change it? . Also, Im not sure where you are from, but this new ethonol gas additive is clogging up filters and pumps badly. Food for thought

Look in your manual. Sometimes cars have a fuel reset switch, and when pressure is lost it has to be reset. When you turn the key to acc. do you hear the fuel pump humming? If not, check your fuses. Did you disconnect the battery when pump was replaced? If not, check the ignition and fuel relays. When the electrical wire goes on and or off, it can give off an arc and trip these relays. Listen for pump humming. Did you replace the fuel filter as well? . Might be dirty Let me know how you make out, and if you have any questions feel free

SOURCE: Fuel Pump

IF YOU USED STARTING FLUID THEN FUEL IS GETTING TO THE ENGINE, CHECK THE TIMING BELT AND IF THAT IS OK CHECK AT THE SPARKPLUGS TO SEE IF YOU HAVE SPARK.

SOURCE: im trying to locate the fuse for the fuel pump on my 2001 dodge s

it's likely located in the fuse panel in the engine compartment near the battery. not exactly sure which relay it is... if you are lucky it's marked on the inside bottom of the cover that you have to remove to get to the relays.

SOURCE: cant seem to find the fuel filter on the 2001 dodge stratus

most likely no filter that you can service. most of these chryslers have them in the fuel tank as part of the fuel pump

I have a 97 dodge stratus. It won't start. Tried


Make sure it's getting fuel. Try using some ether or starting fluid. If it rumbles to life but doesn't stay running then there's a problem with the fuel delivery system. i.e.... Fuel pump, clogged filter, pressure regulator.... If the ether doesn't change the results you are getting now then it's a fire or sensor problem. Ignition coil, relays, sensors not signaling, PCM... I wish you luck. Let us know how it turns out

2001 dodge stratus fuel pump turns on but no fuel coming through fuel line, change fuel pump relay, still doesn't pump fuel to engine.


I will assume there is fuel in the tank if so then i would say the pump is bad or there is a pinched line, a 2001 stratus it may be the pump.

the only other thing would be if the injectors where not working, if you could put a fuel pressure gauge on the injector rail to see if there is any pressure, this will tell you if it is the pump or something else.

2001 dodge stratus 3.0 v6 starts but fuel pump and injectors don't work. What could the problem be?


You would need to check the fuel pump and injector circuits for power.
There is a fuel pump relay and an ASD relay that could be faulty.

Fuel pump relay switch location


A lot of Ford models put the switch on or near the gas tank. I had a 96 Taurus and it did the same thing. It was located on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It was fairly easy to reach. Didn't have to remove anything.

2002 dodge stratus shutters and wont accelerate


Make sure that a tune-up isn't the problem, such as spark plugs, fuel filters, then start with the fuel pump psi. Then the torque convertor in the transmission could be at fault.

MY 2001 DODGE STRATUS WILL START AND RUN UNTIL THW ENGINE IS WARM THEN SPUTTER AND THEN DIES. WHAT IS WRONG?


Sounds like a clogged fuel filter of a dying fuel pump. Start with the fuel filter, they are usually less than 20 bucks and pretty easy to change. If it persists, check into changing the fuel pump. Good luck.
