SOURCE: Tie rod ends on 05 dodge durango

Hi there.... Tie rod ends are not hard to do at all. Take the tire off, you'll see the tie rod end. Take the nut off the end on the spindle side and lossen the nut at the other end. With a hammer, hit the section that the spindle end is inserted to until it pops out. Then unscrew the tie rod. Make sure you count how many turns it takes to remove the old tie rod end..... screw the new one in the same amount of turns that it took the old one to come off. this way you will have it close to what the old one was at. You will have to get a wheel alignment afterwards in order to have it all set up. Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: Cant find transmission filter on 2003 Dodge stratus Coupe.

The filter is inside the transmission. You need to take the pan off the bottom then you can replace the filter and the pan gasket.

My 2005 dodge stratus coupe sxt will not idol why


You need to proof read your message. Look for a vacuum hose off. Let someone start it you with the hood up listen for a hissing sound. Most times they come lose when you've had work done in the area of the motor. If that is not the fault check for a code with the ECM.

Car won't start 2003 Dodge Stratus sxt coupe cranks but won't start what could b the problem? I tried spraying starting fluid in the air system but it still won't start!


i would check and see if spark pluges are firing. you can take one out and plug into spark plug wire then let the bottom of the plug sit on engine and get someone to try to start while you look at the plug to see if there is any fire. if you have no fire or fuel it would be the crankshaft sencer. it could be the timing belt but the motor would sound different turning over then it used to.

How to replace the tie rod end


Tie rod ends are replaceable, whether the steering system is rack and pinion or parallelogram steering system.
f42-02.gif Parallelogram steering system mounts. Figure A - behind front suspension; and Figure B - ahead of front suspension. f42-04.gif A rack and pinion steering system. Tie rod ends are threaded to provide a means of adjusting toe. When a tie rod is replaced, measure the old tie rod assembly before disassembling it. An approximate toe-in adjustment can be made to the new one prior to installation. When removing the old tie rod end, count the number of turns it takes to remove it. Then, turn the new tie rod end onto its threads the same number of turns.
Some vehicles have tie rods that appear to be the same on both ends. The difference is in the threads. One end has left hand threads and the other has right hand threads. It is possible to install the entire shaft backwards (which will work). Mark the tie rod to identify the inner or ourter end before removing it.
Before tightening tie rod clamps, check to see that they are in good condition and are positioned properly so they can be clamped tightly. Before doing a front end adjustment, spray penetrating oil on the threads of the tie rods. Do this during the steering linkage inspection so the lubricant has time to soak in.

Torque specs. for replacing tie rod end on dodge stratus, replacement rod came with slotted nut and cotter pin


Hello
Welcome!
The torque spec for the tyrod ends are 45 foot pounds.

• Unlock the steering wheel before jacking up the vehicle. This allows the Steering linkage to be moved for the best possible access to the ends' fasteners by grabbing one of the axle hubs
• Secure the vehicle on jackstands before removing the wheels.
• Buy name-brand tie-rod ends. Saving a few dollars on cheaply made parts isn't worth the risk.
• Mark the tie-rod ends' positions on their threaded adjusters before removing the old ends. This way, the new ends can be screwed in to approximately the same position as the old ones to get wheel allimint in the ballpark.
• Have the vehicle professionally aligned afterward, especially if the steering wheel isn't centered or the vehicle pulls one direction when attempting to drive straight.

Signs your haveing probloms with the tyrod ends

• Front-end shimmy, shake or vibration.
• Abnormal front-end noise.
• Hard steering.
•steering wheel doesn't return to center properly.
• Vehicle wanders.
• Steering feels unstable, loose or has excessive play.
