Avenger rides again... Without being a spazz!!! They replaced the crank
sensor (The part cost $95.00 wholesale ) Its been running without cutting off ever since.
The check engine light goes on and off for some reason though.
I felt like setting that car on fire all those times it cut off... on railroad tracks and at
stop lights, just at any random time without warning.
Hope you get your car purring like a kitten again and don't have to get that bus pass!!!!

Stay as far away from Dodge Avenger's as you can! They're nice looking cars but they have a numerous amount of gliches. The biggest problem is, when things go wrong you might end up taking it to a dealership 5,6, or 7 times before they finally get the problem fixed. But they'll charge you everytime as if they did something that worked. Dodges dont break down. It's easy to fix a car if it'll break down and stay down b/c when you know you've found the problem if you can get the car back up and running. The Avenger's do things such as you go outside and try to crank it up and get nothing, then maybe an hour later you try again and it run perfect. Makes it next to impossible to fix. Im currently driving a '95 Dodge Avenger that i've put $$$ into. Truthfully, I'd feel guilty if I sold mine for more than $500 b/c the car just has a bad history. Don't do it!!
#84 of 198 '95 Dodge Avenger, Intermitten No-starts
Oct 23, 2005 (10:36 pm)
I have a '95 Dodge Avenger that has intermittent no-starts. When it does not start, 90% of the time I'm able to get it to turn over by jumping the starter. I've been through 3 starters already and a battery. When it doesn't start, there's nothing at all. Meaning I turn the key and get absolutely nothing. I saw on a website that it could possibly be due to a damaged wire near the transaxle shift lever. Any other suggestions?

I bought 98 Avenger w/ 75 K last month,
and I've faced the problem of stalling for 2-3 weeks.
Finally, I went to mechanics to x-ray transmission.
If transmision is o.k, ask them to delete old data records.
The problem was fixed for my car.

Well I took my clunkin avenger back to the dealer and now they changed the crank sensor. Apparently these cars have 2 types of codes for the computer.
Hard codes send an engine light and soft codes make you blow are your money to find out the problem. So the crank sensor sends a soft code. The car hasn't stalled out yet and its been 1 day. So I'm happy there but the terd box has a horrible miss and when I stop or go real slow the idle drops. The dealership says there is nothing wrong with the car, it could be running like crap because it is getting old. OLD? OLD? I almost slapped the jerk. The car only has 118000.
Well I'm gonna through some good gas in her some lucas fuel injector cleaner, and I'm gonna take for a good rip on the highway. Hopefully that will help and if not it'll blow it up. Time for drastic measures.

Just wondering if you could help me understand what I'm faced with. I have a 96 ES Avenger 2.5, auto. Problem, it does not go into 1st gear. Starts out in second, under complete acceleration from start it goes into a neutral sense for a quick moment, then into second hard. I generally will squeak tires because the engine reved up before engaging second gear. Other than tha it runs down the road great. No slippage in any gear. Shifts fine up and down to other gears.
