#59 of 68 2001 dodge stratus se idle problem!
Dec 20, 2011 (3:58 pm)
4 cylinder automatic SOHC stratus has a horrible idle problem. I read something about an idle air control valve & carbon build up...& cleaning it out my car should idle normal again. I'm not sure if its more severe than that because my car idles at 500 rpm, & constantly acts like its stuck between gears....help!

Will not stay in idle long enough to switch into gear before dying. Used to do this on first start up of day but now doing it even after warmed up.

I have a 1999 Stratus as a standby but lately the engine cuts out without any apparent cause. I've replaced the fuel pump, the computer and a couple of sensors but after I drive it for a half hour, it just stops and I have to wait an hour before it will restart again. It seems like something happens when the motor gets warmed up, but it doesn't overheat, either. A lot of people seem to have this same problem but who has the solution.

Just replaced timing belt on a 2003 DOHC Sedan, Timing is dead on, have spark and compression but cranks like no spark plugs are in it. How do I find out if this is an interference engine?
