Re: battery for 98 Stratus
The light you speak of is actually indicating an issue with the charging system and is usually an indicator of a faulty alternator. However if your light flashes and doesn't remain lit it could be a sign of a bad connection in the charging system. If it only flashes once in a while you are better off to wait until it remains lit for a while. Simply because electrical diagnosis is very time consuming and the mechanic can spend hours looking and still not find a clear cause for your issue. And these wasted hours can cost you BIG. But keep in mind that when that light is lit your battery is not receiving a charge and will go dead and could leave you stranded. So don't stray too far from home until you can get this issue resolved hope this helps! and thanks for choosing FIX YA!

This often indicates that your brakes are worn and in need of replacement.
Most disk brake systems have a squealer that makes noise to remind you to have your brakes inspected when they near end-of-life.
Old and tired engine. 2.7, I would assume. Charge the battery and post the codes. Changing the valve seals only keeps it from smoking at start up. Burns the oil from the cylinders. If it smoked all the time it was the piston rings. Common on the 2.7 engines. Find another car.
the altenator will test fine although if they did not test with a voltmeter on the car reversing the voltmeters probes on the battery I would say the diode is at fault. when a diode goes bad and the battery is fully charged or new the voltage will look fine but the altenator will not charge as it should, a diode keeps the current from reversing which would be called a direct current as all cars have. if the diode is faulty the current will reverse becoming an altenating current a will not produce a charge to the battery
One thing to check is the micro switch on the brake pedal arm, I had the same problem.
For some reason the switch came loose and it wasn't being depressed.
All I had to do is re adjust it so it would depress the plunger on the switch when the brake was not applied and activate the switch when the brake pedal was depressed.
I set it to the sensitive side so when you barley tap the brake pedal it shuts off the cruise control.
The only thing that comes to mind for me is the battery indicator, indicating that there is possibly an issue with the battery or charging system. However, if you have your owners manual, it will tell you in there what exactly that symbol is for.
The automotive repair manuels that you can buy at the major part stores such as Autozone, Advance or ORiley's do a good job of describing how the heater core is removed. Most heater cores come out from under the dash, while a rare few are removed from the firewall.
One wonders why you are changing the heater core. Are you getting steam on the inside of your windshield? Usually the best indication your heater core is leaking, or are you getting no heat? In which case it make be duct doors.
