Question about 1999 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Car trys but wont start

I bought a 99 stratus, with a 2.4l, it had been siting for a year. I dove it home fine, now it wont start...it trys, but wont catch all the way for more than 30 seconds or so. I unsnaped the fuel line at the fuel rail and push in the vale with a scewdriver to open it, then turned the key on, I only got fuel for a second, then it stoped, if you turn the key off and then back on, it does it again....any ideas?

Might be bad gas or it sounds like your fuel pump is out. It doesn't cost very much but I think it is located in the tank itself. Drain the tank and discard the old gas. take down the tank and replace the pump. This should fix your problem.

1996 Dodge stratus es automatic wont shift outta low gear .is this a sensor issue?


probably not if it is limp mode
the ECM puts the car in limp mode to prevent serious problems in the engine or transmission
could be no coolant, sump oil , transmission oil etc
run the fault codes and find the reason for the mode

I have a 96 dodge stratus the wont start trys to turn over but wont start, changed plugs, fuel pump, and fuel injector and the fuel regulator sensor. any ideas on what is wrong with it?


Have you tried spraying starter fluid in the air intake and cranking it? If it starts for a few seconds at least you know that it is a fuel problem and not electrical. You could also check each of the plugs for spark but I prefer the first method. Good luck!
