2000 dodge stratus 2.4l 1294 code

Replaced the head due to the water pump going out and my wife driving it untill it warped the head. Got it all back together and it idled a little funny rechecked the timing marks for the timing belt which I went ahead and replaced since I had it off. It was dead on. Well my wife went ahead and drove it for about 2 weeks now and it idles high (1500 rpms or so) and now I get a 1294 code on my scanner. Any suggestions?

How to check if a water pump is bad on a 2000 dodge grand catavan


Easy one. Check for water around the port hole, if it's leaking. It bad and needs to be replaced. I know. I have to replace my wife's water pump in her 2001 dodge caravan as well as a tranny ecm because it shorted out due to water leaking inside the unit. Hope this helps

Water pump frosed up on my 1997 dodge stratus 2.5


More likely a warped head. or a blown head gasket. Depends on how long the engine ran after the pump froze. Unlikely there is any valve damage.

.Ok I have a 01


It sounds to me like there is a problem with your Idle Speed Control solenoid/motor. (ISC) These can sometimes fail without turning on the Check Engine light. If the Check Engine light is coming on while you are driving, you should have the computer system checked out first. This will lead you to the proper fix.

My 2000 dodge stratus starting overheating every other week due to water pump failing. before it was replaced it got hot pulled over it started to shake then stulled. Replaced water pump did timing belt...


Most likely a cracked head or block '
When engines overheat the heads warp and something has to give. Even with just one overheating incident the heads can warp. You say you changed the timing belt, I think you mean the belt that runs the alternator and water pump. Big difference there. You might be able to save the engine with a big overhaul by pulling the heads and having them boiled out and pressure tested for cracks. It is also possible that the engine blocked cracked in which case you are looking at about $2000.00 to replace the engine. Oil on the plugs usually means water in the oil and oil in the water. If all those things are going on it looks like a disaster.

Wheres the water pump located in a dodge stratus year 1995


If it's like my wife's '97 stratus, the water pump is driven by the timing belt. That means you have to take a bunch of stuff off that side of the engine, including the engine mount to remove the timing components. How do I know this? A couple years ago, I replaced the timing belt and all associated pulleys and whatnot when the waterpump on that car failed. I did the whole job myself and did not have any leftover parts. Total cost on timing parts and water pump was about $250 at that time. I don't know what it would be now. Good luck to you.

It overheats


A new head gasket can't fixed warped heads. This engine must have seriously overheated at one time. Time for a new engine.
