Hello, just wanted to know when do my 2004 dodge stratus need a tune up, it has 71500 miles on it now. Also what other maintenance should I look to get for a car to keep it running and healthly, no...

Well, you didn't mention which engine your Sratus is equipped with, so I can't give you any specifics on your engine.
The best thing you can do is change the oil, and when you are done changing the oil, change it again. When you are done changing it again, start over. :) I cannot count all of the engines that I have seen go to an early grave because the oil was not changed regularly. I have customers that regularly go 1000, 2000, or more miles over on their oil changes, then cry the blues when the engine blows up.

If your engine is equipped with a 2.4L engine, you need to make sure the timing belt and related components are replaced when they should be. The service interval is 90,000 miles.
Don't skimp and replace just the belt. Spend the extra money and do it right! The pullies and the water pump that the belt rides on also have the same mileage as the belt and will fail and cause the belt to fail before it would be due again. I have seen several people pay their hard-earned cash to replace the belt only, just to have the tensioner pulley or the water pump fail 10,000 miles later and destroy the new belt and cause severe engine damage.

If you have the 2.7 engine, this is not an issue because it is a chain-driven engine.

For more information on the maintenance of your vehicle, it would be best to read your Owner's Manual.

What's the steps if changing water pump for a

I suggest getting the Haynes service manual for this vehicle. The number of steps needed to do this job are too numerous to list in the space available. If your engine is the 2.4L four cylindar, it is the same procedure used to change the timing belt. If you are going into the water pump on this engine, you may as well change the belt and tensioner pulley. If you do not have a well equipped garage, I would not attempt this job.

2002 stratus change water pump 2.7

This is a job for a shop. You will need to replace the pump and all timing chain parts. If there is water in the oil, that is very BAD. Bearings dont like anti freeze.

2002 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9L V8 leaking coolant out of what looks to be a weep hole from the water pump. Is my water pump bad, or just a seal (gasket)?

If the coolant is coming out of the weep hole on the pump then the pump will need to be replaced to correct the problem. Hope this will help you.

Coolant leaking on drivers side? have replace resevior and wateroutlet

Sounds very much like a water-pump.

Look for a leak below the water pump.
If so we believe the inter seal of the water pump to be the failure, this will result in a coolant weep coming from the weep hole near the center shaft of the water pump.

Replace the water pump.

We hope this tip guides to to your solution.
