2003 Dodge Stratus ProblemsRecall to inspect front, lower ball joints
A gear whine or whistling type noise heard when accelerating or coasting between approximately 65mph and 85mph may actually be caused by an improperly seated steering column boot. The steering column boot seals the steering shaft as it passes through the firewall.
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.
2003 Dodge Stratus QuestionsMy stratus is whining and not shifting. Is there a sensor for the transmission that could be the problem!? Or maybe the steering column boot (2 answers)
If I wait until the next day, it might start. A friend said that it's either the crankshaft sensor or the modulator. What do you think
2003 Dodge Stratus RecallsPassenger Sun Visor May Detach In Collision
The passenger side sun visor may detach if an accident occurs with it in the down position, and the passenger front air bag is deployed, striking it. Dealers will install a tether strap to retain the visor free of charge to resolve the concern.
The fuel return line fitting on the fuel pump may be restricted, increasing the potential for a fuel leak due to excessive fuel pressure. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can result in a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel pump pressure and modify those showing higher than normal fuel pressures. The recall began December 15, 2003. The Chrysler recall number is C38.
