Hi: I have a 2002 Stratus 2.7 engine. Today kicked out a PO420 code, bank 1. No others. Talked to several local mechanics who all referred me to "Joe" who they considered to be an expert. I wanted to see if he could pin down if cat was bad, or bad O2 sensor. His normal diagnostic charge is $90 but he refused to do it, says would waste my money. He says this vehicle/engine, I have to go to dealer and have both converters and all 4 sensors replaced with factory parts. Says for this vehicle/engine, after market parts won't work. What say ye ? thanks, Mark
I have just replaced the water pump and put ti back together and ran it. it runs great but after ten min, a clapping noise started to happen. Timing marks were all on, there is no problem with the engine, however i did put the end of a coat hanger in the tensioner the get the oil out and reset the tensioner, i may have damaged the little ball valve at the end of the tensioner? If the valve is not working what doe's that do to the tensioner, not shur if thats the problem or not like i said the engine runs good!!

I have a 97 stratus es with 2.5v6, the car has been great! Although my brakes have started squealing extremely loud, I just replaced brakes and rotors in may! I upgraded to the better brakes cause I had always had some brake noise and was told to upgrade to these pads to relieve that noise, now when I hit the brakes I'm getting loud squealing out of the drivers front brake and feels as if it's pulling or digging into the rotor! I have taken it to numerous mechanics and even paid $80 for a dodge dealership to find out what's wrong and nobody can find anything! I personally thought I had a stuck caliper but everyone says that they are good, brake pads r <75%, rotors are new.... I have no clue what else can be done at this point but is annoying to have your car sounding so bad yet can't get it fixed even though you want too! It's not the tires or a balance issue or a rotation issue or alignment! It is brakes but everything checks out fine???

how much to fix passanger side front and rear door damange from and accident
AFTER I TURN THE ENGINE OFF THERE IS A STEADY STREAM OF WATER JUST BEHIND THE PASSENGER'S SIDE WHEEL IF IT IS THE WATER PUMP WHAT IS THE COST OF REPLACING IT.
mechanics keep saying it costs more to fix the problem because of how much work it would take, than it would to just replace the motor. the price i was quoted was around $2,000 for labor and parts to replace motor. Car can still run but makes horrible noise and cant gain much speed now. I need to know if this is the best option and price....
