2000 Dodge Stratus, had a leakage in the fuel line, in June 2009 and had it repaired, than transmission was going out, needed a new engine, car wouldn't go past 50mph without jerking and still was a gas-hogger, cost more to fix the car so had to have it salvaged couldn't afford the repairs, and my friend also had a Dodge Stratus same year and had the same problem I did and she also had to salvaged her car.

My spark plug just popped out of the socket while I was driving and it stripped the threads, this is the second time this happened to me. The first time I thought that the plug was not installed properly on cylinder #2, this time it happened on cylinder #3. I'm afraid that this could cause an engine fire due to the vehicle still spraying the gas into the cylinder and the spark plug will still fire igniting the fumes.
