Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus
If you have air, fuel, and spark. It very well could be the timing belt. To check this, you will see a black cover on the passenger side of the engine. Take the top bolts out, so you can pull the cover back. You should see the belt. Have someone turn the ignition over. Check that the belt is turning. If not, It needs replaced.

SOURCE: 98 Dodge Stratus won't start
Best place to start is with "check engine light". Put vehicle in park, foot on brake, and cycle key on, off, on, off, on, then wait with pen & paper ready to read flashes of check engine lamp. Will be a 2 digit code each time. For example, flash, short pause & flash, will be 11, or flash, flash, short pause, flash, flash would be 22. In between trouble codes you'll get a little longer pause, then it will start to flash again if more than one code, which is quite possible. Also note that I say key to on, not start, just on.(normal run position) Then get back to us and we'll be able to better help you.

intermittent no start situations generally appear when you have defective crank position sensor (since it cant get idea what the crank angle is) and fuel pump issues( since it cant receive enough fuel)
