Question about 1997 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Request for 1997 Dodge Stratus clarification.

My son was driving and he said that he went over some railroad tracks at approx. 15 mph and the car died and we cannot get it restarted. The engine will crank but not turn over. My stepson, ruling out things, put a timing light to check it and said it wasn't the timing, took the third plug wire off and said it was firing, checked the fuses, and checked the fuel pump which seemed to be working. The car had approx. 3/4 tank of gas. My question could also be can the timing slip enough to stop the engine from running yet plugs get spark and timing belt not broken?

    yes but it is probably the fuel reset that needs to be triped. Look in your owners manual to locate it and try that

My 1997 Dodge Stratus died on me while I was driving. While I was driving the battery light came on and my guages started going crazy and stopped working. Then the car started to sputter light it was out...


your alternator has packed it in. to confirm, have a charging system performance test done, but it is safe to assume by your described symptoms that your require a new alternator. good luck!
