Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus

2 Answers

I have a 2002 dodge stratus. I bought it in the

I have a 2002 dodge stratus. I bought it in the spring of this year. Now that the weather is getting colder in evenings here. I'm talking 30's and 40's. If i leave it in the driveway all night then it won't start in the mornings. The engine won't turn over. I thought it might be the starter so i put a new one on it. The battery and alternator check out fine. If I leave it in the garage at night then it will start in the mornings so it is definitely a problem with the colder weather. But it really isnt that cold here yet. Any ideas?

It sounds like either the battery is bad or the terminals are corroded and not allowing for a good connection which would cause a click. There also could corroded body ground which should T off the battery connection and bold directly to the body of the car. I would clean up terminals and check ground connections. Good Luck

Will a 2004 2.7 litre motor out of a Dodge Stratus run and work in a 2002 Chrylser Sebring 2.7? both have sameengine codes


I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup so I have had some experiences (mostly bad) with Dodge electronic ignition systems.
I have no specific knowledge about a Sebring or Stratus but as someone who has been working on cars and trucks for the better part of 40 years I'll make a guess that the computer control module in the Sebring is different than the CCM in a Stratus that is a two year newer model. Since you are dealing with engines from 2 different year models there were likely some (maybe minor) changes to the electronic ignition system over the two years. If the wiring harness connectors for the CCM in the Sebring and Stratus are identical I would move the CCM from the Stratus into the Sebring and see if the Stratus engine will then fire. Some questions to consider:
1. Was the Stratus engine running OK before you removed it from the Dodge?
2. Are you sure all electrical connections are correct (and complete) after installing the Dodge engine in the Sebring?

If the pump isn't leaking and you can see water flowing in the radiator with the cap off, the pump is probably OK. Can you figure out where the coolant leaked out?

There are brake spring tools that can be found at your auto parts store. I would use a screwdriver and long nose pliers when the proper tool wasn't available.

Replacing battery under wheel well??


They say you do not have to remove the wheel, but I tried and had no luck so I just went ahead and removed the wheel, it gives you more room to work with when pulling the old battery out and putting a new one in.
