Question about 2000 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

2000 Stratus will not start

Had a timing belt break and trash the engine. I replaced the engine and new one will not start unless the cam position sensor is removed. I have installed new cam and crankshaft position sensors. When started with cam sensor removed the engine runs real rough. Timing appears to be correct. Any suggestions?

There were actually 4 diffrent engines of the same size avaliable for your vehicle. The difference in the engine's was in the way that the flywheel is "clocked". It is very possible that even though the engine is the same size, it still could be the wrong engine. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but i myself have run into this exact froblem a few times on dodge and chrysler products

2000. Nisan maxima is it a interference motor when it jumps timing


the maxima engine has been identified as an intereference engine and valve damage is most likely to occur ( autodata timing belts publication)
timing is unlikely to jump unless the belt breaks or the belt tensioner becomes loose
if there is a timing problem then the engine will be difficult to start , or run very badly
If the motor starts and runs but lacks power or performance or just does not start then it is suggested to have the fault codes read to check for cam/crank position sensors and immobiliser operation

Compression test on 2000 dodge 2.4l


Most probably... All these modern DOHC engines have interference designs that play havoc when belt fails... valves can collide with piston or between them too. To check without opening engine, you could remove timing belt cover and timing belt, and carefully rotate one cam to feel if it binds or not. But engine starting points to a jumped tooth on belt reinstallation (bent valves would not even allow engine to restart! Amclaussen.

Effect of deffective timing belt


If the timing belt breaks, the engine will not start because the valves will not open. If the belt is loose and still turning the cam, the engine may start but will not have the right compression.

the 2.0 liter is an interference engine and valve damage can occur if the belt brakes.

the 2.4 liter is not an interference engine

the 2.5 liter is an interference engine and valve damage can occur if the timing belt breaks.

Broken timing belt on 2004 dodge Stratus


It can happen, I'm not sure if you car is one of these. But when a timing belt breaks you take a gamble that your car is not one of these.
That is why the timing belt should be replaced every 60,000 miles!
Sorry!

Bronken Timing belt. Could this have damaged other things in car


If you 2000 Dodge Stratus is equipped with either the 2.0 Liter (SOHC) 4 cylinder engine or the 2.5 Liter (SOHC) V6 then you have serious engine damage. Both these engines are interference engines. When the belt breaks the pistons will make contact with the valves thus causing damage. The belt on the 4 cylinder should have been replaced at 100,000 miles. The belt on the V6 should have been replaced at 60,00 miles. At 60 mph you for sure are going to have some damage. How much damage, you will know when they open it up.

2000 dodge stratus turns but wont start, checked timing belt, fuel pump distributer and fuses. Any other suggestions?


You need to check to see if it's a fuel problem or an electrical problem. Is there adequate spark at the plugs? If so, check for fuel problems. Clogged filter, bad fuel pump, bad gas.. Get car scanned for codes at most parts stores for free. Could be a CPS crank position sensor or cam position sensor. If crank sensor is bad, will not start. Get codes checked first.
