2002 Dodge Stratus Q&A

2002 Dodge Stratus Question: car dies at red lights

My stratus goes dead at red lights, sputters while Im driving and also the rpm s go up and down could this be the fuel filter -
Answer 1
Your concern is unlikely to be a fuel filter issue. It is more likely to be a base fuel pressure issue (fuel pump?) or air flow issue. You could be getting far too much air into the engine from a vacuum leak, an air intake leak, or a stuck idle valve. -

It was the EGR sensor it cost 175 at the shop -
