For sure the timing is out, these cars are a mess to work on. Bring the car to someone who knows what he is doing. Good luck with that.

2006 Dodge Stratus Noises


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!

90 Dodge Dynasty 3.3 squealing serpentine belt


Sometimes when you have things changed out on an older car like that it will tend to show the next problem. Take the serpentine belt off and check all of the other pulleys. I am willing to bet that there is another one that is bad. Water pump, ac compressor etc.... The belt is trying to bind up that's why when the rpms get close to idle the car wants to stall

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII sometimes stalls when idling in gear


Do you have a "Check Engine" light?

Check the coils in each cylinder. At 140k the valve cover gaskets tend to break and oil will fill the coils causing misfires and stalling.

Need to install serpentine belt on 1992 geo storm.Is there a tension pulley and how do you loosen it to get new belt on?


Removal & Installation
  1. Except for the 1.8L engine, loosen the pivot and anchor bolts on 1 of the belt's components, then pivot the component sufficiently to release belt tension and remove belt.
  2. For the 1.8L engine, use a 3/8 in. breaker bar or ratchet to pivot the belt tensioner and release the serpentine drive belt, then remove the belt from the pulleys and the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the belt over the pulleys.
  2. For the 1.8L engine, pivot the tensioner and install the serpentine belt. Make sure the belt is properly aligned in all of the pulley grooves, then gently pivot the tensioner into contact with the belt. Do not allow the tensioner to snap into position or damage could occur.
  3. Except for the 1.8L engine, adjust the belt tension and tighten the accessory mounting bolts.

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!
