If it were my car i would check the fuel pressure, sounds like maybe the fuel pump. first, when it dies and wont start you need to check and see if you have spark. pull off a plug wire and put a scewdriver or such and hold it about a quarter inch from the valve cover while someone cranks the engine. you should see a spark to the valve cover. if no spark then the ignition has problems, like maybe a cam or crank sensor. if there is spark but it dosnt start, its the fuel

SOURCE: my 1996 dodge stratus stalls at idle

  1. Consider the complexity of your car before beginning and take your car to a trusted repair shop. Modern cars (mid-nineties or later) are extremely computer controlled, and it will be difficult for you to make any adjustments. You will want to take it into the shop to address this problem.
  2. The stall is likely caused by either a problem in the electrical system or in the fuel system. Your engine stops running because it is not igniting gas in the cylinders, this occurs either because there isn't gas to ignite, or because it lacks the electrical charge to ignite it.
  3. Drive the car up and down steep hills. Does this change the performance of the engine, or cause it to stall? This might indicate a clogged fuel filter. Replacing the fuel filter is relatively cheap and easy once you find out where it's located.
  4. Does the car idle roughly and stall when at idle? If your car has a distributor, you may need to adjust the timing. With the right tools and know how, this is an easy and free task. If your vehicle has fuel injection, you can check the injector by using a screw driver or mechanics scope. The injectors will make a clicking/snapping sound if working. No sound would indicate a bad injector available at most DIY auto parts stores. Also check the ICM, idle control motor that controls the air mixture.
  5. If your car has a distributor, you might consider changing the cap, rotor, wires and plugs. This is effectively a tune up. This can usually be done even by a relative novice to car repair, and take a couple of hours with the right tools. It seems counterintuitive, but even the wires and distributor decay over time, and transmit less electricity. This tune up may solve your stalling problem -- even if not, your car should run better and get better mileage.
  6. If your car diesels when you turn off the ignition, it often signals the need to replace the spark plugs. Dieseling describes the situation where you turn off the key, yet the car continues to run for a few seconds or longer, eventually sputtering to a stop.
  7. In rare cases, your car may stall due to what is commonly called a "vapor lock". It is actually a vacuum in the fuel line that causes fuel to eventually stop reaching the engine. Try opening your gas cap. If you hear a "whooshing" sound, like when you open a can of coffee, it's vapor lock. Now try starting the car. It should work after a couple tries. This is usually found only in older cars. If you have it, this will probably happen again, so your fuel line should be checked for blockage. A cheap fix is to drill a small hole in your gas cap to allow air in and prevent the vacuum from forming, but it should not be left this way.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge stratus crankshaft sensor location?

The crankshaft or the shankcraft as we refer to it is inside the engine, it turns over the pistons. Never heard of such an animal. You may have a fuel pump going out, clogged fuel filter, fuel injectors, Idle air control valve going out, bad plugs, plug wires or distributors. Just began checking them one at a time.

SOURCE: crankshaft seal blows out oil leak

The fix is replacement of motor!! I have the same problem and have already paid $700 in repairs to fix seal just to find out that the seal is being knocked out by loose crank shaft..Car had 60000 miles when I bought it 4 months ago, from a dealership, and now it needs a motor replacement..I stiil owe $5000 on a car that is worth $0..Dodge did not give the 100000 mile warranty they love to advertise on TV for the '06 Stratus..They only gave 36000 warranty because they did not think it would last much longer..Will never buy Chrysler product again!! They do not stand behind what they sell or they would have 100000 mile warranty on all their cars..

I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus and awhile ago I switched the plugs to a Autolite plug. Then I decided there might a problem and went back to the Champion plugs.


I believe the factory originals are champion brand, and would have been platinum, but it should still run decent with the coppers. The only thing I can think of is they are of the wrong gap. Copper plugs do not come pre- gapped at all and need to be done by installer. The gap for your stratus, if it's a 4 cylinder is .050. Wrong gap will cause no power and shaking. Correct champion number in copper is #443, and should say that on the box/plug.

May be the cam position sensor or connector. Sometimes oil will leak on the connector and short the circuit out causing the ignition to shut down.

Check the vacuum hoses

Check the egr system. Without proper mixture of carbon monoxide. It could be running hot . Your car would have a high idle because its getting air to feed the fire instead of the non burnable carbon monoxide.This would raise the temp too.

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.
