I just recharged my air conditioner in my car and now the AC only works half the time. The half of the time it just blows warm air.
I just had the EGR Valve and the valve gasket (between the valve and the Y-tube) on a 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT with a 2.7L engine. The engine isn't flex fuel. I was charged $272 for parts and labor. Is that the right price or thet a bit excessive? I had it done through a Howard-Wilson dealer/service center. Then I was charged a hazardous material charge. There wasn't any hazardous material to dispose of. For that I was charged $18.20 . In addition, I got my spark plugs changed. I'd already purchased the plugs so I was charged $73 for labor. It's important to know this. Please help.
I have a 1998 Dodge Stratus. The tail lights do not come on when the brake is applied but the running lights work after I replace the bulbs. How can I get all my tail lights working again?

I have a 2006 dodge stratus and its occasionally making a humming which turns into a helicopter sound while driving. But when I am at a light or in a drive through where it is out of gear or sitting it will click over and make a Loud diesel engine sound. I am thinking its my AC so I turn off the AC and it goes away but only for alittle bit. Then it comes back, just not as loud.
My daughter thinks its the air filter "something inside of it" even the "DODGE dealership" was baffeled.

Heres my problem, when i turn the ingnition switch to crank the engine, nothing happens, everything from my radio to the display panel turn on but you cant hear nothing but the fuel pumpm activating, the engine is not turning, now i checked all fuses, and relays, i checked the connector to the starter motor and i DO NOT recieve voltage, i can however Ohm out the connector which is good, now the "starter" relay connector at pin 86 is supposed to recieve 12 volts when ingnition is activated, but it doesnt, also my "auto" shut down relay on pin 86 has constant voltage (12volts) even when my ignition switch is in the off position. I am not supposted to have no voltage at either relay at pin 86 when ignition is off, the only voltage present should be at pin 30 which i do get. i believe i have a short somewhere in my PCM unit can anyone else give me advice? i appreciate your help. thanks
