Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint which sensor or part is not working correctly that caused the hesitation and the check engine light to come on.

Take it to someone who can read the OBDII scan codes out of the computer. You may be seeing signs of incipient catastrophic engine failure.

I HAVE A 2000 DODGE STRATUS WAS DRIVING FINE DIDNT DRIVE FOR A DAY GOT IN THIS MORNING TURNS OVER BUT WONT FULLY START ENGINE IS THIS MY TIMING BELT


If the timing belt went or slipped you would have backfiring or worse. It is likely another issue such as cap/rotor, control module, sensor(s) or fuel pump. Is the check engine light on?

Hope this helps.

.Ok I have a 01


It sounds to me like there is a problem with your Idle Speed Control solenoid/motor. (ISC) These can sometimes fail without turning on the Check Engine light. If the Check Engine light is coming on while you are driving, you should have the computer system checked out first. This will lead you to the proper fix.

2001 Dodge Stratus SE MIL light on problem


sometimes you cant trust those dummy lights, i would keep driving it or have your car parked and turned off and turn you key on to aux. and turn off and the turn on aux again, and the ck engine light will blink count the blinks and spaces and the car will give you a code and if there is something wrong, then the code is were you want to start, look on line for the code or get a 2001 dodge stratus manual that will tell you as well and then go from there

What brings on this question might I ask? Low engine out put from the unlikely stuck or burnt valve could upset the transmisson shift points. TPS signal is based on a pre mapped torque curve. If the power isn't there then yes the transmisson could have issues. What makes you feel there is a problem with the intake valve? And also is this the 2.7L engine?
