Please Help 2002 Stratus Coupe Dies While Driving

I had my battery replaced and the next day while on a road trip from Vegas to CA the car was running a little rough - shifting onto gears (it an automatic) my Check Engine light came on as well as the Brake and Oil lights they flashed from bright to dim several times then the air condition and my radio went out, shortly after (within 5min) my car died while driving 75 mph. The new battery was shot - replaced it and had the altenator checked and passed at 2 different auto parts stores. Within 5 minutes of driving it the car - with the new battery and altenator reinstalled, the car died 3 times all while coming to a stop, however I was able to restart it. Any ideas what's going on? I have about 88,000 miles on it and the spark plugs were replaced about 6 months ago along with a coil?

I would say to have your egr valve checked. Sometimes in these Dodge brands they will get clogged and the air can't flow right. One way you can check if this is happening while driving is to watch your rpms. If they drop a bit then come back up I would assume that is the cause, although I don't remember the radio dying any time his has happened.

2002 Dodge Stratus R/T Coupe Will Not Start


Yes, I've seen a lot of comments on Mitsubishis also. Enough to know I don't want one. Too late to return it? Or determined to keep it?
Check for spark, check fuel pressure. Do you hear the pump turn on for 2 or 3 seconds with key on, not start? Have you tried the resetting with the pump temp sensor again?

I have a 2002 hyundai elantra I have replaced the alternator and got a new battery well it ran for one day then while driving it the next day there was a big clunk like something fell out of the motor then...


crank sensor will cause similar stalling issues. You may have got a bad alternator, if the battery light is on after you jump it, probably needs a new, new alternator. make sure all your connections are tight and plugged in, both on battery and alternator.

The drain tube for the a/c is probably plugged. if you can find the tube where it comes out under the hood,usually on the passenger side low on the firewall. Use a piece of wire and clean it out. This should solve your problem.
