Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus
I don't know if i can give you a definite answer to your question because there are so many different things that can cause these symptoms but I'm going to try my best to give you a good starting point.
you need to do an OBD2 scan on your cars computer for trouble codes I bet its going to show the TPS sensor is bad. even if it doesn't the problem sound to me as one thats on and off again. so it may register as good when in fact it is bad so go ahead and replace it.
If the TPS ( throttle position sensor ) goes out the computer does not know what position the throttle is at and can cause it to accelerate or stall. this sensor also tells the computer how much fuel to give the engine wich could lead to the smell of unburned fuel
you can buy the TPS online for as little as $35.00 and they are very easy to change yes this you can do yourself without a mechanics degree. also you can do the scan too... OBD2 scanner $35.00 ebay comes with code book and it will clear codes this can save you big money if this car becomes a parts hog.
also it is good on all cars with a OBD2 plug basically1986 and up I hope this does the trick if you have any questions or if doesn't im here to help just let me know
