Car cranks won't start

Asked by Feb 10, 2017 at 11:30 AM about the 1995 Dodge Stratus 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 1995 dodge stratus 2.4L. Was driving
car quit running. Engine still turns over but
won't start. While cranking it's like it tries to
back fire. Any ideals?

1 Answer


Possible fuel issue, should start by checking the fuel pressure, May be a bad fuel regulator or bad fuel pump, It back fires so I assume there is spark but you may want to look at it to make sure it has a nice white/blueish spark. Also look for vacuum leaks.
