Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus

A 2004 Dodge stratus with the 4 cylinder that will not start

I have a 2004 Dodge stratus with the 4 cylinder 2.4L DOHC and the rpm's would get to 2000 and the engine would start to cut out.(like it was out of gas) then the engine shut down and now will not start. I cheked the codes on the car and it led me to think that it was the crank shaft position sensor and the cam shaft sensor. it was a p0016 and a p0340 I replaced both of the sensors and the car still will not start. I'm thinking that it might be the timing belt. am i going in the right direction? or just wasting money?

    I took off the timing cover and the belt is broke so I'm going to change the timing belt. if you have any hints on how to get the motor mount on the passenger side off the front of the motor, that would be verry helpfull.

    thanks for your time

    It is a interference motor but I have it a part and I have the belt so I think that I will put it in and see if it is trashed or not. I have talked to some people and thay got lucky and it was fine. the most that I will be out is some of my time if it is trashed.

    thanks for your time

    And if you decide to buy a used motor from a junk yard, get one with a warranty. Even if they offer you one for $100 "as-is" don't do it. Get at least a month warranty. One of my customers learned that the hard way.

    No problem man. Just FYI, it is possible for the pistons to slightly bend the valves. So if everything works out smooth and the cylinder(s) will either not fire because of low compression or if it does not run smoothly, you may have bent valves. If that's the case the only way to inspect the valves are to remove the cylinder head from block, and if you do this, also check the valve keepers and retainers for any cracks, wear or damage (you can also have an automotive machine shop inspect the cylinder head for a small fee). Good luck :)

    If your timing belt broke... you may be out of an engine. There are 2 types of engines; interference and non-interference. In interference engines the valves and pistons can collide causing allot of damage to parts which may include valves, valve keepers, and possibly breaking piston(s). I can possibly find out if your engine is interference or not at work tomorrow. If it is non-interference, you just got a lucky slam dunk, replace belt (might as well do all other timing components and water pump while you have everything apart) and you should be good to go! I'll try getting back to you within the next 24 hours.

    You may be over your head my friend, your problem can cause grey hairs on experienced technicians... Do you know if ASD relay is engaging?

    Any blown fuses?

    Any recent work (or tinkering) performed?

  • Justin Schreier May 11, 2010

    Check fuel pressure. I had a vehicle in the shop with the same problem. If the fuel pump can't send enough fuel that the engine needs it's going to stumble or die. But that's just one suggestion.

Sounds like you have a scan tool..... did you reset erase the codes then recheck to see if fixed...
also check the wires at sensor and starter motor and battery volts also is the oil/grease on sensor... low oil will also turn on poo16 but po340 is a sensor

Code p 16 refers to crankshaft position/cam shaft position bank 1 sensor A--correlation====causes ---wiring---CKP sensor ( crankshaft position sensor )---mechanical fault

code p 0340 refers to -camshaft (CMP) sensor A bank 1 circuit malfunction ===causes wiring--CMP sensor--ECM
cosrs nothing to check the timing belt , just remove the oil filler cap and see if the rockers are moving when turning it over
the clue here may be bewteen the 2 codes , the word correlation and circuit malfunction so check the wiring, harness connections for pin corrosion and then substitute the ECM with a know good unit as the correlarion and circuit malfunction could be in the ECM
if the ECM program is not getting good reports for both sensors then it reasons that the piston and cam shaft are not timed properly and so will not allow it to start

This code is set the camshaft position sensor, it is part of the ignition system, this can cause your loss of power.

SOURCE: 2003 stratus cam sensor replaced still unresolved

you bypassed the wires that connect to the sensors? that would have been my first guess the harness that plugs into the sensor. after that i would check the ground connection from the ecm. wouldn't hurt to check the battery posts too. if the battery posts are oxidized you can have all kinds of goofy electrical problems. hope that helps.

SOURCE: CAM SENSOR ENGINE LIGHT. MAX RPM 2000 SOMTIMES

I seen this before first of all don't let the car dealer to BS the way to your money, most of the time is noting wrong whit the sensor it self but is the plug than goes in to the sensor this what i recommend is to buy another sensor from your local auto part store or salvage yard (cheaper) get three pieces of cable and solder directly in to the sensor brake the plastic around the sensor plug if necessary and secure the three cables to it put some silicon in between the solder and the place the new sensor on top of the old one so you now wish wire goes to which and cut and attach one by one. I now this works 100% i have done it my self many times if you need diagrams or sensor locations you can find that at www.alldatadiy.com now if you still have problems unplug all harness especially all the ones than comes from the back of the engine because that engine tends to leak oil on top of the harness if you have wires doing shortcut replace that section you can solder use heat string tube and change the insulation hose they sale those on part stores to put some zip tides on the ends and you will have your car back and will last Note don't let it get to close to the exhaust use zip tides to keep from touching hot areas.

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge Stratus ? Camshaft Position Sensor causing problems (I

I had the same problem with my '05 Stratus SXT 2.4 DOHC. I've replaced the cam pos sensor and it seems to be running fine right now. On the Dodge forums a lot of the guys say that you need to replace the crank pos sensor too. I've bought one of those just in case it comes back again. Hope this helps.

No ingnition fire on cylinders 2 and 4 2004 dodge stratus 2.4 L engine


Easy! The DIS module has failed...!

The Stratus 2.4L engine uses what is called "a wasted spark" ignition system, that feeds two cylinders with the same ignition coil. Havind a pair of Cylinders dead means one of the coils or the module is inoperative. Amclaussen.
