Question about 1997 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Dodge Stratus 2.4 4 door that i just bought about 2 months ago. When i bought it the car ran fine but needed a bit of fixing mainly the manifold, I had this replaced and when i got the car back it started to spit and sputter up a hill and black smoke came from the back end. I then took it back and fond out my car needed a new converter so i had it fixed, but yet i am having the same problem. I then took it back and had the spark plugs redone and the car ran a little better but still spit and sputtered. We found out that the air filter was no connected right. I then had that fixed and the car was running fine until i got it home and the Check engine light came on and my car cd player will not turn on now and my car still spits and sputters. Any clue on what could be worng?

I hate to be a **** and say this, but it's a Dodge. I had this same exact car, same year that you had for give years, and I hated it more than any vehicle I have ever owned. I don't know how any of them still exist. I'm sorry you're having these issues. Check spark plug wires too. Also, things that are commonly replaced in that car would be 02 censor, and the CD Player not working? Try to replace it with a factory one from a junk yard or something, see if it works...if not, it's probably what I like to call 'Dodgeitis'.

I have a 1997 Dodge Stratus and my power locks, power mirrors, radio and dome light all won't work. All of the fuses are fine. I have no idea where to start.


Without wire colors and schematics. It is hard to start anywhere. You need them. You need an OHM/VOLT meter also. Alldata and Mitchel have good wiring schematics. You get the stuff you need and post schematics, I will walk you though to fix them.

My girlfriends 2003 dodge stratus died suddenly. she tried to start it and it cranked over then stopped. good battery. what possible things should i check and start?`


Timing belt is most likely cause of sudden shut down. The Stratus has a noninterference engine so no damage occurs and the belt change is an easy fix.Open the area. Remove the belt tensioner at the 7 o'clock position compress it and put a pin in the small hole to hold it, Line up the timing marks put the new belt on and pull the pin. Some times it;s the bearing on the crank pulley that fails. If you change it be sure to put the flange to the front, thats what keeps the belt from coming off.

Car running hot, clicking noise in dash when turn the heater on


Thermostate goes bad (it might be placed it reverse way) or gatting stuck not opening. Engine might die it you wont have it checked ASAP. Also if you bought an aftermarket cap (not for GM) it might cause the ptoblem with coolant pressure. Check that it says for how much psi.
Hope that helps
Good Luck

Goes in reverse but dont move. in drive only goes 10mrh.


I think you need to bring that thing to a transmission shop. it is a bit surprising that a 5 y'old car would have a bad trans but maybe a transmission shop can save it. GL

Crankshaft seal blows out 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..
