For the last two weeks I can smell burnt rubber coming from my car and it seems to happen only when I have the heater on. It goes away as soon as I turn it off. What could be the cause of this?

2006 Dodge Stratus Reviews

Play has developed in the crankshaft/harmonic balancer area and in turn the front seal is bad and leaks oil. 140,000 miles on car and being told by mechanic that seal replacement by itself is no good. would need to drop pan and replace at least front main bearing along with seal and with the miles probably the timing belt and water pump as well but cost may be prohibitive and may or may not be worth repairing. Anyone else experienced something like this?

We bought our dodge new in Kitty Hawk NC from a dealer.
The brakes squeak and always have however, the dealer and his repair shop always say that nothing is wrong.
Why then; do the brakes squeak?

We told them about the problem from the beginning. We were told a couple of time that it was only a moisture build-up.....but, why???? just on this car???
And why does it continue to squeak????????????

Bought this car 4 months ago from a dealership..Car had 60000 miles on it..Spent $700 in repairs for oil leak from crank seal..It did same thing again just to find out that the crank has play in it and is knocking seal out..Told I need to replace engine to fix..Dodge only gave 36000 mile warranty for this car for good reason it seems..They do not stand behind what they sell or it would have the 100000 mile warranty the love to advertise on TV..Now I have a car that I owe $5000 and is worth $0 unless I spend another $3000 or more to fix it!! Never buy another Chrysler product..I should have known better..

I bought this car a 2006 it has been a good car but now at 75000 mil. thing are going wrong the Fuel Pump is going out now with the brakes,a/c ,heater, and now the 0-2 is bad. one more thing this car should be getting 22mpg city 33mpg highway. but i get 21mpg all the time.
