perhaps the fuel filter is choked...check your fuel pressure at the fuel rail...if my suspicions are correct you are getting starved of fuel...perhaps the fuel pump is weak?~ think your fuel system should be checked~

why would it restart and run perfect evrytime after it sits for 10-15 min tho?


ya...acts like a "sponge" for fuel...when pressure is released...let's go it's stored fuel~ 10-15 is long enough for the fuel to bleed back will notice the condition of your fuel filter~ have to change that is routine service...and it sounds like it's NEVER been done~ there are a lot of choices...must chose what you've got gws_rd=ssl#q=2001+Dodge+Stratus+SE+fuel+filter&tbm=shop
