I have a 2004 dodge stratus . when i stop at a red light the engine will stop, but the engine will start back up so far . whats going on to cause this.

salesman and shop mechanic blah bl;ah to sell a vehicle
try this simple test
when stopped apply the hand brake
start the engine and if it stays running , put your foot on the brake
if it stops but restarts when you take your foot of the brake to start it , the the problem is more than likely a failing brake booster
also to check for other problems take it to a service center or autozone and have the fault codes read

Why2004 dodge stratusstalls while driving

Have you checked the code to see what it tells you. I can say by experaince that our cut off and then one day stopped aty a stop light. It had to have the computer reprogramed and we were told this was an issue with this car. It could be as simple as a tune up, gas pump...etc. Check the code and it can save you time and money.
