Excessive fuel pressure, noise coming from tank area of car,

Customer Question

Excessive fuel pressure, noise coming from tank area of car , trouble fueling keeps kicking off and when i stop and loosen cap the noise from tank area stops u can hear it depressurize, sudden surges or stalls on slowing and turning and just yesterday very harsh jerking and suttering and a loudslamming noise( maybe broken motor mount on that one) rattles like something gonna fall off. Cuts out n sputters up to about 45 then will take off fine. Check engine light was on steady one whole day then it flashed all day today. Its a dodge stratus 2004 2.7l
JA: Does the light stay on solid or does it flicker? Any noticeable performance problems lately?
Customer: Yes performance was slowly declining until yesterday when light vame on it became drastically worse. Yest light stayed on today it flashed. Back when the perf started to decline it started burning fuses to the fuel relay i believe? 8&10 maybe ill have to look for sure but thats stopped now.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yez
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?

Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. It sounds like there are few different things going on with your vehicle. Can I start by getting your VIN and the codes stored in the computer?

Thank you for that information. If you clear the codes, which code comes back first? Does the engine run rough? If so, at idle or under a load?
