Question about 1999 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

My daughter had her timing belt changed in her 2000 dodge stratus es, now it stalls and sounds like **** when idling, my boyfriend seems to think it's a bent valve please help. Never stalled before and she has only owned the car for a month. It was having an issue before the timing belt broke whenever she would come up to a stop light the oil light would come on, when she accelerated the light would go out.

Lets not panic about oil light just yet. What may I ask, did the mechanic who changed the timing belt say when you asked him about the possibility that he didn't install it correctly?

2000 dodge stratus 2.4l dohc stalls at stops starts up with very light touch of gas pedal may or may not stall again for a coule stops but will again rpms go from around 800 at idle to 500 then 200 th


If it's fuel-injected, you may need to have the injectors cleaned, and also, any air filters should be changed at the same time along with gas filter/s. If it's carbureted, the same as above, but have someone clean the carburetor completely. Make sure all air hoses are attached correctly, securely and NOT broken. If broken, replace them.

2000 Stratus ES all the fan belts came off due to age, how difficult is it to put new fan belts on and the proper procedure to install.


If I am not mistaken there should only be one Power steering belt and on alternator belt.. my bigger concern is if your belts were so old that it came off then how old is your timing belt? Much like your other belts it is made of rubber and is designed to be replaced at different mileage intervals. I would highly recommend that you get your vehicle to a Mechanic and have it changed. This is not a cheap repair but much cheaper than bent valves if that belt breaks too.
IF your timing belt had been changed then they would have also replaced your other belts, also have the water pump replaced while they are replacing your timing belt as it runs off the timing belt.

On a 1997 Dodge Stratus, 106,000 miles, just replaced timing belt and head gasket. Car idles rough but seems to run fine when driving down road.


You've replaced the timing belt as a prevention maintenance or it has failed? In case of failure was made also a valve job? Why changing the head gasket? Are the spark plugs and cables new? the answer will bw within these questions...
