How do i tighten the timing belt tension on a 1999 dodge stratus

The belt tensioner is not adjustable. To loosen a tensioner you would swivel the belt tensioner away from the belt with a long flex wrench or ratchet and to tighten the belt you would let the spring in the tensioner move the swivel back into the tight position. An internal spring tightens the tensioner pulley against the belt. You will need to get a smaller belt or replace the tensioner if the belt is "too loose" after you swivel it back into the tight position against the belt and release pressure.

Emergency brake adjustment

There are 2 ways. It has rear drum in hat style brakes, meaning it has pads and rotors for basic brakes, but incorporated in the rotor is a drum with park brake shoes inside. Remove rear pads and rotors, check the condition of the park brake shoes. Tighten the star wheel adjuster while installing the rotor, keep repeating until rotor feels snug pushing on. Repeat other side reassemble. If still doesn't feel tight, there is an adjustment nut on the left rear side on the cable. The nut is where the 2 rear cables meet, it can be tightened. Do not tighten first, if you ever need park brake shoes later they will not allow the rotors to go back on.

Dodge Stratus-1999.I do not have the owners manual for this car. Rear drum-brakes with half-moon adjusters and small springs. How do these adjusters work.and how the small springs are important?...

Try backing up and pulling the emergency brake until the car stops, to adjust the brakes.This works on some cars....not for sure on yours.

99 Dodge Ram 1500 2x4 rear brakes not working, shoes are like new only 60,000 miles on truck. front brakes appear to be the only ones working.

Try bleeding the lines. Put a 2 foot long vacuum hose on the bleeder screw, and submerse the other end in a bottle of brake fluid. Loosen the bleeder screw, and pump brakes until there are no more bubbles coming out of the hose. Tighten screw. Make sure the reservoir is full at all times. Adjust brakes if necessary.

How do you put on drum disk and colaps the shoe pads

If they are drum brakes, make sure you turn the self adjustment screw all the way closed. If they are disc brakes you need to use a brake tool to screw the calliper piston in. Just loosen the bleeder valve and screw the piston in counter clockwise.
