Question about 1997 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

The dual fans in the engine are not running.

I just bought a used 97 Dodge Stratus and noticed that the dual fans under the hood were not running. Someone said that they only run when the engine gets hot. Is this true?

Yes, they should only run when the engine gets to a certain temperature. If they still fail to operate then you may want to check your fuses and relays both inside the car and in the engine bay to make sure they are all good.

I have a 2005 dodge stratus that when i turn off the key there is a sound of a fan or motor running. The sound is coming from the top of the engine, its not the electric radiator fan

if you have a certain model of stratus there is a fan under the intake on the 2.4 engine. this fan blows air into the exhaust for emissions purposes. the circuit on these fans have a problem with not shutting off. i believe the dodge dealer installs a resister in this circuit to make it shut off. it can make your battery go dead if it dosnt shut off

How do you check engine cooling fan relay

thumb.jpghere is your cooling system electrical wiring diagram.
use a digital volt ohm meter to check for power at relays and be sure to check fan operation (turn car on and fans and poke with a stick if fan starts operating and then shuts off it is drawing to much power and needs to be replaced. if blades will not turn fan is locked up and needs to be replaced. do not run engine for too long without proper functionong cooling system you could cause sever engine damage i.e. headgasket or cracked block. also be sure the radiator has plenty of coolant and is functioning normally hope this helps

I have a 2004 dodge stratus 2.7 flex fuel engine that just killed on me, it had smoke coming from right hand side under hood. wasnt running hot but put coolant in anyway, first it would try to roll ov

When you say right hand, is that driver or passsenger side? Some people use sides from front and some from behind the wheel. Do you see any oil leakage on the engine from around the seal? Was it making any noise before it died?

Wiring diagram

usually a recurring blown fuse has to do with excessive resistance on whatever that particular fuse controls.
I had that happen a few times on a car that I bought. the sway bar was bent into the radiatior fan just far enough to put pressure on the fan blades.

Do a Compression Test on the Engine and see if you have a Blown Head Gasket. Chances are that is what is causing the Overflow... Exhaust Pressure is getting into the Cooling system

The dual fans in the engine always running on my 97 dodge stratus.

on some cars they have a dual speed fan system where the fans are always on and they spin faster when necessary; if you have a/c and are using the defrost mode, that automatically turns on the a/c compressor and the fans as well; if your computer doesn't see the temperature sensor it will turn on the fans by default; and finally it could be a stuck relay.

2004 Dodge Stratus A/C Fan Relay Switch

ok first the fan relay should be located inside the elecrical box. this is usually located on the drivers side under the hood. next even you have only one speed when you turn the switch it's because the reostat is bad it is located in the fan motor housing. hope this helps.
