Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus

2 Answers

I have a 2002 Dodge Stratus and it will fire up and run. Then once my car reaches normal temps it starts chugging and wants to stall. If you keep your foot on the gas it will stay running. I have changed the oil pressure sensor because my oil light would come on when you stopped. That fixed that problem. But with the stalling and not being about to start back up until the car was cold I have changed the crank shaft sensor the cam shaft sensor and the problem is still there.. I squeezed the top radiator hose while the car was warm and running and there was no pressure or fluid flowing through the hose and into the coolant bleeder.. Can you please tell me what I'm doing wrong. It has a 2.7 liter motor by the way..

Poss. bad 02 sensor. you need to have it scanned for codes. on this engine the water comes out of the engine on the side of the block. you have to bleed the air out of this system. thats what the bleeder is for. the hose that fits there is where the water goes into the engine.

SOURCE: 95 saturn won't start when hot

Blair, I would take a look at he TPS (throttle position sensor) located on the throttle body. In other words, it sounds as thought sensor when heated is changing its value to "open" or "shorted".
If the car starts OK when cold, use a hair dryer to heat the TPS when the engine is cold to see if you can duplicate the problem.
Also is the a service engine light on? Codes?
If you have a "digital volt/ohm meter" available you can read the variable resistance of the sensor when the problem occurrs to determine if the sensor is defective.

Loss of power and stall.


Does it have any codes? Not a Dodge tech but my assumption is something is getting hot and cutting out. The question would be what... Throttle position sensor going bad, mass airflow sensor needing cleaning would be a prime suspect, cam sensor or something along those lines.

Engine runs between normal and upper normal temp


Don't run the car without a thermostat. It helps the car to reach operating temps quickly. also helps burn off blow by gasses by keeping the temps up and steady. check your radiator level once driving a few miles. Their may have been some air pockets that purged and need to be replaced with additional fluid.

Engine runs hot on 2001 Stratus R/T 3.0L V6


Hello, as previously suggested by my collegue it appears you have an air lock. Have you tried parking the vehicle on level ground, from cold with radiator cap off start the car and leave it idling. Make sure the fluid/coolant levels are o.k. and let the engine reach operating temp. Keep some warm water handy and watch/listen the water/coolant system (Keep a safe/sensible distance from radiator) hopefully after a while the system will bubble and boil up let it settle for a few seconds and then top up with very warm water do this until it hopefully stops belching out of radiator. Replace cap and hopefully top and bottom hoses will be warm. Oh! nearly forgot keep all heater controls on hot with blower on full..(Inside the vehicle)
Finally I'm not joshing but is the thermostat in the right way round and functioning correctly? to test drop it in some boiling water it should open almost immeadiatly.
sorry for the epic but I'm here to help and hopefully save you time and money.
Good luck and a Happy New Year to you and your family!
