The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to a parts store or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.

If the check engine light is blinking on your 2005 Dodge Stratus, you most likely have a sensor that is damaged or requires replacement. You can check this by accessing the diagnostic computer at the dealership.

It could be (a) misfiring cylinder(s). Check the condition of your plugs and wires. Also, check if your engine mounts are not worn.
