2006 Dodge Stratus Noises

06 Stratus, When Idling it sounds likemetal clanking under the hood, when first accelerating it sounds like rattling/shaking noise but then stops, I notice this noise more often when I turn on my heat or a/c, also when idling my car sounds like it wants to stall but won't, Can someone please tell me what could possibly causing this? I have been told that the "metal noise is a bushing in a pulley going bad"? Could this be correct? I have just replaced at 130k miles, the timing belt, serpentine belt, water pump, thermostat, alternator, new head gasket, spark plugs and wires, new valve rings, new camshaft sensor, new crank shaft sensor, new muffler and also had a flush done on both the transmission and radiator and still don't know what could be causing this "metal" noise?? Any help on this would be appreciated

It sounds like you have a new old car!!! Noises could be so many things, but since you mentioned you had a muffler replaced, my first suggestion would be the exhaust pipe or new muffler is too close to a frame or out of line. Put car up high enough to where you can roll all around the undercarriage. Start the car and let it idle while you roll around looking and listening, and you will have a 90% chance of isolating your annoying rattle. Good luck!

SOURCE: Heat blows cold when car is idling

You have an air pocket in the cooling system. To bled it out you will have to park vehicle on an incline or jack up the front end untill the radiator cap is higher than the heater core. The remove radiator cap and run engine until warm then hold rpm to about 1200 rpm's and top off coolant level until you have no more bubbles.

SOURCE: car stalling out

I just went through this. It's your Idle Air Control Valve probably going out. It's next to the throttle body right on top. Two bolts and a wire. Be sure to unplug negative side of battery before changing to get rid of that pesky check engine light! best of luck!

SOURCE: 1997 ford escort 2.0L engine

try this,wearing rubber gloves(cos its hot)undo the topmost hot hose clip and expell any air trapped.also use a hotwire to check
electric fan(s) if fitted.if they run it aint them.do they operate when idling and hot,if not then its the sensor.or if you have a viscous fan is that working.....when hot you will feel a resistance to turning by hand when the engine is stopped..another telltail that the thermostat is gone is,does the guage go down when you turn the fan on full heat for the interior??...cant think of anything else.....

Accelleration noises of the magnitude you descibe makes me think the engines crank shaft bearings have gone. Has the oil pressure light come on recently and what's the oil level like.
Without being there to hear it, it's very difficult to diagnose. You should detect noises and rattle if you rev it when in neutral if it is the engine. If the engine is smooth in neutral and the oil is good you may have a bad diff or cv joint

My 2004 Dodge Stratus Makes a Whining/Squealing Noise When Idling


With your Stratus idling, look under the hood. You should be able to find the source of the noise. It could be the belt or something driven by the belt

06 DODGE STRATUS WINDOWS INOP, NO POWER TO FUSE OR CIRCUIT BREAKER


If no power to the fuse panel for that fuse and circuit breaker, you may have a maxi-fuse burnt out in the power distribution box by or near the battery. Check all your fuses under the hood.

My front end of my 06 dodge stratus shakes during acceleration and calms down when I set the cruise control. It starts about 35mph.


Aside from the usual rotating tires to different
locations & balancing ,in case a wheel weight fell off,
you have to check motor & transaxle mounts & front
CV drive axle joints

Assuming you have no real obvious worn ball joints

These issues exist simply because someone just has
to get under the car & start to really apply their skills
& find the problem

If you don't do your own work, you are just sold any number of
services & no effort is put forth to help with the real shaking
issues etc
