Does it shake all the time, or only when you use the brakes ?
A slow speed shake without using the brakes is most often a bad tire. The alignment only affects how the car steers.

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Stratus Squeaks

I would check the lower control arm bushings and sway bar bushings for the squeak,and the shaken when breaking means you have warped rotors,if it shakes in the steering wheel its the frt,if the whole car shakes then it usaaly means it is in the rear rotorsor drums.

SOURCE: Jerks while applying brakes

It sound s reasonable. Essentially besides probably having worn brake pads,the brake rotors are probably warped giving you that brake pulsation . .Beware that the rear brakes can also cause pulsation, so be sure a thorough diagnosis is performed

SOURCE: I have a 98 dodge stratus, are the rear breaks rotors or disc?

You do not require a mechanic to do this job. lst remove any wheel front or back. You probably have front disk and drum on the back.
To remove the rotor, you will see two bolts holding brake capalier on the rotor. Remove these and pry the capalier from the rotor. Now you need to remove the pads. Simple to remove, but when replacing you need a 6 inch c clamp to force the pressure mechanism back into the rotor in order to replace the pads. Remove the rotors and have them researfaced any any machine shop. Cost around $10 per rotor. Pick you up some antisizing compound and high temp grease. Follow instructions on the label. Now remove a back wheel, if you do not see a rotor then its a drum. To remove a drum you will need a several tools to replace the drums. Purchase these at Harbor Freight or Sears. Much cheaper at Harbor freight. Now remove the other wheel and repair one wheel at a time, by checking back wsith the wheel that has not been disambled. Before replacing have the drums reserfaced. Now once the job is completed you need to tighten up the wheel by using the special tool which you purchased. Tighten a little at a time AND ONCE THE WHEEL becomes hard to turn back off a turn. Do the same thing to the other wheel. May take you all day to do the job. But it's the way I learned to do a brake job. Hope this is helpful.

Check engine light blinking car shaking, oil light on after a few miles from starting


May be low oil, low oil pressure (faulty oil pump) or a bad pressure switch. When your at highway speeds the pump, pumps faster & brings the oil to the right PSI. Try a thicker oil than called for, get the oil pressure checked,oil leaks? & get the switch ckd out.

Shakes, steering wheel hard to turn. RPM's at 2 when going 15mph.


Have you checked the power steering fluid? Do the belts squeel when you turn the steering wheel?
I know this might sound silly but are your air pressures in your tyres correct? Low air pressure will cause your steering to shake at speed and it will be hard to turn at low speed.
I hope this helps,
Scott.

Should there be a snap ring holding rotors in place on a 1999 dodge stratus?I get front end shaking at certain speeds.


Have the front end checked by a mechanic. The problem could be wheel balancing, front end alignment, broken tire belt or a number of related things. The rotors are held in place by the wheel lug nuts. Good luck!
