Customer Question
Dodge Stratus just died...

Dodge Stratus just died while driving. Thought it was fuel pump and replaced it. Still wont start?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Dodge. The Dodge Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Driving car and it just died. I don't thing it is getting any spark.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes. I just dropped the fuel tank and installed a new pump. I try to do most of the work myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Changed fuel pump and relay. No luck.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Dodge Mechanic should be aware of about your Dodge?

Replaced Cam Shaft positioning sensor last week

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
