Question about Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

I have a 2002 dodge stratus that when you are traveling right around 50 mph all of a sudden it will buck or hesitate. When the accelerator is pushed it will go away most of the time but sometimes it makes the hesitation worse. Could this be a transmission problem or engine.

Speedometer not working properly example traveling at 50 mph on speedometer had not accelerated or decelerated and suddenly speedometer showing 90


passenger side of vehicle, the tail shaft of the transmission has a VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor)
that is most likely the culprit, it has a 2 pin plug and a 10MM bolt holding it in.

Hesitation at 40mph and 50 mph.


A pop and hesitation is likely a backfire. The hesitation around 40 and 50 would be in keeping with that theory. There are several reasons you might be getting backfires and hesitation. If your ECM is adjusting the engine to run too rich this could happen. Misfiring might be occuring. Timing could be out. But one of the most likely is a restricted exhaust, likely due to a plugged, damaged or worn out catalytic converter. In some cases the converter may be bad enough to be giving you some performance problems, but not yet quite bad enough to signal an error. A vacuum test can help confirm whether this is exhaust related.

Engine seems to be missing


it sounds right, it is called a light load miss. it occurs mostly at 45-50 mph on slight incline and it feels like a bucking or hesitation. It commonly ocurs when there is carbon tracking on a spark plug porcelin (sp) . note . if the porcelin has carbon tracking so does the plug wire boot. the spark will travel through the carbon track in teh boot after plug replacement causing premature failure of the plug. it is a good idea to replace plugs and wires if this is the cause of your miss.
