2001 Dodge Stratus will not start

I just bought a 2001 Dodge Stratus that will turn over, but will not start. I replace the spark plugs, wires, coil pack and have checked all the fuses. I also look at the timing belt and it seem to be ok, lined up right. I also have checked all the fuses and they are ok. Please Help

  • ahawkins0307 Apr 25, 2009

    Ok thanks so much, i will try it this evening when I get home from work. When I was trying to start it, I press down on the gas and it did give a little sound like it was attempting to start, but never did. It just keep turning over, but no start.

Take air intake hose off at throttle body, open up throttle plate, and spray about 2 or 3 seconds of WD-40 into the throttle body. Now try to start it, if it kicks over & starts for a second or 2, then you've got spark, but not fuel in most cases. Let us know results. Can you hear a "hum " from rear area (gas tank) ,of car when you turn key to on position, but not start?

    On a fuel injected vehicle, you shouldn't have to touch the gas pedal when starting.

I have a dodge stratus 2000 with 2.4 liter dohc motor, ran fine then stalled once started right no spark will not start


Try using one of the old plugs and connect it to #1 and a good ground then try starting to visually confirm if spark is/is not present. Its much easier to see the spark in the dark. If you get a spark the problem is not electrical and could be a bad ground between the plug and the block, rarely happens, but not unheard of.

How do you change the spark plugs in a '02 dodge


You have to remove the intake plenum, the plugs are under it (2.5L), in 2.7L removing the plenum will not help anything.

If you look under the wiper cowl area on the back head you will see the 3 coils just like on the Front bank. remove the coils and the plugs are underneath. you will need a spark plug socket, 3 in extension, and a 1 in extension to get these out because of the clearance.

This models work for 2001 until 2006.

Hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

There may be a ground wire that you forgot to put back or a power wire that give power to the coils. Re-check all electrical wiring and make sure they are all connected. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
