1999 Dodge Stratus Problems

Engine Misfire Due to Oil in Spark Plug Tubes

Spark plug tube seals fail, causing the tubes to fill with engine oil and the engine to misfire. As a result, the engine may run poorly and fuel economy can suffer.

Engine Does Not Start and PCM Fault Code Stored

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.

Heating & Air Conditioning Fan unit only works in certain positions

If the Heating A/C fan only works in certain positions ie. 3&4 but not 1 or 2. You most likely need a new blower motor resistor.

Good reliable car runs and drives great. We bought the Stratus in 2003 with 40,000 after doing that time never once gave us a problem. I am still happy to be driving this car its at 185,000 no issues with nothing or breakdowns. Took care of everything on car oil changes, filters, plugs, brakes, rotations and more would not retired yet on us being a good little car ever owned. It was 1st car eve...
We have a 99 Stratus we bought new with a v 6 & we love it. I change the oil every 3,000 miles, & rotate the tires every other oil change. It has 150,000 miles on it & still gets 29 MPG on the highway.
My 1999 Stratus has over 218,000 miles on it and it is still running strong, needs new tie rod ends and shocks though...very reliable car
