Make sure battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, check the basics. Have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse.
If your missing everything, I'd check the cam and crank sensor signals. I realize you replaced the crank sensor.
Any applicable trouble codes? I don't know what testing you have done?
With idle issues clean the throttle body and idle air control, see if it helps? Could be other issues?

turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.

You could have a bad cold start valve, go to an auto parts store and buy the cold start valve and replace it. you will see it on the intake manifold also pull off the air cleaner or hose and get a can of berry mans carb cleaner and clean the throttle plate inside and out then lube the throttle cables with Wd 40 then try it, if it starts your set, if not try pushing the throttle all the way to the floor and crank for 15 seconds then wait one minute then slightly press the gas pedal and try starting again this is how you clear flooded engine. If it starts you know that the throttle plate or cable froze shut and would not allow air into the engine causing it to flood. also check that the O-ring is not missing on the distributor cap which would allow condensation to form inside the cap shorting out the plugs and allowing it not to run. if it does it again pull the cap and look inside the cap if you see moisture then you need to replace the cap and rotor and O-ring.

I have a 2004 Dodge Stratus (4cyl) that idles rough (almost stalls out), dies on start up and recently had a flashing engine light (backfire error). Any suggestions? No other issues, water pump and timing...


Could be the idle air control, once these start hanging up inside, they can cause as variety of problems with idle speed (can become wildly random) or simply a failure to idle at all.

These links should help:
Where is the idle air control valve located on 2004 Dodge Stratus

This could also be caused by a failing ignition pack.

2001 Dodge Stratus SE MIL light on problem


sometimes you cant trust those dummy lights, i would keep driving it or have your car parked and turned off and turn you key on to aux. and turn off and the turn on aux again, and the ck engine light will blink count the blinks and spaces and the car will give you a code and if there is something wrong, then the code is were you want to start, look on line for the code or get a 2001 dodge stratus manual that will tell you as well and then go from there

I CHANGED MY BATTERY, NOW MY CAR WILL NOT IDLE


on dodge/chrysler products, when you replace the battery and start the engine, you have to manually hold the idle up with gas pedal for a few minutes so the computer can relearn. it will eventually idle.
