Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
I believe I may have had a similar problem. I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus ES with a 2.7L V6. I just recently finished doing a complete engine rebuild. Upon putting the entire thing back together, I tried to start the engine but to my dismay, only heard a fast loud clicking sound coming from under the engine. I determined the sound to be coming from the starter. After a few hours of tinkering, I removed the starter and found that the thin aluminum starter-to-bell-housing gasket was warped and since it only mates on the edge of the bell housing, I t had warped inward and was jammed against my flywheel. I resolved the problem by pulling the gasket out and using wire clippers to cut off the useless half of the gasket that was doing nothing but jamming the flywheel. I replaced the half of the gasket that actually mates the two surfaces and like magic, the car started on the first try. I've been driving the car for about 600 miles now on a freshly rebuilt engine and have yet to notice any problems. Best of luck to you.

Need to check the condition of the battery. Use a volt meter and check the voltage before trying to start the motor. Have someone to try to start the motor while you check the voltage on battery at the same time. If the voltage dropps to either a 10 or less, replace the battery. If the battery is 4 years old or older then replace it. Hope this will help you.
