2001 Dodge Stratus,, Please Help

Hello, i have a 2001 Dodge Stratus, 3.0 and i have tried everything to make the service engine light to go off, but no luck. I took it to the mechanic shop they saw the code and told me that it's giving them the code for EGR and then they replaced that, but still the light is coming bak with thesame code. I went back they replaced the EGR again, saying that the EGR was defective, however, with no uck the light came back on, everything is fine with the car. always on time with oil change, got a new radiator, changed the hoses, cleaned the carbon buildup, new motrmouth, everything is almost brand new. Now they said that it mght be the sulenoinds and they replaced two of the three. Now im waiting for the 3rd one to be replaced. Please Help,, i cant take that service engine light anymore. Thanks

    I have had that problem. Have you made sure that your gas cap has a good seal? If the seal is not good the service engine light will come on and after you make the seal tight (when putting on the gas cap make sure it clicks 3 to 4 times) it make take a few trips for the light to go off.

    Same here service engine light was on but when I had mine looked at I actually have an oxygen sensor that was bent and needs replacing. Might have those sensors looked at. Not sure if your 01 Stratus is an ES but mine is and it has 3 sensors. Good luck.

    Mine does the same thing, had it totally looked over by 2 mechanics and
    they both reset it and within minutes of driving it came back on.

I've had the same problem with mine in the past,Replace the gas cap. Look to see if present cap has any cracks in the rubber seal, If so replace it and wait a few days for it to go out. And be sure it is on as tight as possible before the "Clicking sound starts..."

My 2001 dodge startus transmission wont shift, speedometer works, engine light is on. Need help?

Transmission is in limp mode. This enables you to drive the car to service. Anytime there is a transmission code in the computer even if nothing is wrong it will stay in limp mode until the code is erased. Most retail auto parts stores will run an obd2 diagnostic scan to determine the problem and erase existing codes, no charge (Auto Zone, Advance and others)

2001 dodge stratus want crank

It could be But my guess is it is the safety netural switch could even be a starter you can test it but you need jumper wires with aligator clips, you can try turning on the lights and turn the key switch over and if the lights dim slightly then it means it is making contact and pulling volatage but not starting, if the lights don't dim slightly then it could be the safety netural switch. If you can work with jumper wires and a couple safety stands I can help you test it.

Service engine soon light is on in a 2001 Dodge Stratus

Also try disconnecting the battery cables to clear the codes. If they come back then try the Autozone route for a free diag. If you come up with a code we can help you in determining what needs to be replaced. I sell parts at a Chrysler dealer and I have access to all kinds of info on these like codes and frequent problems and solutions.
