Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Okay I have a 2002 Dodge stratus and recently the car just died out. So after gettin a tune up another problem occured where I had to replace the starter. Now with new spark plugs and a new starter the car wont crank, it turns over but nothing happens. A local mechanic told me that I need to get the car key recoded because when the starter went out it sent random codes to the computer......SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE!!!!

I don't think the key has anything to do with it. Spray a little staring fluid in the throttle body while someone tries to start it. if it fires off, spray a small amount in it to keep it running. if it stops you know you have an issue with a fuel filter / pump or fuel regulator. Main thing is to be sure the gas is getting up to the engine.

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:

This could also be caused by a failing ignition pack.

Make sure that a tune-up isn't the problem, such as spark plugs, fuel filters, then start with the fuel pump psi. Then the torque convertor in the transmission could be at fault.

will not be a muffler problem but if the flex section of the exhaust pipe at the manifold is cracked that will affect the heated oxygen sensor reports and that may contribute to the problem

Need the tool to take the crankshaft off of a 2002 Dodge Stratus


I think you mean the harmonic balancer, which is the pulley mounted at the front of the crankshaft. (You need to remove the engine and all of the pistons to remove the crankshaft itself.) Check your local parts store for a harmonic balancer puller -- I got one from NAPA for about $75 that allowed me to pull the balancer without removing the radiator/condenser.

Car dying out after spark plug change


Sounds like either wires are not connected properly, or need new set of wires. More likely wires are installed incorrectly. One other possibility is wrong plugs or installed improperly

2002 Dodge Stratus Spark plugs


the spark plugs are probably in the same place they've always been in...(sorry).

you probably have a cover over the motor and that will have to be removed to see where everything is.
