ODB II code reader will need to be use to determin the issue. They can be purchased at automative stores, or some auto parts stores will read it for free, as then they can sell your parts needed

I have a 1998 dodge stratus. 2.4 L 4 cyl engine. smoke began coming from the back aarea of engine just in front of dashboard; radiator full. not running hot. oil level ok. no leak. no light indicato

Could be oil dripping from the valve cover onto the exhaust pipe.
One drip can cause alot of smoke when it hits the pipe.
Could be power steering fluid too.

After driving my 2001 dodge stratus it draws coolant out of the reserve tank and I smell coolant. I have changed the thermostat and hoses so far. What is up?

Do you see white smoke from the exhaust? If so you may have a blown head gasket especially if this engine has overheated. Check the oil level and if it is overfull and looks like a cup of coffee with creme in it, you have coolant in the oil. Remove the oil cap, and if you see a foamy broth under the cap that is another sign of an internal coolant leak. If you see none of this then you have a leak somewhere. Fill the reservoir and radiator with coolant. Park the car over a clean driveway. Start the engine and then let it sit and run until you see where the leak is coming from.

Sounds like your oil ran low and the pistons and rods are runnig without oil. This will seize the engine check your oil if it is real low put some oil in it and try to start it. If it starts you got lucky. Tahn find out how you lost all your oil before runnig it to much. If the engine doen't turn over than your motor is no good.

1995 dodge stratus smells like something burning, can't find any leaks. Smoke at back of motor. Temp gauge goes half way when I smell it. It never runs hot. What can this be???

sounds like oil leaking on the exhaust, this can be engine oil or power steering fluid, have the car put up in the air and checked, this can cause a fire if not repaired.

2001 Dodge Stratus,, Please Help

I've had the same problem with mine in the past,Replace the gas cap. Look to see if present cap has any cracks in the rubber seal, If so replace it and wait a few days for it to go out. And be sure it is on as tight as possible before the "Clicking sound starts..."

Your engine is toast. The black smoke indicates more than likely your valve seals are leaking oil into the combustion chamber or the piston rings are shot.

Time for a new vehicle...
