My 2008 Dodge Avenger wont turn over. It cranks and gives a little rumble like it could start but lacking something. Almost as if it did start, it wouldnt stay on long at such a low idle without giving it...

You could have a small (or big....) gas leak in your fuel line (check if you smell abnormal gas fumes) or a defective gas pump. Try this to check: put the ignition key on "accessory" (like is if your in the car but just want to listen to the radio with engine off), this will active the gas pump to "pre-feed" the engine with gas with the correct amount (try it at least 2 times) then try to start the engine.....good luck!

Note: It did happenned to me and it was a leak in the gas line.

I have a 1997 dodge avenger es 2.5 liter here's

Check the vacuum line on the fuel pressure regulator for any sign of gas being sucked into the line. A failed regulator will let extra gas get into the engine. If it's okay, have the fuel pressure checked. That's sure a lot of gas, way too much for the engine. Good luck.

95 avenger transmission leaking

is it the same seal? it sounds like something was not installed good, or a burr on the axle, i would get a second look at another garage to see exactly whats going on, then take it back to the shop that rebuilt it, if it the same seal it could be a defective axle, good luck hope this helps.

1997 dodge avenger es 2.0, when first started weather its hot or cold will run great hold idle at 1k rpm, after a min or so it starts to drop in idle, but when its on the road it runs fine no issues except...

Sounds like your idle air control valve is bad. This valve, like it sounds, controls the idle on your vehicle and from what you make it sound like you are having idle issues. The IAC is located on your throttle body and is pretty easy to change out. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

I have a 2000 dodge avenger es 2.5 v6 and the check engine light came on so i took it to get it tested and it turned out to be a faulty or bad egr valve. What could the problem be? How much would it c

I found your part on Kragen's website and it runs about 100 dollars. The staff in your local store should be able to help guide you in changing it out and may even help you accomplish the task. Pep Boys, Napa Auto Parts, etc. should most likely have the part and the same customer service to help you. Check around though as the prices will most often close to each other can be quite different from time to time.

1997 dodge avenger engine problems V6 2.5

Check your EGR valve. It may be stuck open. I had a similar problem 2 years ago on my 97 avenger w/ 2.5L V6. Engine idled rough and would die when I stopped at a stop sign unless I feathered the gas pedal as I coasted to a stop. Replaced EGR valve, problem solved.
