Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
Cranks but won't start
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.

SOURCE: Crank shaft sensor
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

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?

if truck has a ceramic ballist resistor near and connected to coil this could be problem or the crk posistion sensor could be too, i would change ballast first if you have on your truck appx cost $10

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.
