2004 dodge stratus squeeling , heavy steering


the pump dies when the engine stalls or runs too slow.
so, the steering has nothing to do with that , unless the
pump seized, so drop the belt and start car.
if car will not start, that is a no start question
post it as, cranks fast but will not start. and what engine option
some have diesel.

How do you change a power steering belt


Loosen the bolts that attach the power steering pump to the bracket. then push the pump down. this should make the belt loose enough to get off. then put the new belt on. take a pry bar and stick between the motor and the power steering pump through the top. push on the pry bar to raise the power steering pump and tighten the belt. while pushing on the pry bar to keep tension on the belt tighten the bolts that you loosened and you've changed your power steering belt. this can be done by one person, but it's a lot easier with two.

How do you tighten the power steering belt on 2000 Dodge Stratus V6, is there a tensioner?


There is 3 bolts on power steering pump that should be loosed but not removed. 2 on the bottom and one on the top that will have to be loosened from under the car. there is a square shaped hole on the power steering pump brace that a breaker bar is inserted and belt tightened, hold to tight position and tighten the 3 bolts back down

We just bought the car. the lady said a mechanic told her it was the power steering belt. it is a 1998 dodge stratus. how do we remove the belt and replace it?


You should have a repair manual. Basically you should
raise the car and support it on jack stands, remove the
drive belts splash shield, loosen the power steering pump
pivot and locking bolts, you should be able to move the
pump to loosen belt for removal and replacement. There
should be a square hole on the pump that accepts a 1/2
inch drive breaker bar to pull back on the pump to tension
the belt before you lock the pump down.

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.

Power steering


it sounds like you've got a really bad leak in a hose/pump/reservoir

plus, power steering fluid isn't the greatest for cleaning the engine with ;)

Keep an eye on the serpentine belt, b/c the leaking fluid might eat it up and cause premature failure.
