Do you mean it's actually grinding while trying to start or it just cranks & won't fire?If it's the latter,i've had to replace 2 distributors on my 99 2.5 because the sensor which isn't serviceable has failed.

I have a 2000 dodge avenger es 2.5 v6 and the check engine light came on so i took it to get it tested and it turned out to be a faulty or bad egr valve. What could the problem be? How much would it c


I found your part on Kragen's website and it runs about 100 dollars. The staff in your local store should be able to help guide you in changing it out and may even help you accomplish the task. Pep Boys, Napa Auto Parts, etc. should most likely have the part and the same customer service to help you. Check around though as the prices will most often close to each other can be quite different from time to time.

Need to replace


In order to replace it you would have to take off  your inkate manifold. Then the tire gaurd to get to the bolts for the alternator and when you lossen the alternator you have to play around with it to get it through the top. 
I would also reccomend grabbing a haynes manual for your avenger. You can find them on ebay pretty cheap, and you can usually pick them up at your local auto parts stores.

1997 dodge avenger engine problems V6 2.5


Check your EGR valve. It may be stuck open. I had a similar problem 2 years ago on my 97 avenger w/ 2.5L V6. Engine idled rough and would die when I stopped at a stop sign unless I feathered the gas pedal as I coasted to a stop. Replaced EGR valve, problem solved.

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start


Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.
