Try removing your A.I.S. (automatic idle speed) motor, and clean the plunger, and port that the plunger goes into with throttle body cleaner or similar. Quite often this gets gummed up & sticky and will cause it to stall or idle down real low, especially when a load on engine, such as AC on, turning, etc. The purpose of this part is to step-up the idle, automatically when those conditions occur. If it shows improvement, for a while, then starts doing it again, I'd put a new one on.

Why would 2000 Dodge Stratus have rough idle, die, and now won't start anymore?


The oil change was not done correctly, The filter was not tightened sufficiently so it leaked out and contacted hot engine parts, resulting in the smoke. The lack of oil in the engine may have damaged it.

2001 Hyundia Sonata changed 4 alternators in 6 months, figure it has to be something else. Car will start and run fine and then will die while driving. Will start up again sometimes on its own and...


Two ways the the battery was the problem:
1. It was not the right voltage battery installed.
2. It was a faulty battery...which is very possible.
As of right now, you Sonata runs, correct?

99 dodge stratus, has rough idle when brakes are applied. Car is running, if Iput in park it runs fine. Check engine light is not on.


Sounds like an issue with the brake booster - either the booster itself has a leaky seal, or maybe the brake booster line has a leak. Could also be the brake booster check valve.

Car running hot, clicking noise in dash when turn the heater on


Thermostate goes bad (it might be placed it reverse way) or gatting stuck not opening. Engine might die it you wont have it checked ASAP. Also if you bought an aftermarket cap (not for GM) it might cause the ptoblem with coolant pressure. Check that it says for how much psi.
Hope that helps
Good Luck
