What could cause my 2003 Dodge Stratus to "chug out" like its out of gas while driving? It has gas and will start back up but only run for a minute before "chugging out".

Is the check engine light on or flashing? If so have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Most auto parts stores will do it for free. Post the codes and we can help further. Also, if your Stratus has over 100,000 miles on it you're due for a tune up. Try that first. HTH. -Jim
