1998 Dodge Stratus Q&A

1998 Dodge Stratus Question: Is my fuel pump going out?

How do I know if my fuel pump is going out? I tried to turn my car on after I put fuel in it and it wouldn't start. It sounded like it wanted to start, but didn't. I could smell gas as I tried to start my car. Someone came up banged on my fuel tank and it started right up. -
Answer 1
