Question about Dodge Stratus

2 Answers

Noise in the front end of me 02/03 stratus. As soon as I take off it starts wining. At first I thought it was the transmission but when I put it in neutral while moving it continues to wine, It seems like its not shifting into OD but the tach is low. I think it is in the front end

I take off and it starts to wine, then it sounds like it is not shifting into gears but the tach says everything appears normal,I going 60 mph and put it in neutral and the wine continues.but engine idles down.No noise until I move forward. Checked P/S fluid and level is above high level

    Steve, I dont think its the serpentine belt that is more of a screech. This is a wine I think it's a cv joint since it doesnt sound like a pulled issue. It doesnt increase while still in park if I rev the engine and that would wheel bearing or control arm. thanks get back to you after I jack it up. PL

    Thanks I think its wheel bearings as well. Doesn't CV joints usually go click when you turn the corner?

Hi this could be many things so really i will go through stuff for you to check out , serpentine belt, when you say it is whining is it more of a squeal? if so this could be your problem, pulleys on front of engine, these are the things the serpentine belt runs around, run car and listen to them you might be able to pin point which one it is, wheel bearings, as you say it still does it when still in motion, try jacking up the front of your car, grab the top and bottom of either wheel and then push and pull if you get movement in the wheel that allot, your wheel bearing could be worn and will need replacing, test either side , if no movement, just spin the wheel as fast as you can and listen for a humming noise, as there is no weight on the wheel it will sound different than when there is, also when off the ground you can check the cv joints on the drive shafts, when you spin the wheel if they are warn you will hear them as well...hope that's enough for you to get started on

    hi again just thinking if the cv joints are warn they would make more of a click click noise rather than a whining noise...i think i would put my money on wheel bearings..

Is it possible that this noise could be power steering related? How is the fluid level for the PS?

    I just checked the P/S fluid and it is above the high level

    I'm not sure why the rejection, but I do have a solution after you provided me with more details (important details) for this driveability problem.

  • GetMeOttaHere May 31, 2010

    Of course CV njoints create noise, also wheel bearings if they are neglected over time. Mileage is an important glue to list when regarding a problem with any vehicle....geeezzzzzz.

My 1995 Dodge Stratus is making a noise coming from the front end


Sounds like it is time for some ball joints. There is no way to grease them, and when they start squeaking, it is time for replacement. Do both upper and lower on the side that is squeaking.

Try replacing the front end wheel baring(s) If it is a roar that you can hear resonating from the windows, this is most likely it.
