Plugs need to be changed every 30K, and wires, cap, rotor every 60K. Could be a weak coil not putting out enough spark, could be the pickup in the distributor, could be timing is off from stretched timing chain, could be weak compression. Check the basics first.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

1997 dodge stratus code 43 engine light on


Is it worse when it's damp outside? Many times it's as simple as a good healthy tune up. Distributor cap, rotor, plugs and wires. Use champion plugs(these are o.e. on nearly all chrysler products, and work best) and chrysler actually has quire good prices on the rest. You didn't mention engine size, so you may or may not have all of these components. This is not the only possible cause, but it's the most common, and easy to check without special diagnostic equipment. just get a spray bottle, and lightly mist the ignition system components with ordinary tap water), and see if it begins to run ragged, or if there are any sparks. Feel free to contact me with any more questions! Just in passing, don't ever use distilled water for this, as distilled water is actually a much poorer conductor of electricity that tap water, well water, salt water, etc.Strange but true! good luck!

54 code


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Here is what to check let me know if you need help checking this out
most common misfire causes on the cars I've worked on have been:
  1. Spark plugs
  2. Spark plug wires
  3. Ignition coil
  4. Fuel injector
  5. Wiring to fuel injector
  6. Timing Belt
  7. Vacuum leak or stuck open EGR
  8. Contaminated fuel or bad fuel pump
  9. Weak compression
  10. Blown head gasket

Random misfires are some of the trickiest problems to solve, usually an ignition system problem a bad or weak coil pack or possibly a spark plug wire. If not the ignition system then surely a clogged injector.

Did you try swapping plugs & wire with another good cylinder. Maybe bad plug or wire, even though check says wire good.
