SOURCE: Dodge stratus R/T 2002 antifreeze problem(antifreeze coming out the cap)

First the "service engine soon" light is a manufacturer installed reminder for you to get an oil change or other pre-determined maintenance service done. It is different than the "check engine" light which indicates a sensor malfunction. Secondly, when the engine is cold the thermostat is closed and the antifreeze or coolant is not circulating. The cooling system is a closed system and the tank that the cap is on is not an overflow tank but rather an expansion tank. This tank allows for the expanding coolant that is now hot to leave the engine coolant jackets, that won't expand, into a tank that can expand slightly. When your engine got to normal operating temp., aka.. hot, the thermostat opened allowing coolant to circulate and fill the expansion tank probably over flowing with the cap off. This is a normal operation for your car.

SOURCE: automatic transmission frozen

U can't shift it out of park because the battery is dead, park is locked until the brak lights are activated (no power no lights), this 12 volt brak light signal un-locks the park solenoid.

SOURCE: replace water pump cost

the time to replace is 3.8 hours. multiply this by the shop flat rate and this will give you a labor rate. call some local parts houses to find the price on the pump, dodge gets around 98dollars hope this helps, depending on when you last changed the timing belt you ight want consider doing this at this time as it has to come off to change the water pump. this is an interference engige if the belt breaks it will damage the valves, you should only have to pay for the belt. hope this helps if not ghet back tome and i'll try to help you further. please rate my fix, as i strive to the best Thanks Ray

SOURCE: need to change water pump on 97 dodge stratus 2.5

My condolences. It's located on the passenger end of the engine, under the timing covers. You have to remove the timing belt to replace it. It's a knuckle-busting job; no room to work in there, and you've got to remove a LOT of parts just to get to it. My '96 also had a corroded feed tube, so I ended up having to take apart just about the entire other end of the engine as well! If you can afford it, it's well worth leaving that job to a professional, especially if you haven't done a timing belt before.
BTW, if you do go ahead with it, here's a hint that I found the hard way. Take off the intake manifold first - it'll save you hours of trying to remove the power steering bracket bolts! (That's not as frivolous as it might sound - you have to remove the manifold just to change the spark plugs on that car!)

SOURCE: replace water pump on 2004 Dodge Stratus 2.4L DOHC

First, I'd recommend you buy a manual, because the water pump is internally mounted, driven by the timing belt. You will also need a puller to remove the crankshaft pulley. You can usually rent/borrow this from the same place you bought the manual. The manual will also show you how to properly install the timing belt and compress the tensioner.
You will need to drain the cooling system, raise the car (safely), remove the right tire, right inner fender, right engine mount (aka front mount), accessory drive belts, timing belt cover, timing belt and tensioner (which needs to be recompressed correctly), and now you are at the water pump. Since the timing belt has to be removed, you should also replace it.

Is there a certain type of antifreeze I need to use for my 2003 Dodge Stratus


Many believe that most brands will give you very similar protection. What is very important is that you are aware not to use full strength anti-freeze. You can buy pre-mixed if you don't want to mix the anti-freeze and water yourself.
Most recommend about 50% anti-freeze, and 50% water. be sure to check the instructions on the bottle.

I hope this helps you.

My 2003 sunfire wont start. Tried charging the battery, still wont start. (It's really cold outside) It does have command start (could that be the problem?)


If it is turning over but not starting, I would put it in a warm garage and let it thaw out for awhile or out gasline antifreeze in the gas tank and let sit for couple of hours turning the key on periodically to pump gas into libes with the deicer because it sounds like a frozen gas line. Let me know if we need to go further

what else do you expect from a unskilled person ,they dont know the difference between the steering wheel and the spare wheel .Now without my head under the bonnet i couldnt tell you from a description like this ,but jumping a tooth means the timing belt has jumped a tooth on the belt ,but without looking i cannot say but i would hazard a guess and say the starter motor has made a noise which is what you heard , But if the engine was frozen because of no antifreeze then the water pump is driven by the timing belt ,frozen pump ,stripped timing belt .??? get your self a nice humber hawk or vauxhall cresta

I have a 2003 Dodge stratus (2.4L), the car runs fine in the mornings, but later in the day, I'm smelling oil and the car idles rough and jerks, has cut off a couple of times, but after engine cools off,...


Your cooking the oil in the engine ( getting to hot/possible oil leak on top of engine). Check the front of the radiator for anything that will cause air not pass through the radiator.If you find any bugs/trash/or a build-up dust or dirt clean it out. Next check to see if the radiator and coolant recovery jug has any antifreeze in it. If not refill each to proper levels with a 50/50 mix antifreeze. Then if all is good run the car in the morning and as it is worming up put your hand on the upper radiator hose to feel if it is hot or cold. If the hose is hot and you can feel the antifreeze moving through the hose then the pump is working correctly. If not and the hose feels luke warm with no movement of fluid then the thermostat is stuck closed and will need to be replaced. Also you need to replace the engine coolant temperature sensor (ect) on engine. Hope this will help you.

Your coolant sensor may be stuck in advanced timing mode. Change it & the engine will start easy in cold & warm weather. The sensor is located near the thermostat housing. Remove the electrical connector & unscrew the sensor. Replace but do not over tighten, 5ft. lbs. Top off any antifreese loss. Good luck!
