Check spark plugs or replace and put some stabilazor in your gas with some injection cleaner or add some high oxtane gas with the old.Hope this helps.

My 2005 dodge stratus set for about a month and a half without periodically starting it. I'm ready to start driving it again and it wont start. It has gas.it wants to start and will turn over but wont


Are you mechanically inclined?
Here are a couple things to try:
1. Turn the key to ON (don't crank the engine
then OFF and back ON - several times.
this will pulse the fuel pump several times to charge the fuel rail.
then try to start.
2. If it doesn't catch/start right away - hold the throttle to the floor while cranking. This will put the Computer in "Start Flooded Engine" mode and turn OFF the fuel injectors.
If those things don't work - some serious diagnostics will be in order - let me know how this works :)

My girlfriends 2003 dodge stratus died suddenly. she tried to start it and it cranked over then stopped. good battery. what possible things should i check and start?`


Timing belt is most likely cause of sudden shut down. The Stratus has a noninterference engine so no damage occurs and the belt change is an easy fix.Open the area. Remove the belt tensioner at the 7 o'clock position compress it and put a pin in the small hole to hold it, Line up the timing marks put the new belt on and pull the pin. Some times it;s the bearing on the crank pulley that fails. If you change it be sure to put the flange to the front, thats what keeps the belt from coming off.

Car won't start 2003 Dodge Stratus sxt coupe cranks but won't start what could b the problem? I tried spraying starting fluid in the air system but it still won't start!


i would check and see if spark pluges are firing. you can take one out and plug into spark plug wire then let the bottom of the plug sit on engine and get someone to try to start while you look at the plug to see if there is any fire. if you have no fire or fuel it would be the crankshaft sencer. it could be the timing belt but the motor would sound different turning over then it used to.

My dodge stratus wont start it will turn over but wont start


Listen for the fuel pump when you first turn on the key to the run position. If you hear it then spray a small amount of starting fluid in air intake while someone tries to start it if the engine fires then most likely a Crank Position Sensor. The CPS controls your injectors.

I have a 2003 dodge stratus and all the lights work but the car wont crank over. I BANGED ON THE STARTER ALSO JUST NO CTANK


Check fuses, look at engine compartment fuse box, finda ASD relay swap it with horn relay. Try starting in neutral with foot on brake pedal(neutral saftey switch maybe bad). Check power at starter big wire(Need 12v+) check small wire while someone cranks car for you, you need a 12v+ while cranking, then it will go dead while not cranking. Cycle key-fob lock unlock, manually lock unlock driver's door(anti-theft problem). Check for faulty after market alarm system. (disabling starter).

It dies out when im driving,and still has power


The crankshaft sensor is a common problem for your situation. When you have a problem, it won't start as the engine is hot. Open the hood, let it cool then you can start it again. Have a shop diagnose on the crank shaft sensor and replace it. Good luck.

I have a 2003 stratus and it wont start... Crank sensor???


In a HOT day,old battery and fuel pump will be the prime troublemaker.

You need to charge up the battery and check for 12.4-13.6V range.

How old is the battery?

Most are warrenty for 24,48 or 96 months.

====
Fuel pump motor portion will ran forever. But the plastic diaphragm will give out in a hot day.

Do a fuel injector pressure test. Below 40 pis is trouble.

Fuel filter should be change if the fuel pump is at fault.


ALL more gas until it's over 1/2 tank and re-test.

A weak fuel pump will take more effort to pull fuel from a near empty tank.

Good luck,
