The lack of fuel at higher speeds probably caused by a plugged fuel filter. The faster you go the more gas is required and a partially plugged filter would do this. On the blower: I think you need to replace the resistor.

    I have done that 2 times it still keep blowing the resistor !!

    I am sorry I did not go back to read that. You definitely have a short then and what level of fuse do you have for the fan. I would think the fuse would blow before the resistor. You could have a short in the fan controls in the dash. Something is demanding more power than your resistor can handle. So I would look at the dash switch as a probable source of your problem and look at the wiring a state car may have had some extra electrical equipment that is effecting it too. Really need to testing equipment but it might be worth you while to replace the dash switch. Go to a salvage yard and get a used one.

1998 Dodge Stratus 2.4l bogs down suddenly while at cruising speed

You need to get the engine trouble codes by performing the "keydance" or using a code reader, then start checking fuel pressure at pump and regulator. Best luck. Amclaussen.

99 Dodge Stratus that will die while driving then start back up after 30 min or so

Some of that info did not make any sense.
The fuel pressure and the cat converter are not connected in any way.
Neither are the blower motor and the tach.
If it does not start right back up, you will need to figure out if you are missing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors and go from there.
If the check engine light is staying on be sure and get the computer scanned.

Cranking amps

You can get a good 75 - 80 month battery with about 800 cold cranking amps for a reasonable price. The Sears Die Hard is always a good choice. A NAPA battery is also a highly rated battery for longivity and dependability.

Reset computer in doege stratus wont pass inspection drove 50 miles and computer still didnt reset help

U have to operate the engine at all kinds of diff speeds and drive modes, it is called a OBDII drive cycle, here is how u do one.
1. As soon as the engine starts, idle the engine in drive for two and a half minutes with the A/C and rear defrost on. OBDII checks oxygen sensor heater circuits, air pump and EVAP purge.

2. Turn the A/C and rear defrost off, and accelerate to 55 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks for ignition misfire, fuel2_bing.gif trim and canister purge.

3. Hold at a steady state speed of 55 mph for three minutes.

OBDII monitors EGR, air pump, O2 sensors and canister purge.

4. Decelerate (coast down) to 20 mph without braking or depressing the clutch. OBDII checks EGR and purge functions.

5. Accelerate back to 55 to 60 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks misfire, fuel trim and purge again.

6. Hold at a steady speed of 55 to 60 mph for five minutes.

OBDII monitors catalytic converter efficiency, misfire, EGR, fuel trim, oxygen sensors and purge functions.

7. Decelerate (coast down) to a stop without braking. OBDII makes a final check of EGR and canister purge

A/C blows hot air going uphill or pulling a trailer.

you will need to change the clutch fan, under load or high speed will heat up the engine and the clutch fan should ingage to pull more are through the radiator. Also at idle with no air moving through that radiator the clutch should ingage to pull air through.

1999 Dodge Ram van 1500 no pick up power

I had a similiar problem on my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Conversion Van. It ended up being a partial collapse of the catalytic converter which didn't allow adequate exhaust. The problem only showed itself because I could not get over 55 mph going up a small hill.

Hard Accelleration at highway speeds

Since I work in government, my first question should be why would you need to go over 70 mph, but since I have a lead foot and a long list of speeding tickets on my record, I will keep my mouth shut on that topic. While cruising in the 70-80 mph, your transmission should already be in top gear, so you can probably eliminate the transmission. There are several possible causes of your problem including a vacuum leak, fouled plugs, bad spark plug wires, a dirty air filter, or a dirty fuel filter. Review your service records and see what has been replaced and when, then start looking at what hasn't been replaced. Sorry I can't be more precise without laying hands on it.
