Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
One morning my car would not start or turn over. so we towed it to a auto mechanic shop where they ran the diagnostic test on it and found that it was the battery. so they replaced it. but now only 13 days later i have the same problem that i had before and a friend said it might be the alternator. how can i replace the alternator by myself because i dont have the money for a shop.
Hope this helps. I just changed mine (98 Stratus) and you have to remove the plastic radiator overflow reservoir. there is a nut on the shock tower and one on the fender well almost hidden by the windshield fluid reservoir. the alternator slides out to the left and up through where the radiator reservoir was. If you have A/C , you have to pull up on those A/C lines a LITTLE bit.

To adjust the belt tension, leave the pivot and adjusting arms loose. Tighten the belt to the point where you can press it with your finger about a half inch.
