Question about 1996 Dodge Stratus

5 Answers

Hi I have a 1995 Dodge Stratus that I have a problem with the right rear wheel getting hot and omitting a strong burning odour after driving it for a few miles. I took it to a mechanic and he felt it was my emergency brake sticking, why he thought this to be the solution as after he applied the emergency brake on & off the right wheel would not turn freely with the emergency brake off it would drag a bit when turned. After he adjusted it, it seemed to correct the problem. But after I had been driving around again the wheel got hot again and omitting the same odour. Is there a solution to this type of problem??

It's the rubber hose which connects the steel brake line to the wheel cylinder. The local dealership said this is a common problem for them to break down and trap fluid pressure in cylinder or caliper. Happened to me on all four wheels, after I cut the ebrakes ;)

Something in the park brake/E-brake mechanism is corroded or otherwise damaged, it could also be a sticking cable due to water or salt intrusion ( don't know were you live), it will have to be taken apart and the parts looked at to solve the issue, there is no other way to fix this sticking issue. I feel the mechanic that advised you on this problem was for the most part correct, he just did not go far enough to fix it right the 1st time.

Have you checked the REAR whell bearings? Sometimes even when the noise appears to come from the front, the rear bearing can be the ones. Happende to me in my older Spirit R/T. By spinning the rear Wheel with an old impulsor motor in a Wheel balancing/alignment shop, the technician showed me that it wasn't a front drive problema, but rear bearings getting some moisture inside and going bad. It made a worse glowl when turning to one side. Amclaussen.

Installing a battery for a 2000 dodge stratus


You have a hot side wire and a cold sire wire. The hot is red and the cold is black. Unhook your hot side first and the cold side last. You might have to take off the battery holder, which is just a botl or two that hold the battery in position. The battery should be on the right side. If you don't see it, the battery is in the right side fender. You will have to remove the front wheel to get to it.

Valve body in the bottom of the transmission has valves that ware out and the oil is thick when it is cold and when the oil gets hot it gets around the ***** out valves thus shifting back in to first could be the 2-1 downshift valve.

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.

2005 Hyundai Sonata. Rear wheels very HOT


Did you remember to release the e brake?

Sounds like brakes hanging, foot on brake, or something that causes brakes to be on all the time, at least a little.

Yes this will damage everything that you described..and more. Brakes will work poorly...

My 1995 Dodge Stratus is making a noise coming from the front end


Sounds like it is time for some ball joints. There is no way to grease them, and when they start squeaking, it is time for replacement. Do both upper and lower on the side that is squeaking.

Cant get started


if you say it is getting gas and is firing take spark plugs out it is probably flooded replace them with new plugs before re installing them let the spark plugs stay out for a hour so gas that is in cylinders may evaporate! and if you did flood it pull dip stick if strong gas odour is present you might want to change the oil most times when flooded all the gas runs down in crank case polluting the oil badly smart to change it once you get it running again good luck.

Premature Brake pad wear.


Don't rule out faulty brake hose either. For the price of it, I'd replace hose, and or caliper, and lube properly when re-installed.
