Question about 1999 Dodge Avenger

1 Answer

99 dodge avenger 2.5L V6 will not start at times and when it does it will run fine but without hesitation just shut off and wont restart for a period of time. I have replaced fuel pump, fuel filter, distributor, spark plugs, wires and drained and added full tank fuel with injector cleaner additive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

There are so many things that could cause this issue, including crank sensor, cam sensor, and too many to list. But i would start with those first. There a few simple tests that your local repair shop can do, and will usually cost you an hour diagnostics time. If its 1 of those 2 sensors, it will be a relatively inexpensive repair. By the way, do you have a check engine light on.

I have a 1999 Dodge Avenger V6 and the vehicle stopped running yesterday about 2-21/2 blocks from my house. When attempt to restart would not start, tried starting and sounded like it was going to a couple...


Jenifer, it sounds like the oil lines from the oil pump are clogged or the pump itself is defective. Please do not run the engine until you get it checked out. If the oil pump in the bottom pan is not pushing oil to the top of the engine the valves and cams are not being lubricated and will burn up...Bue, Bye engine!

98 Dodge Avenger 2.5L V6 isn't getting any spark.


Do you mean it's actually grinding while trying to start or it just cranks & won't fire?If it's the latter,i've had to replace 2 distributors on my 99 2.5 because the sensor which isn't serviceable has failed.

My 1997 Dodge Avenger's engine won't start


Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.
