2002 Dodge Stratus Problems
A plugged AC evaporator drain tube can cause a water leak inside the car; usually near the front passenger's feet.

When a no start condition is caused by a faulty camshaft or crankshaft sensor, related fault codes stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) should not be trusted. Our technicians tell us that under certain conditions a fault code can be stored for the "good" sensor. Care should be taken to properly diagnose this condition.

2002 Dodge Stratus Reviews
My 2002 stratus is great, but lately as I'm driving it loses power, my RPM needle goes down and then the engine shuts off, it's not the fuel pump, so sometimes this happens not very often.
I love my 02 Dodge Stratus. It has alot of miles but it keeps on going. At least, it did until today. The left front steering knuckle and lower tie rod completely separated. I have looked on the internet and have found recalls for just this problem. How can I verify the recall notices and if I can't get verification of recall notices, how much will it cost me for repairs?
