Question about 2006 Dodge Stratus
2006 dodge stratus 2.4 engine keeps blowing out cranksheft seal causing a major oil leak
The fix is replacement of motor!! I have the same problem and have already paid $700 in repairs to fix seal just to find out that the seal is being knocked out by loose crank shaft..Car had 60000 miles when I bought it 4 months ago, from a dealership, and now it needs a motor replacement..I stiil owe $5000 on a car that is worth $0..Dodge did not give the 100000 mile warranty they love to advertise on TV for the '06 Stratus..They only gave 36000 warranty because they did not think it would last much longer..Will never buy Chrysler product again!! They do not stand behind what they sell or they would have 100000 mile warranty on all their cars..

Having same problem with my 99 Stratus 2.4L and after lots of research, it appears to be crankshaft end play that pushes the seal out causing it to leak. And by the sound of it, if the crankshaft has play in it, then it's likely damaged other engine parts connected to it. Meaning rods etc... etc... Change the engine or get rid of it like I am !

Buy a new car and NEVER buy a Dodge Stratus again. Around 30,000 miles, you WILL have this problem. We already paid this car off and 3 months later, this happens. It will cost 4700 dollars for a used engine, but it will just happen again anyway...
Get a new car before this happens to your car and makes for 06 Stratus worthless!
