2001 Dodge Stratus Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2001 Dodge Stratus

A plugged AC evaporator drain tube can cause a water leak inside the car; usually near the front passenger's feet.

Spark plug tube seals fail, causing the tubes to fill with engine oil and the engine to misfire. As a result, the engine may run poorly and fuel economy can suffer.

One or both windshield washer nozzles may plug or clog. There are revised washer nozzles available which are more resistant to plugging.

Had to replace tie-rod ends, valve cover seal (that was a bitch getting to the bolts in the back), PCM went out, door window motor. Paint has held up and the interior looks great still. I'm getting a whistling from the das...

Bought the SE 4 cyl. automatic as a B'day present to myself, after driving several Stratus rental cars used for road trips. The only problem I had while it was still under warranty was the speedometer needle started bobbing back and forth. That was a little scarey, but no problems after that.
