Car stalls when starting and doesn't start most of the time.
I bought a '02 dodge stratus in February of
this year. Car was shutting off when I drove
it and the previous owner said it needed a
new battery. Bought the new battery and
drove it home. A couple weeks later it
started running hot on me and now barely
cranks up. Anyone have some experience
with a stratus and can give me a little
insight on what the problem could be??
Also had timing belt, thermostat and water pump replaced
Have a compression check done on each cylinder and possible a test to see if there exhaust escaping into the coolant, and look for any steam or white smoke from the tail pipe. Check to make sure when it is hot that the cooling fans are working fine. You may need head or intake gaskets.
