If the coil is faulty it will not produce the blue spark necessary for ignition. Check the coil and check the module in the distributor as it may be faulty and not producing the spark when required.. check for voltage at the + side of the coil and then on the - side of the coil to ensure that current is flowing through the coil . Check that the case of the coil is in the bracket securely and if the coil is a plastic body unit ensure that the bolt hole with the metal bit is properly earthed.. IN a coil there are 2 sets of windings . 1 is the primary winding that goes through the coil to the points /module and the other is the 2ndry circuit that is the high voltage windings that need to be earthed out to complete the circuit.

If it is the front wheel drive model, it is in the back side of the motor looking up at it....simple to change.....the side that faces the cab of the vehicle.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge dakota crank no start

Just had that problem w/ my 01 Dekota, it was the resistor that used to be mounted on the firewall and easy to get to but that is now mounted low on the back of the engine jammed into a bey tight position. I couldn't get to it myself, so ended up taking it to neighborhood garage. Cost me about $150

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Stratus will not 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?

SOURCE: my 1997 dodge stratus 2.4l 4cylinder wont start

check your relay box (under the hood black box) for corrosion, just had that on my van and it was a blown relay fuse from a bad connector. Also there might be an issue with the distributor itself (the thing the coil conects to) as that is symptomatic of that. To start- and for sake of ease- wiggle the black box after reseating the fuses (not the clear top ones yyou can see them blown without removing) give the box a good wiggle and a tap or two (not he-man taps mind you) while someone tries to start it. if this all is useless please let me know.

2001 dodge stratus no crank no start from ignition


When you use the ignition key you activate both the starter and ignition circuits. When you jump the starter motor all you do is crank the engine - you have not energized the ignition so car will not start.

2001 dodge stratus 2.4 dohc will the coil pack spark if the valves are bent on the number 2 and 3 cylinders


If the engine cranks, and the cam and crank are close to being in time, the coils should fire.
You just would not have compression on some cylinders.

Hello everyone I have a 2001 dodge stratus coupe 3.0l thats im have problems with it. Is crank works and then stop the car it wont work wait ten minutes then it works any idea what it could be ????


Difficult to follow your english, but I think you are saying the engine dies and you have to wait 10 minutes to restart it.
Someone would need to check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure at the injectors when it won't start to proceed.

My 98 dodge stratus won't startbut it will turn


You need to check if its got air, fuel, and spark. spray some throttle body cleaner in the throttle body and quickly try to start it. if it fires up then your not getting fuel so you may need a fuel pump and filter. If it does nothing check for spark, if you have no spark then you need to check the coils and crank position sensor.

2001 Dodge Stratus WOn't Start


Proper way to jump your car is to attach the jumper cable clamps to the marked posts on your car...on the vehicle that is jumping you, attach the positive clamp to the positive post and the negative clamp to some piece of metal on the vehicle...can even be a screw as long as it sparks a little (grounding). Don't connect the clamp to the negative post.
