Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus
I was driving home from work yesterday and the my stratus just died. i came back to it a couple hours later and it fired right up. i drove it home and it ran fine. i shut the car off and fired it up again. then i tried to fire it up once more and then it wouldnt kick on. it turns over fine but it will not start. when i open and slam the trunk to see if that would help the car wont even turn over after that until about a half hour later. now my car isnt turning over at all. the lights come on the radio air and everything it just wont start. keep in mind. ive just had a brand new fuel pump put it when the car was still under warranty and a brand new fuel pump relay and it has been raining where i live for the last couple days. what do you think?

this problem is not unusual ,without seeing the car as i have no product knowledge with american built cars as such,but if it has one coil and not a coil pack then its the ignition module ,these often go just as you describe .Stop car to pop in shop and then no go,this is not the dealers fault they just pack up ,ask dealer nicely and no doubt they will send someone around to put a new one in for you .

I had similar problem with Durango and replaced the "brain" with a refurbished PCM -- google for reburbished PCMs and call the Florida Company and ask they guys there what they think. My fix was < $300.00 by replacing the brain.

Check the battery cable ends to be sure they are tight and wont twist, I had this happen on my 96 grand caravan two years ago.

well i dont think changing the fuel filter will fix whats wrong but the filter should be under the car under the door hooked to the gas line
