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.

Check the vacuum line on the fuel pressure regulator for any sign of gas being sucked into the line. A failed regulator will let extra gas get into the engine. If it's okay, have the fuel pressure checked. That's sure a lot of gas, way too much for the engine. Good luck.

1997 dodge avenger won;t start. engine has no spark. checked the spark plugs, they look good.


Does your engine turn over, just not fire? if it sounds like it wants too start but its not firing, try your distributor. this happened to my car last week actually, went out and bought a new dist. and it is fine now. its a big expense, so try to find one at a junk yard and they say you can take it back if its not that. thats your best bet. hope it helps.

Where is the egr located on a 1997 dodge avenger es with a 2.5L V6


The egr itself is on the backside of the engine closest to the firewall towards the driver side. You have to lean past the intake to get to it. The resonator is about 4-5" to the left (passenger side) of it.
