Question about 2006 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Battery light came on and 2006 dodge stratus makes a strange whirring noise. What is this? I just started last night

The car was fine when I started it and halfway to our destination, it began to make a strange whirring sound and the battery light came on. It starts without a problem so it has to be something else

It sounds like the bearings in your alternator are going so it's charging your battery but no a 100%.

It sounds like your starter needs cleaned or replaced. The poping noise could be the actuator not engaging right. As for the engine light, it could be just a coincidence.

MOST LIKELY HAS A PLUGGED TRANSMISSION FILTER.
TORQUE CONVERTOR CLUTCH FAILURE COMMON.
CHANGE TRANSMISSION FILTER AND ROAD TEST.
IF NOISE IS GONE AND RUNS NORMALLY, CHANGE TORQUE CONVERTOR AND RESEAL TRANSMISSION.

Could be the fuel pump, filter , alternator or the coils. Check the oil level , then when you rotate the key to the position before starting listen to hear if there is a whirring sound followed by a bunch of clicking . This is a good sound and means it's not your fuel pump is good ( whirring). And the clicking will be the injectors.. If no sound check the fuel pump fuse and see if its blown. Next check and see if your alternator belt is still in one piece . If it is try a cheap tester for the alternator/ battery . ( most likely a fuel pump problem or plugged fuel filter because you mentioned it was starting to run funny , cut out but you managed a restart.) if it is the coils the first sign is usually a horrible gas mileage then a rough idle in the following days. Also check to see if the battery I fully charged... sounds like it was but weak batteries can cause lots of mishaps that seem unrelated. Personally I'd concentrate on the fuel or fuel fuses.

Ck your alternator output, should be between 13.8 and 14.2 volts, A bad alt will cause the battery to discharge when driving, Once voltage drops to a certain level (9.8 I think ) the ecm starts to shut down causing all kinds of strange problems, like running bad ,trans not shifting right, even the radio ! It happened to me in my 95 chev p/u

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.

99 cavalier battery light comes on but new battery....


it sounds to me like it could be the alternator im afraid but the only real cheap way to tell is time. if you continue to drive this and keep a check on wether it still starts or lights dim, with it being a new battery it is going to take a while fot it to go flat. if it does then try not to drive it too much as this will break it and cost you even more.

STARTING PROBLEM


If it is a really fast "whir" sound then it sounds like your starter has a dead spot.
