Tune up (plugs,wires,and distributor cap) was done on a '97 Dodge Avenger with the 2.5l engine because it wouldn't start. It ran for 1 day after the tune up,but will not start now. No spark at the plugs. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Mine does the same exact thing occasionally. It will be running great and one day decides NOT to start for no reason. Everytime this happens, I take it to a mechanic that has a diagnostic machine and have my car's computer RE-BOOTED or re-set. Always solves the problem for some reason. I don;t know why it does this.

I loved mine. I got rid of it because I was driving in the boonies when it started to buck. No engine warning light, nothing. Brought it to a mechanic, they couldn't figure it out, was still bucking. I ended up buying a new car because I needed a reliable car for my job. Turned out to be the spark plugs! Argh! I loved the car though! They're pretty rare here, so you knew it was me on the road!

How to change battery in 2008 dodge avenger


Disconnect negative battery cable first then positive then remove battery hold down screws and install in reverse. Use rubber gloves to prevent battery acid with skin contact. I prefer using rubber pliers on negative battery cable. I feel its safer. When putting negative battery cable on, place on holding rubber part not the metal contacts.

I have 97 dodge avenger that the transmission has a mind of its own. I works some time and sometimes it wont do anything. You can take it around the block and it will work some and then it will rev up and...


chrysler has some wired transmission. There is a relay in the fuse box called an ATX relay. It may be getting hot and losing contact. if the check engine light is on I would go to AUTO zone and ask them to pull the codes out of the computer system. There are several things that can cause this problem. Bad battery connections, lose wiring going to the transmission. U might try cleaning all the connectors with a electrical spray that helps clean the contacts. See if there are any codes in the computer than go from there. They could be historical codes..

97 Avenger will not start!


your coil could have gone out, you could need a new distributor, and your fuel pump could be out. but one thing is the fuses and relays check those as well. there is a relay and fuse for almost anything and that would explain why it all of the sudden happened.
