Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
The first thing I can think of is to check and see if you are getting fuel to the engine. First I would check the main fuel line. It connects to the fuel injector assembly just beneath the throttle body, which is located on the driver's side of the intake manifold which is the large body of plastic on top of the engine. Where the fuel line connects, there is a small green plastic clip. If there are no obvious problems with the fuel line (disconnected, broken, etc..) then the next most likely problem would be the fuel pump, or more accurately the fuel pump relay. The relay can be found inside the fuse and relay center under the hood on the driver's side. Look on the lid of the fuse box to determine which relay controls the fuel pump (it will be clearly printed on the lid, in a diagram to show it's location). Remove it. <br />If you have a multi-tester, you can follow this guide to test the relay.<br /><br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPrE1ijfAeA&feature=channel<br /><br />If not, most new relays cost less than $6.00 at your local auto parts store.<br /><br />These are the two most likely causes for your engine not to try to fire. If neither of these resolve the problem, my next guess would be to check the spark plugs. Then I would check the ignition coils. <br /><br />Best of luck.
