I posted this response to a similar situation. I am dealing with it now and have narrowed it down to these issues...

The O2 sensor, the speed sensor or the MAP sensor may be one of the problems. The MAP sensor measure the air pressure in the manifold. It is commonly mounted on the fender and is low in cost and easy to replace. To test it if your if your car won't start, unplug the electrical connection from the MAP sensor. If it starts, then you know to replace the MAP sensor. The Hall Effect sensor can fail and not set an error code. This is an inespensive part that sits underneath the rotor in the distributor cap on cars without distributorless ignition. This only applies to cars made after 1996. Also check the fuel injectors and fuel filter.

If you have a burglar alarm, make sure that it is not causing the problem. It often times can cause the stalling issue.

I hope this helps!

I have a 2004 Dodge Stratus (4cyl) that idles rough (almost stalls out), dies on start up and recently had a flashing engine light (backfire error). Any suggestions? No other issues, water pump and timing...


Could be the idle air control, once these start hanging up inside, they can cause as variety of problems with idle speed (can become wildly random) or simply a failure to idle at all.

These links should help:

This could also be caused by a failing ignition pack.

Check the MAP sensor. This measures the air pressure in the maniforld. It is commonly mounted on a fender, low cost and easy to replace.

To test, unplug the electrical connection from the MAP sensor. If it starts, replace the sensor.

1996 Dodge Stratus stalls when starting


I had this problem with my 99 Durango and went to AutoBeef.com to discover this was a major problem with 98 & 99 Durangos. The fix was easy -- PCM "brain" was exchanged with a refurbished PCM "brain" from an online PCM company in Florida. You can google as I can't remember name of company. I called them and they said - Yep this is the fix -- the guys told me 3 screws all I had gone to several mechanics and dealers -- none could figure it out. I was so grateful that someone gave me the clue I needed.
