It sounds like the engine is out of time.
Check timing to see if the engine is firing when number 1 is on top dead center.

My 2001 Dodge Statues Coupe RT.has random mis fires. I have replaced bank 1 o2 sensors but it still mis fires as I give it gas to accelerate. Your thoughts? Steve

O2 sensors won't make misfires they only monitor air in the emissions if you have a random misfire it's most likely gonna be your coil pack or a cam pos sensor the cam sensor detects the location of the cam and tell the pcm and it tells the coil to fire your are getting O2 codes cause it detects unburned fuel it the exhaust

What's your question? Replaced timing belt on 2001 dodge stratus 2.4 liter and still wont start

Have you checked for spark on a plug wire with the engine cranking? If no spark, the problem is in the ignition system- the ignition coils, the ignition control module, the plug wires and plugs, the crankshaft position sensor, and the PCM-all are parts of the ignition system. Don't replace without testing- it will save you money.

Also check the fuel pressure at the engine, or at least verify the fuel pump is getting gas up to the engine. If you turn the key to on, not start, the fuel pump should turn on for 2 seconds to put pressure in the line and in the fuel rail where the fuel injectors are. Do you see a valve on the fuel rail, it may have a cap screwed on it. This is the test port to hook up a fuel pressure gauge and check fuel pressure. Autozone and others loan or rent fuel pressure gauges.

Stratus wont start

Do you get a code from OBDII? That should clue you to the problem, if you do. Does that one have a fuel return from the fuel rail? If not, you may have to bleed the fuel rail. Otherwise... it sounds like your injectors aren't firing. Has it had old bad gasoline in it?

I change the spark pulgs on a 2000 dodge staurts cuz it wont start and it still dont start

could be several things fuelpump not coming on or injectors not firing,no spark you will need to check these things to see which is not happening check all connections at battery and fuses in the distribution center ,after this check spark stck an old plug on a plug wire lay it against a metal surface an crank the engine briefly to see if there is spark if so check for fuel on the fuel rail there is a shrader valve looks like the same as a tire air valve see if fuel comes out be very carefull when doing this you can start a fire it is recommended that you get a pressure tester an hook it to this port don't just push the valve gas can spray and cause you and your vechicle very serious damage.if no fuel then check pump relay if good then probably a bad pump if no spark possible cranksensor or bad coil you will need to have someone who has testing equip for this

2002 dodge stratus suddenly became hard to start. Switched windshield wiper relay with the fuel pump relay. Seemed to work then after sitting over night problem returned. Showed P0171 and P0174 codes....

Get a can of spray starting fluid and see if the engine starts up and dies right out, if so you have lost the injectors, either the PCM is fault (unlikely) or the power circuit to the injectors from the injector fuse is defective due to a defective wiring issue.

Dodge stratus will crank but wont start

It could several reasons why it will not start one could be bad or no fuel pressure do you hear the fuel pump running when you turn the key to the on position? (2) could be a bad crank position sensor(3) could be a bad cam position sensor(4)could be a bad coil (no spark)(5)could be a bad throttle position sensor. As you can see its not a cut and dry problem but if you can have some one run a diagnostic on the car autozone will do it for free I no it wont start but you may have to have it towed or have some one run those checks mentioned above.

2000 dodge stratus turns but wont start, checked timing belt, fuel pump distributer and fuses. Any other suggestions?

You need to check to see if it's a fuel problem or an electrical problem. Is there adequate spark at the plugs? If so, check for fuel problems. Clogged filter, bad fuel pump, bad gas.. Get car scanned for codes at most parts stores for free. Could be a CPS crank position sensor or cam position sensor. If crank sensor is bad, will not start. Get codes checked first.
