Sounds like the head gasket is going bad, does the engine sound very rough when driving? The head gasket kit cost roughly $120 and labor can exceed $1000. Mines a 2000 and is leaking small amounts of oil. This engine is very prone to various leaks. Honeslty unless you know for a fact that everything else on the car is in working condition i would get rid of it
My advice to anyone else is to use synthetic oil and engine sealant additives. Also the transmission sensor is known to go bad on this car.

Yes you put key in the ignition turn key to on (when Dash lights come on ) then back one notch to off then on ,off and on and stop there and code should show on dash where Odometer is (like P0305 )

My stratus turns over but wont start. the odometer reads 250000 miles but we aren't sure if its the original or not. In the past year (since i got the car) we have put over $1500 worth of work into it. I know it needs a new computer and a valve cover gasket (is that right? or is valve gasket cover?), but don't know if either of those would keep it from starting. Everything turns on, the displays, lights, radio, etc. When I turn the key it just cranks and cranks... any ideas?

I have a 1997 Stratus with a 2.4 DOHC that won't run after it rains outside. I have recently had to replace the fuel filter, ignition coil and fuel pressure sensor. REALLY need some help on this one....

#59 of 69 2001 dodge stratus se idle problem!
Dec 20, 2011 (2:58 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.
