Hi

Likely one of 2 things

Try the MAF sensor firs, the air mass sensor that measures the right fuel to air mixture, when the go the car chokes on it's fuel or air.

Secondly the EGR valve, you normally would see some power loss though weeks before this would fail, also both of these parts can be cleaned and often work a good while longer, use only carburetter cleaner and do not dry the part after spraying alow to dry naturally normally 5 minutes, if you need more info get back to me

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.

Why would a 2000 Stratus rough idle then die?


if now it won`t start it could be a spark(ignition)problem, check for spark at the plug. you should check for a code in the pcm this may help, not all codes set the check engine light. could also be a bad fuel pressure problem.

Honda accord ex 2001 check engine light suddenly came on, car started to idle roughly


If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring.
If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.

I changed the oil and air filter on my 2002 Dodge Stratus. Also replaced spark plugs but it still idles rough while in gear.


sparkplug wires are a very common cause of misfires creating rough idling. as they age they tend to leak, meaning the soark jumps out of the casing to a point one the engine its not supposed to. Start there and if u have a check engine light see whats thats on for, its free at most autozones.

Engine light on dodge3.8 engine runs rough and idles slow 2001 dodge van


If you want to do it by yourself, I strongly recommend you to buy a manual book because there is a built-in self dianostic Check Engine light codes. And how to do it, just insert the key into the ignition and do it three times, Turn On and Off the switch but don't start the engine, and you will see the check engine blinking. Count the blink and start with 1-2 blinks, the next blink is to tells you where is the problem and it will end to 5-5 blinks.(BLINK is the CODE) and you could check in the book. If you know somebody has an OBDII Scan/Diag.,thats will be easy. ok
