Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus
Car takes longer than usual to start (147000 Miles) even with new spark plugs and wires new air filter always fill up with premium gas. Not sure if my car has a gas filter and where its located. Any suggestion will help, Thanks.
Fiter is inside the tank... thanks to overly clever automotive designers! But I would check the fuel injectors first, as a leaking injector will flood the engine and cause a too long start, caused by the engine clearing the excess gas from the affected cylinder(s).
Other things to check: proper fuel pressure (weak pump or misbehaving pressure regulator), proper battery voltaje during cranking (a weak battery will turn the engine but the computer could be receiving too low voltage). Best luck. Amclaussen.

The spark plugs for that vehicle is Champions. Not anything fancy, just a resistor copper core plugs. DO NOT INSTALL DOUBLE OR SINGLE PLATINUM PLUGS. No bosch, no splitfire, nothing but the champion plug.
ANy other plug and you will start have random misfire codes and other "weird little problems".
I have been a shop owner for years and I tell you this because i have fixed weild little problems just by installing the correct plug. ]
You should change the plugs every 30K miles as well. Look in your owners manual and it should tell you your service schedule

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Stratus Squeaks
I would check the lower control arm bushings and sway bar bushings for the squeak,and the shaken when breaking means you have warped rotors,if it shakes in the steering wheel its the frt,if the whole car shakes then it usaaly means it is in the rear rotorsor drums.

could very well be. alot of cars the light wont come on if the o2 sensor is bad. bad o2 can cause car to use alot of gas. may be more than one sensor.
