SOURCE: 2002 dodge stratus will not start

i had the same problem on thursday. luckily for you this is a non-interference engine. they call it. that means the valves revert back to netural positioning when the belt snaps. youre car did the same exact thing as mine. it is a pain in the *** to change though. you gotta take the engine just about halfway out and go up and down, up and down with a jack underneath the oilpan to position it to get to all of the screws and bolts and ****. if you are not mechanically inclined, have a friend do it or pay a shop. the shop will cost you though, im pretty sure a couple weeks pay. i recommend getting rid of your stratus, i use to love them till i had to start working on mine all the time and they are such **** built cars its not funny. i take a door panel off and **** falls apart, its stuff like that that makes me hate mine. hope this helped, have a good day!

SOURCE: replacing serpentine belt 2002 dodge stratus

Did this on my 2002 Stratus 2.4L. I agree with other poster, you do have to remove the passenger tire and wheel wall to do it, but the tensioner travels clockwise.
Note: I offer this solely as a description of how I accomplished the task on my vehicle. It should not be taken as me advising anyone else in any way on how or whether they manage to repair their own vehicles.

1) Engaged parking brake, loosened lugs on passenger front tire.
2) Jacked-up and placed jack-stand.
3) Removed piece of black under-carriage which surrounds the oil filter and attaches to front bumper. There are at least 10 plastic push-pins to remove and I managed to destroy half of them in the process.
4) Positoned belt over lower pulleys and tensioner (as best as possible) then used a bungee to hold the top end of belt up while I worked under the car.
5) Used a 3/8 ratchet and inserted into square hole attached to the tensioner, disengaged the tensioner (moves clockwise) then used a brace to keep the ratchet handle in that position.
6) From top, removed bungee and finished placing belt over alternator, checked the position of entire belt, reengaged the tensioner, and replaced wall and wheel.

SOURCE: location of thermostat on 2002 dodge stratus 2.7 eng.

The thermostat on this car is located on the passenger side lower Engine block. Follow the lower radiator hose and it will lead you right to it. The Wheel and splash guarding need to be removed as well as the Alternator to gain access to the housing bolts. It about a 3 hour job to replace thermostat.

1998 Stratus, 5 spd manual, has a fuel smell after running for a bit, don't see any fuel leaks, where should I look next?


You in most cases never see any leak, the gas evaporates before it hit the ground, so put the car on a car lift and look for the stains that gasoline leaves when it runs down from a leak.

Overheating dodge stratus


Do a Compression Test on the Engine and see if you have a Blown Head Gasket. Chances are that is what is causing the Overflow... Exhaust Pressure is getting into the Cooling system

Gas/oil smell coming in through heater


there is a opening somewhere under your hood in the area of the blower motor casing that is causing the smell. it is highly unlikely but possible that you have an oil leak but i dont think you have a gas leak. get it checked anyway to be safe. good luck

1995 dodge stratus smells like something burning, can't find any leaks. Smoke at back of motor. Temp gauge goes half way when I smell it. It never runs hot. What can this be???


sounds like oil leaking on the exhaust, this can be engine oil or power steering fluid, have the car put up in the air and checked, this can cause a fire if not repaired.

2002 dodge stratus tries to die while idling


indicates a vacuum leak
will not be a muffler problem but if the flex section of the exhaust pipe at the manifold is cracked that will affect the heated oxygen sensor reports and that may contribute to the problem

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..
